Re: 2014 questions

I like the time bidding too- so much drama and anticipation before the game has even begun!

Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

@ Kernbanks - No Titans this year, or superheavies of almost any sort. Few D weapons because you don't roll many dice with them. I like rolling lots of dice, and Apocalypticon is the place that allows for as much of this as possible.* Few superheavies because I want a much, much smaller army this ye...

Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

One person will be bringing drastically fewer D weapons in 2014 (me). Perhaps just the 3 on my Thunderhawks. @Knightfall02 - D weapons now favour your carnifexes more than they have in the Apocalypticons to date. Until now a destroyer weapon insta-killed anything 'Nid that it touched. 1 pie plate an...

Re: Another Apocalypticon is complete

@ Masticatordeelux -

Bob the Emperor is in an oil bath right now; had to upsize the one on Tatooine for him to fit. He'll recover.. one day.. from that final blow of ultra strong laser light.

Re: Another Apocalypticon is complete

Next year someone with a lot more skill than I could ever muster, will bring any titan of mine that comes, to the level of eye candy prevalent on Randy's tables. I think Kymmerus' idea I'll employ. Take pic's of the non-conformative constructs, put them on a sheet and attach a readout of what armame...

Re: PreGame

@ Crashcanuck - It's a good idea, as was the post-it note idea put forth earlier. If MWG decided that everything is randomised as per normal 40k, then that's likely what I and other players in my situation will do. @ whomever Such note taking won't alleviate the problem of time. A bloodthirster bloo...

Re: PreGame

I can see why a force with maxed out special weapons, all re-rolling hits, would be of concern to many. Personally, I don't care if I faced such a force. Multi D weapon behemoths are a far greater threat to what I can bring to the table, and in an event like Apocalypticon I don't even begrudge that....

Re: PreGame

I agree with Xtroopers9 A free for all - take whatever spells you want, is not necessary for the sake of simplicity and speeding up the game. Only choosing spells a given wizard would have access to is better IMO. On the creatures of the warp though: Daemons don't have access to super heavy vehicles...

Re: PreGame

My bad on not being specific in my request. When I asked MWG that we get to choose our psychic powers/ daemonic abilites/ etc., it wasn't a free for all choosing bonanza. Psykers with access to Div' can choose Div' powers. Psykers with access only to Nurgle (e.g. Typhus) would only choose Nurgle pow...

Re: PreGame

I thought Matt had mentioned the possibility of choosing psychic powers, daemonic abilities, etc. for Apocalypticon. I sure hope this will be the case, so I can give all the GD's and so on the same abilities, psykers the same spells, etc. Instead of literally having 50-60 different combinations to m...

Re: What armies will be coming?

I imagine with the number of points I'm bringing, I'll have more than 1 table to deploy on.

Also, a lot of the models are in transports and/or IA fortifications. I just like the sound of '700+ models!'

@ Randolph - With 700+ models I hope, reeeeeally hope, that a lot of my stuff is destroyed Friday evening. Else, Saturday afternoon is going to be extra fun..
