that KoS is really well done. I kinda want that crazy globe thing from Sigmar for some type of AT terrain.

Yeah - not too sure how I feel about the new Apocalypse.

For massed battles, I'm a bit biased towards Titanicus. I don't have the time, money, or space for 28mm at that scale.

fairly certain the point of it isn't to attract 28mm gamers vs allowing those heavily invested in 30k/40k to be able to use everything they already own at once ;)

For sure - its aimed at 40k players with large existing collections. What intrigues me is “all new ruleset”. Does this mean a heavy adaptation of 8th ed or completely new mechanics? My expectation is the former as surely it will have to piggy back off all the existing codexes?

Though if it was all new, and (the big IF) if it was a fair game, then i can see more people picking up 6mm models to play big games as an alternative to 28mm. People are already doing this to play regular 40k.

It is also the confirmation of why there will not be infantry etc in AT. Most apocalypse games were about the size of a EA army anyway!

I am also intrigued by what will be new about these rules! I always liked the idea of using Epic 40K (i.e. 3E Epic) mechanics for damage resolution (and possibly turns). Lots of the previous iterations slowly migrated across to standard 40K, so it will be interesting to see if they streamline things more or not.

Although I’ve been sorely tempted to use 6 mm miniatures for 40K (and only really stopped by the twin tyrannies of time and money poverty), I think it’s only a tiny portion of the people who’ll use the rules. 28 mm is just so much fun for modelling!

I do very much like the design choices they made with the Keeper. I think it’s one of the best depictions of Slaaneshi they’ve done. I did have a chuckle when I saw the first Keeper compared with the new one—how the artistic medium has changed!

wonder if it has similarities and to be a counter to the warpath mass combat rules?
