He's never played WH before so he has no bloody idea what you're talking about :p


Nah I got this, it’s the space fascists cosplaying as Mega Man or the bronze skeletons that hit people with RAM.

Surprising nobody, this box is enormous and I will likely never finish painting as my hobby backlog is tremendous. I will wait on buying the codex for either faction as I assume they’ll be updated shortly?

 

Maybe I should make a separate thread dedicated solely to my painting misadventures...

It's hard to say because of Covid but I'd imagine the first codex would be Space Marines followed by Necrons. I'd imagine within the next at most 6 months at most they'd be updated. 

 

I'd just need Codex Eldar and Dark Eldar. Though with covid I don't think my friends and I are gonna play anytime soon. Still building up solar aux but I need to work on my hobby space. I got one of those G9 samsung monitors and it takes up so much space I can't leave my lamp on my table.

Interesting, I’d assumed Necrons would be first up since their codex is older, but I’ve been invested in 40K for < 1 week now so what the hell do I know :p

Space Marines are the most popular army so they will always get a codex first. Also you shouldnt need the dexes right this moment. The starter sets include a "get you by" unit rulebook. It won't have rules for things not in the boxset but it's enough to play a small points game vs another player.

 

It's a fun game but I find the current editions too simple but I am a strategy game nerd. Like I miss individual pain tokens for Dark Eldar from 5th edition.

Yeah, just thinking aloud, I don’t plan on getting new plastic for a bit. It’s not like I can go to my FLGS and play anyway, so it’d be roping my buddies or in laws into playing with me at my house using paint pots and tissue boxes as terrain, so... whatever :p 

 

Curious to see what happens to Kill Team and if I could roll some of these figs into squads for that.

You should be able to. The only problem would be the new units since they won't have kill team rules though they should be able to just carry them over.

 

Current GW has gone back to their old ways. So kill team is meant as a way to keep people that like small skirmish sci-fi games while at the same time giving people a place to get started in 40k. It's in part why specialist games is a thing. Don't want to pay 1k plus for a Titan maniple buy Adeptus Titanicus. Want dogfights in the 41st millenium Aeronautica Imperialis has you covered. 

 

I am waiting for Battlefleet Gothic.God i wish I could play.

Are they making a new version of that?

 

And I kinda wonder what will happen to Kill Team since 9th ed seems more compatible with smaller scale battles though again... what do I know?

That's a burning question that's been asked by a lot of Kill Team players since the revelation of Combat Patrol for the New Edition, especially since GW's support for Kill Team in the last year has been lacking.
