I'm not sure if this goes here or battle reports, so I'll stick it here for now. Move at will if needed.

I was at GW today and rounded up 4 mates and had an Apoc battle. My mate had 4000 points of Blood Angels so I decided to use the angels rules for my marines and take a huge Angels army with some allied Grey Knights.

The opponents (3 of them) had Necrons x2 and Chaos.

We totaled 5800pts against 6500 of theirs. We were outnumbered like termis to grots but were pretty confident.

First turn we phased out a full squad of cron warriors, killed half of another squad (none got back up) killed off a fat load of Spawn and marines and already got into close combat with a furioso, 3 chaplains, Librarian and his vet assault squad. We won all those combats (as we do) and a squad of chaos ran off the edge in fear:biggrin:

We had a disruptor beacon and the chaos player deep striked with termis and walked up the edge with possessed using some other strategem. We moved them both to the farthest corner where they were useless. we lost 4 marines to shooting and an immobilised dread. Combat wasn't too great and I lost a termi from the nightbringer.

Second turn, 2 barrages came down killing a squad of chaos devastators and a few marines. I walked up my GK termis with GM up at the Nightbringer, and a squad of GK at his useless termis. we took more dead by shooting and assault was delicious. I wiped out his whole termi squad with my GK without taking any casualties (as I would with 30 attacks at str6 and I5). Wounded the Nbringer but lost 2 termis.

The game ended from time out there. We had 4 objectives ot their 2.

My first Apocalyptic Win.:victory:

it was a good game total cost for our side was 5779(the odd number is because of the grand master and his unit which were 619), there armys combined were closer to 7200-7300 with 2000+ of chaos marines

we also went overboard with independant characters at a total cost of 2374 which included the following

Dante
Mephiston
4x chaplins(one in termi armour)
2x librarians(both in termi armour)
2x captains (one armed with lightening claws the other with pFist and plasma)
and 619 of grand master and his posse

after bloodhound left i finished up the game by almost making the necron players phase out(3 to kill of one player and 5 to kill of the others)

in total we lost 2 dreads, 1 chaplain, 9 veteran assault marines, a whole unit of termis and half a devistator unit

it was a fun game

here is a link to one of my chaplins, most of my models are slightly conerted in some way

the full ten with jump packs and a chappy but i only got one round of combat with them because all the squads opposed to them were eliminated with shooting and left them stranded out in the open, most of the casualtys on the opponents side of the board were caused by template weapons such as plasma cannons and missile launchers(got to love opponents who bunch up there infintry)
