Well the Tesseract Vault, Obelisk and Lord of Skulls are usable by any and all armies! I'm personally adding an Obelisk to my Dark Angels, using this model:

See those things in the background? They're the Imperial Tesseract Vaults.

If you think you have the sculpting skills to make such a collection of human pelts have at it.

Anyone else concerned that Vortex Missiles could possibly be usable in vanilla 40k?


Beyond that, I'm tempted to grab a Tesseract Vault, but my gaming group almost never plays Apocalypse..

May get the book though, just in case.

Maybe Vortex Grenades might just be in the Imperial Guard unique weapons slot, but Missiles? GW want to sell physical, plastic stuff, not have people throwing Vortex Missiles around.

I'm assuming they'll have special rules and cost a boatload of points, so not really.

Well iPad sample stuff is out so let's see what we got.

From the Strategic Asset Cards:
Crusade Banner- Space Marines- A banner from the time of the Great Crusade instils incredible devotion. - Use this Strategic Asset after deployment is complete and nominate one friendly Space Marine Standard Bearer. All friendly Space Marine units within 24" of the Standard Bearer have the Feel No Pain special rule.

From the sample for the Apoc Book:
The sample only covers Chapter 1: "What is Apocalypse?".

Though of note I did see something interesting:
Defines 40k as 1 player on each side, Apocalypse as 4 or more players split into two sides and "Mega-Apocalypse" as 8 or more players split into two sides.

Also from the 40k Apocalypse blog:
Quote:
Lord of Skulls
Triple Khorne's sacred number is indeed its point cost. All directly battle revelant stats seem rather mediocre with 3's and 4's (except S which is 10 ofc). no 14's in its armour rating.
But it has 9 Hullpoints, and the rule "Fuelled by Rage", which gives it +1A for every lost HP (keeping that even if the HP is repaired later) up to A: 10.

"Tracked Behemoth": It may not Stomp, but use the "Thunderblitz" table for Ramming and Tank Shock for Superheavy Vehicles.

3 Weapon points, the axe which can't be exchanged (but has S: D !), one template weapon in the belly, one more conventional shooting arm-weapon.

The belly-weapons names:
- Gorestorm Cannon (Hellstorm template, MEQ killy high-S stat, standard loadout)
- Deamongore Cannon (Gorestorm with higher strength, gets hot and Instant Death)
- Ichor Cannon which is a large blast TEQ-killy weapon with slightly lower strength then the other options.

Armweapons:
- Hades Gatling cannon (standard loadout, 12 shots pinning version of what Forgefiends have)
- SKULLHURLER (caption for actually hurling skulls, which is cheesesome) which is an apocalyptic Blast MEQ killy high-S weapon with good range, and special rule "Gnaw" forcing successful saves to reroll.
From Darog's Company (claim is from iPad Sample, perhaps they got ahold of a different one than I did):

Quote:
Scoring is done based on the number of strategic objectives controlled each break and at the end of the battle.
Formation:
Ripctide Wing: 3+ Riptides gains Coordinated Attacks and Networked Reactors
Transcendent C'Tan (no rules listed)
WraithKnight Dreamwalker Squad: 3-5 Wraithknights. Gains Dreamwalk (fluff mentions faster response times)
Baneblade: 525 pts (with no sponsons), can take 2 sets of sponsons for 50pts a pair (lost option for flamer sponsons and option for extra armor), commisar tank upgrade for 45pts, and command tank upgrade for 200pts. HK/Stubber/SB all as guard codex

I'm quite sure that when Apocalypse went out the first time GW sold formations boxes at a smaller price so I was kinda disappointed when I saw the Apocalypse Formations prices on GW site: what's the point of picking them if the overall price it's just the total of every piece? I mean, if I take 1st Company Veterans I expect a saled price!

Appart from conveinience there is no point to getting these one click bundle deals....

Infact.. Some of these deals could end up costing you money.

Take for instance the 'Imperial Sheild Company' for the Imperial Guard. It costs 252.... for what you get in it, if you were to instead buy 3 battleforce boxes, then get the command squad and advisors separately, it only costs you 251, plus you get 3 sentinals extra... Those 3 sentinals would cost you 54 to buy extra.

The Necron Infinite Phalanx... It costs the same as 10 boxes of warriors, but, you don't get the scarabs with them you would normally.

The War Council of Mandragora is also cheaper if you bought it separately piece by piece...

The then Windrider Host for Eldar is also 210... separately, it'd cost you 206.


In other words, i'd suggest people shop smart and buy things separately, rather then using these one click deals.

Thanks for finding all the cool stuff. That crusade banner is pretty cool, though a lot of stuff denies FNP in Apocolypse. It's interesting that it labels Apocolypse by number of players and not points. I played a 3-on-3 game last week that was 750 points per player. Definitely not Apocolypse.
