Details for this weekend! Drop a line if you have any questions.

Venue & Parking

Battlezone is my (tjkopena's) house in Roxborough. Address is in the email you should get/have gotten.

There is plenty of parking on the street immediately out front. Just pay attention to not block in the one No Parking zone signed between the fire hydrant and curve on the opposite side of the street.

The first person here can pull up into the driveway alongside the house, but don't block the garage otherwise.

What To Bring

Your army and all your gear needed to play! If you have Apoc templates please bring them even if you yourself won't be using them this weekend.

Some cash for food. No specific plans at the moment but certainly ordering pizza at least once, couple other options nearby. I'm sure some people will be bringing beer, as you are very welcome to do.

If you have & can easily bring a folding chair, it would be nice to bring. I have five, but the couches we also used last year are probably going to have to be moved out of the play room.

Discord players, don't bother to bring any hopes & dreams of victory, you won't need them.

Apocalypse army sizes have largely been coordinated by Colin already, but if you didn't receive any special assignment then the default is 3000 points, 4000 if you're fielding at least 500 points of superheavies/gargantuans. Some people got higher or lower assignments based on their points available and balancing the teams.

No, you should plan on bringing your terrain. Still trying to figure out the overall battle plan, Colin has an interesting idea but we're not sure it will physically work. So not sure on the terrain exactly, but probably incorporating yours.

I can bring the "old City Fight" buildings with scatter stuff, plenty of old A + B ruins, plenty 'o palm trees and/or the "fantasy style" stuff I lent last year.

Any preferences.....just let me know :!:

Tom, please bring your City Fight buildings, the scatter stuff (no tank traps though as they make maneuver impossible for vehicles), and the bastions (if they're painted; if not a black spray coat followed by a mist of gray should do the trick). I've got the A&B ruins covered from my collection. You can leave the trees and fantasy stuff at home as well. We'll also have the Medea Refinery, Matt's airfield, and Jason's hab tenements, plus some more ruins, so I think we'll be all set.

No reason not to bring the sentry guns for Saturday. We could also "mount" them in a couple of my bunkers on Sunday to make those defense turret thingies whose name escapes me at the moment. If you're interested in doing that, PM me and we can figure out the details to include them in your army.

I think that about covers it, but if you think of anything else, just ask!
40K: Chaos Marines/Demons (15,000+ pts), Catachans, Angels of Death, Orks & Crons

Dust: Axis & SSU
FoW: Ger. Grenadiers & Armoured Sqdrn.

Just realized as I'm doing an inventory of terrain...that I only have 4 City Fight Buildings -- 2 large + 2 small (the other half I donated to Joe and are @ Redcaps).
Have 2 larger/converted Bastions (others went to an auction @ Showcase).

That's fine, Tom. I think Joe is bringing your old buildings back from Redcap's.

Yeah, Tom, the ones you left with me are at Redcap's & get used often by 40k & Infinity players. I'm going to go Friday evening and borrow back a bunch of our terrain.

Edit: Ohmygod, Friday is today.
