I am still apocalypsing on the 3rd. To that end, I will be attempting to make 2 tree trunks for people to hide in, one for each side, 9" high and about 18" wide.
I "shudder" to think what the "landscaping" around your home looks like now :!: :mrgreen:

NICE WORK! Incorporating the objective number into the paint scheme is genius.

I listed my Warlord on the form, but seeing it take up the corner table in my basement... I'd rather not haul all 57 pounds of it from Ohio. I'll bring it if you really want to include it, otherwise I'll stick with my Knights and Warhound.

Looking forward to the game!

I was actually going through stuff for planning purposes and was going to request that you not use the Warlord. Warhounds and Knights should be fine though. I think you listed yourself as 3000 pts though--I can't imagine you fielding under 4000 with a Warhound though?

I did the math and I can hit 4,500 if I meet my painting goals for next week. A bit higher if I just throw random units on the table. I'll update my form.

Question, though - are you using the older Apocalypse rules for the Warhound, or the updated rules in Horus Heresy?

4000 is the goal, but having 4500 is always good for team balancing purposes. I would personally make a 4000 + 500 pt "add on" list, unless you hear otherwise before then. As for the Warhound, I'm not quite sure if we use the Apoc rules, or the ones in Escalation (I think it's in there, too), but I'm pretty sure no one is using the HH rules for it.

There has supposedly been updates or faq's for the Titans.

Of particular note is that a Titan "can't be tied up in combat" :!: :!:

I'm fine either way - I don't have a copy of the current Apocalypse book, but I'll try to find one before the event. Warhounds weren't included in Escalation.

The current rules in HH Book 5 are quite a bit different, as Cable mentioned. The cost went up but they feel like an actual Titan now.

So, bad news........................................I'M OUT :(
Holiday doings and such. Slight chance I may be able to stop by late Sunday to hang out.

In the meantime I could meet up with someone this week to "lend out " a tub 'o terrain :!:
................and "hand off" the Secret Santa mini I painted :!:
