The new version of 40K seems to have really brought many back to the fold which is rather nice. I still have to give the new rules a run as I can see some nice benefits. But seeing as 4th and 5th editions were my last real foray I am sure that the new rules will seem more, well, New than old 40K this of course is no negative it is just another game that I will have to learn.
Club nights have had a few turn up and thus 2 tables of 40k and 5 of us playing Conan. The kickstarter we missed out on but one lucky club member bought the whole kit and caboodle (main boxed game and a swag of other sets) at a second hand stall for the princely sum of $120.00 Australian, I am sure that this is 50% of what it would cost. We had a go and like what happened in Heroquest all those years ago our rampant adventuring types went off on their own and only came back together as a team in turn 4 of 8 turns. Thus we lost to the gamesmaster. But we don't care as it was a blast. Nice minis too. I bought into the Conan RPG and am looking at a cross over but we will have to wait and see.
|Space Wolves vs Necrons, I still have a soft spot for the Necrons and gee some of the new models are very atmospheric.|
|When they turn up behind you and you are facing the wrong direction it is down hill from there.|
|Once upon a time this was asking for a template, alas no templates anymore, this will take some getting used to.|
|Orks vs Korne Orks lost and it looked like a good game.|
|Cool ork bomba that was purchased from the UK, love how the Orks still have the most unlikely of machinery of war.|
|Game about to begin, with Picts and Giant snakes about to leap out and snot us.|
Next night is Tuesday the 24th see you all there.
