In case you missed it, yesterday was the international tabletop day. By pure coincidence, we organized another Apocalypse game on the same day. This time the scenario was designed with a cross shaped battlefield. In it’s center, the Imperial Guard defended a fortification around a vox relay, supported by Grey Knights. They were under siege by Death Guard, Black Legion, Orcs and Necrons, each starting from a side of the cross. A seventh challenger, the Eldar, used warp portals to cause mayhem everywhere 🙂
Each force was 2500 points strong, with a only one Apocalypse unit allowed. The game itself took us roughly 16 hours, from 11 AM to 3 AM. The cross design of the battlefield was a nice change from the usual face to face battles. I enjoyed it enormously, even though my Necrons spent a lot of time in cover until the mid/end game. In the end, the Eldar won way ahead of everyone else. My Necrons came third, which is more than I expected throughout the game.
