Warhammer 40k, Any players?
« on: September 29, 2015, 11:39:58 »
Hey guys,

I just saw this board and only saw one old post about 40k, but I think it was about the Space Marine videogame.

Does anyone here play 40k at all? If so, what are your armies, formations, interests etc? I am always looking for new people to have a round with as well as talk about it!

Let me know!

Been playing since 2nd edition was new.  Just paint and model now though.

I never understood the painting. Why can't they just come pre-painted? I told my buddy who was big into it that I'd play him, but that my army consisted entirely of pieces of paper with the names of my units written on them. He kicked me out of his room.

LOL. This post has officially made my day.

Oh man, that is funny. In all seriousness, I remember proxying some small-scale action figures as Dreadnoughts for a small points boost, not a proud moment for me as a kid....

What armies do you guys collect/play?

I used to play a while ago. I was debating on getting a army up and running again but so much has changed. Last time I played there was no planes, and rending had just become part of the game (things like rending claws on Tyranids and your assault cannons became the best weapons in the game as you had 4 shots and if you rolled a 6 it was virtually a instant kill).

If I do get a army up and running it will be my Imperial Guard, I also have a Ravenwing army kicking around somewhere but it is apparently very outdated (as now there is not much point in having a pure Ravenwing army anymore).

That's why it is such a great thing! I just got back into it from roughly an 8 year hiatus and it is so much fun. Now I have amassed a fairly sizeable Dark Angels army and am making some custom boards and terrain. I love the creativity I get to put into it because frankly, I am not an artistic guy with anything else.

Also, battling it out with some buddies and beers is a great way to waste an evening or a day.

I have seen this game from time to time, and it makes as much sense as recreating the battle of the Somme with nuclear weapons while running around in tie dyed t-shirts.

Still, people seem to enjoy it, so who am I to complain?
Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

I play Tau and Tyranids, both very fun, for me table top games are a social game. Go have beers with friends, play a game or two, chat and make a day of it, versus video games which just make my head hurt after about an hour
