Hey,

I am a long time 40k player and have recently gotten the urge to play Smaller Scale games in the 40k universe.

After some searching I found this system and Thunderhawk Down. So far I enjoy this system more.

So does anyone know a good starting place for me?

Also anybody playing this in Phoenix arizona?

Thank you,

p.s. any questions feel free to ask me.

Welcome to the group.

Not for sure what you mean "a good starting place."

I would suggest to start reading over the rulebook and seeing which Squad you see yourself playing.

If you are familiar with 40K there will be some simiiarities, or if you have played Necromunda, Mordheimer, GorkaMorka and etc you will catch on.

Check out the campaign and picture area of the forum to see what others have done.

I hear you. This week has been super crazy this week for me.

I am not sure if we have any Phoenix players on the forum or not.

If you have a local gaming store you might be able to go up and get some people to play.

I was in Atlanta for my job for 3 months and after a few weeks I finally made it to the local gaming store and we played Death Squads pretty much weekly after that. I am back in Florida but I met some great people who enjoyed the game.

What models or races of 40K stuff do you currently have?

@ Toeko: WELCOME, Desert Fighter!!!

I was lucky enough to read Thunderhawk Down, and while it offers great alternatives, we figure out it was not exactly what we wanted. Death Squads is growing (leaps & bounds) and we are working hard in making new Squads a reality... QUALITY over quantity.

A good place to start? HERE! See how easy it is? Maybe posting on the opponent finder and the map... so people know you are here. Then, read the rules and play some games at your local store.

lol Desert Fighter is a very true term. I agree with you on Thunderhawk Down. It just wasn't my thing and DS's community seems to be more active.

I have Handfuls of pretty much all 40k races. My wife is working towards painting on commission so she just gets random models to paint.

I have a buddy of mine who plans on playing with me so I will have at least have him. Once we grasp the rules were going to hit up our LGS and try to spread it around. their are alot of open minds their so it should be well received.

Do you still need "Beta" testers for kroot? and what about the Space Marine Scouts. I would be willing to test them for you and give you feedback.

I am so so with Space Marines, But I Have played Kroot Mercs on and off for the past 3ish years in 40k.

I'm sorry... but we have a saying here... "If you don't have pics... it did not happened!" Just Kidding Feel free to post pics of your wife's work (on the appropriate section) and to put an 'ad' on the Trading section. You never know... she may get a cult following here! HA!

Yes, we need Beta Testers! Just like the post says, play the game as written, post battle reports (remember... pics or it did not happened! Just Kidding ) post your comments (what you liked, dislike, etc) as well as what things you would like to see. As we see that you understand the game as written, and that you can give constructive criticism, we could make you a Beta Tester... give you acccess to some of the private areas as well as copies of the upcoming Squads for your to test. Wink

I would love to beta test for you, I am especially interested in the SM scouts because I am working on writing fluff for a scout heavy SM army. and Kroot have always been a passion for me.

I am willing to help out anyway I can. You have my full support

Great stuff to hear.

Get a group to game with, take some pics, post the reports and play the game as written. Once we see how you are doing we will be more than happy to look at beta testing and etc.

Look forward to see you comanding your first squad of DS. Death Squads
