ADLG Special rules;
1 400 points made up of 2 x 200 point armies. Each army must not be more than 210 points with a combined total of no more than 400 points.
2 The armies chosen must be listed as potential allies in either army list. All troop options used from both lists must be available within the time period 500—999AD.
3 Commands from each 200 point “army” may be intermingled at deployment. Each player must command the 3 adjacent commands in their half of the table.
4 The break point of the army is the combined total of both armies.
5 If flank marching or ambushing 1 command it is permitted to start with 2 commands for one player and 3 for the other and then transfer one command to maintain the 3 + 3 requirement once the flank march arrives or ambush is revealed, in order to disguise the flank of arrival. In the same principle, if only one flank march/ambush is being attempted, either player may roll for it.
6 Each player has a separate standard camp that must be deployed in their half of the table. The loss of each camp counts as per the standard 200 point rules.
7 Teams are expected to roll for and move 1 command each simultaneously in order to not unduly delay play and to resolve combats together as well where possible.
