Re: GOOD NEWS for APOCALYPTICON for 2014 !

I'm down, and can swing either side... But I'm moving this summer and starting a new job so a lot of if's and but's right now.

Where is the new forum?

Re: How do I get started with Battlefleet Gothic?

I will have to check my bookshelf, but I believe the expansion "Warp Storm" has a set of alternative rules to combine the two. Or it was in one of the BFG magazines

Re: Apocalypticon Has Been Cancelled

Very sad indeed... anyone think they will take up the mantle of responsibility?

Re: Changes for 2014.

I like the idea of fast fliers but having been on two (+2 adj) boards with 4 opponents i could only imagine the pain if someone spread out any more.

Re: 2014 questions

I was thinking and speaking in general... I am excited to see the new fortications in the new Stronghold Assault. Combinations of vengance batteries, firestorm redoubts, aquilla strong points, and trenchlines... oh it will be great.

Re: 2014 questions

Sounds like they are considering fortifications... I would guess that means all. Which will be interesting as those massive fortifications have AV15. That would be far tougher than a planetary defense laser at AV14. And with the bunker troops can shelter inside and sally forth when coming in from re...

Apoc scale painting services

School is kicking my butt time wise and I have minis filling shelves with nothing but a primer... does anyone know someone who can do Apoc scale batch painting for a reasonable price point? As a starter... about 200 Valhallan Imperial Guardsmen.

Re: 2014 questions

Happy to hear such news, especially with the holiday fortification bundles out... Looking at the firestorm redoubt... Nice model... also picked up an aquilla cannon, and some of those battle cannon turrets, and a fortress of redemption :) :) :) but the big bonus is the new december book... supposed...

Re: Changes for 2014.

Honestly, we've done just fine without strategems in the past. I'd just as soon not have to deal with them this year, either. Yes, some formations grant them and all that but time is already finite without having to travel around the snake of a table to place your models. (Unless we can stay longer...

Re: Changes for 2014.

I'm still on the fence with formation stratagems... for instance I will have 2 battle companies of space marines, that's two orbital bombardments. For me that's small potatoes as a dozen Titans bring far more firepower to the table but for areas of the board without such Titanic forces the differenc...

Re: 2014 questions

Can't speek for everyone but less than 1/3 of my force could fit on my alloted table space. Loosing half of it, even all of it would only make more room for reinforcements. And this year 2 companies of green wing in drop pods for any Grey Knight warp quaking shenanigans. And my christmas break will ...

Re: 2014 questions

Get the cards, deal them out... make copies so you can have plenty of each set aside for each mutant... i mean psyker. I am looking to stream line my list as much as possible for faster game play. All the libis will be in a choir, and i think the commissars will get to the IG psykers before the batt...
