  1. Hi Peter, I'm planning on attending some of the Long War events - was just curious if the Forge World exclusions mean none at all, or a limit of 1 per list.

    I imagine all of this will be covered in the player's packs, but wanted to start planning my army early!

    Thank you kindly

    1. Hi,

      For The Long War events this year we used ITC but next year want to try the ETC format. On that basis we'll use whatever the ETC rules pack says>

      Currently they don't allow Forgeworld and I suspect that's unlikely to change. On that basis - and for these events - I 'd plan on the basis of no FW.

      The other FOB events plus the events run by Hagen Kerr here in Wellington do allow at least one FW unit.

      Hope that helps.
