    I agree bensw. Of course I’m not naive to think it wasn’t part of the decision making process to employ both a good-looking woman and a good-looking man. But I agree with you that it’s unnecessary to comment on it.

    We can always ignore our so-called natural instincts, or at least modify them. It’s one of the joys of being civilised. 🙂

    Again, it’s all pretty easy and doesn’t involve taking away anyone’s rights or free speech. If people want to retain what I personally identify as old-fashioned attitudes, there’s nothing I can do about it.

    Personally, I advocate that we all use a bit of imagination and empathy and put ourselves in the shoes of the other person (though that may be a tad difficult for some men who think that getting personal compliments from strangers on the internet would be welcome ;). That’s all!

    I get it. You don’t like my opinions. I said I’d try to avoid having them before and failed. Maybe this time I will succeed.

    As for Kill Team… it arrived. Only flicked through rules, but squad building looks overly complex.

    Hopefully rules are less complex.

    Compared to regular 40k, squad building is actually pretty quick and easy. Most squads will likely have between 6 and 10 dudes. Your Roster can consist of up to 20 units, but you’ll only ever field 100 points max per game. I like the idea of filling my roster (or bench, as I like to think of it) with lots of different loadouts for all occasions, and then choosing from that list once I see who my opponent will be, and what the mission is. So the kill team will be different from game to game, but the familiar faces will all be there.

    My Death Guard can only choose between Plague Marines and Pox Walkers, so…..5 marines and 2 Poxwalkers is pretty much what I’ll be running.

    The part I’m still scratching my head on is who to take as which of the “specialisms.” But that’ll come with playing more and figuring out who excels at what role.

    What part of squad building is giving you trouble? What army ya playing? The ones in the box?

    I’ll only be doing friendly games.

    Just fiddly working out trooper+weapons etc.

    Actually, biggest pain is identifying weapons on sprue. Would it hurt GW to say which is bolt pistol and which is auto pistol? Make life easier.

    I’m not planning a big roster, the minis are very expensive. And no where near 100 points on each team in box. The cards provided are under 60 points by look of it.

    Oh, I totally agree. A diagram of what is what would be very helpful to those of us who don’t know the world by heart.

    The teams in the box are very unbalanced.

    The Ad Mech guys actually total 96 points if you build them as described on their data cards. The Gene Stealers come in around 75 total I think.

    I got a pretty good run down of the weapons from some fellow nerds. I can post pics if you’d like to help get your bearings.

    Finally I can do something with the T’au I (very foolishly) bought for Shadow Wars Armageddon 🙂

    I ended up googling and think I figured out lead genestealers weapons.

    It’s like GW has decided that only 40K players want it. They’re not catering for newcomers.

    Primarily I’m in this for the terrain and was thinking of using the genestealers in Necromunda as White Dwarf published an article with genestealer stats.

    I already have forge bane, so got quite an army of Adepptus Mech.

    A friend of mine also bought kill team. I might see if he wants to trade armies.

    Received Kill Team and it’s a pretty impressive package, packed to the top of the lid. Love the deep orange and black colour scheme. Unboxing video soon.

    If I decide not to go all-in on Adeptus Titanicus, I might take a serious look at Kill Team. Though the 40k-universe appeals to me, the thought of buying and painting dozens of models puts me off and this seems like an attractive alternative.

    And at least it’s relatively affordable. 🙂

    Absolutely. I especially like the fact that it won’t cost you an arm and a leg if you decide you want to try out another faction.

    Had my first couple of games of Kill Team last night.

    The quick start 2 vs 2 was very dull, but taught us the basics.

    After that we did a 5 vs 5 to try out the heavier weapons, but opted for a death match as we had limited time and skipped the tactics cards.

    I know that’s not playing the full rules, but it did feel a bit lacking.

    Terrain is great though.
