This is the most current rulesset for apocalypse. If a book does come out I would suggest using it as these are a bit confusing and I bet the vast majority of people who come will have never heard of/read these rules.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/ ... update.pdf

The strongest explosion he was referring to is now S10 within 6 inches. None of this 10d6 S D shenanigans. Houseruling it to be something different would be neat though.

At least Superheavies and gargantuans can only overwatch against one another. That would have been a tad bit insane.

Is there going to be a limit for fortifications?

Thanks! We will definitely use the rules from that PDF.

And no fortifications are allowed except for those in Imperial Armour books.

We don't use shenanigans!! We use big templates and big guns!!

Sadly the best I could do with my Emperor titan was 8d6 Strength D explosion. I don't think there is a 10d6 explosion distance in any of the rules. But maybe this could be added to the House Rules? :lol:

...but what an explosion it was!! 32" in all directions from the base of the titan! I watched a huge space open in front of my lines all of the way to the center of the table last year. It was easy to land deep strikers after that!

The new rules make the explosion, of a much loved and laboured over Titan model, anticlimactic!! kind of like adding the word Bang to the rifle barrel of the Vindicare assassin sprue Image

The rules on a titan's explosion overrides the base rules.

Oh those explosions. I thought you meant blasts.

We will probably use the same rules as last year, because we want to see those titans go apocalyptic!

I'll probably have to modify them though.

Obviously, but we played with highly modified explosion rules last game. My 10D6 S D shenanigans comment was just an embellishment on my part :P. Gotta get this to explode this game!: http://www.oocities.org/shinjukumouichi ... device.pdf

Excellent to hear we'll be using the bigger, badder explosions from last year (even if modified)! They were great fun

I've heard rumors of new Apoc rules and updates coming out this summer.

So in regards to rules, is there a cutoff date for what can be used? If say a new Apoc rules set comes out before Apocalypticon will you use it? What about new formations, or more 6th Edition friendly rewrites of existing model / formation rules?

We will most likely not use those rules, just as last year we didn't use the 6th edition rules as they were released too close (within a month or two).

Easier to do it this way:

Thanks for all those who sent me a message regarding the tickets. I was able to connect long enough on vacation to both see and purchase. So, rest assured there will be the usual inquisitorial presence this year, hopefully complete with Basillica for the sisters.

Looking forward to this.

Was just wondering if we would be given time (due to 6th) before the first turn starts to generate/roll for psychic powers, daemonic rewards and the like? I know I'm going to have quite a few of them and it will take a few minutes to roll/write down every one of them.

Just something to think of.

Hmmm... I hadn't thought of that.

There will definitely be time. In fact, with it being an Apocalypse game, perhaps we could even just let you choose which powers you get...

That would definitely streamline things quite a bit. I'm looking at 30-40 random psychic powers rolls and 30-40 lesser, greater, and exalted daemonic reward rolls.
