Apocalypse Battle Report - San Diego

An almost 100,000 point Apocalypse battle took place at At Ease Games, a new game store in Poway, CA, started by Ron Kent, a member of the San Diego Apocalypse group run by John Macomber.

John ran the game and it was Orks, Tau and Dark Eldar on one side against Imperial and Eldar on the other. Here is how it broke down.

ORKS / DARK ELDAR / TAU  47,500 points 

IMPERIAL / ELDAR  48,600 points

The Ork team had almost twice as many structure points, but less "D" weapons.


The Table - 8' wide by 18' long

The Imperial Guard had a ton of Manticores, that were taken out pretty fast by the Enemy on Turn 1

The Ork battle line....

 ....gets rushed on Turn 1 by the Eldar and Marines.

Flyers everywhere!


Thoughts on the game:

1)  We have never seen so many flyers on a table, thanks mainly to David Ashworth and his Greg Teeuwen produced Ork flying circus (which you can see on the Apocalypse Forum) and myself and my IG Air Force.  Tau showed up with their devastating Tigersharks.  It really was great to see the back and forth in the air.

2)  The battle line was drawn diagonally, which always adds flavor to the game.

3)  There were 10 objectives, 3 each deployment zone, and 4 in the neutral zone.  We used the Modified Objective Scoring Rules with objectives weighted.  Objectives were counted every player turn, starting Turn 2.

4)  In addition, you got a single objective point for every two structure points destroyed!  This, it was actually a little more dangerous to load up on Super Heavies.  This worked very well.

The game ended at the end of Turn 4 and the Imperial side won by ONE POINT!  48-47.   Now that is the way a game should go!

Would you add in anything about gargantuan creatures re: objective points for structure points?

Oh yeah I think it was the same for them. I forgot to mention that. But we didn't have many Gargantuan Creatures.
