Sunday, September 5th, 2010, at noon, Madness Games in Plano will show off their newly-relocated store, complete with fantastic new gaming space, to the North Texas community, by hosting a Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse Megabattle continuing the Scytulus III campaign narrative!
Participants may bring any one superheavy or gargantuan creature (of any points value, from Apocalypse, Apocalypse Reload, Imperial Armour I and II or GW's Apocalypse resource website) OR 500 points of their chosen army to the battle (no Force Org required, per standard Apocalypse rules). Players with larger forces are encouraged to bring additional units in 500 point increments, which can be added to their initial force to balance sides as needed. There will be no need to register for this battle in advance...simply compose your chosen force or construct your superheavy vehicle, and arrive on the day ready to fight for the Ruin of the besieged planet Scytulus III--as Chaos Daemons, Chaos Space Marines, Traitor Guard, Tyranids, Orks, Necrons or Dark Eldar--or stand in its Defense--as Inquisition, Imperial Guard, Space Marines, Eldar or Tau.
Anyone interested in bringing something costlier than the initial 500 point force which is not a superheavy-equivalent--such as a particular Apocalypse Datasheet, for example--can so indicate via http://www.adeptusnorthtexas.com , so that opposing-side players can create a counterbalancing force. In fact, indicating in advance on the hobby website emailing list that you will be attending, and for which side, will be a good way for players of either faction to begin coordinating with each other: the balance between the game-altering power of Apocalypse superheavies and Datasheets and the scoring units necessary to actually achieve victory can be a tricky thing to manage...
The Imperial world of Scytulus III is a precious resource--rich in the promethium reserves which power the Imperial war machine, and a potential recruiting world for multiple space marine chapters--and an ominous mystery, as its far continent appears to have been overtaken by catastrophe which has sundered the boundary between universes, letting the horrors of the Warp pour through. The initial clash has gone to Chaos, as whole Imperial cities have been smashed to ruin and their people enslaved; can her Defenders rally, or will Evil press their advantage to ever more terrible effect?
You can decide, at Madness Games, Sunday, September 5th!
