I have been leaning towards the bigger playing field for some time... the Apocalypse battlground. Over the years I have always tended to play games on a larger scale which meant using 2 or more Organisation Charts.
3 years ago I hit hard personal times and stopped playing, selling off most of my figures (including my beloved Warhound Titan), and even giving up my status as a Moderator on this very site.
However, dwelling not on what is past, I now find myself with a smaller Marine force which does not lend itself to the standard game, especially with the new figure I am intending to buy.
I have looked over the Apocalypse rules and my concern is how well those rules lend themselves to troop heavy Armies.
With so many big guns around, can troops survive? Can they take victory against a force full of vehicles and bombards?
I have never yet played Apocalypse proper, and neither have I seen a game in progress.
I wonder if any of you have played or watched an Apocalypse game, and whether, in your opinion, a force of Marines, primarily based on foot warriors, can hold up in such a hostile environment.
I have seen a few games and one was between 6 players, the game was huge! I noticed a lot of marines but I also noticed many people using lots of ordance type weapons. It seems most people were geared todwards tanks due to the survability of units. The IG player had enough items to wipe out marines by the 100's. Tanks are a big part of the game.
I feel not only do troops seem to have little chance of survivial, but also, the Marines in general, do not seem to have the out and out vehicle destructive power of many other forces.
That aside, it would be my opinion that no force would do well in the Apocalypse environment if they based their Army on troops.
