300K Apoc Game-Forces of Chaos

While our commander wouldn't sit still for a photo, I'd thought I would show the rest of the Conclave. First up is Dave, another Khorne fanatic. The wall of red in front of him is his 25,000 points of Berzerker-infused madness.
And a close-up of Dave's new Forgeworld Reaver Titan. The green effect o the eyes is a pair of powerful LEDs! This baby will light up a room in the dark!
Here Paul checks his list twice (just like Santa, only eviller). His are the forces in the top right, but this is a good photo of the total forces at one end of the table. That is at least 100,000 points of models!
and Paul and his forces in their glory. Paul brought about 45,000 points of Night Lords and Thousand Sons. Just to the right are the forces of the Alpha Legion. Their master is curiously (and characteristically) absent for posterity. Treg knocked out over 4,000 points in less than 3 months! Maybe a big game is what everyone needs to get painting!
And last but definately not least is Rob, with a huge Iron Warriors force, meshed with Nurgle Daemons. Rob had more Obliterators than some folks have models! He hopes to have some Perturabo pattern siege tanks soon.

Next time, my models and some thoughts about the game and how we pulled it off.

300K Apoc Madness!

I thought I would share some action shots and some pics of a few of the Imperial commanders with you.
Here are a pair of shots from the Big Game. First up is a nice shot of the Twin Terrors of Khorne (Touradj and Dave) moving into action. On the left you can see Dave's new Chaos Reiver Titan. In the back you can see the Forge World Fortress wall, keeping the hordes of loyalist tanks in place. That is my new (to me at least!) Armorcast Reiver about to attack the wall. I later relented attacking the wall so as to keep the Imperial tanks bottled up behind it!
Here is some action from the other side of the table. The Alpha Legion is on the left, with Iron Warriors in the back. Imperial Fists and the forces of the Inquisition are moving against them.
Above is Walter and his army. Walter was the Imperial General, which meant he got to herd the Imperial players into getting everything done, pass out Strategic Assests, and handles the Big Game rules with Touradj, the Chaos General. He brought about 35,000 points of Imperial Fists and their Succssors along. This doesn't include any of his Guard models!!
Here we have Quentin, known as Q. Q brought a massive Inquisitional Army, with both Daemon and Witch Hunters. It was about 50,000 points! Very nicely painted, I liked his Immolators better than the 'Eavy Metal ones.
Mario ran one have of the Ultramarine force. In addition to finishing his own army, he painted for hire to help finish other players armies! He brought a scratch-built Warhound and Thunderhawk to issue death to Khorne. that is Brian in the background. Brian led a small force of Salamanders.

I'll share some photos of the Chaos commanders next time.

The Imperial Primarchs

Here we have Roboute Guilliman. He was dragged down by roiling mass of Berzerkers and Khorne Dreadnoughts.
Rogal Dorn was still leading his legion, dueling with the Night Haunter in the middle of a Chaos shrine.
Leman Russ. My favorite Primarch model we had. He was converted and painted by "Little" Matt, who did many of the Primarchs.
Vulkan had just slain Angron when the game ended. Very nice execution on this model.
And lastly we have Corax. He was mauled by a host of Iron Warriors and Chaos Daemons.

Back tomorrow with some action pics and army photos!

The Other Chaos Primarchs

As promised, here are more Primarch shots. Above is Alpharius, or is it Omegon? It might be both! I apologize for the blurriness, though that might be Alpharius' doing!
Here is Angron before he takes daemonic form. Vulkan and his lackeys slew him in hand-to-hand combat.
Here is Magnus the Red, before the Space Wolves knock out his eye.
Here is the Night Haunter. He was last seen going toe to toe with Rogal Dorn
And lastly we have Perturabo. I believe a mass of Marines and Sisters brought him low.

Imperial Primarchs tomorrow!
