Default How Many Baneblades . . . .

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I am posting it here.

I didn't play last night, Illness (again ) but I found out one of my potential opponents was planning on fielding TWO Baneblades in a regular 1500 Point Imperial Guard Army.

Surely, beyond the actual fact you need permission for field a Baneblade from your opponent - this is illegal!?!?!?!

Advice please, before I go off on one!

Well.. a baneblade from a IA book is classed as a seperate detachment, so yeah you need permission.
And usually Detachments were 1500+ before you could have one..

Superheavies are only fun and should only be used where both players are using them or they agree one can,


Stupid kids..

Take their Apocolypse rulebook....

And hit them over the head 20 times.

That is clearly stupidity and they should grow up.

Meh, I think it's fine as long as it's not meant to be a competitive match. Afterall it's simply representing a small part of a much larger battle. A last stand of infantry and light support trying to stave off the brutal frontal assault of the Imperial guard in one small part of the battlefield sounds fun to me. ;D

If it's meant to be a competitive game though...that's just lame (and against the rules). If that's the case I guess you just need to take a couple of fast anti-tank units to hit that rear armour and watch most of his points go up in flames. :P

It depends on the rules of the Baneblade in question.

If he would be using Apocalypse rules, than no way - this would never be a fun game. Dropping those big templates in a normal game just isn`t fun.

So, no, this isn`t legal. Apocalypse units may not be used outside Apocalypse, and FW rules need the opponent`s permission.

Cheers,
-Bone

PS: Take one of those Baneblades, put it in a really big sock, and then beat the stupid right out of him.

Play necrons then, and have some liths, or just gauss it to death if he tries it with you.
