Super heavies/Gargantuans/Formations necessary?

Just one thing... I am registered, and I am just making sure, but we don't need to bring a super heavy/formation/gargantuan, do we?

Matt,

Are we still limited to 200 models this year?

I'm just thinking that if you are not bringing superheavies/gargantuans/formations then you will be bringing a lot of infantry models.


Are we sticking with the 200 model limit or has that gone up? The minimum points value is 3000pts and that means making up a list that has a large number of troops, many elites, transports, fast, heavies and some HQ (with all of their options enabled) to equal the 200 model limit.

Without the Superheavies/Gargantuans/formations you will be hard-pressed to stay below the 200 model limit.

And, for clarification, was the 200 model limit just for number of infantry models or all of your models combined?

I'm definitely not Complaining - I'm just getting dangerously close to that number and I'm trying to see where the limitations are.

The 200 model limit has been lifted, so bring whatever you want!

Just remember that each turn is only 45 minutes long.
