Oh yes...Anrakyr...is on my list of models to take out quickly. The one big problem is that he has to get within 18" of my titans and that will be a good challenge for you. I'm planning on keeping a 2' buffer between my titans and enemy models...mostly by blasting everything to oblivion that comes into that 2 foot space. I'll also be targeting the traveler as soon as I see him on the board. Please keep all of your high points and important units near him so that I can practice my aim. :D

P.S. this also goes for the doom of Malan'tai

@ Randy - No, no my friend. I'm bringing the pain with Chaos Space Marines, Daemons and Tau. Though should you be lucky enough, you'll see Anrakyr in the hands of a friend of mine- the same one I built the gargants for!

Should I bear the distinct honour of facing off against the Titan Legion this year, you'll witness my schemes.. .. .

There's lots of Chaos lovin' to go around

The thought of having to face down the shiny forces of the false corpse god's inquisition leaves me unable to sleep.. .. I can't decide if I will assault them off the board, nuke them off the board, drown them in zombies... Such decisions I now face!

Quick question. Since the ruling has been made regarding no fortifications (which, I assume translate over to the Aquila Strongpoint, though it has a datasheet in the new book, but is still classified as a fortification), are we still allowing the Defense Lasers from last edition?

I am curious, as that model would make a wonderful looking defense laser (and I want it), but do not want to make a faux pas in using it as a laser, if not allowed, or if the Aquila Strongpoint can be used as is.

!! I pray we are allowing the Defence Lasers from 5th! I have enough of them in my Apocalypticon army.

For clarification, does this include the new building/fortification datasheets and stronghold formations in the new apoc book?

Yes you can bring Defense Lasers. No, you cannot bring any other fortifications.

Another quick question regarding the basing for the models. Is the textured paints that GW sell alright for the fully based, or must it be flocked/sand?

After seeing it painted and drybrushed, it looked, in my opinion, better than if it were covered in flock and sand.

I think this just became my favourite ruling of the game... It will save me so much time.

If I bring Abbadon's Black Legion formation can I use his Planet Killer - Master of Disaster Ability?

Bah!!! I was only going to remove 10-15 tables from the game!






Kidding aside, Abbadon rolls on the Magma?? Table not the Seismic one so all he does is either hit three units with s7 ap3 hit, three units with s10 ap2 hit, or cause overheats. And he has to roll on that table once per turn to get those.
