Squad Smackdown: End of Round One

Hello loyal readers!

Well we made it through all the first series of matches. There weren't too many suprises along the way, but now we have a vicious bunch of close combat squads still in the tournament and its going to get interesting.

The uneliminated squads are as follows:
  • Dark Eldar Wyches
  • Chaos Space Marine Khorne Beserkers
  • Space Wolf Grey Hunters
  • Ork Boyz
  • Tau Kroot
  • Imperial Guard Platoon
  • Grey Knight Terminators
  • Tyranid Genestealers
At this point I'm going to introduce a new rule. This should better represent tabletop "reality", and make combat resolution a little fairer for elite units facing the big squads like Orks, Kroot and Imperial Guard.
  • If a squad fails their leadership test, runs from combat and is not caught, they must immediately make a second leadership test. If they pass the test, the combat continues as normal. If they fail the test, they lose the combat.

We are going to have a week break from the Smackdown before the second round starts. I'd like to stop spamming the blogosphere for a time :) Its also a chance to release some other content - I have a post coming up detailing my Rifleman Dread conversions, and difsta should be dropping some more of his amazing tactics tech any time soon.


  1. Alright, should be some brutal matchups coming! I wouldn't worry too much about spamming, maybe just set a schedule like 2/week or something - as rounds progress, fewer and fewer fights, so will still go pretty quickly.

    Look forward to the dread conversions and other stuff too!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Mr taurus. Great to see you getting into the excitement too :)
