I was at an apocalypse game like, 2 weeks ago. It was xenos vs the other guys and they had 4 baneblades! 4! I was like "Holy shit!"
though xenos won because it was made up of mainly nids though there were plenty of orks, I would say 2000 points of orks. I'm not sure, but it was a fun game to watch.
I wish I had brought a camera with me. :(

I went to my local (40-minute-drive-away) GW yesterday, and saw they were having a "Tanksgiving" event, with oodles of armor.

Only saw two Baneblades. One an Ork-looted one and the other a mid-process conversion for Sisters of Battle.

Those things are awesome.

Someday, I'll think about getting one, if for no other reason than to build the thing!

Baneblades are awesome, but in Apocalypse, their awesomeness is diminished a bit by the sheer weight of firepower directed toward them. I'm glad they reduced the points cost for Apoc Baneblades.

My old armored company had 25 basic tanks, Weismann's Baneblade, another forgeworld baneblade, an armorcast baneblade, a forgeworld stormblade, and an armorcast warhound titan. I sold/traded off the two non-weismann baneblades and the warhound within the last year though. But I fielded that all once, in an apocalypse-style game well before the actual rules came out. My opponents had two warhound titans and a necron pylon. It was a sick game that had to end well before a winner was decided, but it was all in great fun.

Man I miss that warhound, lol.

I have three baneblades 2 of the new plastic and weisman`s old forgeworld 1 and a Forgeworld Warhound titan. I never really play them all at once unless its ether a massive game or the team im on have no super heavies whatsoever. But a stee fury company and a warhound titn is normally all the points im allowed in a game becasue we have many members on one team. The lack of infantry is disturbing but pplaying with only 4 models makes your army allot easier to follow :biggrin:
