Post subject: 40k expansions

thinkings about playing 40k has got me interested again and looking at various articles etc.

I hadnt realised quite how far GW has taken 40k now. The Apocalypse rules mean you can just take anything you want for a massive battle, Planetstrike lets you stage a full scale invasion, Cities of death is rules for cities (and they sell a laser sight for lines of sight), and planetary empires has hex tiles for creating full planetary scale campaigns.

i know most of this is horribly expensive and can probably be proxied, but if i had the time and money i think id be very tempted. I’ve always wanted to play a full scale planetary invasion and this would make it possible with little effort.

Definitely looking forward to playing a few games now :)

It all sounds interesting, and very tempting. I haven’t really investigated what the rules are all about, but would be interested to learn more.

i love the idea of fighting campaigns and having a good storyline throughout! especially a campaign that centres around guard vs orcs, which is certainly my favourite encounter in 40k.

i think the best way for us to try and approach this is to organise it around one weekend, like we tried before xmas, until we realised we were all busy :/

but we could possible sort out another weekend sometime in the next few months when we can all crash at one house and play from friday night to sunday morning through various encounters, only taking breaks to play AF in the park and drink beer at one of lymingtons fine drinking houses.

how about sometime in may? nothing happens in that month, does it?

i wouldn’t mind sharing the cost of purchasing campaign materials…

I think Rob has acquired some rules…

We’ll see how this weekend goes and can talk about it then. Though I would definately be up for a campaign weekend! An approximate storyline/plan working small skirmishes to large titanic clash!

IG vs orks (preferably) or nids?
