NO!!!

no where near it.

have you played Warhammer 40k? Necromunda? Mordheim? well its similiar but yet very different.

A squad sized skirmish game that is set in the Warhammer 40k Universe. You command a small squad 3-17 individuals. Each with their own equipment, armour and weapons. as they progress through the game they earn experience that will give them new skills. Thus making them a better fighter, shooter, or tactical unit.

you decide how your squad evolves and what they do. play one off games or a vast campaign. with 4 races to choose from and more coming soon the game will challenge you in many ways.

other good thing to note its alot cheaper then getting into Warhammer 40k but uses the same ministures so if you have any lying around you can easily convert them into a DS squad.

Talk to Kiwi [since by your nick you know him.] see what he's doing. hope this helps....

Cheers
LGW

@ kiwi's stupid friend:

WELCOME! We will honor your ALIAS, even when I don't think you are Kiwi's Stupid Friend. Wink Although LGW said it best, let me add a few things that would help you understand. Lets take a generic Toy Soldiers game as an example.

Imagine that you could build your own army of thousands of plastic green army men. You have some rules to make them work... who can shot, who get wounded, etc. It would be VERY cool... but you would never know the story or the name behind a SPECIFIC little plastic man. This is Warhammer 40k. You probably have seen it played, or know some of its SUPERB background, full of heroes and villains. When YOU get to play 40k, you can use many of its special characters and heroes... but you can't really create one of your very own. Each soldier gets lots in the massive army.

Death Squads is a skirmish game... same concept, but no more than 20 models per side. Now, you have some Officers (important people) with names, histories and skills as well as a bunch of Recruits (meat bags!) who could become Officers. Death Squads lets you customize each character and make your OWN stories. It is easy to learn, because you don't need to track hundreds of models on the table... and the things you can do are VERY personalized. It is NOT as personalized as playing a Role-Playing Game (like D&D), but it is close.

I suggest you watch the movie, The Dirty Dozen. It is the story of this bunch of military prisoners who are waiting for their Death Sentence... they are offered to 'volunteer' into a special mission (and by 'special' I mean 'suicide'). If they make it, they will be free; if they don't they still die... but as heroes! The 12 guys are specialists... the wise-guy, the religious freak, the strong man, the driver, the fencer... sure, leave the Hispanic guy to be the wimp-guitar player dude that bites the dust first... Rolling Eyes Anyway, compare this to the thousands in the Army fighting in WW2... they become very special.

You want to see how the players few guys become something BEYOND what they imagine? Read some of the Stories and Battle Reports (specially 02laney's)... all those stories came to be by narrating the game! No two games are the same, so YOU plant the initial seed, and the game will take you in a journey in which YOU are the hero... and everyone else the villain!
