seeing the new chaos models and reading the rules i began to ponder about playin epic. but one question remains.....what is the usual game size for epic, for example, 1500 points for 40k/2000 for fantasy, this would really help me
many thanks my fellow warseers

3000 is that standard tourny format. It makes for a good game with players really having to think about what they take in their armies.

Course, BIG battles are fun too, but mainly due to the absolute carnage rather than the tactical ins and outs.

The armies are balanced for 2000-5000 point battles with the Turnament Game scenario in the rule book (6.1.1. in the rulebook).

It also seems that tournaments in England can use 2700 points as well, but as posted above lists are designed to be balanced with 2000 - 5000 points.

You can easily do starter games at about 1200-1500pts.

But as has been said, you get a good force out of ~2500.

Agreed. 2700 to 5000 is the range for a tournament game on a 4'x6' table. Anything less than that and the dice variance aka 'luck factor' can take a big swing at your game. Anything more and things become a bit crowded.
