My name is greystone and I am a veteran Warhammer player. I got into Death Squads when 40K jumped the shark (In my opinion).

I'm mainly a Tau player, so this new thing in 40k where everything is drop-pod assault army.

In fluff I've always been a Imperial Guard fan, due to the fact they are just regular schmoes fighting bio-genitic, powered armored monstrosities.

Welcome Greystone!

I feel your pain about 40k... I playED Necrons and Tyranids, although the stories of many races and armies still move me. On 5th Editions, the Necrons got nerfed big time (which could had been fixed EASILY with an FAQ...

Quote :
Necrons' Gauss Weapons always Glance on a 6 to-Wound, but you subtract -1 to the D6 roll, instead of the customary -2 on the vehicle damage table."
I'm a role-player... not a power gamer... so winning is not vital, but the fact that I knew that no matter what I could never win but me at odds end.

Then GW messed with the Tyranids... They started 'changing the history' to justify the new units. Puke Trygons at Ultramar? Double Puke Puke I decided then to play only with my closest friends (Dozer & jd3), because I could not stand the nerf on Synapse.

The cake was the Blood Angels' fluff... Deepstriking Land Raiders?!? Really? Drop Pods everywhere? No more 40k for The Mordheimer! Hehehehe... I rather keep my GREAT memories intact.

I think you will have fun with Death Squads ! Our goal is to ENHANCE the 40k experience (granted, that is not too difficult now) by allowing YOU to create your own stories while you play. We are into balancing the game, making sure the "regular schmoes" have a fighting chance. Smile We love the old-school fluff and make sure we fit the essentials of the 0k we all know and love.

Since I ask "What do you think?" to all Staff, I have included it here to save time.

Ya know what? After playing Guard for 10 years, I actually enjoying picking up some Blood Angels. Wink I have yet to play with them, though.

Welcome, Greystone!

Welcome to the site GreyStone..

i got out of WH40k way back after GW started messing with the prices of the figs, and how many you got in each pack. I think the last game i played was 3rd edition.

and had been playing since the end of Rogue Trader, ahhhh i miss those Blood Slaughters and Androids [though those dam robots killed either did very little or killed a lot of my own troops....]

well the IG certainly have some good range of choices and with more Squad lists coming soon you should have some trouble deciding which one to take. [Eg Adeptus Arbites are coming soon.....]

great to have you here looking forward to seeing your battle reports and pics of your squads.
