Apocalypse game played today

Today (27-08-2011), I played in a two-part 40k Apocalypse battle, hosted at Kingdom of Adventure, Kirkcaldy.

The organisers were John and Paul Laurie (aka Kraggi and Dragkon), with individual players fielding about 2 - 2.5k each. The 'goodies' side was comprised of mainly Imperial Space Marines, some Imperial Guard and some Chaos Space Marines (who had seen the 'good' side). I was on the 'baddies' side, with Chaos, Tyranids, Orks and Dark Eldar.

Play was quicker in the second half, as there were probably less players/ models and less disruptions.
