PostSubject: The Apocalypse is Nigh!   Tue Jul 23, 2013 11:58 am

Dudes, I'm surprised no one's posted anything on this yet. The new Apoc book is awesome!!!!

I've always been an Apoc fan. When the first Apoc book came out, I played nothing but Apoc for 7 straight months. We stopped only because there was a tourney coming up, and pretty much everyone had forgotten about such things like points-cot and FOC. I remember looking at a 6x4 table and thinking, "that's small"

Anyways, the new Apoc book not only streamlines and updates the rules to 6th ed, it's also really flavorful. They've funky new rules like armored formations (if your tanks fight in some particular formations, they gain benefits), new scenarios, new formations etc. And the new objective rules are great. You count VP everytime the game stops for a scheduled break (lunch, tea, etc). So grabbing objectives at the very last minute is not the best idea any more. But objectives are also interesting - the side that controls the objective is the side with any model CLOSEST to an objective - closest can mean 24" or whatever - as long as it's the closest model. And even your lowly Sentinel counts.

Anyways, there's just so much info in the book (it's big. smaller than the main rules book, but big!). I also like the new vehicle damage rules too. The book pretty much recommending ignoring all pen damage table results other than Explodes! so just count hull points reduction an explosions. And there's going to be lots of explosions! And D-weaponry just got scarier. There's a new 15" template!!!!

Ok ok, I'm really looking forward to the next Apoc game ...

Who's up?

Haven' got myself the book. But surely will.

I've been waiting for this thread actually. When? Better set the game at HForge since the 1st game will surely be a long one.

Actually the new book sets some good expectations. A normal Apoc game would take a day, maybe from. 9-6 or 7. The rules are cool. And wysiwyg is v important, since detailed rosters are not encouraged. So upgrades must be in the model

I have got the book adn we actually played a Apoc game in Penang the other day.
The rules are awesome with new formations. Anther thing about the tanks is that, in the manner they are deployed.
The formation of the deployment also grants them some kind of special abilities. Tank hunter etc etc.
Cool rules nonetheless.

Ya I really like the Armoured Spearhead formation rules. And the cool thing about IG Leman Russ companies is that it contains 3 Armoured Spearheads of 3 tanks each. Nice!

Give us a batrep dude. The new Apoc looks like quite a good improvement over the last

Having read the new book, I must say that I like it Smile
Love the formations and special rules. I particularly like the High Command formations with it's "All Out Attack"

Very nice.. still reading it. If got chance will try this back home.
