Hey everyone, we’re working on the new BAO format and we wanted some feedback from any of you out there willing to playtest it.
Here’s how it works.
You play 2 book missions at a time, the pairs are: Emperors Will and Crusade (3 objectives), Scouring and Purge the Alien, and Big Guns Never Tire (4 Objectives) with the Relic. In each mission, one victory condition is worth 4pts, the other 3. In the BAO, You play each mission combination twice, once with one of the missions as 4, the other 3, so when you playtest it, you can choose which is worth more points, or dice it.
We use all 3 book deployments, you can roll for it randomly.
We also use all there book bonus points. So, in each.mission there are 10 possible points. The player with more points, wins. Same points is a tie.
We use mysterious objectives, but not terrain.
Psychic powers and fortifications as normal. Warlord traits either per ths specific codex or roll one and choose any power with that number in the brb.
Everything else is right out of the book! Let us know if you find any loopholes, etc. and give us feedback on the mission combinations, etc.
Thanks for your help, looking forward to another great BAO!
