What is this?   Play 3 games in a doubles event. We will be using the "Only War" mission from the Rulebook.  50 Power Level per person. 100 Power Level per team.  No other restrictions.

You can change teams between games.  You can change armies between games.  There will be no official pairings.  After each round,  find new opponents and go at it.

We will start at noon, so folks have time to review their newly bought rulebooks. Trust me, you'll have plenty of time to learn the new rules before rolling dice.  These are intended to be learning games, so run unusual stuff. The more variety we have the more we will all learn some of 8th edition's idiosyncracies. 

If you'd like to get a jump on the competition, show up to the Haven from now until the 17th.  They have all the Indices and the Rulebook so you can start planning out what you want to bring.

Sign up sheet will be at the store as soon as I can get down there to post it.

Fortuna Secunda!

Concerning the team's command points. Could the team make a detachment together beforehand that equals 100 power or do you want them to do a detachment (or I suppose unbound) for 50 power each? I could make some more interesting lists with my partner if we could make our forces a single detachment.

Is there a particular detachment type we should use or is it whatever we can throw together?

With only 50 power level to play with you're probably only looking a:

Patrol Detachment

1-2 HQ

1-3 Troops

0-2 Elites

0-2 Fast Attack

0-2 Heavy Support

0-2 Flyers

But the glory of 8th is that if you don't mind losing command points, you can bring whatever you want.

I think Haspil is intending on us to use whatever we can throw together with 50 power if you so happen to follow a detachment then so be it.
