just joined up, I've played 40k for about 15 years, took the last two off and came back to a crazy mess of dataslates and supplements! Formations? yeah...sounds good! haha!
Unfortunately I see my favorite traitor marines are still meh, and not even the formations really help. Id love to get something going for around 500pts to fight my friend's "start collecting" Tau box set. I played a game with the contents of the "start collecting" Space Wolves set and got totally buried in missiles.
It's hard to say, because on one hand, I don't want to start power gaming at 500pts, but on the other hand....I don't want to lose EVERY game. Sometimes is fine, it is a game after all and I definitely do have fun, but I can't even imagine how to beat the sheer amount of fire power you face even at such a low points level. It's a little frustrating.
Anyways! I look forward to wandering around the site!
