        1. Hey there snake eyes people! Cory here, just wondering how using blessings psychic powers on paired allies will work? will we be able to use them on anyone paired with us or will we consult the allies matrix in the 6thed Rules

          1. Cory, I amended the event post above to include the following:
            "All Teammates will be treated as Battle Brothers, pg. 112, for purposes of determining who is affected by psyker powers, Warlord traits, etc"

        2. Some day, some time, I would really like if you would run a doubles tournament where we get to pick our partners!

        3. Hey Snake Eyes! Geoff the Russian here. I have a quick question regarding allowances for some Ork FW units: Grot Mini- and Mega- Tanks, rules for which may be found on pages 52 and 53 (respectively) of "Imperial Armour: Apocalypse Second Edition." Are these guys allowed for this tournament?

          1. The Grot Mega Tanks are Heavy Support Choices. The Grot Mini Tanks are Fast Attack. this is per IA8. Looking forward to seeing them!

          2. Okay, small problems there: Mini Tanks are stated as being available as Elites choices to Codex: Orks armies in IA8, and as far as I can tell Mega Tanks have no entry at all in IA8. I'm pretty certain that IA Apoc 2nd Edition is the most recent rules set for both of these units (in which, as well, Mega Tanks are listed as Fast Attack choices). Just wanna be clear on which set of rules I'm supposed to use. I don't think the Mega Tanks have ever been published anywhere else, except for the original experimental pdf on FW's website.

          3. Geoff, use the rules for the Grot Mini and Mega Tanks as they are listed in the newest supplement, which should be IA Apocalypse 2nd Edition.

          4. See page 135, Grot Tank Battle Mob, Fast attack choice.

        4. We have had a couple people mention the rumored Flyer Supplement that is supposed to be released Saturday.
          You cannot use Storm Raven Gunships with Codex Space Marines or Black Templars even though rumor has it both of those armies will be receiving them in the upcoming supplement.
          Even if the rumors are true and the book is released on 2/16 it will not be permissible for this event.
