Warhammer 40K (in Off-topic)

Any other 40K players on CB?

Excited by the new 'Nid 'Dex? Salivating at the rumours from the upcoming Blood Angel 'Dex? Wailing at the unmistakable Codex Creep entering 5th Edition?

Or just want to jaw about your personal army.

This is the thread for you!

Me, I'm an unabashed Grey Knight player. Who has reluctantly hung up the DH Codex (and am currently havign fun wiht the new SW one!) until we actually get the update we require.

Or how about people exited about the WH40k movie in production:


Purge the alien!

Did you catch the fan film Damnation? It was finally released!

I've not had a chance to sit down and watch it yet. :(

I collect Eldar, well I say I collect eldar, I have a half painted Banshee and all the models for a proper sized army waiting to be put together and painted :)

run an ebay shop focusing lot on GW top stuff :)

Now I find this out! ;)

At the moment I only play with two other mates. We don't go to any game stores or anything like that (And my painting sucks! Don't really enjoyt that side any more, I used to when I was a kid though!).

Eldar/Daemons and Marines/Necrons.

as someone who has never played 40k, what is the appeal of the figurines? Do you actually use them to play the game, or is it simply the joy of collecting and painting them?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 26 2010 1:11 PM EST

You use them. ;)

There are those drawn to the hobby who just like to collect (and get others to Paint for them), those who like the Modelling and painting side, and those who like the Tabeltop gaming.

And all of the above of course! ;)

I never played 40k myself, but watched a few people play it.. seems kinda expensive to play. But I did play this game called Space Hulk, made by Games Workshop, it's a really fun game and based on Warhammer 40k.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 26 2010 1:16 PM EST

Oh it can get very expensive...

GW is unfortunately all about the money. And only makes rules to justify selling more models. :(

Space hulk is cool, and you can use the Terminators/Genestealers in it and 40K.

My GF just recently bought me the battle for skull pass Warhammer fantasy box set thing. Still painting them, haven't played yet, but I will likely start getting into warhammer 40k in the near future :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 26 2010 1:36 PM EST

From what I understand, Fantasy is nearly a totally different game to 40K. And I much prefer 40K. ;)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- January 26 2010 1:44 PM EST

Yeah apples and oranges, I've been told the differences from a friend who plays both, my gf likes fantasy and I'm more into 40k (I played the computer games) so I will likely play both :)

Adding to the conversation, CHOAS!!!!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 26 2010 2:12 PM EST

Chaos (while becoming more of a 'renegade Marine' list rather than a Chaos Legion list) is still on of the stronger 'Dexes.

Brilliant Troop Choices, Daemon Princes, and Obliterators! ;)

Mythology January 26 2010 2:50 PM EST

Chaos space marines have to be the best basic troop choices going.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 26 2010 3:38 PM EST


But Logan backed Wolfguard aren't too shabby either!

I'm salivating over the rumours of the Blood Angel Exalted Assault Squad, and the Tantalus Lander. ;)

Well, maybe the best Troop choice has to currently go to the Tervigon. Monstrous Creature Troop FTW? ;)
