Apocalypse thread?

>This model can be used by every Warhammer 40,000 player in games of Apocalypse.

We've never had any problems with table space. Just slap enough to them together in shapes that allow players to reach over to various areas (or fill areas you can't reach with impassable terrain). And you get plenty of space when you you the length of the table to your advantage. We had one table which was, I believe, 10m in length and both armies started from the ends. it got wider in the middle, which made a good central combat zone with support units like artillery and shit being able to sit back while actual combat units could move in towards the center to take hold of the objectives, which also gave their holder stratagems, like orbital strikes and shit.

I think Hot-shot Lasguns went back to hellguns in 3rd edition, so if it is from 3rd edition for later it might have been after IG got their 5th edition codex changing Hellguns back to Hot-shot lasguns.

To put it simply as far as HSLG/Hellgun name goes
No such thing existed in RT to my knowledge, storm troopers got them in the 2nd Edition codex, they went back to hellguns in the 3rd edition codex, and went back to hot-shot lasguns in the 5th edition codex.

So what did they just play a bunch of 3000 point battles right next to each other? So cool, I mean it really feels like some massive battle with none of the armies effecting anything next to them. Seriously, it looks like the shitty 100,000 point battles miniwargaming did. So epic, a long line of tables where nothing actually effects anything next to it.

Apocalypse can be done well, forming two long lines of super heavies (like the cool guy with those baneblades) and firing at each other at point blank range isn't one of them. Do something like what the anons in this thread suggested, a long battlefield that gets wider towards the middle motivating both sides to advance so they are less clustered and focusing the battle in the middle.

Still making bogus assumptions to try and back up your 'Bad-Wrong-Fun' arguments? Sorry, but still wrong. The front row of tables in the foreground and the 2nd row in the background not only exchanged fire, but units could and did cross over.

I wonder if anyone's ever tried to make a T28 style shadowsword or something from the baneblade. Just mount the gun on the demolisher cannon mount, leave the turret off and maybe trim down the top of the hull a bit.

Nothing wrong with the basic idea, it's just that the execution here ain't what it should be. Re-structure the chassis around not supporting a full cannon-armed tower, and redesign the missile launcher to be as boxy as the rest of the Baneblade. That could end up working.

Or, you know, make the baneblade more techy. My IG is more high-tech than WW1-2, with smooth and/or curved surfaces, so reworking the baneblade to a less riveted metal box shouldn't be hard. I already got a conversion piece that centers the turret, so the launcher will be sitting smack center.

He doesn't need to post pics you just need to lurk more and find better scratch built titans.

The problems plaguing that particular scratch build are common to a lot of titans. Poorly proportioned/designed face, being able to obviously tell what parts he used to make the model (those round shoulders).

I assumed it was in line with the ship because it was painted in the same sort of blurry, low-detail style as the ship, as if to represent distance.

Never said a damn thing about practical or impractical. Just that people suddenly demand Titans to be massive like in the old artwork. I'd consider plenty of that stuff as atmosphere building, rather than picture-realistic depictions. Much like Blance's pieces, which some hate for not being 100% accurate depictions of specific things from the world.

If we take the size of titans as given from the art, then we have to take everything else, right? Like hundreds of square kilometers of battleground just littered with dudes all over in one big moshpit, vehicles rolling over everyone with little regard for anything, tanks of unknown pattern, etc.

Look at this. Where are all those people coming from? Are they moving over a really steep hill? Why is no one minding the terribly steep ground and look like they're all moving forwards, even when they're all stacked on top of each other like a literal human wave? You just look at it, and you can pick the atmosphere, the smoke and battle and little regard for anything else (how much do you even see the ground in that, it's all guns and dudes and skulls and dust), but if you really start going over it anally, you can bitch about this and that till the cows come home.

Maybe instead of all these things, we should look into old fluff on titans. Are their size mentioned anywhere?

>> No.25843220

>>25842860
Well, don't forget, you're also looking up, so the top of it is way further away than its feet. And at least I can make way more detailed and sharper lines on the titan than on the ship. You can't even make out any guns on that ship and I'm pretty sure even a troop lander would carry more arsenal on it for close defense than any titan could muster on its own.

By my quick calculations, from the ground to the top of the parapet on the back, it's around 57m (assuming the dude at its feet was 2m tall). Doesn't seem that impossible to me. I'm thinking they'd set the height to somewhere permanent, as those spires can be replaced by gun emplacements and shit, lowering the height and making different Imperators have different height. So setting the "official height" on like the parapet or the eye level of the titan, would make more sense.

Still not as big as in some of the artwork (where there's tiny specks fighting on the toes of the feet), but still big enough to fill in the same purpose of having two churches for legs and a fortress on the back. I'm sure there's plenty of room there for a few companies of soldiers.
