40K and me, pt.2

I played 40K for the first time in about 20 years last night. And I had a good time, in large part because my opponent Adan is a great guy and was all about actually teaching me how to play and what to do (as opposed to simply thrashing the noob, which I’m quite sure he could have done without much trouble).

We played 5 turns and I came out on top somehow. There were some cool fights going on, like the duel between his commander and my dreadnought, which saw both of them taking pieces out of each other and went on for two turns and was still undecided at the end of the game. I tried to just go for it, hurling my units into the fray and not worrying too much if they got wasted. Playing for laffs is the way to go for me.

I won’t be giving up Stargrunt (at least not until Tomorrow’s War comes out), and I saw some kinda eyerolling things in the game last night, but I can live with them.

Overall, it turned out to be a more positive experience than I thought it would be, and I would play the game (with friends) again.

  1. It was nice to see your minis in person Mike. Great job.

    • Some of the other guys that were playing came over and made some nice comments, so that was cool too. Motivated me to do more!
