5th Knights Assault Regiment :: 11th Tactical Air Wing In 2019, Todd Farnholtz aka Mastergunz announced that he was going to organize and run a non-traditional tournament based on the WarMaster tournament described in the CAV:SO rulebook. I can't recall the exact rules but it was something like 6 models max, aircraft and upgrades allowed. I thought about this list a lot during that summer and came up with the idea of playing an all aircraft list. An all aircraft list had several advantages as it was immediately immune to all Indirect Fire weapons (Rockets) and anything with the SA: Strike (MACs). This cut out a sizeable chunk of the weapons you might see on the battlefield. Additionally, the Aircraft were relatively cheap and I was able to afford upgrades for my entire Air Wing. I chose external armor and picked the type that worked against non-energy weapons. This made me more vulnerable to energy weapons but I guessed that the trade off was worth the risk. I was also able to afford upgraded pilots for all of my models. In practice, I found that the aircraft had an 8-12 inch sweet spot where they out-ranged most of the weapons they were vulnerable to. I practiced the list several times that summer against my play test partner and bounced the idea off of my friend Ross Hines - who couldn't play in the WarMaster tournament. Otherwise, I kept the list very secret as surprise was perhaps my biggest advantage. I won the WarMaster tournament... As for the unit, CavBoss already had the 5th Knights Assault Regiment and he made my unit part of it as the 11th Tactical Air Wing. All of the details on the models are hand painted by me and dedicated to my wife. She loves Dragons and her birthday is 5/11.
A few what ifs that have "popped" up recently... Q. Does a model with MV 9 get the benefit of Double-Time if they are moving on road/paved terrain and receive a +1 to their current move? A. No. If you do not have a natural MV of 10 or better then no double-time. This applies to Run 'N Gun as well. Q. An aircraft "drifting" with Improved Handling, does this count as an NoE move? A. No. An aircraft flying NoE precludes the use of the SA: Improved Handling. Q. If an aircraft declares NoE for the 1st action but then no action for the 2nd, is the aircraft NoE for the 1st action and then no NoE or no NoE at all? A. The aircraft would remain NoE until it does something that kicks it out. So it would be NoE during the 1st action and then out of NoE after declaring for the 2nd. CAVBOSS
