IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FAR FUTURE, THERE IS ONLY WAR



Welcome to the 41st millennium. It's a shitty place to live. Thanks to a nob named Horus Lupercal being manipulated by an even bigger nob named Erebus to throw down with his God Emperor daddy and turned things to crap. The players in this far future fuckery are:

The Imperium of Man. AKA, humanity. Worshiping a skeleton and sending crazy super soldiers called Space Marines to purge their enemies.
The Forces of Chaos. Lunatics who worship one of four Gods: Blood God, Sick God, Hentai God and "All According To Keikaku" God.
Da Orks. Big green Cockney fungus monsters who love a good scrap,
The Eldar. Space Elves who come in two flavors: Vanilla and So kinky the humped a Chaos God into existence.
The Tau. Communist weeb space cows,
The Necrons. The Terminator IN SPACE!
And the Tyranids. Big, hungry space bugs.

Having only played necromunda back in the 1st version (technically the 2nd if we count confrontation) I couldn't really say. I suppose kill team is more directly compatible with regular 40k minis wise. Necromunda gangs really only vaguely work for guard/pdf and cultist armies.

Me neither, but Age of Sigmar has taken the place of WHF since the fantasy world quite literally exploded. But, as far as I am concerned, it's not wrong to keep the thread title old school.

Get into Kill Team. It's more popular, and most of the models can be used in mainline 40k if you want to play that eventually.

Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long.

Some old veterans continue to bitch about Age of Sigmar but the truth is that its sales go really well whereas 9th Age is rapidly declining. People may not like it but the numbers are on GW's side.

On the plus side, GW seems to have somewhat reacted to fan pressure in that they are sloooowly bringing the "classic" fantasy races back into the setting. Battletomes Orruk Warclans (aka Orcs) and Cities of Sigmar (aka Empire) have been announced yesterday:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/201 ... ge-post-1/

It's also expected that we'll see Battletome Slaves to Darkness (aka Warriors of Chaos) before the end of the year.

The absolute irony would be if GW should at some point decide to bring 40k's "3 scales" format (Kill Team for small skirmishes, 40k for medium sized games, Apocalypse for massive horde battles) to AoS (they've already covered two out of three with AoS and now Warcry) and essentially bring back Rank & File movement trays.
