It's that time of year again!

 

Charlo and I will be participating in an Apocalypse game that my group hosts annually. These tend to be pretty epic and this year it should be no exception! With this thread we intend to update it as the battle goes along. It's a full weekend of playing (schedule to follow) so stay tuned!

 

The particulars:

  • 14 x 6 board
  • 2300 PL per side
  • Mission: Night March (CA, page 16)
  • Team 1: Blood Angels (Jolemai); Blood Angels, Ad Mech, Adeptus Custodes (Charlo); Chaos Space Marines; Daemons
  • Team 2: Raven Guard; Imperial Knights (GawFang); Imperial Knights (One_happy_hippy); Astra Millitarum,Titan Legions, Imperial Navy

House Rules:

  • Open Play rules however:
  • Armies have to be battleforged. This means individual Command Points pools and Stratagems are in play
  • The Warmaster has a team pool of 12 CP to spend however he wishes (within the rules). This pool will be lost once the Warmaster dies...
  • Special Characters are limited to one per battle
  • Armies to be strict WYSIWYG and painted (three base colours and based minimum)
  • Player can't buff each other's armies

*** *** ***

 

As you can see, we struggled to get an ideal balance. We've elected to go for a player and PL match at the expense of the fluff. We've also got a David Vs Goliath game on our hands but this should be fun all the same.

 

My army clocks in at 642 PL (just over 11K points) and is the third largest in attendance. It looks a little something like this:

More to come...

ALERT - A full maniple of Legio Astorum has gone rogue. In its treachery it has swayed Knight Houses, a fleet of Aeronautica, a Regiment of Sacred Cadia and hat appears to be... By the Emperor, a company of the venerable Raven Guard Adeptus Astartes.

The Blood Angels are on route but they will need support. Heresy such as this demands the highest response;

Send the Captain-General.
Belisarius Cawl shall recover the God Machines for the Imperium.
We've also heard that the Sanguine Vision chapter are en route, lead by a Mysterious Avatar of the Angel himself.

These traitors actions Will. Not. Stand.

=======

625PL / 11,000 points of Blood Angels, Adeptus Mechanicus & Adeptus Custodes, ready to battle the god machines.

It only took about four hours to pack it all... Mostly because I was sorting out all the new foam for the case to fit everything.

I'm jealous of the Caestus Assault Ram. :D


I love it too, but sadly the Caestus and Stormraven have been waylaid in orbit and shall not be making it to the battlefield. Casualties to orbital defenses*







*...Ran out of room and couldn't pack them safely.

It looks sparse but we need space for the titans and the flyers...

We've also decided to do a 12x6 instead as there's less chance of knocking stuff over...
