My mates, Ben, Liam, Otty and I had a 12 hour Apocalypse battle. The report is being written on the blog, but given the scale of what I was trying to do was sketchy at best. However, it's more about the spectacle with this, so if you like your hobby porn and enjoy nothing more than 4 totally bada$$ completely painted armies featuring many scratchbuilt and unique items then enjoy. Oh, there was a scratchbuilt Warlord Titan too,









Prelude to war is here: http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/apocalypse-wow-12500pts-of-armageddon.html

First turn will be on the blog tomorrow.

Does someone want to tell the Titan it's looking In the wrong direction.
That's what I said, but they wouldn't turn it around :(

My first turn was quite effective with guaranteed reserves arriving from Deep Strike with a Flyrant, 3 Spore Pods with 10 Devgaunts each in two pods and the Doom in the 3rd, Trygon Prime, 4 Sky Slashers with Spinefists and 10 Gargoyles all closing on the objective and removing both Manticores.



Meanwhile the green tide advanced.



Eventually Crimson Fist reserves arrive in the from of this 'X-Wing Pattern' Storm Raven



'Nancy' strikes back

That is awesome. So impressed with the conversions, scratch builds, paint jobs and sheer scale. Good on you all!

Indeed the paint jobs are very impressive. My only thought running through my head was, "Thats right, we got a massive Titan; Fuck your Nids!." Made my day :)

This is just Phenomenonal, never had an interest in Apocalypse because the boards are always too small and it's just sitting and shooting, but the board is huge, roo to move the scenery fits and everything is so well painted.

Turn 3, start as we mean to go on:



My Tyranid forces finally start to take on the guard.



While what remains of Otty's central assault has still a long ways to go:



While NOT Lysander is the sole remaining Terminator from his squad to face down the Hormagaunts under the shadow of the Warlord Titan

Turn 4, 5 and 6, pretty much flew by at this stage so there are less photographs and the end result is here: http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/apocalypse-wow-12500pts-of-armageddon_9.html

However the highlights include Nancy 2 taking on all comers



The last ditch attempt of my nid force to break into the Imperial Guard deployment zone:



Nancy 2 on her 3rd helpings of Super Heavies



Lets shoot some flyers



Thanks for your indulgence, we'll definitely be doing it again some time next year. Meanwhile my good buddy Liam who scratchbuilt the Warlord, Warhound, Lightnings and all sorts has just started a blog. He's new at this so be gentle as he finds his stride but his first post is starting how to scratchbuild your own Land Speeder Tempest so if that's not a statement of intent I don't know what is. Who knows what insane step-by-steps he'll share. So check out http://bluewarpstudios.blogspot.co.uk
