These are played as normal as stated in the 40k rulebook but with the following change: When drawing a card, if the card is impossible in the game (ie: Destroy a flyer, but the opponent have none in their list) then you may discard it immediately and continue to draw and discard cards until you draw a replacement that isn’t impossible. If the objective card was previously possible, but is now impossible (ie, destory a flyer, but all flyers in the opponents list have already been destroyed) then you can also discard and redraw in the same way. Note impossible does not apply to things like ; “My Imperial Guardsmen cant run that far in the two turns remaining.”
