Rules v1.2.2


After a Squadron is intercepted, the two involved Squadrons engage in a Dogfight. The intercepting Squadron is placed in base to base with intercepted Squadron and the Dogfight commences.

  • Participating Squadrons will alternate choosing Dogfight Actions, beginning with the activating Squadron.
  • A model may chose actions from the table until it is out of fuel.
  • If a model survives a Dogfight without remaining Fuel, it enters the Return to Base state.
  • A model that survives a Dogfight with remaining fuel, it may:

Example: A Wyvern chooses to initiate a Dogfight with a damaged Pathfinder. It has a Mass Driver (AS:2) and a Beam Projector (AS:2). It can attack with both weapons and get a [N, D] doing one damage. The Pathfinder has a Beam Projector with AS:3 and chooses to attack, and gets a [D] doing one damage. The Wyvern then attacks again getting [D, D] doing two damage destroying the Pathfinder. The dogfight ends with the Wyvern out of Fuel, so it enters the Return to Base state.

Dogfight Actions

A requirement of X+ means that the Model must currently have at least a rating of X in the required rating. For example, a requirement of Fuel: 2+ means that a Squadron must currently have at least two fuel.

Certain Actions require a Skill Test to be used.
