Apocalypse Now (Yesterday!)

Yesterday marked the second Apocalypse 40k game at Battlefront Gaming. It was freaking amazing. There were two teams of three with ~3000 points each. I was with the Forces of Disorder and had the Titan Maniple you see in the first pic, my teammates had 3k of Imperial Guard/Chaos Space Marines, and ORKS! The orks did infinitely better than I ever imagined they would. Especially that squad of Grotz, who just would not die (vs a Dreadnought!) Unfortunately, I didn't get good pictures of that side of the battlefield, as I was slightly preoccupied with my end. My worthy adversaries included another Titan Princeps, commanding a single Warlord and a handful of Stormtalon reinforcements, (who was actually kind enough to allow me the use of a Reaver!) a Tau player who felt the need to NOT run the "cheese list" he came up with with tremendous amounts of Rail Weapons (including Area Denial Nodes, which could have gotten NASTY.) and a Space Marines player (he calls them Salamanders, but they aren't green yet... :P )

Now on to the breakdown of turns:

What a week!

Well, it's been ~13 hours since that last post, and I officially declare myself to be done building titans for now. I didn't finish them all, in fact, I only got one more to the point where I'll be able to use it tomorrow (for a total of two), but that's ok. Chance smiled upon me today, and as it turns out, there will be another Titan Princeps joining the fray, and he was kind enough to agree to allow me to utilize one of his Reaver Titans he ran out of room for. I'll be 50 points under the 3k limit, but I'm totally fine with that.

It's the Final Countdown!

I wish I had 24 hours left!

So it's Friday, and the game is tomorrow. I'm not sure I'll be able to make all the remaining Titans in time, but by the Emperor I'm going to try!

I'm currently taking a break so I figured I'd sit down and share what I've gotten done already. I finished the first Titan yesterday, and assembled the torsos of the other three. I'm about to start on the heads and then the... pelvis... area of the Titans, and if that goes really quickly, I'll finish off the weapon arms tonight that way I'll have two whole days to work on the legs and feet, which happens to be the part I'm dreading... the pose of the model is 100% dependent on the legs and they take FOREVER to assemble. And I'm doing all this before the big game on Saturday... I hope there's an Apocalypse game this Saturday... if not, well at least I'll have the structural stuff done and then I can detail as I see fit. In any case, here's a couple pics:

Combat Patrol 40k... the best kind of 40k

I'm starting to see the appeal...
So I played in a Combat Patrol Tournament today at Evolution Games in Lansing, MI...

Made of Win

One of my friends who plays in the local tournament scene sent me some pictures of one of the other armies in attendance during one such tournament. I really do still have a soft spot for Salamanders (and Space Wolves for that matter!), so I found these to be... most impressive. Now I want to take the time to share them with you, because they are so awesome!
