PostSubject: Hello There   Sat May 28, 2011 3:08 am

Im TicToc, Ive been playing 40k on and off for about 15 years. cant state enough how much I enjoy the 40k fluff or how much i cant stand GW's butchering and munchkining of the system. I play IG, have designed my own regiment with an extensive history and write up (Can provide if anyone is interested) and rely heavily on conversions to represent my Grenadier/Veteran army. I hope that covers all the bases. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Yay, another 40k veteran! Welcome, lost brother. You are not the only one disenchanted with GW. I think you can have a field day discussing that topic here, but... let's stay positive. Wink

Tough talk about fluff and models, I see! Haha, just kidding. I'd love to see what you've come up with. We've got specific places to post stories and pics, so please feel free to do so. I'm looking forward to checking out your models. Smile

Again: welcome! Play the game and tell us what you think!

Unfortunately I'm currently deployed out of the states and don't have the ability to play for a few months. But when I get home I will give you my take on the rules. As for fluff and pics I think I have some pics on a HD somewhere that I may be able to dig up. As for fluff that I can definitely provide and will do so in the near future.

Hi Again!

We'd love to see your IG army (may inspire us to build our own!). At least we can use the ace models that GW make to play the game they should be creating!

Laney Very Happy

Interested? OF COURSE!!! bounce

Ohhh... where are my manners! First (and most important) WELCOME HOME, BATTLE BROTHER! Like you, I think that 40k is a very interesting place... lots of interesting stories and development, still with potential for growth. Death Squads is my response to Mathhammering. I used to play 40k and create intricate stories for the game... everyone looked at me "Shut up and roll!" My friends still say that (specially Dozer and Arachas!) but once in a while they also start making stories! Hehehehe!

I'm also disappointed what someone did to the 40k fluff. I mean, Landraiders falling from the sky in drop pods just to justify some new idiotic rules ( Rolling Eyes ) ? Shocked How about Trygons fighting in Macragge just to fit the new models ( Puke ) ? How about Grey Knight Techmarines (AGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Skull ) ? I better ... shut up and roll. HA! I even say it to myself!

Just to let you know... the Lyubov's Ice Guard (as Regional Platoon in Death Squads ) is based on madprofet's custom IG army and story. VERY intricate. If you provide substantial background and specific... who knows, we may create a new Regional Platoon based on your Grenadiers!

Question... how did you found out about Death Squads? Take care... hope to see some of your guys pictures and looking forward reading your stories (do NOT abridge it!)

Mord, I cant tell you enough how good it is to hear like minded individuals. I had a long story written up earlier about how I found you but I had to log off ... But I digress. Basically I wanted a new rule set to work within... after lots of surfing and lots of trash found I ended up here. I was impressed, and I think I may have found a new home.

Here is a link to the pictures:

New home is good! You will be surprised to know how many of 'us' there are around. We have many people who (like you) are searching for a creative alternative and found us. They stop by, share their models, conversions and stories and either stay (and become Staff members) or stay as strong community members. Considering that we are not 'advertising', having over 1,400 members is not bad. We do have many 'lurkers'... but we ALL appreciate a good fluffy game! Thanks for sharing!

Off to see the models!
