This weekend our gaming group "Battle for Salvation" held an Heresy Apoc battle. One side represented terra and the battle for the imperial city. the other half of the board representing Istivan III. Every model was fully painted.
What a great day of gaming.
check out the vid fred made up and posted on you tube

hmmm... yes, it really is a good video, and it looks like it was an amazing battle. Huge games like that can be really fun. The shots of all the burning tanks on the plains of the Isvaan tables were really cool, and i think that's what gives the idea of how massive the battle was.
But- while the video is good and all, it doesn't tell us what really happened. Did Chaos win? It looks like it at the end, with the picture of Horus holding Terra, but it doesn't tell how. Where there any great upsets, or heroics? At 60K, there had to be SOMEBODY that held off waves of enemy soldiers or something! You gave us really awesome scenes, but do you think you could get us some type of report? Even just brief, notable happenings?
Ha! you almost played a real 40k 40k game!
The pic is of ABADDON holding the planet Cadia. It was the front cover of the Eye of Terror Codex (which is so good people still play LatD and 13th Company Space Wolves)
Pretty cool battle, lots of very pretty models. Its nice to see 2 FULLY painted armies and no Proxys
3. Marital Bliss 2. Military Intelligence 1. MICROSOFT WORKS
Vassal Record 1-2.
Yea all 18 Legions were represented. Some lesser than others. We did have to do some scrambling in the last week to get unpainted models finished in time for the game.
No Proxies no unpainted smile.gif
I was running Dark Angels headed up by Sammael 3000 points.
The battle was a Chaos victory. The Space Wolves, White Scars, and the Khorne contingents were just about wiped out. Biggest moments of the day was with the death of Abbaddon the Black legion out from under the despoilers thumb turned and attacked the IW. The biggest surprise was Cypher joining the DA and then turning their guns on the Iron Hands.
Greatest moment came when while teleporting 1500 pts of BA and Imp Fists to the Imperial left flank, Word Bearer terminators dedicated to Khorne attacked and successfuly destroyed teleport pad thus stranding the Imperials inteleportation hell.
5th edition rules were played and made the game run alot faster then 4th edition was in apoc games.
We started the game around 9:30 am and finished 4 turns by 7:30 PM. We could have played a 5th round but guys were getting tired.
Other notable points of the battle was the Salamanders Librarians unbelievable ability to role 6's on his psychic hood...nullifying many 1k sons sorcerers psychic powers.
1st round orbital bombardments on objectives which proved both devastating yet ineffective on moving chaos elements off of objectives.
Even though Chaos did win the day points wise. At game end loyalists held the emperors citidel in the end and traitors held istvan III. All true to fluff.
Abbadons death and subsequent turning of the black legion on there fellow traitors and Cyphers return added an unbelievable fun wrinkle to the game.
Sons of russ could not resist the attraction of going full out and turning to fully engage its Dark angel rivals.
Im pretty bad at batreps so i appologise... if one of the guys does a write up i promise to post it here
