Black Friday Apoc – 2014!

We held our annual apoc game on black friday (nov 28)… At WoW in Portland, OR. It was great fun – I had a blast. The phantom titan was beastly – and I think I will not take it to another Apoc event unless there is another giant titan to spar with. The combined forces for “good” defeated the legions of chaos – in a somewhat slaughter.

The game was 30,000pts … 5k per player in 3 man teams. Here is the photo dump of the event.

IMG_1711.JPGBoth sides are assembled!…


IMG_1712.JPGThose vortex rockets were sure annoying!  (they help end the Eldar Scorpions time on the table).








IMG_1718.JPGThings get really messy those first couple rounds…


IMG_1717.JPGThe short time they were on the table… the Hornets managed to rough up some spawn.




IMG_1723.JPGNot sure whom finishes the Scorpion… but its days were numbered at this point.  I did clear the table of a couple things before that happened.


IMG_1720.JPGDarn little pests…  they did damage to my Phantom… but soon they were cleared away by a stomp with help from my wraith knight.




IMG_1725.JPGThe Phantom really helped “cleanse” the table … those big D-cannon pie plate templates were NASTY.



IMG_1726.JPGThis demon (blue one with wings…) did a bit of damage to the Phantom – too little too late.  I stomped him… with help from my allies as well.


IMG_1727.JPGBegone demon!


IMG_1728.JPGNow we’re just mopping up… I think we went to the 5th round.  After the Phantom “one-shotted” the Chaos Warhound… things went pretty quickly.


Thanks for stopping by!




What’s up? – Black Friday Apoc and nurgle

Wow, it’s been a few weeks and here’s the short and sweet recap. Thanksgiving started with a morning hike … Followed with good food with friends and family. Black friday started with breakfast with a gaming friend.. And followed with 8-9 hours of warhammer apocalypse madness. It was an awesome game and we kept it simple. We had lots of super heavies and titans… About 7 players which had 5000 pts each player. We worked to balance out the points differential with allowing destroyed units to come back after turn 3 … Which seemed to work out fine in our fun game.

After Friday I had a busy weekend… Then Monday I came down with a horrendous cold… Probably given to me by a stray shot from the nurgle plague tower in our black Friday game. I missed 3 days work. I am still recovering … And I must make it to work this week.

I will leave you with some shots of my weekend… Including shots from black Friday apoc… Hope to get to feeling better soon so I can unpack my army from the apoc game.
