Hmmmm.  What's the availability like on 30k marines?  

in terms of being able to get them? 

I know the store I go to has 1 each of the unit boxes but is out of the big themed sets (burning of prospero etc)

There is nothing quite like going to GW webstore, taking one look at the prices and feeling your blood pressure rise then a righteous but unholy rant starts to spew forth from your mouth ... and then you realize that you are on the Australian store.  

 

Seems to happen every few years to me.

 

Seems GW still sells the prospero set so if I wanted some 30k marines, hopefully the store could order that in.

It's official, Necromunda is returning "very soon". Pics of new HARD PLASTIC GANG KITS are up on the Warhammer Community site for house Goliath and house Escher.

Looking around GW's store, it seems that the Kroot are the models that really call out to me.   That's interesting because those are exactly what I was attracted to when I last played, long, long ago.   Would a Kroot heavy Tau force be viable?

 

It kind of reminds me of when I tried  getting back into WoW and tried various races and classes with nothing clicking but when I went back to a Night Elf Druid, it only took one jump flip while still in the newb zone to realize that was the only way to play.

 

Overall it's kind of surprising how similar everything is, at least outside the Imperium.

Sadly it seem like the group of guys that play at that new store are pretty cool guys, looking to have some fun and not looking to table people on the first turn.   I'm in.

 

I bought the rulebook, SM codex and the one index that they had in the store.  40K, man, what is even happening.

I think I'm going to order the Burning of Prospero set. This despite the fact that, in my estimation, looking at those Legio Custodes minis is probably more dangerous to one's retinas than looking directly at an eclipse.  Seems like it's a good enough deal to be worth the risk.

 

If the Betrayal at Cath set had the same Mk III marines I'd go ahead and order that too.  I'll have to think on whether it's worth trying to find someone that wants to swap marines or if I'm OK with the Mk IVs.

 

 

I'm thinking of having my guys being a surviving Pre-Heresy chapter that's essentially cut off from the Imperium by Chaos/Warp Storms/Whatever.  Possibly they'll have been founded by the survivors of a ship that has crashed onto a remote but populated planet.  

 

Any resemblance to certain factors in Ethiopian history is pure coincidence.

 

 

Some random questions:

 

Do people like the new Primaris Marines?  The fluff?  Are they fun to paint?

 

Any podcasts beside "The Independent Characters" I should listen to?  I could especially use a podcast that's a good introduction to the lore.

 

Any favorite tutorials on how to paint Marines?

When I was at the new gamestore in town this weekend, I took pictures of all the times of things.  Looking at them later I realized that there is a "Learn to Paint Warhammer 40K" from 3-5 every Third Saturday.  So, I may or may not have 4 space marines in my hands before the weekend.  

 

Of course, when I first was looking, it was Fantasy and I have some Skaven and High Elves, but as it all disappeared along with the forums shortly after I bought that box, I tabled it and looked elsewhere.  But, having a chance to build a community has me looking at SciFi and from what I have been reading, it seems like New Warhammer 40K is a good time to jump in.  Worst case, I paint a few space marines and learn enough to know whether I really want Raven Guard or something different and never play anything.  Best case, I find a few people interested in playing complex games and slowly build out an army.  And if I trade in my Magic cards again for store credit and happen to get miniatures back, that's a bonus in my book.

MMmmm tasty. Strangely enough I've never been that good at card games but I do like the art work. Since I was kid I've always wanted to collect a whole set of something... I've only done it once with some of those old x-men cards back in the day. I wanted to do it with the Battletech Card game but i missed that boat.  

 

Thanks for the link! 

 

 

Looking it up right now. Found it on Fantasy Flight games... 39.99... but does not appear to be available...

 

Amazon... One review says it's not in production anymore... Mmm ::(:
