When I got the Apocalypse book and started looking at the images of all those BIG
I thought to myself this is really good.
Then the opportunity came up to buy one of those Space Marine Company box sets and I thought why not. Then I thought wouldn't this be really cool if it were part of a complete chapter in a monstrous sized game. Remembering that GW
had done just this for one of the old codexes I figured why not - so that is what I decided to do.
Now, by myself this would be too much to handle so I figured why not get the help of some friends and as the owner of a local independant store I have the ideal location to display the figures. Not only that but it gives us a place to play the mother of all Apocalypse battles - I am moving stores and will have a 36 ft
by 20 ft
gaming room. So that is what we are doing
As they are the most available it is going to be Ultramarines and I have been lucky eonugh to enlist the help of quite a few people already who are pretty handy with the modeling and painting - one of them even claimed in the Golden Demon 2006 40k
I will be posting updates here but the real Blog behind it can be found as a subsection of my site www.games-cavern.com/category/apocalypse-wow/
I will be posting details on the progress regularly - at the very least it makes me get on with it
When it is finished and we have moved into the new shop I will be running the battle based around a scenario of the Marines defending a Fortress Monastry wherein is being kept Ancient Relics and Artifacts from all over the galaxy where they are being studued by the Librarians and Chaplains of the defenders of Ultramar. The secret has been let slip and the Heretics and Xenos are racing to lay claim to the secrets locked in the monastry - they will not find it easy......
A list of the specif squads and who is doing them will be made available shortly but if you want to join in then just let me know
