    Escalation Help

    Hi,

    I'm a bit of a 40k noob and my friend and i about to have a battle that uses the escalation special rule. In the rule book it states only basic infantry may deploy exluding jump infantry, troops with transport, artillery and beasts etc.

    Therefore does this mean only troop choices deploy, HQ, fast attack, elites and heavy support start in reserve.

    In our example I'm 'nids so can I deploy everything except my carnifex or can i just deploy 'stealers and gaunts?

    Thank you in advance.

    Rich :wacko:

    I found the answer in the back of the rule book where it lists unit types cheers.

    I can't see why he wouldn't. He's not jump infantry, a vehicle, an MC, or a beast. He moves and assaults 6".

    That's what i was thinking, my firend disagreed. I think he was just annoyed that i could field more than him at the beginning.

    Try playing against Tau in escalation to understand what irritating is - all their battlesuits deploy as troops...
