Quite a bit going on since last I chronicled. Let’s see what I can remember though…
I got to play this with Kamui a few weeks back. I honestly knew nothing of the game beyond the basic setting. My lack of interest in 40K has included anything in the setting.
So, getting to play the game meant learning everything. I mean, that goes without saying with a new game, but as I said – I knew nothing at all about this game.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun. Our goal was to learn how the game worked, not to play it through conclusion. We played through a few explorations, worked through the precipice stuff, etc.
I tried out a few heros. I tried the Rein & Raus (Ratling twins), Dahyak Grekh (Kroot dude), the Imperial Robot, and the Healer guy. Yeah, some names elude me and I can’t be bothered to look them up ;)
I really, really enjoyed the Ratling twins. Such a fun and different style of play. I also really liked the Healer/Priest guy. He heals and he’s not a slouch at combat like your typical healers in games.
It’s a little tricky to learn at first, but once we got through our first combat it all went quickly from there.
I’ve been in the hobby since 2006. In those years I’ve used some very cheap brushes. The past few years I’ve tried the Citadel brushes, which have been hit or miss. Some of those GW brushes will last for months and months while others die in weeks.
