    I thought any units in reserve after 3rd turn are counted toward casualties?

      In all the rules that have been revealed you can bring units on when you want, it seems cult ambush is the same but where they can come on from and what they can do when they arrive is determined by a d6, so bring everything on by turn 3 😛

    I know chaos has R&H but I am kinda jealous that we can’t convert AM too. A pretty cool rule that one.

    Finally Rockgrinders are scary. The initiative test to avoid damage just doesn’t work in 7th. Can’t wait to mulch the enemies of the four armed emperor.

      It’s very satisfying to run things over with rock grinders 🙂

    So does this article suggest that some sort of Allies Table still exists?

      There are allies but it is dramatically different than now. Big change there, and GSC are the exception.

    Hrrrm….no mention of returning to the shadows. Is it still a thing in 8E?

      After turn 3 all reserves die, so you may not want them to run back into reserves.

        This is the first I’ve heard of a turn 3 reserve limitation. Has that rule been released somewhere?

      • Hiveminded May 29, 2017 12:26 am

        The tactical reserves info released by GW says that all units that have not arrived on the battlefield by the end of turn 3 are destroyed (in matched play).

        You could easily argue that a unit that was on the board turn three and left the board had arrived before turn 3.

        Of course, if RttS is gone, the discussion is moot. Soooo….do we know that RttS is not in the new rules?
