Hi All,

I am a long time gamer, former GW employee, SPFX artist and all around professional wierdo. Some of the game armies I have:

Dark Angels 40k
Skaven Mordheim
Undead Mordheim
Orlock Necromunda
Eshcer Necromunda
Goliath Necromunda
Delaque Necromunda
Cawdor Necromunda
Cryx Warmachine
Guild (Ortegas and Death Marshals) malifaux
Beastmen BloodBowl.

It's nice to finally stop poking around and introduce myself. I plan to go over the Death Squad rules and put a force together and see what this is all about. If nothing else it should make for some great conversions.

Snippet of a conversation from a game I played:

Customer: What is that thing?
Me: Its a Dreadnaught.
Customer: Not like any dreadnaught I have ever seen.
Shop owner: Its Rogue Trader era. Before your time.
My oOpponent : Yeah, when he opens his dark angels case its like a geek version of antiques roadshow.

Not gonna lie, that made me chuckle pretty darn good.

Welcome to the forums!

I for one look forward to hearing you opinion on the game.

I also demand pictures of your RT Beakie marines....especially those of your DA. I have been an avid DA player myself since 4th.

Virginia?!?! Ohhh, wait... I missed the traditional...

Salute WELCOME, Brother Gizzawd! Salute

It is a GREAT thing to see you come back from The Warp! So when you play 40k it was actually called 39k? AWESOME! Hehehehe... In all seriousness, it is good to see some of the old-guard (no pun intended) around! We aim to please, and it seem that the old school fluff pleases many! Very Happy

Now... where in Virginia? I asked because I just moved to Elizabeth City (NC), and I'm 1 hr away from Norfolk (VA). I'm started to pollute indoctrinate brainwash convince some of the locals to play Death Squads. MUAHAHAHAH!!!! Twisted Evil Do you have a current group where you play? How did you heard about Death Squads?

Well, since you brought the amount of models you have and how alien (maybe pun intended) they are... we want PICS!!!! Hahaha! We love pics. Also, if you play, please remember to help us gather Data so we can adjust Squad Rating (LINK). I hope that you enjoy YOUR game. If you have any questions, comments and/or suggestions... PLEASE let us know!

When I get a chance I will take some pics and post them. As for where I am at.. I am in Water View. I am about an hour and a half north of Norfolk depending on traffic. I'm about 2 hours or so from D.C/NoVa. I tend to do most of my wargaming in Williamsburg.

Welcome to Death Squads! Wow, die-hard Necromunda player I see. Some of your warbands should fit seemlessly into in terms of models (try IG or Renegades).

Would love to see pics of all those models!

I am considering picking up some of the catachans for death squads. The command squad box has a lot of potential for conversion and customization. I always preferred the squad based skirmish games to the long drawn out 40k games. I remember one 40k 2nd ed game i played that lasted a weekend.

I forgot to answer an earlier question... I found death squads from the mordheimer site as some friends of mine want to get some mordheim going. I just kept following the links until I got here.

Good lord.....how many points were you playing?? I've only heard of Apocolypse games lasting that long, and thats because they are 25,000 points a side.....

The game was 4000 a side, but back then the rules were a lot less streamlined and a lot more convoluted. you would have to roll up to 7 dice for armor penetration, every weapon had a negative armor save, not an ap value, and then there was overwatch.....

HISSSS... overwatch... Stick of Doom

Catachans are cool and very easy to convert. I gathered all my remaining Catachan bits, together with some Space Marine scout bit and voila! I had a squad (and yes, I still need to post it).
