  • Most rules related to movement speed have been amended accordingly
  • Fire Breath was re-named to Breath Attack
  • Clarified stacking effects in the Basic/Full Rulebooks
  • Clarified the Covering Fire rule in the Full Rulebooks for GFF and AoFS
  • Clarified the Overwatch rule’s duration in all Full Rulebooks

Competitive Rules

  • Rule of 3 now scales with game size
  • Raised recommended game size to 300pts for GFF/AoFS
  • Only heroes with up to Tough(6) can now join units
  • Units that Ambush on the last round can’t seize/contest objectives
  • Clarified that Deadly wounds are resolved first
  • Tough(3) models now take up 3 transport slots each
