PostSubject: Hello everyone   Mon Nov 08, 2010 12:08 pm

Hello I am a long term collector of 40k (18 years) and indeed many other GW games and stumbled upon this site whilst looking for rules for a skirmish level 40k game. I previously also worked for GW and have a lot of miniatures and scenery ( a lot of which is still boxed Sad ). I've always liked small games with a bit more dtail and am hugely into scenarios and campaigns although I have not been part of many. I love the look of the site and hopefully i'll get to talk to you some of you soon.

Thanks Laney, the site seems pretty awesome. Yeah I worked for GW for 6-7 years on the retail side and met a lot of good people who are now friends, both staff and customers. Although I am having some trouble accessing the rules.......

Of course!

Try going to the thread, then approach the TableTopGeeks link. Right click it and select Save As. That should do it.

Lorddante59, WELCOME!

It is an honor for us to have someone like you around. Death Squads is a community effort, and feedback from veterans is always well received! After you get the rules and play some games, feel free to comment.

I triple checked the links to get TLRB, and they seem to work fine. The file is fairly big (~10 MB) so when you click on the link it may take a while to download.... but it worries me that you can't get the file. Could you please tell me what browser are you using? Try writting the link to your browser:

http://deathsquads.tabletopgeeks.com/files/TLRB/Death%20Squads%20-%20Living%20Rulebook%20v0.5.1b.pdf

Let me know if you have any other troubles. Also, Like Laney said... PICTURES! Since you claim to...
[quote="Lorddante59"]... have a lot of miniatures and scenery ( a lot of which is still boxed Sad ). quote]
Start with pictures of the boxes! Hey, you know... Pictures or It Didn't Happen! Just Kidding


WELCOME!

OHHHH!!! I have been royally schooled! HAHAH! OK... I yield!!! You could open your own GW Store! HAHAHA!

BTW... I know that in most forums they tend to 'like' and 'promote' small pictures (thumbnails)... but we actually LOVE pictures! If we do NOT mind thread Necromancy, as the posting would enhance YOUR gaming experience... why would we mind if you post a BIG photo, since it would enhance EVERYONE'S gaming experience? I went ahead and changed the thumbnails to the larger pics; hope you don't mind.

OFFICIALLY... I'm green with envy!



I hope you keep schooling me... Smack Just Kidding

Married, kids, moved and no longer have time. I phased out hundreds of minatures over the last six years.

I still have some fantasy stuff to get rid of as I don't plan on playing anytime soon.
