On Saturday, January 22, 2011, gamers across the globe will unite in an Imperium versus Xenos Apocalypse campaign coordinated through http://www.apocalypse40K.com -- and hobbyists in North Texas will be able to participate, at HobbytownUSA Dallas!
All of the coordinating has been taken care of, through Adeptus North Texas -- all interested participants need do is arrive with their armies according to the instructions following, and attempt to win control of their corner of the worldwide battlefield through a massive multi-player Apocalypse 40,000 megabattle!
The game will take place at HobbytownUSA Dallas (the previous Game Hall which is now devoted to their in-store discounts and sales will be reconfigured for play use on the day) from 11am until 6pm. No purchase or sign up is necessary (although HTUD will continue to run their Games Workshop sale--buy 3 get the 4th free, or buy 4 get 2 additional free!--during the event).
Players should bring armies for either the Imperium (any Space Marines, any Imperial Guard, any Inquisition) or Xenos (Orks, Tyranids, Necrons, Eldar, Dark Eldar or Tau) in increments of 1000 points. Datasheets and superheavy vehicles/gigantic creatures are welcome, and can be used in place of a 1000 point increment; in the case of a superheavy which exceeds that approximate points block, the opposing side will be allowed to add increments to compensate, and players who bring additional 1000 point blocks may be allowed to field them, to balance sides. All models must be at least fully assembled, based, primed, and with at least some effort made toward painting; models need not be detailed/completed, but no bare metal/plastic or one-colour-primed models can be used in the megabattle. Space is limited; moderators recommend interested players use the emailing list via Adeptus North Texas to identify to host store and moderators their intention to play.
