I agree, when I saw his build I thought I might be ok as long as I didn’t get the Urban map. and then that crazy first shot he made! Usualy several shots bounce off the E8 before it’s dammaged. I was only able to take two Pzr IVs with me.
Now it’s down to a couple M1 Garands and a sniper…
Is it just me or does it bother anybody else that the Expanded Rules cover is not stapled to the actual book? And on the back cover they included Greece as an ally but not Hungary as an Axis. Also the sign for Poland is not the same as that of the one on the Stat Card. Its the little things that drive me nuts!
I like to get into the big games (so far at 1800 points each, heavy on the armour and 700 when infantry heavy). I love the look of 3 D boards and build my own from styrofoam.
When you get that big, you need umpires who are really into the rules and who can keep the game on task. Each player really can’t effectively fight more that 15 pieces and fewer is better unless there are all the same model. Otherwise knowing their special abilities is tough to keep up with. I have seen all sorts of games lost by those who have not employed the abilities properly.
With multiple players have the teams send up their players in some sort of order and have a designated die roller. It keeps it faster. Also, no thinking when its your turn to move or assault. All that needs to be done ahead of time.
Have fun! Where are you, can we join in?
Let me know how 40K people take to this. I’ve a club on my campus (Trent U. in Peterborough Ontario)that I’m unsure of how to break into with this game.
