Spent an entertaining day up at Fabes’ place yesterday figuring out how to play Warhammer 40k. We ran a very small scale (375 points) test game in which my Valhallans completely wiped the floor with his non-specific Space Marines. My stunning victory was down to a number of points..
- We had very little idea what we were doing
- The ridiculously low points value we ran with meant the Valhallans outnumbered the Marines about 3 to 1
- Fabes kept rolling 1s
But hey, it was just a run through to figure out the movement and shooting rules, so I shouldn’t crow too much 😀
I enjoyed the game enough to go and check out the cost of some Valhallan models (we were using proxies for everything) but – as one expects from Games Workshop – the prices are insane. If I can be bothered I might look at some alternatives, World War II Red Army figurines obviously – but no promises. I mean seriously, do I need another hobby? 😀
