What sizes, cokors and textures are you looking for? I live near the JoAnn Fabrics national headquarters, they should have something laying around.

Sorry to arrive late to this thread, still on CP time. I will make all attempts to participate on Sunday. Saturday may be sketchy, as I'm traveling this week.

I picked 3K points on the form during signup, is this a good number or should I aim higher/lower? Should I coordinate with Colin or anyone else for that matter, or just show and wait to be told what to do? The flavor this year is *cough* Deamonkin.

Warren, just sent an email to you and the rest of the Chaos team. 4000 points is the target, but the goal is to also field painted stuff. Just let me know where you fall on that spectrum.

That would be awesome, man! Texture isn't terribly important; inexpensive is the best. Size would be whatever the most economical way is to cover an approximately 6' by 16' table. As for color, I think a dark tan or brown would be best, but a grassy green could work, too. Let us know what you find so we know if we have to procure one or not. Thanks!

No problem! I'm ahead of schedule on my last model needed for Sunday, so I'll head over tomorrow to see what I can find.

You'll have about 132 ft2 of dark brown cotton/poly blend to work with.

Catastrophe strikes! I'm beginning to suspect that the Inquisition has Officio Assassinorum agents in place to ambush the Chaos team with real life problems! I'm sorry to hear you can't make it though; hopefully you can come to the big summer event if not sooner. On the bright side, I guess this moots the Chaos or Humanity discussion for you though.

I know we have a couple of people who can't make it, and some who are "questionable" (both of which I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND...Life Happens), but I think it's a good idea to see how many players we have and on which side they will be playing. Even though I have put a lot into my Imperial Guard Army in preparation for this, given a few days notice, I can awaken a the Harmonkh Crownworld (NECRONS!!!!!) and switch sides...or play my own side for an awesome 3-way Apoc game!
