Default Mega Battle Planned -

With some mates being home from uni and me having a week off work, I really want a mega battle. I have enough to give 8,000 points a side of good and evil although I could go upto about 14,000 for evil. Im not sure what one of my mates is focussing on at the moment but one definatly has 2,000 + points of Skaven. I'm going to try and write a narrative, so some armies will be hard to include which means I cant use some of my and my mates armies. We wont stick to force organisation charts too strictly but we will stick fairly close to them. Heres roughly what I was thinking -

________________________________________________

Those are the best forces, suited to the location, that I could muster without spamming lord choices. That gives me -

249 Infantry,
22 Cav,
15 Ogres,
7 Warmachines,
2 Monsters.


They will have a big edge in firepower and will probably be on the defensive. 2 Monsters and 15 Ogres pack a nice punch though.

Sounds like a lot of fun.

Are you going to be using the Legendary Battles rules (the fantasy Apoc)?

From what I have briefly read, it doesn't seem as bad as Apoc, looked pretty good.

They aren't out yet over here are they? I thought they were with the next WD?. I think Fantasy is fine as is for big games, it already has the whole [+ so many characters/rare/special for as large a game as you want].

As bad as Apoc? I think Apoc is great fun.


The Skaven contingent will be something ike this [Dont have the book so i cant name all choices]

Grey Seer;
Screaming Bell.

Warlord;
Warpstone Amulet,
Bands of Power,
+ 2 Attack blade.

[Yeah, 2 Lords, thought the Warlord would be fun]

Assassin;
Weeping Blades.

Engineer;
All the Toys,
Storm Deamon.

20 Clanrats with FC;
20 Clanrats with FC;
Warpfire Thrower.

20 Stormvermin;
FC,
Banner of Hatred.
Ratling Gun.

10 Night Runners;
Throwing Stars.

4 Globadiers;
4 Jezzails;

Warp Lightning Cannon;

3 Rat Ogre Packs;

Approx 2000 Points

85 Infantry,
2 War Machines,
3 Ogres.

________________________________________________

Total Evil Force -

234 Infantry,
16 Ogres,
15 Cav,
3 Monsters,
2 Chariots,
2 War Machines.

__________________________________________________ __

Power and Dispel -

The Good force will get the 4 basic for Dwarfs -

Light Dispel; 12 [+ Many Scrolls]
Light Power; 11

Dark Dispel; 12[I cant remember if the bell gives +2 Power of Dispel!?!?]
Dark Power; 15 [+ Many Warpstone Tokens]
__________________________________________________ __

All in most things seem pretty even with a slight edge in Monsters and Cav to the Evil and Firepower to the Good force.

I meant in how it is a whole different ruleset - the fantasy one, the main difference is in monster hordes and gun batterys (essentially, you can take multiple units of the same type in one choice - so a gun battery of 5 Great Cannons as one special choice).

Ah right, sounds cool. I dont really have that much of all the special stuff anyway so the normal rules should do me fine for this battle. I'll probs do the fluff later tonight.

At the hobby shop I go to we're going to do one of these with everyone bringing as much as they can in the middle of April, using what were reffered to as "apocalypse rules." Would that be legendary battles rules, and is that to be in a white dwarf or a seperate book on it's own?

He said we were going to do an " apocylypse like battle" not using rules specialized in large battles. Its going to be 4,000 points of high elves vs 4,000 points of dark elves, as two anchor armies with the rest of us either going on good or evil side as little armies swarming around everyone else. Should be fun.

About the whole battle veq is going in, I think that good might have the edge. The advantadge that evil has can get shot to pieces and lost, and the good side can sit back with there advantadge and fire away. Hopefully they blow themselves up a lot!
