Default Apocalypse Release day armies

Ok Apocalypse is about to come out in Australia (I'm not sure if it out already or not in the states and Europe) and of course every GW and most independent stockists and clubs will be having some for of insane "bring everything you've got and we'll have a game" thing happening. For example my local GW will be pushing together all 4 tables, bringing out 10k points worth of their models and inviting everyone else to bring whatever they've got.

So I was just curious to know what armies people will be or have used (if it's already happened elsewhere around the world) at these events.

To be polite (well ok I only got this many models :P ) I'me gonna take about 1-1.5k of my Black Templars, 2 normal bolter armed tactical squads, 1 super choppy tactical squad with BP's and CC weapons and 5 scouts, Dreadnought, Landspeeder Typhoon, Predator Annihilator, Assault squad, High Marshal, Master of Sanctity, and Emperors champion and just the the hell of it, a Vindicare Assassin.

Anyone gonna take a really big army?

Ah, I think UK get it a day or two before us Aussies, and US is the day before given the time differences.

I've got my Apocalypse Bundle on pre-order, which I'll pick up at 7.45am from my GW store. At the moment I'm not sure if I'll just spend the morning building a Baneblade and/or Vindicators, though I was considering bringing along my Mech Tau Force, or maybe just three hammerheads and a Skyray. But I don't think I'd be taking a big army, maybe just my standard 1500 or 2000 point lists that I use.

Eldar and Tau. Mobile forces unite!

I'm thinking:
4x
Shas'El Battlesuit
Plasma Rifle, Cyclic Ion Blaster, Multi-tracker, Targeting Array, Hard-Wired Drone Controller(2 Shield Drones)
Total: 520

5x
Shas'Ui Battlesuit
Twin-Linked Missile Pods, Shield Generator, Hard-Wired Drone Controller (2 Shield Drones)
Total: 500ish

5x
Shas'Ui Team Leader Broadside
Shield generator, Hard-Wired Drone Controller, 2 Shiled Drones
Total: 600

3x
5xSwooping Hawks
Exarch(Skyleap)
396

5x
3xGuardian Jetbike
ShuriCannon
Warlock(Singing Spear)
Total: 560ish

5x
Farseer
Doom, Jetbike
Total: 525ish

Around 3000 points of what I'd bring to the table. I think it'd be a very interesting battle. Each unit of Broadsides can reach 6', which is good odds to be able to hit atleast one tank. And I think I heard of a few Super Heavies being costed at 400 points(more than 3x what a Broadside costs). And best of all, EVERY unit can fire while staying out of LoS, whether by JSJ, being on an Eldar Jetbike, or being able to drop 'nades.

But this is strictly for Vassal.

I like the way my local Gw is doing things.

Bring out 1500 points of models (they know alot will most likely come out, plus their own armies) The battle starts at 1 AM and ends at 4 PM. Gonna be a long day.

I'm just going to pull out my big bugs for this... 8 monsterous creatures and the rest of points of rippers. I bet half of them will be gone turn one by the sounds of some of the rules. ><

Other than this game, I'm staying away from APOC. (hopefully)
