Hm. Do you have some rules ready for that?

BTW. Have you guys seen a movie called Battle: Los Angeles? It's a modern, very gritty take on an alien invasion scenario. I'd say it can serve as a WH40K inspiration - in the movie the human militaries of the world have to fight a surprise defense war against a completely unknown enemy who comes out of nowhere. Just like during a Chaos or Xenos attack...

That movie is how I pictured a battle with the TAU going. :P but that's just me.

Not fully realised, no. A few ideas at this stage. I wanted to see if anyone was interested in kicking it around and seeing if we could hammer a set of rules out.

Right now I seem to have come down with a cold though, and I know I'm not going to be at my most creative til it runs its course and I stop feeling bleh all the time.

I am seeing this as captions for cat pictures.  Specifically, kittens trying to be very fierce and looking cute instead.

Just found this thread. It's cool. I like 40k, and still have the White Dwarf where Rogue Trader made its debut. The lore has come a long way since then, but while so much has changed I do appreciate that the overall atmosphere of the setting has remained constant (forget the power of technology, science and common humanity. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for there is no peace amongst the stars," - White Dwarf issue 93, September 1987)  I think the setting can be taken seriously although it can also be very funny too. It has a very strong sense of satire, and the 'silly' side of it is more a product of a certain self-awareness than a consequence of the narrative. I never got into 40k for the tabletop in the 40mm scale although I used to play Epic, and later Battlefleet Gothic (in addition to Fantasy) which were both great, and incidentally less expensive than the standard game. Especially battlefleet Gothic.

I've dabbled in some of the 40k RPGs but for role-playing and story telling I have always favoured the fantasy setting especially the 2nd edition of WFRP, minus Storm of Chaos for the most part. Although 40k can be fun as well I think individuals can easily get lost in the setting. As that very first white dwarf issue said, 'But the universe is a big place and, whatever happens, you will not be missed...'

So, now that the thread is resurrected... how are your WH40K projects going, guys?

Personally, I haven't painted anything for about a year... oh my God, it's been that long? Somehow, other things came along and I focused on them. Overall, my big realization in these last months is that I don't have time for all of my hobbies... in fact, I seem not to have time for almost any of them.  :-\

Also, I realized I may be just too meticulous for this army-building business. I mean, I can't help spending hours painting a single mini. I want each of them to be nice and unique! Hence, painting an army is very slow for me...

And, of course, I also realized that I don't have enough money...

Overall, this game was a major heartbreak for me in these last few months...

I'm still working away on my Night Lords, slowly, but making some progress at least. I prefer to make my models unique via the conversions, rather than the paint scheme.

I've got a newbie oriented tournament tomorrow, there's a raffle dependent on having your army painted at least three colors, so I may be in a painting frenzy tonight. I'll share pictures soon.

Space Wolves, of course! Three rounds, 850 the first, 1050 the second, 1250 the last. Here are the rules: http://flatlandgamestore.com/event/warhammer-40k-dayscolation-event/

Lemme try to remember my lists off the top of my head... First round I'm running 2 Grey Hunter squads, Bjorn the Fell-Handed, Wulfen and some Long Fangs. Second round I'm adding a Wolf Lord, another Long Fang in the previous unit, and a drop pod for Bjorn. Last round I'm adding Murderfang and another Wulfen for the previous unit.

Not a ton of models, which has been my downfall in the past, but eventually I'm probably going to run less dreads and more troops, and probably some Thunderwolf Cavalry. I've been playing for about 3 months and am still getting the hang of all this.

Just took a quick look at your list, and with your two Dreadnoughts, will you be putting them in Drop Pods?

As someone who has faced them, Thunderwolves annoy the hell out of me. Thunderhammer and stormshield on something with multiple wounds that you can't instant kill. Best you can do is tar pit it with something cheap and worthless.

Out of curiosity: how many models is 850? How many is 1250?

Depends on the army you're playing, and the units you take.
