Sneak Peek 2
-Jan. 27th, 2002-
I was looking at Wizards online store and I found a picture of the new rule book "Blood and Darkness". I thought I would post it so you can all take a look at it before it comes out this week.
-Jan. 25th, 2002-
I checked out the Chainmail Message Board today and this is what I found.
I just wanted to give you a heads up on some rules that will be updated in Season 3.
The reason I'm sharing this with you now is that we wouldn't mind if you implemented
these rules in your Season 2 Leagues.
"This season, all warbands must follow the faction rules, and players must declare their factions on their scoresheets.
Each player's warband must remain consistent with the appropriate faction's rules.
A player's warband may now change during the season.
This season a player may change their faction but must then lose 5 league points.
If a player changes their faction they must write "changed faction" in the
"opponent's name" space and then minus 5 points to calculate their current score.
"Models are legal for use in the Chainmail League as soon as the guidebook
that explains their new abilities is released."
There you have it.
The "New Releases" rule means that all Set 2 models will be legal as soon as Blood & Darkness is in your hands.
Hopefully these new rules will make League even better to play in.
New Program Development Manager
Wizards of the Coast
So what does this mean?
It means that you cah use Set 2 figures in season 2 league with these 3 exceptions
•1.) You can use them as soon as Blood and Darkness comes out on Jan. 29th, 2002
•2.) You may not change you warband in the middle of a game.
Only before a game with a player, or after the game is over.
•3.) You may only change your warband ONCE in this season.
Hopefully this will please everyone. If not send me an e-mail.
