In comparison to vanilla 40k, Apocalypse has always been the same thing but with a few houserules occasionally and more emphasis on super-units, right? To be honest, I've never played it, nor do I have enough of one army to run an Apoc game (about 2k per army in my collection, and only two major armies), and my local meta tends toward the smaller scale, usually around 1k, but up to 3.5k. Do you think the new expansion will have similar systems to common Apoc houserules, or will it be more of a unique game? I'm expecting it to be similar to Kill Team in that it's going to have the same basic ruleset as 40k with major tweaks that make it more complicated.
On a related note, is anyone else looking to pick up one of the new Apoc box sets for proper standard 40k as well?
