Just a quick warning to those planning large games, I will be taking a 6ishx4ish table for Dark Heresy and that will probably be all evening. Sorry for any inconvenience caused but the larger table size really is needed as the smaller ones are just too crowded.

Formosa do you still want me to bring a camera to take a few photos of the club etc?

@Wesker, I might be depends on the points level and how long it takes me to finish off my Space Marine army. After all I've only 1 dread, 5 scouts, 10 assault marines, 5 sternguard, 5 vanguard, 5 honour guard and enough characters for about 10 armies to go (added a converted Master of the Forge with Conversion Beamer this weekend ). So shall we get started in 2 or 3 years?

In all seriousness I should be able to throw together a 1000pt army fairly quicky provided I find the time to paint a few more bits and pieces, any larger and at my glacial rate of painting it'll be over before I'm happy to field my army (I don't want to field this army unpainted).

PS: My on going quest to get rid of all my GW hobby stuff bar a few select items is continuing (afterall why would I continue to use inferior/more expensive stuff when I no longer paint in the store), got a whole load of new brushes and a black army painter spay can on the way. Still got a lot of paints to finish off before I can replace them with Vallejo paints though.

Yeah, with the size of tables etc I was thinking about running something about 1000-1200 pts.

Just Gauaging interest at this point thought, If people want to play planetstrike, Scenery would need to be made

Planet Strike interesting.

Personally I don't think it work very well at small points but it you are looking for a 1000 point game with one objective then we probably have enough scenerey. The club just got a Bastion and we also have an aegis defence line plus a number of craters

@ Wesker

Sounds ok, I like planet stike, however like cities of death it requires a certain level of preplanning to work properly. I don't really want a re-enactment of the GW shambles.

What was the GW Shambles?

Essentially, starting in January(if enough people are interested) you have mission rounds lasting for 2 or 4 weeks(depending on how many people want to play) where you run through each of the scenarios in order, with an "Order" and "Destruction" side.

Each game awards 3 points to the winner, 2 points each for a draw and 1 point to the loser.

There are certain bonuses for both the winners of each game and the losers of each game.

It culminates in a massive stand off where the accumulated bonuses for winning and losing each round previously are brought in to play.

Of course if anyone else has any ideas, feel free to contribute.

My necron horde is growing, and I don't need as many destroyers. I have 4 that I don't need, possibly 7.

GW on several occasions have tried to run planet strike campaigns or tournaments. Every time they're abandoned after the first week or two as everything simply turns into a massive rules arguement caused by few people actually owning or understanding the planet strike rules.

Well it doesn't help when the manager start throwing his own house (or rather store) rules in to the games too.

@spanky, i would. But my nods are in a shamble. I can barely raise a 500 point force. Plus, i want to begin learning chaos as they is my new 40k army.

The main reason the GW planet strike games were a shambles wasn't the house rules so much as lack of preparation.

We turned up and got stuck in something like 4 vs 4 game, every one was meant to have written an attacker and defender list plus pick one stratgem but only two people knew the rules and a number of the rest hadn't even known plantstrike was happening (Due to poor store communication). So few if any people present actually had anything planned.

So you had a lot of strangers basically trying to fight a cohesive battle without knowing the rules, a GW manager trying to make things more complicated and to top it off a complete lack of scenery.

Sorry to rant but I've posted on this subject a few times. Despite itself I really like the idea of Planetstrike as it allows you to play a game with a strong narrative game. However due to the rules, plus cost of stratagems, its a game that requires a lot of planning a scenery none of which GW provided.

There are a couple of rules I'm not mad on, first being firestorm it just encourages the defender to start everything off board (or at least everything not in a bastion), second is that the attacker can claim the objective by touching it. it makes no sense why if i'm hauled up in a bastion with twenty guardsmen does one marine, whose leaning on the outside, count as controlling it.

People often argue the deep strike rule is unfair, but if you have enough scenery deepstriking can be really hazardous.
