Special Rules

To play Missions (rather than last man standing) one or more players may include a V.I.P. and/or an ENGINEER in their team but no more than one of each type (hence their free cost).

The point cost of each Model is found in the top right-hand corner - Agree on a point total for a battle and choose your Models, then for each Model on the tabletop ensure a copy of that Model is in the Activation pile.

Activation cards are kept face down and are shuffled for random activation unless you still have your Commander (Only one Commander is allowed per army as with the other 0 cost Models) in which case you may order the cards to your preference but once the turn has begun, the cards may not be rearranged. If you flip over the top card of the Activation deck and no Model can be matched, this does not forfeit your initiative, instead flip your next card over until you do find a match. When both players have depleted their Activation decks, the current turn is over and a new turn begins by re-allocating orders and readying the Activation decks.

Order card(s) are placed face down under/beside each Model at the start of each turn which will determine how the Models may act.

A Model may pass without using (and revealing) it's second order. Each time a Model reveals an order it must be carried out fully before either passing initiative to the next player or revealing a second order for the same model and then passing initiative to the next player.
