Search and Destroy v1.1.0

Secondary (10pts) – Victory Points (see below)

Tertiary (5pts) – Bloody Foresight (see below)

Quaternary (+1pt) – For each of your troop choices at or above 50% starting strength.

Search and Destroy
There are to be D3+2 objectives placed using normal rules (pg. 121), and claiming them using normal rules (pg. 123), with an addition. Objectives are treated as AV14 and can be destroyed. If you get an explodes result then the objective is removed. There are no hull points and all other results are ignored. The objective is treated as an immobile vehicle unit with regards to assaulting.

Victory Points
Any unit destroyed is worth as many victory points (VPs), as it cost. This means that a unit that costs nothing, such as spawned units during the game, is not worth VP. Any unit falling back, or has fallen back off the table, at the end of the game counts as destroyed and is worth full VPs. Any units in ongoing reserves at the end of the game are counted as destroyed and worth full VP. Any units at or below half strength are worth half their cost in VPs (round all fractions up). Any units that are single models (IE: independent characters, monstrous creatures, etc), are worth half their value if they have lost half or more of their wounds. Vehicles are worth half value if they have lost half or more of their hull points and/or suffered an immobilized result.

Bloody Foresight
At the start of the game each player will write down in secret how many kill points they think they will get. At the end of the game show your opponent the amount you wrote down and the player closest to the value written down without going over wins this mission.

* All objectives are completely impassable. They cannot be moved upon by anything whatsoever, no exceptions.

** If a mission is tied or neither player achieve it, with the exception of the quaternary, then both players split the points for that mission rounding up. Also, If you table your opponent (destroy his/her entire army), then you may use the remaining turns, if there are any left, to achieve the missions. Tabling your opponent is not an automatic win, you still need to accomplish the missions.

I began playing Warhammer 40K in 2006, and have been an avid player and hobbyist since then. I have also been blogging about 40K for almost as long as I've been playing it, having started Creative Twilight in 2009.
