Maelstrom IX Update... rules clarification for Death from the Skies and a sponsor announement

A quick update today!

Death from the Skies
Death from the Skies will be released by GW prior to the cutoff date outlined in the Players Pack. While it probably adds complexity, its use fits within the constraints of the players pack.

  • The onus is on those who what to bring flyers to purchase a copy of the rules (making sure they are available at any time during the game for reference), and explain how they work to their opponent prior to the game.
  • All other composition rules and restrictions from the Players Pack remain in effect (Allies, Formations/Detachments)
  • The Dogfight/Duel subphase rules will not be in play

I am pleased to announce that Mighty Ape are providing sponsorship for Maelstrom IX!

(See the updated Maelstrom IX announcement)

What the team at Mighty Ape have done is provide me with a copy of Imperial Knights: Renegade - how awesome is that.

To give anyone attending a chance to win this amazing box set, I am going to raffle it off at Maelstrom IX. All proceeds of the raffle will be donated to the Wellington City Mission. Tickets will be $2 each, with a maximum of 20 can be purchased per person.


  1. Nice work Hagen - looks like Ill need lots of spare cash for those raffle tickets. Are you running a bring and buy table at all?

    1. Hi John, yep there will be a bring and buy table!
