Ok, so are we doing 'old style' scoring units or 5th ed style? I'm a little more partial with 'old style', but I would like to know so I can figure out which list I'm bringing. :)

I dunno what "old style" is, seeing as I started with 5th edition, but since I'll be learning Apoc tomorrow anyways, I don't care either way :wink:

I say it takes troops to hold in the new style so we should do it that way

Apocalypse Reloaded mentions that it's a grey area and should be discussed pregame, and I tend to agree. I don't want to rules lawyer in someone else's game, so I'll just say that both 4th edition and 5th edition scoring methods have their merits in Apocalypse, being as it's sort of its own beast.

Precisely why I asked the question. :D

Rheibaen, 'old style' was that any squad (above half?), mobile heavy support, etc etc could hold objectives. ICs could not though. I'm a little fuzzy on it all, but we do need to nail down which we are using.

I should hope no later than noon

I too had a blast! Well done both of you for pulling out all the tricks including that Vital Objective Strategem. You had a very full hat! :)

Yeah, definitely a great game. I'm just glad that you guys failed to phase me out, even though Tony was trying his hardest 8)
