SCENARIO SPECIAL RULES TRANSMISSION ANTENNA There is 1 Transmission Antenna placed in the center of the table. The Antenna must be represented by a Transmission Antenna Marker (TRANS. ANTENNA) or with a scenery piece of the same diameter (Such as the Communications Array by Warsenal or the Sat Station Antenna by Customeeple). CONTROL THE TRANSMISSION ANTENNA The Transmission Antenna is considered Controlled by a player when he is the only one who possesses a Troop (as a figure, but not as a Marker) in base contact with it. So there cannot be enemy Troops in base contact with the Transmission Antenna. Models in Null state do not count for this. As stated in the Main Objectives, if the trooper that Controls the Antenna is a TAG (or a trooper possessing the Pilot or Remote Pilot Special Skill), the player gains 3 additional Objective Points. PANOPLIES There are 2 Panoplies, placed in the central line of the table 12 inches from the edges of the table (see map below). Each Panoply must be represented by an Objective Marker or by a scenery piece of the same diameter.

SCENARIO SPECIAL RULES SECTIONS At the end of the game, the table is divided in four 24x12 inches Sections as seen on the map. Then, each player checks how many Sections he is dominating and Objective Points are counted. In this scenario each Quadrant is considered a Zone of Operations (ZO). DOMINATE ZO A Zone of Operations (ZO) is considered Dominated by a player if he has more Army Points than the adversary inside the area. Only troops represented by miniatures or Markers (Camouflage, Spawn-Embryo, Seed-Embryo...) count, as well as AI Beacons, Proxies and G: Servant Troops. Troops in a Null state do not count. Markers representing weapons or pieces of equipment (like Mines or Deployable Repeaters), fake Holoechoes, and any Marker that does not represent a trooper does not count either. A trooper is inside a Zone of Operations when more than half the trooper’s base is inside that ZO. SHASVASTII Troops possessing the Shasvastii Special Skill that are inside a Zone of Operations count while they are in the Spawn-Embryo state or any non-Null state. BAGGAGE Troops possessing the Baggage piece of Equipment that are inside a Zone of Operations and any non-Null state also count, providing the extra Army Points this piece of Equipment grants. CONSOLES There are 4 Consoles, placed in the center of each Quadrant, each of them 12 inches from the edge of the table (See map below).

Non-specialist troops cannot Control the Console, but can prevent the enemy from Controlling it by being in base contact with it. Troopers in a Null state (Unconscious, Dead, Sepsitorized...) cannot do either.

Hackers, Doctors and Engineers cannot make use of Repeaters or G: Servant models to perform tasks reserved to Specialist Troops. 1 Remember: Troops with the Specialist Troop Special Skill can accomplish the different functions Specialist Troops have in this scenario. A Specialist Trooper with a Disabled Marker can still accomplish the Objectives of this scenario.

The trooper chosen must be always one of the models deployed on the game table. Players are not allowed to choose troopers in Hidden Deployment or in Marker state. This trooper must always be on the game table as a model and not as a Marker (Camouflaged, TO, Holoecho...). Also, Irregular troops and those whose Troop Type is REM are not eligible to be DataTrackers. The DataTracker is identified with a DataPack Marker (DATA PACK). The DataTracker must be in a non-Null state to provide the extra Objective Point. INTELCOM CARD (SUPPORT AND CONTROL / INTERFERENCE) Before the beginning of the game, but after choosing the Classified Objective, the player must inform to his adversary if that card will be his Classified Objective or his INTELCOM Card. Each player rolls a die and the one who gets the highest score must be the first who announces his decision to his adversary. The content of the card, whether the mission or the card numeric value, is considered Private Information, no matter which use the player has chosen for it. At the end of the third Game Round when the game ends and the players count up their points following the order established by the Initiative, the player can use his INTELCOM Card applying the Support and Control Mode or the Interference Mode, at his choice: SUPPORT AND CONTROL MODE The player can add the value of the INTELCOM Card to the total Army Points he has in the Zone of Operations (ZO) of his choosing, but only if he has at least one trooper in a non-Null state inside that ZO. INTERFERENCE MODE The player can use his INTELCOM Card applying the Interference Mode, to nullify the Special Rule Specialist Troop or the Special Skill Specialist Operative at his choice. END OF THE MISSION This scenario has a limited time frame, so it will automatically finish at the end of the third Game Round. If one of the players starts his active turn in a Retreat! state, the game will end at the end of that Turn.

  6. Fall Infinity League

    Alright folks, it's time to actually do this! This upcoming Saturday (9-16) we will be practicing and teaching people the game. Starting next Saturday (9-23) we will start the league at 100 points. That's less than what comes in a starter box! join us, it's super cheap to get into and is one of the most tactical war games I've ever played! even if you can't afford it, feel free to come down and borrow models and try the game out! Let me know who will be involved so I can get a basic idea.
  7. Fate of Konor

    I'll have new models done for this weekend (maybe), or just as a ringer during the campaign. :)
  8. Phoenix Nest 40k/Infinity Fall 2017 Escalation League

    So i've decided to run the Infinity league a week or so after the current 40k campaign ends. Then after that, we will run the 40k league you all have come to know and love. It would be really awesome if we could get some new people into Infinity and actually play the game some at the store regularly. :)
  9. This is the start of a discussion. I have been far more into Infinity lately than 40k. I want to run both of these events. So I am proposing a four week 40k Escalation league, and a 4 week Infinity Escalation league. How many of you would be interested in me running a league for each of these games this fall? I'm thinking 40k during the end of August until mid September, and Infinity from late september until late october. Maybe shift it back slightly. who would be interested in playing in each league, and who is only interested in one or another?
  10. GW does it again.. broken datasheets

    I paid for it... all of it. I am, in fact, disappointed. I just finished my comprehensive exams for my PhD. I'm not all but diss, and these books were my reward to myself for a year of grueling work. Yeah, some reward.
  11. GW does it again.. broken datasheets

    I dont think the Mega boosta or the Rokkit-Bombs are in the core index. The KFF is, so there's at least an argument for that. But what happens when a model has a special rule that SAYS the same thing as a piece of wargear ,but that piece of wargear is not listed IN the units wargear list. RAW Buzzgob gets the effect of a KFF without having to pay for it. Which makes no sense.
  12. So, I picked up the Xenos 2 FW book, and I must say I'm disappointed. They reduced the number of units by a lot, and some of them don't make any sense. I wont go into stats of weapons and units, as that wont matter (like how they turned a D str weapon into a gun that has a damage value of 2). What I'm really disappointed in is the sloppy copy-editing and the broken sheets. Take Buzzgob for example. He has a KFF's game text in his abilities box, but the KFF is not listed in his equipment. So as far as I can tell, RAW, he has a free KFF that is just an innate ability. Not only that, but the KFF isnt even listed in the points cost for ork wargear in the points section. Then we get to the Meka Dread. It lists the stats for the rokkit bomb rack, but doesnt say you can take one as an upgrade, AND it's not listed in the list for how many points it costs. And since the KFF isnt listed, the Mega charger upgrade isnt listed, there's massive ambiguity if either of the upgrades cost any points. It's just a hot mess that leaves a LOT of loopholes and questions that dont have RAW answers. Irritating as hell. Thanks for humoring my venting, I was just really excited about this release.
  13. Forgeworld Order for the new Indexes, etc.....

    ORKz DUUUUH GET ME THE THING! IT was my birthday on June 7th, you can get it for me for a birthday gift! (kidding) I'm in, I'll pay you when you want me to just let me know how much.
  14. Origins Columbus

    I'd love to, but I'm in crunch time for my comps, and I can't spare an entire Saturday for it.
  15. anyone spliting or trading?

    I'm up for getting my claws on some new marine models, unless they have "U"s on them. if someone wants to split, let me know.
