-          Daemon summoning
o   You can only summon a daemon model that you have a physical model of. If there are none available, that unit cannot be summoned. Only very very suitable proxies allowed.
o   If you summon a bloodthirster, use the appropriate rules for the model that is present. Ie: if you only have a Wrath of Khorne model, then that’s the rules you use. This does not apply to Khorne Daemonkin summoning.
If there are any other conflicting rules that need to be addressed, please let us know beforehand so that we may know how to deal with it.
Remember, all Judges decisions are final.

Horus Heresy Battle Report! Imperial Fists VS Salamanders

The end of 2015 was big with the eagerly awaited arrival of the Betrayal at Calth box set, giving many marine players a great opportunity to either bolster their 40k armies or start a 30k one! What happens when you get two guys who go the 30k route, well the very first 30k battle of course. Kevin’s Salamanders vs Matt’s Imperial Fists.
