I don't understand the question. 2k+ point characters?

If you're referring to characters that can normally only be fielded in lists of 2000 points or greater, yes, you can. The only restrictions on Apocalypse armies are that the units must be internally consistent (i.e., no 20 man terminator squads,) and you must remember that the game is for fun. So.. A surprise army made up of six Mephistons, while legal, goes a bit against the spirit.

According to the new Codex Abaddon can be fielded in any army, he no longer requires a 2000 point list to play.

I'm thinking of trying just 1275 of HQ.

That would be a horrible idea.

But I wouldn't try to stop you :wink:

Are rules printed in White Dwarf legal for Apocalypse?

What rules?

The Blood Angels are a legal codex, but there are a few other things in older White Dwarf mags that are outdated and no longer valid, what rules are you referring to?

Cypher and his Fallen Angels. The rules are definitely old but I haven't seen anything yet saying they can't be used. Cypher is pretty weak as a character but it would make our game a lot fluffier with two Dark Angel players seeking the head of the Arch-Heretic who stole their Primarch's blade :twisted:

At least when he got mobbed in close combat he was actually able to take out 3 Orcs with his 3 attacks.

But yea, that sucked hard.
