Description

OPEN WAR SCENARIOSTo prepare a Open War Scenario, generate one each of the following, using the provided tables: Open War Deployment, Open War Objectives, and Open War Twist. THE ARMES In order to play a scenario, you must first muster an army from the miniatures in your collection. You can include any models in your army. THE BATTLEFIELD Create the battlefield and set up terrain. DEPLOYMENT Both players roll a dice, rolling again in the case of a tie. The player that rolls highest can choose whether they will be Player A or Player B as explained by the Open War Deployment that was generated. The players then alternate setting up units, one at a time, starting with the player that won the earlier roll-off. Models must be set up wholly withing their own deployment zone, more than 3” from any enemy models. If a player's deployment zone is split up into several separate regions, units can be set up in some or all of them, as long as all of the models in a unit are set up in the same region. OBJECTIVE MARKERS Sometimes the Open War Objectives generated will require the player to set up one or more objective markers on the battlefield. They are placed before any units are set up. Each objective marker needs to be represented by a suitable object, such as a coin or suitable terrain. When measuring distances involving objective markers, always measure to and from the center of the marker. If both players are required to set up objective markers, alternate setting them up, one at a time, starting with the player that won the earlier roll-off. Objectives are controlled by the player that has the most models within 3” of them at the end of any turn. One you gain control of an objective in an Open War mission, it remains under your control until the enemy is able to gain control of it. RUSES AND SUDDEN DEATHS After both players have finished setting up, each player must add up the Power Rating of all of the units in their army. Of one army has a total that is greater than the other, then the player with the lower total is allowed to generate a Open War Ruse from the following table. If one army has a total that is at least double the other, then the player with the lower total is allowed to generate an Open War Sudden Death from the following table as well. Open War Ruses and Sudden Deaths are kept secret until they are played. If a Sudden Death can be achieved, its victory conditions override those generated by the Open War Objectives for this game. FIRST TURN The player who finished setting up their army first can choose to take the first or second turn. If they decide to take the first turn, their opponent can roll a dice; on a roll of 6, they manage to seize the initiative, and they get first turn instead! VICTORY The player that achieves the victory conditions from the Open War Objectives generated for the battle wins a glorious victory. If a Sudden Death is activated during the battle, that player wins a major victory. If neither player achieves a victory condition, then the player whose army had the lower total Power Rating wins a minor victory. If both armies had the same total Power Rating, the battle is a draw.

At the the of the fifth battle round, the player that controls the most objective markers wins the battlefield. A player wins immediately if they control all three objective markers at the end of their turn. 1-3.2 – Take and Hold: Place one objective marker at the center of the battlefield. Each of the players then sets up one objective marker in their deployment zone, more than 12” from any battlefield edge. At the end of a player's turn, they score 1 victory point for each objective marker they control. If the objective was also controlled by the player at the end of their last turn, they score 3 victory points instead. The player with the most victory points at the end of the fifth battle round is the winner. 1-3.3 – Drawn and Quartered: The players roll off; starting with the winner, they then take it in turns to set up two objective markers each, anywhere more than 12” from the center of the battlefield, more than 6” from any battlefield edge, and more than 18” from any other objective markers. At the end of their turn, a player scores 1 victory point for every objective marker they control. The player with the most victory points at the end of the fifth battle round is the winner. 1-3.4 –The Prize: Place an objective marker at the center of the battlefield. A model can pick it up by ending a move on top of it. The marker moves with that model from then on. The model can drop the marker at any time, and must drop it if slain.

The player whose model is carrying the marker at the end of the fifth battle round wins the battle. 1-3.5 – Glory Seeker: Each player adds up the Power Rating of all enemy units that are destroyed during the battle, doubling the Power rating of any units that have the Character, Vehicle, or Monster keyword. At the end of the fifth battle round, the player with the highest total wins the battle (even if their own army has been wiped out!). 1-3.6 – Supply Cache: The players take it in turns to place six objective markers. Each must be placed more than 6” from any objective markers and any battlefield edge. At the start of each player's turn, they must roll a dice for each marker they control, in any order they wish.

The player that controls the supply cache at the end of the fifth battle round wins the battle. 4-6.1 – Burn and Pillage: The players roll off; starting with the winner, they then take it in turns to set up three objective markers each, anywhere in their own deployment zone that is more than 6” from any other objective marker and any battlefield edge. A player can burn and pillage any enemy objective markers that they control at the end of their turn – remove them when they do so. The first player to burn and pillage all three enemy objective markers wins the battle. 4-6.2 – Invasion: The players roll off; starting with the winner, they then take it in turns to set up one objective marker each, anywhere in their own deployment zone that is more than 6” from any battlefield edge. A player wins immediately if they control both objective markers at the end of their opponent's turn. 4-6.3 – War of Attrition: Each player adds up the Power Ratings of all enemy units that are destroyed during the battle.

The winner divides the table in four equal quarters, and assigns a unique number from 1-4 to each quarter. The winner then rolls a dice and places an objective marker as close as possible to the center of the table quarter with the number that matches the result rolled. If the dice resulted in a 5 or a 6, instead place the objective marker as close to the center of the battlefield as possible. The player than controls the objective marker at the end of the fifth battle round wins the battle. 4-6.6 – Kill the Courier: At the start of the first battle round, before determining who has the first turn, each player lets their opponent know which model in their army is their courier.

No contingent can have more than half the units in an army. Each player sets up one contingent at the start of the battle using the normal rules for deployment. A second contingent arrives at the end of its controller's second movement phase, and the last at the end of its controller's third Movement phase. Units in the second and third contingent must be set up more than 9” from any enemy, with all models wholly within 9” of any edge of the battlefield and outside of the enemy deployment zone. 4-6.2 – Battle Frenzy: Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of all models in this battle. 4-6.3 – Restoratives: Each player may pick a friendly model at the start of their turn.
