This army and campaign tracker is a great tool to use the new Crusade system,

New Open War Cards

First set was cool, but it was only interesting because Narrative and Matched were not enough developed ....With the content the 9th have I don't see the point.

No RuleBook ?

Look like there is no rulebook pre order on the 11 outside of the box....also new points are not in the Box but in the CA...Maybe we get some points errata for recent codex. If not you need the box and CA to even play ^^

Points

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

Army Creation & Command points

If you play 40k you get 12 CP at 2000pts and 18 up to 300. Everyone gets this.

warhammer rumour

You also gain CP every turn.

warhammer rumour

Number of Detachments base on the game size

warhammer rumour

Before the battle, you spend these CPs to add Detachment and Put units in reserve. Soup will now cost you extra CP, most of the starting Detachment have rules that refund you CP so you start with 12.
Even if you want to include a Primarch or some greater Daemons...

warhammer rumour

Patrol Detachment
warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

There are multiple rules that refund your CP if your warlord is in the detachment.

warhammer rumour

BattleField

Min size for battlefield are now :

warhammer rumour

This is made to match Kill Team board size.
From what I was told they are going to push for this size in the future and multiple events have already made the jump. Still there is 0% obligation to use the min size.

Terrain

Terrains rules have completely changed ! Now there is 2 type of terrain : Obstacle and Area terrain.
All terrains rules are linked to Keywords that you can add to a terrain piece.
Gw give numerous example of what to use when building a battlefield.

Missions

Mission packs are the new Meta. Each will have theme and rules to make for the most interesting/tactical diverse and Balanced experience.

Missions Pack


  • Mission pack is the new Meta : Missions, Size, restriction, rules, each of the 3 ways to play get a mission pack.

  • Expect Mission pack update when's needed.

  • 18 Matched play mission : 3 for Combat Patrol (500p) 6 missions for incursion (1k) 6 standard (2k) 3 for the bigger games.

  • Each Mission Pack will have different rules, IE : rules of 3 is in the Matched Play Pack.

  • We can imagine future missions packs will have some sort of extra new rules to change meta (IE : Rules of one).

  • Mission Pack allow to encapsulate Matched play and keep things fresh if you need it (meta, top list ...)

  • -Each mission pack will have a theme. (Objective-based, killing enemy army...) A bit similar on how Chater Approved missions had theme.

Objectives



  • Secondary Objective? : Missions are based on Victory Points, a Primary objective to complete based on the mission. Plus a menu of secondary you choose at the start.

  • Expect codex to allow new secondary objectives based on the army theme

  • You pick one per category of secondary (there a multiple).

  • They want you to feel that secondaries obj are linked to your army ! and not arbitrary, very hard or impossible for your list.

  • ie : Raise your Banner: move somewhere and do the action of raising your banner.

  • Actions : is a new interaction, Most actions are based on secondary obj or crusade agenda.

  • There are psychics actions. Different type of actions as well

  • It's made to be robust framework to be used in the future of the 9th.

  • VP are maxed by turn/objectives, that means you can always try to come back later in the game. It sounds like a direct nerf to Alpha army.

  • Thematic Actions stu love : can't say because he love future thing not yet revealed ^^ but finally settled on raise the banner.

  • These new Mechanics offer a lot of new decision to players and will decide the outcome of the game.

warhammer rumour

Strategic Reserve

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

Note :

Strategic Reserves units can’t normally be set up within 9″ of any enemy models, but if you set them up within 1″ of your own battlefield edge, they can be set up within this distance – and even within the 1″ Engagement Range of enemy models! If they do so, they count as having made a charge move, and your opponent will be unable to fire Overwatch against them!

Morale Change

warhammer rumour

Unit Coherency

The end of the Conga line meta ! this is direct nerf to buff bot (lieut, captain)

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

Coherency rules for 6+ units is a very good idea, it's simple but increase the depth of the game. Learning how to manage to be 2" from 2 models is going to be interesting for assault units ^^

Blast Weapons

warhammer rumour

warhammer rumour

Look out Sir !

They changed to rule to reduce some exploit concerning character targeting. The days of the Smash captain unable to being targeted are Over ^^

Multi Charge
