      I saw that over at BoLS, pretty crazy. Someone was saying it allows Suits to be troops? That would be pretty fun!

    woohoo im part of the less then 5%….now where’s my yacht. on a side note player cut out when you were talking about fateweaver mitigating chaos craziness. Did it actually end here or do I need to reload player >>.

      No, it didn’t upload for some reason. That was the end though, there was only a few more comments before we ended it.

    Reece, were you there when we did the 80,000pt game in Santa Maria where I took the Emperor Class titan? We quit apoc after that.

    5000-6000pt games with few to no super-heavies are a lot of fun, though.

      Pulsa rockets. I will never forget that nonsense!

      But yeah, we find Apoc games with lots of restrictions, 3-6k per side is a ton of fun! Bigger than that and it gets a bit unwieldy, IMO.

    Dude, I’m liking this new Apoc sooo much more than the previous edition. Aside from the Imperial and Eldar titans, the Destroyer weapons are much more tame, I took a little inventory of them here: http://www.thediceabide.com/2013/07/apocalypse-i-love-the-d-estroyer/

    Someone suggested giving extra strategic assets to the player with fewer Destroyer weapons, which might actually work out.

    I totally agree though, they need deals like last time, people spent so much money on random crap

      Nice inventory!

      And yeah, I agree. Those deals trigger a lot of impulse purchases. I know I bought some stuff I didn’t need!

    So just listened to the Reserves vs Psychic powers discusion. I disagree with your assesment of the rules, here is my argument.

    Psychic Powers: Blessings, Conjurations, and Maledictions are manifested at the start of the Psykers Movement Phase (BRB p.69)

    Reserve rolls: State at the start of Turn for the rolls (BRB p124)

    However, the BRB FAQ states

    Q: Blessings are manifested ‘at the start of the Psyker’s Movement
    phase’ – does this mean they happen simultaneously with Reserves
    rolls, Outflanking rolls etc and if so which is resolved first? (p68)
    A: They do occur simultaneously – as such, the player whose
    turn it is decides in what order these things occur as per
    page 9 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.

    So the rolls happen at the same time.

    However, moving the units onto the table does not happen at the same time as the rolls, you roll first, then move on reserves. TO me this suggests that psychic powers happens before reserves are deployed. Therefore you cannot cast powers on units that have arrived from reserve.
