For this intorductory game, I'm avoiding anything Str D or worse (Vortex included).

After we've gotten new players used to the flow of an Apocalypse game and into the mindset that every unit is expendable - then we can start bringing out the super-killy units. (Believe me when I say, I'm really jonesing to get my Titans on the table again). Smile

Mike told me last night he has had five people express interest in this. So looks like we'll have a full house.

Two weeks left to submit Army Lists.

So does that mean that there is no more room or that it will be very large? Cause i know that MentalKombat, a friend of mine/person on the fourms here want's to play and that i can generate at least enough points to make 2 full lists and have him play one...would that be ok?

It menas that there is definitely enough interest to make this event a go. Absolutely, make your friend a list - the more the merrier.

I'll be heading down to Binghamton tomorrow to pick up the Apoc table. For those of you who are interested but haven't taken a peak at my album yet - here's a link to see the table at the 2010 DaBoyZ GT.
