    Any 40k players here?

    I'm collecting at the moment and got sucked into a gaming club at East Grinstead. Had a few games with Orks and painting up a Dark Eldar Wych Cult which is about 1000pts. Will get stomped with Overwatch and fragile Raiders getting trashed but they look cool and no-one at the club has seen them. Theme is more important then effectiveness IMO!

    Used to! Hoping to start up again soon in fact. Had a Space Marines army, Chaos Army (my pride and joy) and an Ork army when I was a teen. Sold the lot for about a grand to help fund uni though!

    I can give you painting tips if you like, might blog it. No longer need to thin paint for a typical looking army, undercoat followed by basecoat then ink gives quick and effective results.

    I had a chaos army too. Loved them! Think they are still in the roof space too. Was a sad tale though, only a handful of people I knew collected them yet none of them actually played!

    Agrax Earthshade. King of all washes for that subtle brown shade to bring out the recesses.

    Not any more, prices were bad when I were a young 'un (12-15 years ago when I played) but they're downright obscene these days. I still have all my models lying around though, they're in too much of a state to really sell.

    Got a mostly painted Alaitoc Eldar army at home (can of white spray paint for the undercoat, blue, black and yellow wash as appropriate then some paint for the details - squad of twenty painted in an afternoon ) but Chaos Space Marines are still clearly the best. I also have a lot of Dark Elves, Dwarves, some bits of Orc & Gobbo, a Necromunda Delaque squad, lots of GorkaMorka and a Skaven Mordheim gang.

    I preferred the skirmish games in the end, less effort to set up and didn't lose their momentum half so much as the bigger games tended to - plus I liked the sense of progression in watching a Juve earn his stripes, take a wound to the leg, and develop a whole little backstory through a series of (un)lucky dice rolls.

    'nids and Dark Eldar, but I had to sell my Dark Eldar during money troubles Preferred them to my Tyranids, much more fun and tactical, but this was right after the re-release so they were more sought after.

    Don't actively play so much now, though..

    I took my Dark Eldar to East Grinstead for their first game on Sunday. They turned heads, opened the case and had players coming up going "Wow, Dark Eldar. Never played against those. What's that model? This the new or old Raider?"

    Played against Eldar and ended with my Wyches failing to charge twice in a row before they finally got in combat and wiped a squad each in a turn. Lelith alone threw out 12 attacks on her own (WS9 versus WS3 with a bonus attack for each point of difference!). And a game turning Fire Prism kept bouncing off my Dark Lance and Blaster shots. I lost but it was fun!

    Lelith Hesperax is just.. just brutal. Shove her with a squad of Bloodbrides and you've got some awesome close-combat fun times.
    Kabalite Warriors with Splinter Rifles are good (put in a Splinter Cannon, too for Assault4/Heavy6 goodness).. Scourges are great hit-and-run units and don't get me started on how filthy the Homunculi can be if spec'd right.

    I miss my Dark Eldar. Wish I'd have sold my 'nids instead

    We have a club in school with a number of students - I pop along sometimes but haven't got my own set or anything - would be interested though, it is just finding the time between work and uni.

    I might be dropping Lelith to squeeze another squad of Wyches in. She was good but for 1000pts I only have a few Raiders on the board to soak up first turn shooting volleys. Tempted to add a Ravager with Disintegrator Cannons too for some AP2 anti-infantry fire.

    Have just started collecting the Tau.
    Nearly finished my 600pt army to a level where I can get playing.
    Going to start aiming for 1000pts soon.
