Good idea!

BTW. Regarding the rating issue: personally, I feel we'd be safer with Extreme. Even disregarding Chaos Gods, the whole setting seems very brutal to me. I mean, chainswords? Can you even describe effects of chainswords without going Extreme?

Quite easily. Commissar Caine uses a chainsword paired with a laspistol. Aside from running them through, lopping off limbs and heads and occasional sprays of blood, ichor or viscera, there's nothing particular gory in the writing.

I must admit that my mental images of chainsword combat are... much more gory, then.

No, I will admit that the mental imagery is much more... intense. Not to mention the rather... explosive results of a bolt pistol or bolter.

So I guess I expressed interest a bit late then. Ceste la ve.

I'll keep an eye out for things. I don't have a problem GMing. I just wanted to learn more about the game system itself before stepping up for that particular job. I've played WH40 tabletop wargames now for nearly a decade. (Back when the Blood Angels Rhino Rush was still legal and an absolute nightmare if you didn't have heavy weapons), so I'm rather well versed on the universe.

Ack.  Wish you'd seen this sooner, then, Pockets.

So, we'll put it up in extreme.  Our characters come from different inquisitors and are assembled into this specific group. 

Starting level?

Well I had put in, but TheGlyphstone didn't include me in his count. So wasn't sure if I was too late or what.

The can describe the effects of weapons in as much or little graphic detail as you like. That's down to the writer.

Maybe he just missed you? Don't give up yet :)
