I’ll post some in a few days along with a kill count and narrative!

Decoy completed:


This is 30 mins of work to set up tonight on the APOC board ready for the big battle tomorrow... inst it horrendous! The keen of you may notice the base is the same plywood one I used from Day 1 of the build!

Decoy deployed in front of some much better painted and much more fearsome opposition:

My garagehammer mates had many bad thing to say about ‘Stimpy’!!

Wow... APOC games are amazing but draining! Terror-Watts first outing was met with much swearing and astonishment. The APOC game lasted 1 night and most of the next day and Terror-Watt survived all 6 turns and even mildly tolerated some last turn ‘friendly’ fire to end the game on 28 wounds left! He killed 2 Warhound titans and a long list of other big units (necrons with quantum shielding are silly).

Some lessons on Warlord Titan usage:
1. Always sit down when you can, APOC games are long
2. A Quake Cannon will reliably one shot a Warhound Titan Even if you have rubbish dice!
3. All the little guns add to the massive damage, never underestimate them
4. A CCweapon on a Warlord is a bit wasted (generally the feet are good enough) Bring more Macro guns
5. Plasma Annihilators are amazing!
6. Always sit down when you can, APOC games are long (It’s so important it’s worth mentioning twice)

I’ll dial back the effort now and hook back into the painting in a month or so and hopefully complete the painting by Christmas/next APOC game

Were you playing the actual "Apocalypse" ruleset, or just big-points 40k?

Looks amazing on the table!

Good to hear that he did well. Looks like it was a fun game despite the time needed

Thanks, he sure did dominate the landscape down one end of the table. The APOC game was 30,000 points and was finished in 6 hours with a full 6 turns of play using 8th Edition 40k rules. The reason why it went sooo fast was We used nothing smaller than a Leman Russ Tank, and had 10min timed phases

Yeah we had a blast! It’s great to do 1 or 2 APOC games a year for kicks and giggles, nothing serious

That’s some serious heavy metal, with Terror-Watt looking like the heaviest of the bunch! Some really dense terrain too, looks lots of fun!

This project has just been incredible! Fantastic work on such an ambitious build. Superb detail, engineering and creativity.

The apoc game looked amazing - do you have any more photos you can share?

Great work all round + awesome that this is an NZ job!

What a great thread to follow through, from birth of the idea to the battlefield. Great to see Terror-Watt get it's moment to shine.
