BOYL Epic game

Looks like we've got a fair bit of interest in this.

Players include
Me - Imperial Guard and Space Marines (might have a few Orks painted up by then that I can throw into the mix)
My mate Ollie - painted Tau and loads of Orks that need painting yet
Legio Custodes (plus 3 mates)- Space Marines and lots of Titans.
Chico - Orks
Curtis - Orks

Apologies if you've expressed interest somewhere else other than the Oldhammer weekend thread and I've missed you off - let me know if you're wanting to join us on this thread.

I'd prefer to play this on the Sunday, purely because I'm also hoping to play a large Warhammer Siege game on Saturday and I'd rather tackle those rules when I don't have a hangover! :mrgreen:

Again if you have any strong preferences or can't make Sunday let me know - I am flexible.

Other than that please use this thread to outline the size of your force and what kind of game you want to play.

Here's what I've got -

Imperial Guard

Image

1 Artillery Company
Nearly 1 Rocket Companyv(Just need to track down a squadron of Whirlwinds)
1 Predator Company
1 Leviathan Regimental HQ
2 Stormblades
1 Baneblade
Sentinel detachment
3 Manifolds of Robots
Deathstrioke missile battery

To paint up yet:
One detachment each of Tactical, Assault and Support infantry
1 Commissar
1 Squadron of Bikes

Space Marines

1 Tactical Company

Image

1 Land Raider Company

Image

To paint
1 Battle Company
1 Devastator Detachment
1 Veteran Detachment
1 Terminator Detachment
2 squadrons of bikes
2 squadrons of Land Speeders
1 Warlord Titan
1 Medic
1 Chaplain
1 Librarian

Game ideas -
Between me and my mate Ollie we will have 3 Mega Gargants on the way and hopefully painted in time. These could form the central objective for the Imperial forces - 3 semi built (stationary but with all weapon systems operational) Mega Gargants that are to form the core of Waaaagh insert daft pun name here. This should give the Imperials a pretty tough objective to achieve total victory and the chance for the (at the moment, outnumbered!) Orks to also claim victory if any Mega Gargants are salvageable by the end of the game - the Waaaagh will live on!

We could always mix things up a bit and let the Orks roll each turn to see if the Mekboyz can actually get the Mega Gargants moving... :twisted:

Random forces like Tau (if Ollie wants to play them) could enter the fray on which ever side they feel would benefit them.

Re: BOYL Epic game

Well I'm well and truly neck deep in Orks atm. I plan to bring 1 of each Clan Card plus Support Cards and Gargants.

Not too much finished so far:

Evil Sun Clan Card
Bad Moon Dread Mob Support Card
Blood Axe Nobz from the Blood Axe Clan Card
Snakebite Squiggoths Support Card.

Also I don't mind playing either day or both as I'm only bring Epic so if someone wants a few games of Epic on the other day I'd be game

Re: BOYL Epic game

Excellent - if my pal Ollie can get his painted up in time then you can add a fair sized Deathskulls themed army to your Waagh. Not forgetting the 3 Mega Gargants!

I'll see if I can get any of mine done to help out but there's lots of other stuff in the queue.

Have no fear I will have alot painted by the time, I'm also working on some Terrain (SM Buildings) atm to bring up and hopefully I might be able to pick up some more on Ebay to add to the ones I have.

Re: BOYL Epic game

Great stuff - 6mm terrain is something I don't have much of apart from those lovely card buildings that came with the 2nd ed boxed set.

Re: BOYL Epic game

Wow! That's a great looking army! :) I can't believe you're only using one Leviathan though! :shock: I've had too many of mine taken out by Gargants to risk fielding just one!

Just as I start to paint my Leviathans, it's looking like I can't make the weekend full stop which is a shame because I really enjoyed OH13 (even if I was so tired I could hardly keep my eyes open) and a big SMv2 game would be the dogs danglies. :(

If by some sheer fluke I could make it on the Sunday I'd be bringing a 4k IG army consisting of:

Companies:

1x Artillery
1x Tactical
1x Heavy
1x Storm Hammer
1x Shadowsword

Support:

1x Ogryns
1x Sentinels
1x Rapiers
1x Rough Rider

Special:

1x Leviathan
1x Leviathan
1x Inquisitor

Other painted bits and pieces I could bring:

1x Assault Company
1x Baneblade Company
1x Bike Company (always good at nabbing objectives and with a CAF of 3 they're great in assaults! :D )
1x Leman Russ Company
1x Rocket Company (two is probably a bit of a piss take against Orks)
1x Vindicator Company
2x Deathstrike Support
2x Hellhound Support
2x Thudd Gun Support
2x Mole Mortar Support
2x Rapier Support
2x Tarantula Support
2x Robot Support
2x Sentinel Support
Etc..

Btw, what sort of Whirlwinds are you after? I've got 3 assembled but unpainted Mk1's available for sale or trade.

Selected photos of my army:

Rocket Company 1

Basilisk Support

Tactical Company

Artillery Company

Hydra

Baneblade Company

Rapiers
Image

Leman Russ Company

Vindicators

Heavy Company

Re: BOYL Epic game

Fingers crossed that you can make it Bug - that's a fine Guard force you have there.

2 Rocket companies against Orcs does bring up images of fish in barrels and large bore shotguns! :lol:

You've got me worried about my lone Leviathan now - come to think of it, last time it was close assaulted by a load of Tau battle suits. Although it wiped most of them out it was inevitable that the last couple would find a chink in it's substantial armour.

Oh and 1 squadron of Mk1 Whirlwinds are precisely what I'm after :mrgreen:

Re: BOYL Epic game

Nice looking Guard armies, I am rather scared now though.... so many barrage weapons ain't got me happy. Time to build up my Kult of Speed so I can turn 1 charge you if I'm lucky with my Mek cards heh
