Really like playing huge battles. I have over 15,000 points of Space Marines, Deamonhunters and Imperial Guard to use together.

Finally a throw back to the old days of 40K, a nod to Rogue Trader Era gamers if you will. You can play huge battles, of 3000 points or more and field your entire armies, including outdated models and the like. Titan's, Superheavy Tanks etc. Whats not to like? The manual is a gem of a book, with great art, concise easy to read rules and simple yet effective data sheets for the various battle formations etc.

Superheavies are AWESOME!!! Titans and Baneblades & Macharius tanks Oh MY!~

Biiig games of 40K. Rated lower than the base game because of some balance issues and the increased time requirements.

I like idea of Apoc, but I've never had the time or opportunity.
Rating based on reading the book.

An amazing book -- really required for any serious 40k collector. Not sure how many games of this scope I'll play, but I do admire the product and the top notch presentation.

Hardbound book expanding warhammer 40k 4th edition. Apocalypse focuses on large (3000+ points per side) games in a casual setting. The book strives to emphasize fun over competition. There are a large number of models released to support the book, including a plastic Baneblade which was previously only available in resin. This is the largest plastic kit released by GW to date.

The content is solid, but a bit disappointing for a GW product. There are b+w photo pages which is totally uncharacteristic for GW which usually has lavish photography. Eye candy is GW's stock and trade. The book has some wonderful, full color, multi-page pullouts that are starkly contrasted by the presence of b+w photo plates.

The game concept is good - get together with mates for some 40k and some laughs. However, playing Apocalypse in pick-up games, like you would for a standard 40k game should be done with trepidation. The potential to min-max/abuse army-lists is taken to new levels in this book. Sounds terrible right? Not so. If you use the product as intended, among friends, you are in for a good game. If you find yourself in a pickup game with Timmy-the-power gamer you are in for 3-6 hours of hell-on-earth. Jervis makes an interesting point that social contracts will prevent this. His premise is that a regular game group essential enters into a social compact with unspoken (or spoken) rules that underline what is and isn't acceptable in the game.

5.27.08 edit - supplement/expansion rate: 7
