Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

However, remember the spirit of the game. We want to see things blow up, we want to see things roll off the table. I think what we should be looking at is placement. If you are running an infantry based army, going up against a horde of S10 AP2 or S:D templates is demoralizing. Yes, but the real re...

Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

@Aegis: It really comes down to 750 points, and 4 Str D 5" templates - the costing is just wrong, and makes it pretty much power cheese. Add in the new rules, and it's just plain overpowering at that tiny points level. It really should be +500 points for the 2nd turbo laser arm. I vaguely remember s...

No idea how many units are out there now, should probably include Defense Lasers in this list and limit to 1 per person max (with a 2 foot by 2 foot footprint).

Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

I would suggest a "Maximum of 1 turbo laser per super heavy smaller than a warlord" as well, the number of cheese-hounds that were on the tables the last few years was ridiculous.

Re: 6th Edition Apoc rules

I could easily agree to different flying distances between standard and super heavy flyiers. Same thing with the flying critters.

Let SH/Gargantuan flyers get 72" or even 120" range, they deserve it... though those Thunderhawks should be limited to 12" range due to their weight :)

Re: Another Apocalypticon is complete

i think its a ugly model personally, i love seeing the real ones on the table but its just so dam blocky, i really want a manta :( sucks being IG :P A Manta requires a small crane to be able to fly it around the table, it's just not something really usable... Believe me, I've tried to figure out ma...

Re: Another Apocalypticon is complete

I sadly neglected to both take photos and write down what was going on at my table. Suffice to say there was lots of titan, eldar, and tau fire ripping into my troops and vehicles, with healthy amounts of stuff blowing up on either side. I took a lot of superheavy explosions, but the field was leve...

Re: Your Apocalypticon Force

For what it's worth, I did mention we needed more reinforcement tables while we were setting up, the hotel just didn't have enough.

Re: Plans For 2014

As it is anyone who was near the 20k point mark or above had two table fronts (or needed them, xtrooper9) for 8' x 30" of deployment space (20sqft). With the row of I's here there are 12' x 3' + 4' x 2' (going out onto the bridge table) for a whopping 44sqft per "I". So jj3, if you play with your s...

Re: Plans For 2014

A couple more updates: We'd only need 4 I's plus a table to equal what we had this year for tables. The exta can easily be added as shown for the "city assault" table. Or an orbiting spaceship like we had this year, with lots of termies and stealers :) I'd also suggest limiting any turbo lasers to 1...

Re: Another Apocalypticon is complete

It was a good event, lots of templates, lots of destruction, and I needed a shovel to get things on and off fast enough :) My most memorable moment? Jae4x4 desperately trying to nick the last 2 hull points off my reaver and rolling a stream of 1's and 2's while I tried to hold off the mobs of people...

Re: Plans For 2014

Or should this be a discussion of ideas for next year's game and rules (we all have the new apoc books right)? This concept was discussed at the dinner table Saturday night, with these Ladder rungs side by side with (and I have an idea of how to get inside other than crawling) I'm not sure about ev...

Re: PreGame

as for army lists? what do we need to bring? Just data sheets? I have lists but at 30,000 points they are kinda long and unwieldy. I've divided up my army list into sublists, major formations have all their datasheets (if AB does't print out all the details), and attached the formation data sheet a...
