Annual Megabattle thread of dooom.

October's almost over.  I think the time to talk trash (and organize) the annual megabattle may be upon us.

Since I am not sure what you play I have no idea if I am opposing you.

To a near certainty, Battleground is about to acquire a 8-10,000 sq. ft. facility/store in Everett (just north of Boston). We are not moving our current store; this will be a second location.

I mention it here in this thread because I'd like to see how the local community would feel about having the annual megabattle there so that we are not crowded into our Abington location. Hosting the event at the Everett store would allow us for a table of any length and configuration we desire. The space is HUGE. For some frame of reference, it's about 6 or 7 times the size of Battleground, Abington.

The new location also has it's own parking lot, so you won't have to worry about street or meter parking. It takes about 35 minutes to get there from Abington.

Thoughts?

Lee, I'll drive you up.  ;)

I'm game for what ever is easier.  If this place is so big, I hope there is a shrine to Steve D (as there should be).

Also congratulations on the expansion!

it would be sweet not to stand in a packed room full of smelly guys. the b.o. smell of nurgle that permeates from the chaos side as they sweat it out knowing they are going to lose becomes unbearable as the day progesses. it would be awesome to have a place to stand that isn't right next to those degenerates. everett sounds good

Congratulations on the new 10-20!!
 
   Do you need any terrain/work done for the Megabattle?  Let me know how I can help?

   Is there going to be a Battlefleet Gothic component th the Megabattle?

I would like to ask any players involved in the mega battles just a quick question?

How many of the order players armies are usually smashed to little gooey bits by the end of the melee?  I mean sure you guys one the day based on objectives.... But much like the nerd with a 4.0, yes you got an A on the last test but ya still went home with your undies firmly wedged in a place that would take some form of miner's tools to dig out.


Ha! (insert emoticon of a obnoxious smiley face)  :p   (mission accomplished)

Everett is more convenient for me...

How many points does each person bring for megabattle? ...regular force-org chart? ...apocalypse formations?

You mean the 4000 points of terminators and baneblade I still had standing at the end of last year? I think i may have bits of ork in the chainfists, or some dark eldar still stuck to the lightning claws....no, i dont see any bits of space wolf. sorry Kev, ;D
