So, we going to try and top the awesomeness that was past megabattle?  We could surpass the other megabattle as some of us have demonstrated the ability to field past 12k all by ourselves.

I would be ok with fielding enough to break the 100k points mark.  ;)

ive solved that problem by creating alternatives that cost 1/1000 of the original.

examples:
ork thunderhawk for less than 1.00
chaos reaver titan for free
chaos warhound titan for free
ordinatus armageddon for free
ork hydra tank for free

come on people, get thinking, find some spare parts and make some cool stuff and you can be like grandpa rich and I.

Well I am working on 3k for Guard, hopefully chaos guard (inq with chaos termy armor and the like).  On top of that I will have my 3k of marines so I got 6k of stuff.  Plus I want to scratch build a shadowsword and maybe buy a vulture/flyer

Play many games, Eric.  Play Apocalypse, play 2000, play 1500.  Use everything in that list multiple times in multiple settings and get a feel for how everything works alone and how it can be supported.  When you are playing a game of such grand scale, you need to be able to look at each unit and instantly realize what it can do with that you're given in a turn.  The size hasn't been determined yet (I'd like 4-5k per player... or per me), but until then use everything you've got as you've been doing and keep at it.

The Guard are ready, and being reenforced as we speak. Of course there is some complaining from the ranks it took  a few more months to finish cleaning the chaos slime and puppy hairs out of our tracks from the last battle...

Dude that's trash.  Utter and total trash.  12k of Termies should be banned without a doubt....unless they're rainbow league termies.

Steve you gonna bring the 'hawk again?  That thing brought serious carnage.
