I have been asked by my gaming group to put together a large 40k game, to be held over a weekend at a local pub (which handily I work in)
So far, i've put together a rough idea of the game scenario (most of it will be revealed on the day)
I just wanted to ask everyone if they had any hints or tips for me for running a LARGE apocalypse game, any on board (scenarios/special rules etc), and off board (hosting a large game) suggestions will be greatly appreciated
so far I have outlined:
The Battle of Borlingrav is a large scale game of warhammer 40,000 which will take place on the ******* of june at the ************** pub in ******** (dates and location yet to be confirmed)
A huge board will be liberally spread with scenery, depicting a large scale invasion of Borlingrav.
A beach-head assault against fortified and well dug in defenders, an airborne assault on a spaceport/airfield and the last stand of the Borlingrav palace... amongst others. Each objective held will have a "real time" effect on other parts of the board, be prepared to take heavy casualties!
game special rules will be revealed on the day, a booklet will be supplied to each participant detailing their armies' objectives for the mission, and what dastardly tricks they have up their sleeves.
The event will be over 2 days, starting between 11 and 12 saturday afternoon, and continuing until late (as late as we can stand :D). The board will remain set-up overnight, and the game will come to a finish at around 4/5 sunday
You will not need to be around the whole day, simply hand control of your forces to a friend by passing on your booklet detailing your plans - but be carefull not to let your opponents see!
The pub will be open for business as usual, some casual gaming and access to drinks spells fun in my books. Hopefully I will wrangle up some food too!
Along with your RSVP, please state your affiliation (Imperial, Forces of Disorder, Neutral) which you intend to play, how many points you can muster - to the nearest 250points (for example I can muster 3022points - 3000points for simplicity) and if you have any other armies which you can bring along to aid your own, or the opposing side, list them also.
