Tournament scene in Poland and recent additions to the 6th edition

Monday, May 12th, 2014

This is translation of an article which was originally published in Polish Podsumowanie wpływu ostatnich zmian 6 edycji na rzeczywistosc turniejową w Polsce.

Some of my international readers (only about 30% of this blog’s readers are from Poland) may be interested in how Polish tournament scene have accepted recent additions to 40k 6th edition.

I have recently browsed Polish 40k league forums and checked rulesets for tournaments in various places. Since March (release of Imperial Knight codex) there were 38 tournaments in our country.

On 7 of them Escalation rules were used and on 11 IK codex was allowed. In most cases Destroyer Weapons were homeruled as S:10 with some additions (armourbane, instant death, ignores cover, but nothing consistent).

I don’t know if it’s good that SH vehicles are becoming common on tournaments, but this unequal approach of some Tournament Organizers (where Imperial Knights are OK but Lords of War are not) appears to be a bit irrational.

7th edition reactions: unbelieving and fear?

Of rumors on upcoming 7th edition, most widely discussed are:
- Unbound army-lists
- Demonology (no one knows how it is supposed to work but it is assumed that it allows to summon greater daemon at psykers will)
- Magic Phase (in principle just like in WHFB)
- Reinventing allies chart
- Inclusion of Escalation rules in core rulebook (Lords of War)
