Black Reach and a friend.
So, I got Assault on Black Reach a few days ago. Lemme just say how much better this box is than Macragge, and I'm pretty sure I can, since you can get all this by reading the box. It has an SM Tactical Squad, a Termi Squad, a Commander, and a Dreadnought. Something like $150 value. Plus Ork Boss, Nobs, two Boyz Mobz, and three Deffkoptaz. Again, I'd say a $150 value, or more. All for $60.
So anyway, I play Black Templars, and already have a couple of Crusader Squads. So I'm in my local game store(Not GW) looking for a Dreadnought. Well, the lady who runs the store tells me that there's one in the box set. I hadn't looked twice at it, having bought BFM to start me out, and it kind of nosedived. So I look at this thing, and I see a real opportunity in SM pieces, but I also see a lot of Orks, which are my second choice after Space Marines, but I don't feel like buying green paint right now.
Therefore, my plan is to give them to a young friend of mine who, when I told him about the game in great detail, said it sounded like a lot of fun. . I don't want to hand a twelve year old a bunch of Orks and make him do it himself, and another thing is, the only 40Kers I've seen around are me and another friend who plays Tau, and we don't play very often. I'm not sure what I'm asking here, I guess I'm just looking for a little guidance.
It's kind of demoralizing to spend about a hundred dollars on a game, only to realize that the community consits of you, the guy you coaxed into buying some Fire Warriors and a Hammerhead, and the rest are across the pond.
