I was helping my parents move today and I came across my old 40K related items, including the above games. Now I only played them a few times, but I have fond memories of them especially the boards. Does anyone else recall them? have any stories about them? I plan to take them into my LFGS next week and have a game. Any hints,tips in getting the best out of them?

WD155 had a strategy article for the Battle for Armageddon game.

Dunno, only ever played Tyranid Attack, but that was fab.

That was back when GW expected people to play nicely, and the games were not competitive.

I had Doom of the Eldar when I was a kid, that game was confusing back then. Good fun though.

I bought Battle for Armageddon earlier this year on ebay. Went down great when I took it along to the club.
Having some trouble finding the expansion though.

I had a few battles during eye of terror whit my ulthwe(previous edition mind u)vs the then spiffy new tau of my mate . I only ever beat them once .Seeing the 6 man seercouncil take out 70 percent off the opposing force havving lost almost my entire army to their shooting the turns before i advanced my council set on exacting a meager measure of revenge sure they would die a honorable death .They didn't take a single wound while soaking all fire the enimy had at his disposal(including several surviving suits and a hammerhead ) for 2 turns losing 1 wound and a warlock the 3d it was surreal but amusing(to see once) .(I started collecting chaos after this battle )God imm so happy whit my Elder-codex now.Using the models and rules i hag tau was hard to say the least. Hehehe The first game vs tau using the new dex ...well now that was a cool battle start to end =) d back then fightin

I'd really like to get my hands on some if not all of these games again, and link them in with 40K and/or Epic Armageddon battles
