Apocalypse now

So me and a friend decided to play a game of Apocalypse: 3500 vs 3500.
As you will notice..the tyranids have 2 colourschemes. That is because about 1/3 of the tyranids were borrowed.
As for assets: Chaos took Orbital bombardment (big pieplate pain) and I took Camouflage (5+ coversave in first turn).

Liked this pic.
awesome sight

Looking through the Apocalypse book we saw a photo of a bunch of guys sitting down around a battlefield not paying any attention to the game, but just randomly doing stuff and looking oh so happy. We decided to replicate: happy gamer of the month.

How a tyrant should nót work: my tyrants (1 shown on pic) probably had blunt claws..cause they couldn't destroy a paperhouse if it was presented to them on a platter.
claws are flimsy
The terminators were dying faaaar to slowly.

How not to use a carnifex 101: get a shooty fex up close with Kharn and his lads.

Pie-plate pain: the linebreaker vindicators tried and tried but couldn't bring a building down.

All in all it wás quite a close game but I lost 2-3 objectives because one sq got just below half strength. Even though my tyrants acted like sweet was a fun game. The next day we played a re-match where the dicegods decided to curse me. Tyrants hit even worse, zoanthropes couldn't hit anything and of course I probably made the necessary mistakes. The orbital bombardment asset worked nicely though. The enemy asset did too though...taking out 'half' of my Raveners before we even got started.
