My FLGS is starting a 40k campaign, aimed more towards the casual / friendly game style than the competative, so I'm intending to take part in that.

Right now I'm trying to justify buy the Battle of Calth box set for all those lovely 30k plastic minis :)

Wait until they go on sale to make room for the line of Warhammer 40K: Great Crusade miniatures and rulebooks. Then the Warhammer: Dark Age of Technology speciality line. Then they'll produce Warhammer 2K: Modern Soldiers, and Warhammer -1K: Adventures of the Emperor.

We already have the Great Crusade rules. That's what the Black Libraries Horus Heresy series are :)

And the fact they're so popular is what is prompting the plastic minis and the Battle for Calth.

Okay, time for some thread necromancy! :)

So, how's it going for you guys, 40K-wise? Any interesting buys, miniatures painted etc.?

I haven't painted anything in the last few months :( Somehow, I can't find the time for it... Also, my inability to find a good colour scheme for my Wyches annoyed me and made me put all of this away...

BTW. I visited the GW shop yesterday and I noticed something I had feared months ago: the Sororitas supplies *are* depleting. :( Currently, you can't buy Immolators anymore - they are all gone. I suspect that other Sororitas models will disappear some time in the future, so... there's no way I'm going to own a big army of them.

The other sad thing is that I'm beginning to fear that I just don't have enough for this hobby. I *would* have, if I wasn't also involved in RPing, but... I am. And RPG books are awfully expensive these days, too. For instance, I plan on buying two of FFG's Star Wars games - and I'll be spending about $100 just on the core rulebooks. I also got sucked into Mage: the Awakening - and there's a metric ton of sourcebooks for this game I'd like to buy, too... Which would be great, as I love buying stuff. But not when I'm earning $325 dollars a month...

Crap!

Keep in mind, M:Aw is heading into second edition soon, so i would just wait and buy those books when they come out instead of the dozens of 1e books. Odds are little if anything from those books will keep working.

Has there been any real focus on worldbuilding and things outside of the Grimdark and andless war between the Imperium and the heretics, demons and aliens?

I kind of want to know what Guardsmen do for fun...aside from dancing the Conga :P

My FLGS has started a map based 40k campaign. There's about a dozen of us playing on a 5 system world. My Night Lords won their first game against Tau, through the age old tactics of throwing hordes of bullet sponge cultists in front of the Tau gunline, while the Raptors grabbed the objective and ran like hell  >:) The Tau also learned that a static gun line has one rather large flaw when the Chaos lord and his retinue arrive on one flank and a claw of bikes arrive on the other .. at the same time  >:)

Next game will be this coming weekend, another Tau player who has a Spaceport that I want.

Rather alot actually, its a very rich and interesting setting.

Case in points; theres hundreds of novels (I have several hundred myself) and even more e-shorts, novellas, and other sundry e-reading materials, dozens of fluffbooks (manuals and documents written in-setting style), five different RPG lines, two extremely large a dedicated wikis, a TvTropes page so huge they broke the parser and had to chop it up onto different pages, like three videogames currently in development, and atleased three times that already released. Etc.

If you are interested in the forthright and dedicated men and women of the Imperial Guard, i would point you to the tales of the legendary Commissar Caiphas Cain; Hero Of the Imperium, as he valiantly strides forth to face the myriad foes of humanity with vim and vigour!

Or the tragic tales of Gaunt's Ghosts; the Tanith First And Only.

You could also buy some minis and paint. Then, you could find someone to play with... ;)
