Egads! Does that mean everything we've playing up until now has been... [shudders] unbound? ;)

Sounds good so far. Just three nitpicks.

First, you probably don't want to give them the "Independent" Special Ability as it has a serious downside. When such a formation fails a Morale check, they are instantly removed from play and considered destroyed rather than being placed on Fall Back orders.

Second, that ability is only relevant to factions that have a Chain-of-Command rule, which Space Marines do not. Marines already act on their own without requiring a Command model within any range of radius from them. Only Imperial Guard, PDF, Orks, & Tyranids need to use that ability as they are the only ones (so far) with a Chain-of-Command requirement.

Third, you are using the word "Formation" in a manner that seems incompatible with its current usage. You said: "So one formation made of 1 company card, 1-5 support cards and a special (maybe). If you choose to use this 'legendary formation' ..." At the moment, the word "Formation" refers to one grouping of models that, generally, must maintain coherency with each other and all share the same Order counter, Break Point, and Victory Points. In other words, what would have been found on one "Card" back in 2nd edition. Thus a Company is one formation (despite each detachment getting its own Orders), each Support is one formation, and the Special is also its own formation. Perhaps "Prebuilt Army" or "Legendary Force" or some other such phrase could be used for them?

Magnus,

1) I meant independent as per normal rules as in they are not tied to the company formation.

2) as per 1

3) agreed I will call them Legendary Force sound better anyway.

cheers

I was looking at these thought it would be good to apply the rules to whole forces.

We are still nailing down what we want all the terms to mean as we move forward, but Legendary Force seems like a good fit. I am actually a little giddy thinking about whether we have the information available to do these in the 40k/Platinum era :)

Hi!

Legendary Force (or legendary formation), sounds like a good term for the concept. :)

Hey Mattman, when do you think we can start pumping out platinum formations?

Mate,

Card are looking very cool indeed. Keep it coming. Will you be doing cards for EA as well?

Cheers
Aaron

Aaron, that's not on the cards yet, I've been in conversation with Yorkie and am looking at a way to do them for Epic 40k (3rd). If it is for the ones with the pictures I'll need to generate my own imagery. If just silhouette they will be in a similar veiin to the ones at the start. Once formations are available for NetEpic I will start producing the graphical representation of Mattman's plans. EA is a bit off but once I've burnt out on my 30k project I may look at them.

Cheers

Cheers,

Bloody nice work so far mate. I really like the 30k verse. The list that Faddex did is a lot of fun to play with. Getting another game in tonight.

Cheers
Aaron
