APOCALYPSE 30th NOVEMBER - IMPERIUM vs. ALLIANCE

Postby noodle » Monday 28th October, 2013 4:11 pm

So... Who wants to play a big apocalypse game?*

Suggested date 30th November (depending on people)

Suggested sides Imperium vs. The Alliance (Tau Eldar)

Sides will be 2000pts per person. This includes a 500pt "toys" allowance (super heavies etc) per person. So if there are 5 people on your side you could take 2500 pts of toys and 7500 armies. I don't plan to limit the points of an individual model, as this is apocalypse. However very large things (I'm looking at a Phantom titan here) may incur extra strategic items on the opposing side.

Points allocations do not have to be legal armies.

One person per side needs to sort out if any formations can be built out of their "side". This person will also be the person in charge of that faction.

Please post interest below. Points above subject to change depending on interest.

*This will wipe out our society space for anything else so I will look into whether we can book a room SPECIFICALLY for this game...

I'll play and I'll be on the Alliance side.

I have plenty of toys to wedge into the points values, so if folks don't want to spend their points on normal stuff and want to take some toys, for the alliance, then let me know and I'll see what we can sort out.

Keen to play Tau as first choice, but happy to play Imperium if the sides need balancing.

I'll also mention this to the new people who don't seem to have found the forum! I am anticipating 5-7 per side.

If its 7 per side I will be ref/GM/timekeeper instead. Ian and I will bring down some extra scenery so that we don't use up all the society terrain... IF we can get a room.

Could a trip to Warhammer World be the solution?

Table availability looks ok on the WW Calendar - they've got a Masterclass event on, which looks to be painting rather than a gaming event.

I'm willing to drive. Is there a collective willingness to go down to play? It would wholly avoid the issue of adversely impacting upon non-apocalypse gamers.

Warhammer World works for me, we need an enormous table though and I'm not sure they have one big enough for 10-14 thousand points a side, which actually has some terrain on it and isn't that crazy city one.

If it's the best option though, I will also drive.

If its that large then using 2 tables and having it as two separate games might be more manageable, both in terms of space and sanity of the participants.

Morkai and the Sons of Russ stand ready to hurl back the xenos from whence they came.

Or die horribly. Which is honestly more likely...

Can bring "The Thin Red Line" Praetorians (up to 2500-3000pts), a small Tau force (1500pts) or possibly some out-of-time Emperor's Children if they're built by then.

As i said me and helen would love to play we think we could pull together a force of about 4K eldar eldar corsairs and dark eldar and i can loan out tau to make up numbers for other forces

Right... Lets book 2 tables and plan for WW. People should plan to bring *up to* 3000pts if they can so I can balance on the day (when people inevitably appear or drop out (!))

Each side can plan for 3000pts of "toys" to be split across 2 tables.

It might be fun to deploy "flexibly" on either table - i.e. each game is linked...

Right, this is now happening as one big game in the gallery starting at 11am!

For people not playing in the apocalypse we have also booked the gallery eye and Gallery Room 1 all day on that Saturday (thanks to our chair Nathan).

Bring armies and I will balance forces on the day (pretty much) but the aim is ~1500+500 per person, maybe more for some if the sides are unequal.
