If a transport has a capacity of 20, does that mean you can put 2 units of 10 men inside it? How would they disembark?

I believe the vehicle will say specifically if it can take hold multiple units. I think by default though transports are 1 unit to 1 transport.

Current rough plan on army composition is:

- Default of up to 3000 points per player, but up to 4000 provided you're including at least 500 points in superheavies/gargantuans.
- Titan-class superheavies and gargantuans (above 9 HP/wounds) must be declared in advance and will be subject to special balancing; let us know ASAP if you want to bring any.

Models must be at least base coated---no bare plastic or black/white/grey primer. It's been really good the past couple years having mostly painted models on the table. For the couple holdouts that don't play 40k much at the moment but want to play and have a lot of unpainted models, get in touch. We can do something like quickly airbrushing them to at least block out the basic colors.

Rules for superheavy transports in 7th ed allow a superheavy to carry any number of units up to its transport capacity. I did not find anything about disembarking from superheavies that is different from regular vehicles. I once heard a battle report citing a one-unit-per-access-point disembarking rule for superheavies, but could not verify that.

Joe forgot one other army construction rule:

"Your army must be constructed in such a way that if Lovell is on the opposing team, you have the ability to focus all of your efforts on crushing him on the first turn! Please note that this will not work, and although it will ensure his immediate wrath and anger, we hope over a 5-10 year period to demoralize him to negate some of his in-born tactical advantage of superior strategic intellect. Also note, this applies REGARDLESS of which army he brings. Organizers will make every effort to try to get him to focus to allow predictability, however these efforts have not been successful as of yet due to his severe gaming ADHD and his refusal to take his meds."

I'm searching through old post to find the one where this rule was originally presented and will copy it when I find it

In other news: Colin is trying to get me to stray from the Emperors light and play with foul heresies.

So if I played Dark Eldar (not that I have enough to make a good force right now), would I be on order or chaos since DE hate both?

Both you and the Kingbreakers are practically heretics anyway.

DE would most likely play on the Discord team for balancing purposes.
40K: Chaos Marines/Demons (15,000+ pts), Catachans, Angels of Death, Orks & Crons
KoW: Abyssal Dwarves, Goblins, Ogres & Dwarves
Infinity: Caledonians
WM: Menoth
Dust: Axis & SSU
FoW: Ger. Grenadiers & Armoured Sqdrn.
BB: Undead
