PostSubject: Digging out my box of 40K goodies from ages past.   Sun May 17, 2009 7:47 pm

In case you haven't read my introductory post, here's the short. I used to play Rogue Trader rules way back when then quit. I bought some 40K stuff in the early 2000's that I think were from 3rd edition. (I can't find any reference to the edition of the rule book I got with them) But I never played once I bought all that, and I hardly painted or built any of it.

I plan to start painting and building models again, and I plan to start playing 40K again... but I'm not sure yet what kind of army I want. What I still have from before are:

The plastic Space marine and Dark Eldar models I got with my boxed set back in 2000somthin. Maybe a unit's worth each.

The Sisters of Battle Warriors of Redemption (12 Sisters) , the Sisters of Battle Seraphim Squad (5 Sisters) and the Sisters of Battle Immolator Tank

Way back in the Rogue Trader days I was an Ork Player, and I really would like to get into Orkyness again, but since I have these Sisters I'm think on making an army of them, and some inductees... but I don't know yet.

If I don't end up building the Sisters army, I'll probably be looking to sell what I have of it already.

So how spread out are the army lists in Cincinnati? Back when I used to play Rogue Trader... nearly everyone played Marines, Gaurdsmen and Eldar... very few did anything more... unique. As an ork player, I was the token bad guys most the time.

Anywhoo...

Oh, I forgot to ask.

Where and when can I find people playing 40K? Just to get into the swing of things again and meet people?

I've seen the posts about tournaments and a few about Leagues, but places and dates aren't apparent for regular "pick up" games.

Thanks

Well, with the release of the new Guard codex, everyone's been making Guard lists, although I don't know how many people are actually playing them. Not sure what everyone else actually plays, haven't played outside my group of friends while we work on figuring out a bunch of the rules.
If you want find people for one off games, just ask around in Make a Date forum. Popular play areas seem to be Sci Fi City and Yottaquest.
As for myself, I'm an Ork player, still working on getting models for a bike army I want to make, and I seem to be unique in my stance, so I know what you mean. Razz

I do miss my ork army. Back in the Rogue Trader days though they were less restrictive on customizing orks. With Doc Boy rules and Mech Boy rules you could make just about anything Smile

2 words:

Gyrostabilized Monowheel

heh.

But really I was more into Space Hulk than I was 40K back then. I had 2 sets of every Space Hulk box, the 2 original sets, 2 Deathwing sets and two Genestealer expansions.

Once at a convention I ran a Space Hulk game with two 4X8 tables side by side in one big table. The whole table full of map pieces, and 6 players with Terminator and Space Marine units against me and my partner playing Genestealers.

Alas.. once when I was poor, I had to sell all my space hulk stuff. Sad

Of course now I have the whole rule set in PDF and the map pieces in jpg. I could use the poster printer at work and print out hulk maps... hmmm....

Or you can just wait for the GW re-release of it with rumored plastic corridors. Yummy.

And by that you mean the new and "improved" 350 dollar Space Hulk set.

If having the new one means spending a 1000 dollars to get a good sized hulk... I'll stick with the cardboard map pieces. Smile

I've actually spent most of the night creating a properly scaled photoshop document with all the map pieces on it... that you can move around as layers to create a full hulk.

I guess I was bored.

You can always head down to Acme Games in Anderson. We play 40k on Monday nights and an Apoc game once a month on a Sunday (which happens to be this Sunday, May 24th). We have a pretty wide spread of armies represented. Usually orks, marines, IG, necron, eldar, deamons, chaos... with summer starting off, there is usually a lot of fresh players.
I returned to the game about 6 months ago and these guys were a great crowd.

Guardsman with skimmer, guardsmen with skimmers! Funky mohawks... squats.

If the Orcs made you happy then go green again. They have a decent codex, better than the last one.

With the Witchhunter & Space Marine Codexes you can use those Sisters with the Space Marines or vice versa.

Yes, you can call me Fleck, or just Patrick. Sadly, my schedule of late doesn't allow me to go to Acme on Monday nights, so I will not be there to meet you. But the rest of the guys are all really cool, hope you like the shop.

How big of a playing surface(s) does ACME have? I saw the building in Google maps street view and the store looks pretty small. Not that that means anything, the game store I used to play at back in the day was small looking too, but it had a big basement. Smile

It's not going to be even close to that much. They're hinting at a price point no more than $100. Seems decent to me.

Looks can be deceiving, they've got 5 permanent 4'x6' tables. Not to mention six 8 foot folding tables for all your gaming needs. They also have additional boards in the back in case anyone needs more space. Acme is more of a specialized hobby shop than a store packed wall to wall with a wide range of random product. That leaves a lot of room from gaming.

Well, whether or not that's a decent price will depend entirely on exactly how much comes with it.

Back in the day for 50 bucks you got a unit of plastic terminators (albiet cheapo ones), 20 nice plastic genestealers, and enough hulk rooms and passageways to build a pretty nice sized playing area.

We'll see what this rumored new edition comes with... but I'm guessing not much. But I guess they could surprise me.

Sorry I'm still a bit bitter over the way GW treated us in the past. Smile

I really think the model that we need to look at is the GW Assault on Black Reach set as opposed to anything they've done in the past. They've proven that they can get a lot of plastic in an affordable box. I guess as I'm newer to the game I don't harbour as much resentment as some of you Rogue Traders.

I've come to a decision on what army I'm going to build, and I bought a few things for it tonight via the internet.

I'm going to build a Witch Hunter army. I've already got a lot of the Sister of Battle, I have some Marines, I just ordered the Inquisitor retinue and the Witch Hunter Codex.

I'm going to also be buying the Dark Reach set to get the newest edition rules and some more Marines, plus the Marine Codex.

Then I just need to get building and painting.

I have the dark eldar unit that came with my old set still on the sprue. Let me know if anyone is interested in those.

I'll probably keep and paint the orks that come with dark reach, but we'll see.
