I hereby relinquish Sammael, because I lost my painting/modeling area for about a month, and there's no way I can get the Ravenwing done in time. My army might be a lot more of "what I already have painted" than "stuff meant to bring down titans" due to these unfortunate circs.

I've also heard through the grapevine that Order may have some overlapping strategies, and a coordination email from our Warmaster might be warranted to eliminate redundancies.

That's a good point, John. Maybe we should start an email thread and share lists, talk about filling in points (if some team members can't produce 3000), and start the strategizing. I'd love to show the rest of my team what I'll be bringing (it's tanks. lots and lots of tanks).

Of course you do.

Do the good guys still have to spend the points for void shield generators? I don't know if that's a thing, but I vaguely remember it.

Guys, I never kid about Void Shields.

My impression is that there's enough extra points available on the Order side from people not filling quota to absorb some stuff like that. Sometime shortly I'm going to compile everyone's email address & send out a reminder about painting, and points.

I don't have a final tally yet but I'm definitely going to be able to spare some points for the team for items like superheavies and fortifications.

Sounding the warning klaxon that we're just under a month out from the Apocalypse grudge match!

Details are all being debated in this very thread, with details tracked in the first post.

For the Recon Squad day the long story short is everyone should prepare one 200 point list following the Recon Squad rules, and another 500 point list containing that 200 point list.

For the Apoc day the long story short is that everyone should prepare a 3000 point list as well as bringing some extras if possible to fill in any gaps on the team. If you know it's going to be a struggle for you to field that many points credibly, please let us know!

As discussed earlier, we'd really like to step up the look of the board this year. So please if at all possible try to at least prime & quickly base coat your army. Having any color on there at all will really dramatically improve the overall look and after-action photos.

Let us know if you have any questions, will only make one day, etc..

Due to a delay in warp travel, I will not be able to bring my super-awesome OMGWTFvindicatoronsteroids. I won't have super-heavies of any kind, actually, so if there are any extras floating around to borrow we should allocate some of my points for some big guns.

@Colin - Justin and I have 7,000 points of Necrons for the Apoc game. Is that too few or too many points for our side?
