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.
Here we have assembled the side of “good”. … awaiting the side of chaos. “Good” consisted of Eldar (wraithguard-my ofcc army), an ArmorCast Scorpion, and the Phantom. IG air cav… tanks …tanks… and more tanks. A couple groups of IG Knights.. and some Space Marines and sisters. As you can see in the photos.
Initially the Chaos Warhound placement… but he thought better of it and slid to the far end (away from the Phantoms LOS).
Both sides are assembled!…
Those vortex rockets were sure annoying! (they help end the Eldar Scorpions time on the table).
Things get really messy those first couple rounds…
The short time they were on the table… the Hornets managed to rough up some spawn.
BACK YOU DAEMON SCUM!
Not 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.
Darn little pests… they did damage to my Phantom… but soon they were cleared away by a stomp with help from my wraith knight.
The Phantom really helped “cleanse” the table … those big D-cannon pie plate templates were NASTY.
This 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.
Now 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!
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.
