Warlord Games Command Post: Additional Units, FAQ, Guides, Resources, optional rules etc

NOTE: These are Warlord's official resources, not all events are run the same, please refer to a specific event packet or ask an organizer if there are any house rules or restrictions.
AWC House Rules:The Official-UnOfficial for our Chicago Area Group

Platoon Leader: must have at least the same experience level or higher as the majority of your units. That is, if your 5/8 units are rated regular, your officer must be rated regular or veteran and not inexperienced. If equal, the higher level must be used.

Anti-Aircraft and Flak: When determining flak reactionary fire; a unit selected from the “Anti-aircraft Guns” or “Anti-Aircraft Vehicles” section of any army list does not suffer the -2 to hit for fast moving penalty. That penalty still applies to pintle-mounted weapons that have the “flak” special rule; if they were not from anti-aircraft unit sections.

Forest Terrain stands and Line of Site: Clearly delineated tree stands/bases, representing larger forest clumps, follow the SMOKE special rules for determining Line of sight and cover bonus; as per the Bolt Action Main Rule book. See pages 78 and 68 for the rule and diagram.

Armored Transports: Armored transports (7+ armor) can fire one weapon system while empty. Multiple weapons maybe fired while carrying infantry. This is given through the “advance command”, as per the normal rules, you may not shoot when given a run command.

There is, I was just wondering if the FAQ/ Errata changed the rules any?, isn't the deadline for locked rules like Feb 1st...?
just trying to get a handle on any potential changes..

yes the deadline is feb. 1

there wont be many changes, but the HQ requirement will dropped to "the officer must be equal to the experience level of the majority of your units."

while it is awesome that warlord is updating FAQ and errata; we feel that flame tanks are not in the best nature of what we hope to achieve with this event. it is not a cut throat set of games and we dont want to make for completely one sided games from the start. especially given the fact both teams are dealing with 2 platoons, (potential for two flame vehicles if allowed)

I found this-

Flamethrower (vehicles) are now range 12” instead of previously being 18”. Players feel flamethrowers on vehicles are too over powering and most tournaments in the US have started to ban these options. With the range now being 12”, we’ll see if that levels the playing field.

curious to peoples thoughts...actually the new range is comparable historically to other weapon ranges Bolt Action uses
at least they are no longer outranging anti tank weapons which had much longer effective ranges

I'm glad they're out for this event...man portable's are nasty enough....

I'm with you on that. They're nasty and in the hands of a "win at all costs" player could unsettle several games. We don't use them in our regular group, either... just because.

Do any of you (Zoldak) have experience with their actual effect on a game?

Are the links in the first post updated or do you have new ones. Asking because I was going to pin this thread at the top so attendees will have access to it going into Adepticon 2016.
