The Craftworld Open At UCON: The Missions

As promised I have the missions for the upcoming “Craftworld Open” which will be taking place on October 28th at Ucon. Registration is still open and can be done at the conventions website I am keeping it simple. I have decided to go with missions from the man rule book. They are decent and are multi tiered in terms of ways to score victory points. So here we go.

Mission 1

Deployment: Dawn of War ( 12 inch deployment zone along the long table edge)
Mission: Purge The alien
1 VP is scored for each unit destroyed. Units in retreat or not on the board are counted as destroyed at the end of the game.

Slay the warlord, First Blood and Line breaker are in effect. Night fighting and reserves are also used.

Mission 2

Deployment: Classic table Quarters( table divided into quarters with a 12 inch diameter no mans land in the center)
Mission: The Relic

3 VP's are scored for possession of the Relic at the end of the game. Slay the Warlord, First Blood are in effect. Night fighting and reserves are also in effect.

Mission 3

Deployment: Hammer and Anvil
Mission: Big Guns Never tire

set up d3+2 objectives. Each held objective is worth 3 VP's at the end of the game. 1 VP is earned for each heavy support choice destroyed.

Heavy support units count as scoring units.

Night fight and reserves rules are in effect.

So there you have it. I will of course have a complete mission pack for the tournament. I like posting missions as this allows you to prepare your lists accordingly. If there are any rules questions feel free to contact me via the Craftworld Lansing blog email

Over at Craftworld Lansing in the coming days I will be going over the changes I made to the footdar list. I got in a game with CVinton and his 13th company space wolves. He ran a rather familiar list just to try it out. Grey Hunters, Blob Squads and Long Fangs oh my! The results of the game were surprising and gave me a big boost of hope for the Eldar in the months leading up to a new codex.

Until next time.................

Blood Runs, Anger Rises, Death Wakes War Calls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. We have some fellas interested in coming down from Mid-Michigan. How many people are registered so far?

  2. There is still plenty of room. I would suggest pre-registering to ensure that you have a spot in the event. If all the tickets are sold before pre-reg closes, we may possibly try to expand to allow more players to enter.

  3. Last I saw there were only 6 pre regs

  4. Can we use forgeworld models in the tournament?
