Like in title; I know most GW stores tend to do an Apocalypse teaser game on september 29th. Pretty much meaning; bring as much models as you can, preferebly with armylist and join in on the battle.
It is a teaser game in the sense of that the Apocalypse rulebook ain't out yet but we can however get a sneak preview.
I know I am going to check a game out. First I wanted to go to Amsterdam; got me all hyped up since they're painting up Titans and a couple of hunderd marines, just for games like this. But given it's about a 3 hour drive by train and dragging along your overly, and bigger as usual, army around ain't that much fun, I might check out a more local, but not as "over the top" as the one in Amsterdam.
I do live near the German border, so I'll be checking out the game at the store in Aachen. The store manager convinced me to bring along my Chaos army because they were in need of it. Most GW stores I visited had a list on which you wrote your name, army and amount of points you'd bring. SO the list in the store was overcrowded with Imperial armies. Including 7000 points of guard. I've heard that bloke has like 5 baneblades and some more of that funky stuff going around in his army. Can't imagine 7000 points of guardsmen. I'd imagine something like someone walking in with a shopping cart and a shovel and shoveling models from the cart on the table. You could even try to get away with a "they all deepstriked".
There was a sole Chaos player on the list at the moment (a girl even 8Y) which was roughly 5500 points. So I dug up my old Undivided army, and my new Nurgle, Khorne and TS stuff. Oh.. and my current LaTD army. Without overpacking myself I'm bringing along 6000 points. I have no idea how I got that amount of points (yeah, the occaisonal "where did my money go" occurs) lying around.
But yeah, any one else going to a teaser game at GW? Anyone exited about being able to play a Apocalypse game before release? What army are you bringing and how many points?
As much as I would like to try out Apoc at some point, the idea of being surrounded by lots of screaming newblets doesn't appeal. xD
Nah, my main problem, other than the fact that I don't have more than 2000 points of anything, is that I don't drive and the nearest GW is a 30 to 60 minute drive away.
That and the two that are near me are both tiny stores so I wouldn't enjoy it anyway.
Still, I guess I'll just buy the book when it comes out

Yeah, I'm headed over to my local store to check this out and play in a tournament, but it sadly won't be until October for me here in NC.
I'll definitely give it a bash next week (they are running all day mega games each thursay at my local store), so I guess I'd be a fool to miss out!
Plus, i'm going to see if I can borrow my mates eldar titan again, man, those things rock!
I'll probably be bringing in about 3000 points of IG (mostly infantry).
"Pickles, the drummer, doodily doo. (Ding-dong, doodily, doodily, doo.)"
Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
I will be going to the one up the road from me in Oct.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
If I can I will be bringing a 1000pt space marine army, alongside a 500 ish points nid list
and I will act as a titan (you know, the really big one?) with my impenetrable tinfoil armour!
now if only I had that much tinfoil, hmm, maybe I'l wear an optimus prime mask just for kicks. hehe " I don't like your suckily painted necrons *crunch!*
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
Im going for a game ive already played 2 on my local stores vet nights, if you can take vortex grenedes they are so cool.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
we kinda already did a teaser game in my gw. At Harrow we have to store half the u.k games day boards. so for veterans night (incidentaly the night we discovered that Gw Harrow was closing) we got out the Siege of the emperors palace board and did a massive game on it.
three words, seven letters
OH MY GOD!!!
it was almost too awesome... apart from the fact that we soon have to say goodbye to Gw Harrow
