    3000 points was the plan months ago when GW needed to know the details in time to get it published in White Dwarf. The current plan is 2500 points.

    Sorry, that was incomplete. 2500 points main force and 500 point auxialliary add on. So a total of 3000 points for your army.

    The scenarios are still being worked out. You're going to want to build an all around balanced army at 2500 points and a balanced add on that would make it 3000 points.
    We are working on making extra scenarios but only 3 of them will end getting used.
    Here's what I can disclose:
    Scenario A) 2500 army, fairly basic mission, using kill points AND/OR objectives, the 500 point auxillary isn't used, 2.5 hour playing time
    Scenario B) 500 point aux., using objectives and MAYBE some special other win conditions, 2500 point army isn't used, 1 hour playing time
    Scenario C) 2500 point army, using kill points AND/OR objectives, 500 point aux. in reserve until turn 3, Aux. are spies and under your opponent's control, 3 hour playing time
    Scenario D) 500 point aux. plus some specific unit types (Troops or HQ or Elites etc...)from your main force are used, using objectives and MAYBE some special other win conditions, not all of your main force would be used, 2 hour playing time
    Scenario E) 2500 point army plus Aux., fairly basic mission, using kill points AND/OR objectives, 3 hour playing time

    The 3 games played will be determined randomly on the day of the event. Due to time constraints, both of the 3 hour games won't be used unless 1 hour game also comes up.

    so does the 500 pt force have its own seperate force org or is it 1 force org total for whole 3000?

    The entire 3000 points has to fit into 1 force organization.

    Any updates or specific scenarios?

    No, the exact scenarios will be given to all players at the same time at the event.

    Sounds good! Thanks, I like the idea of secrecy for missions. Trying to figure out what to think of D on your list though. An unusual scenario from the looks of it. See you Saturday.
