Default [Apocalypse] Spawning Spawn Formation.

Thought this would be loads of fun. Also, does it sound over powered at all? This is a rough idea, for what will be a final finished idea.

Background: Words words words.

Formation +100pts

Requirement

6+ full units of Chaos Spawn.

One unit of spawn must be identified as the 'lead spawn'

Special Rules

Deployment
All spawn unit must deploy at least one model within 12" of a model from the lead spawn unit. If coming in from reserves, all units in the formation must enter play within 12" of a model from the lead spawn unit.

If there is not enough room to place a mode within 12" of the lead spawn unit (Many spawn), then the extra spawns unit must be placed within 6" of a unit within 12" of the lead spawn unit.

Spawning Spawn.

Whenever a model is Killed in close combat by a chaos spawn in this formation, at the end of that round of combat roll a d6 per model killed. On a roll of a 6+ the model is turned into a chaos spawn under the chaos players command and joins a random unit of spawn in that combat. This can bring spawn unit above the maximum unit size.

If there are no Chaos Spawn left in the close combat, the new spawn generate their own unit and are locked in combat with any enemy models that were in the same combat. These new spawn count as being part of the formation.

Nice formation!

But how do you get a 6+ with a D6? It's impossible unless you roll a 6!

I've rolled higher than 6 on a D6 before. I split the die and it had two sides facing up. :P

Perhaps there is some rule out there which modifies dice rolls. Gotta keep the options open .

3rd edition was full of "6+" listings. It was mainly there to cover situations with bonuses.
