Megabattle Idea?

Post  nathanr on Thu Nov 29, 2012 3:40 pm

I think we have a lot of Orc and Goblin armies out there, do we have enough to have a megabattle where one side was comprised solely of orcs and goblins? I think it would be fun to try something like that, I've always been interested in the Waaaagh phenomenon in the warhammer world, sort of like a biblical-scale plague of angry green monsters.

How many greenskin armies do we have here? What would they face? Dwarfs? Empire? Elves? Just throwing an idea out there, I've enjoyed the megabattles that we have had in the past but I'd like to see something a little more thematic than just forces of destruction vs forces of good. If there is enough interest I will try and put something together, I'll try to plan far enough ahead of time that we can hopefully put together something really special with painted armies and special terrain. I'm talking maybe several months of preparation.

Myself, Andre and Scotts collection are about it I think. Maybe some from MooseJaw?

Darren has O&G.

I know at least Dom, myself and Nathan have Wood Elves... Once I get my Tomb Kings painted up, I think we might have 3 or 4 armies of that too...

I have somewhere in the 5000pt range depending on special characters (I like to use Skarsnik and Grimgor). I would be in but the weekend would have to line up with work. Does Stash have his trolls

I wasn't planning it anytime soon, maybe to start the next league in march or so. I have some greenskins that could probably be constructed into a sizable force too but they need some work.

The Apothecary, has a 2500 point all squig army. It's kicked my face in a couple times. He'd totally join in.

This sounds awesome - let's do it as soon as possible.

What sort of table configuration would you guys like to see on this? One long table is definitely easiest but it can leave some people stranded with nobody to fight while other shapes lead to congestion and sometimes complicated rules. I'd like to try and make some cool terrain for this so some scenario ideas would be welcome too.

I haven't confirmed a date yet for this but I'm thinking the first or second weekend in March could work well (so lots of time to paint up some greenskins). I'm thinking everyone who wants to participate can bring a legal 1000 point army and then 500 or so points of extra stuff since a 1000 point army doesn't lend itself to the big fun monsters and characters that these events are all about. I'll come up with some more definite rules in the coming months.

By that time I will be able to do Tomb Kings or Wood Elves for an opposition army.

I think this is a great idea, if lizardmen fit the defender theme I'll bring an opposing green horde.

That sounds like a great idea. I've got 5 or 6000 points of Orcs I could bring up from the city that rhymes with FUN.

I know a guy that knows a guy that can fix your problem.

Anyways, sound like a good idea as I'll be in Saskatoon the weekend before and after the probable Feb 9 gamesday. Teach her a lesson and have it at your house. Very Happy

I'm in for either a tourny (Does it have to be 1500?) or the Mega-Goblin-Kill-day.

You guys can use my shit if you want. It might point out at 5Kish all painted if you use the special characters.

I definitely want to do the mega battle thing. I feel your pain Andre, my wife has a grudging acceptance of warhammer at the best of times, and a hate that burns with the fires of a thousand suns at the worst!

This Saturday as we are all painting I think that we'll have a good opportunity to plan some events and figure out ways to grow the league.

Ok say Saturday February 23rd we are going to try an orc and goblin mega awesome army against some fancy falutin' elvish army. Sign up here as to what side you would prefer to be on. I will nominate a couple captains to oversee general army build lists and help out with new players. If you don't have models but want to participate sign up as we should have extra models on each side to use. Each individual will be responsible for a 1200pt brigade using his own general and bsb for rerolls and leadership (if you choose) and legal list following normal rules but each captain will also act as overgeneral that any unit on his side may use inspiring presence and bsb roll(still only one reroll not one per bsb). I will lay out more details and scenario later. As this is a 'fun' event any and all ideas for gameplay are welcome and newbies this is a great opportunity for a unique gaming experience so sign up!
