ORKPOCAPLYPSE

Postby Talorian » Friday 27th June, 2014 9:05 am

I'm thinking about arranging an Apocalypse game Orksies Vs Chaos. This is literally Orks Vs Chaos Marines and Daemons, I'm not accepting traitor Guard as an option.

Anyone wanting to play? Details of what side you'd be on and a rough indication of how many points you can field.

I'm planning on making this a little bit more balanced that previous attempts at Apocalypse games, so we will be going with Battle Forged lists supported by Lords of War choices, but using the Apocalypse rules for game play. I don't want to play against 10,000 points of Greater Daemons and Daemons princes that are all flying and then summong lots of Daemons onto the board.

Actually the least balanced apocalypse games have been those including crazy daemon summoning strategic assets... (well played Tom to be fair ;) )

It was "fun" the first time but we need to balance things like assets, D weapons per side etc... Shouldn't be too hard as long as we agree before hand.

Also I don't think we should use the "out of the box" Apocalypse rules as they are an edition behind now. I think a modified big 40K with a set of allowed assets and battleforged lists would be better...

Count me in. Although I'd prefer it to happen in about a month so I can get some stuff built/painted. I've suggested the idea to some people. Both Chris and scanham seemed interested.

Would it not be worth pushing the date back a couple of weeks? Mainly so the ork players can have a few normal games with their new rules first.

Worked it out but I could possibly bring between 3 and 5000 of iron warriors

I don't know when I'm returning to sheffield, and I'm leaving in less than a week, so I probably won't be able to attend ( yet again).

I am disappointed the you didn't go for 'ApORKalypse' though :P

I have this Saturday off. I may well come, as it's been far too long and I've actually bought the new rulebook!

How many points of irks can you get together between you?
Currently lots of interest from chaos but not sure how many players we can fit in.

I can fields somewhere in the region of 11000 points of Orks. Though that would include 5 lords of war. It would probably be a legal army though as I have lots of boyz and grots to make up my troops choices :) even so I was thinking no more than 10000 points aside.

Note the 19th is not the date anymore. It'll be in August, if we can find a suitable venue.
