To all that participate in the Battle Records here on D.net, I think this may interest you. I'm trying to get more interest into the "League" and have decided to spice up the rules perhaps.

I will only be doing this if there is interest in the participants. Basically I want to give bonus points to those who are willing to play with restrictions on their lists perhaps in 1 month 'seasons' where any battle played using a list applying to those special restrictions on list composition gain bonus points for winning with that list.

There will be no points modifications for losing or drawing in your games. This is basically to encourage Druchii players to try new styles of play or slight tactical changes to help improve their strategic planning.

If people interested in joining in this little experiment could post here or any objections to the idea would be welcome.

If enough interest is gathered I would like to start with an easy season.

Season 1 Limitations

No Banner of Hag Graef.
May only include 0-1 unit of Harpies and 0-1 unit of Dark Riders
No Hydra in this list.
Maximum of 2 Bolt Throwers.
Must include at least 5 core units in the army.
No Manticore or Black Dragon mount may be taken.


Fairly simple limitations and should not affect many peoples game play style but will allow people to get used to some restrictions.

Some seasons may require that some units MUST be taken and will promote the use of lists that are tooled to exploiting certain phases in the game.

Remember that you can continue to play your normal list as well and still receive points as per normal.

So is anyone interested in giving this little idea a go?

I like it... but then, I'd only need drop a unit of DR and I'm there.

Do harpies count toward the 5 core total?

Wouldn't a sliding scale be better as I mostly play under 2 K and 5 core is hard work at that points level.

Ok so it was an idea that does need tweaking. I'll work on it some more like balancing for lower point lists when I've gotten past this week. University assignments etc etc.

@Layne, Well this is supposed to be an easy one and I expected some people to be able to play this 1st one without major changes.

@Rabidnid, yes the Harpies and Dark Riders still count as core units otherwise it would be incredibly hard to field and army with 5 core + the harpies/DRs in a 2k-ish game.

With a quick change I can change the Limitations for the 1st Round.

Season 1 Limitations


No Banner of Hag Graef.
May only include 0-1 unit of Harpies and 0-1 unit of Dark Riders
No Hydra in this list.
Maximum of 2 Bolt Throwers.
Must include at least +2 more core units than the minimum allowed for your lists points total. (e.g: @ 2000pts 5 core must be taken, @ 1500pts 4 core...)
No Manticore or Black Dragon mount may be taken.



Thats about as easy as I can scale it Rabidnid, that should make it easier for your list while still keeping with the majority core selection.
