Recommended Posts

Hey guys today we had our wrap up Apocalypse Party, 63000 points between 19 people! Speaking of people here are those lovely people:

Please note that this is not everyone that was in the league, missing is Aaron, Tyler S., and Blake.

The teams had Imperial vs Chaos with the xenos broken up between the two.  Each team selected a Warmaster for their team, selecting Davis and Abbadon for Choas vs Tyler B. and a unnamed Platoon Commander for the Imperium. The teams then secretly bid a time of 30 minutes or under for deployment, the lower bid got to deploy first and then go first. Chaos bid 15 minutes vs the Imperial 17.5. Chaos go to deploy first which allowed the Imperial team to counter deploy and then try to seize the initiative., which:

As you can see didn't go that well. Onto Chaos Turn 1!

For food we had some awesome stuff! We had homemade baked goods and pizza, what more could you ask for!

The day had many memorable moments, many of which you can see in the photos linked to below, the most memorable in my mind was when this bad boy decided to blow up!

That right, the big Eldar Phantom titan suffered an explosion! That meaning every unit within 3D6 suffered 2D6 mortal wounds.

Well, well, well 17" is certainly gonna cause a lot of damage.

And that it did! The explosion took out well over 3000 pts worth of models! This was just one of the crazy things that went down. The battle was hard fought, but unfortunately the Imperium didn't bring enough bodies, which allowed Chaos to control most of the objectives which gave them a commanding lead!

Thats right! Chaos won 38 to 15 points! This was at the end of turn 3 when people decided that the game came to a nice conclusion and we called it! What an amazing day of gaming, foods and friends. Many more pictures are available here:

Thanks for running these escalation leagues Kevin. Tracking pairings and performance week over week is a little slice of Excel hell that I'm glad you took on.

 

That store was packed all Fall and this league was a big reason for that. Kudos!

 

Congratulations to the winners and all the participants as well. 40k is surely alive and well in these parts!
