To clarify a bit what Spencer said:

If you only benefit from a single "chapter tactic" equivalent rule in your army, you will gain the bonus 3CP. If you have units that don't benefit from tactics but don't break them, like Servitors, Tempestus Scions or Grots, then those units will not cause you to lose the extra CP. likewise if you include allies but don't take the benefit of a tactic (say a small contingent of Sisters of Battle along with your marines) then if only your Marines have a chapter tactic, then you would still get the bonus.

The stratagems are designed to be a much smaller bonus than the CP. I included the extra CPs because there will almost always be 1 or more unique stratagems available to you with the mission. The campaign progresses in a branching pattern, with each mission themed around one or more factions in game (the first mission is an "Orks versus Guard" themed scenario). If you have an army composed of the faction represented in the mission, you will get a special stratagem for that mission.

For example, if the Tau mission is played, a Tau fleet attacks the planet, bombarding it with weapons designed to harm enemy combatants and keep allied casualties to an acceptable minimum according to the Greater Good. If you are playing a Tau army for that mission, you can communicate directly with the fleet and make their carpet bombing a little bit more precise.

The special Tau stratagem is "Fleet Arrays on My Target!" 2CP, used at the end of the shooting phase, one enemy unit with 4 or more markerlight counters on it takes D6 mortal wounds.

Sounds like fun.

Aaaand reply edited now that I saw the no LoW restriction in the packet lol

Also Edit: how do the rules interact with Specialist Detachments?
Specialist detachments can be used as you like, the rules don't interact or restrict them at all. If you took a <Graia> specialist detachment and a <Graia> regular detachment, you'd get the 3CP and you'd get the bonus Admech stratagem if we play the Admech vs Necrons mission. if you took a <Catachan> detachment and a <not aligned> admech detachment, you would get the 3CP but would not get the stratagem for either.

Sounds fun. I’d say I’m a 3+

Sounds fun. I plan on bringing my tau so i can be on whichever team needs the numbers.
Game Preferences:
Current Beta rules in effect
I'm happy to play lower points levels with people who are staring out or building up new forces
Fair warning my doofy daemons have 3rd party models, scratch builds, old warhammer models and I haven't moved all their bases over to the 40k ones yet! Happy to switch to either Tau or White Scars.

Even if the dice roll is at 11? I can't imagine that it'll be hard to get home in time for the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl never starts early.

I would love to participate! Not sure on the list yet but probably pure Deathwatch or at least Deathwatch focused.
