    Main Rules



    Each army contains 5000 points for the entire campaign

    l Individual games will never consist of all 5000 points. This list is simply a pool with which to generate future lists.

    l Vehicle and individual unit loadout is fixed over the course of the campaign, unless a card is played that allows a redistribution of points or gear.

    l Units have to follow minimum model number, until they are unable to do so. As the game progresses, some units will drop below this minimum. This is ok. However, like units may combine to make larger units, as long as the unit composition rules are adhered to. Once they are combined, however, they may not separate again.

    l Force organization should be adhered to in the creation of the 5000 campaign list



    Force organization, for individual battles, will be enforced unless the commander is unable to do so



    Non-troop units may occupy objectives, as long as they are not vehicles



    Destroyed friendly models, may be salvaged on a per-model basis by the winner, on the roll of a 6 on a d6.

    l All of these rolls may be forfeited to roll attempt the salvage of a single enemy vehicle or a single enemy unit’s wargear on the roll of a 6.

    l The salvaged wargear must be assigned to a specific unit.

    l The wargear shift for this unit is interchangeable from game to game, but the extra wargear is lost if the salvaging unit is destroyed.

    l All salvaged enemy vehicles and wargear fire at a -1 BS.



    Destroyed vehicle weapons, may be salvaged on a per-weapon basis by the winner, on the roll of a 3+ on a d6
