Just discovering the game now and i was wonder how it plays in comparrison to 40k? From what I can tell its much more tactical, and theres alot of rules to remember, but it certain does seem fun, and the models are pretty damned amazing too.

Be warned that as a noob, you will probably have games that last all of 10 minutes, before you even get your turn as active player (even with AROs) should you not have the luck of going first.

My first game had me in Loss of Lieutenant (LoL) AND "in retreat" by the time we got to my turn 1 (went 2nd). That took all of 10 minutes. My turn consisted of electing a new Lt and running away off the table.

It wasn't a good game. I've got better since. My games often make it to turn 2 or three now with the odd win.

Going first trumps deploying first.

Talking of amazing models.
The Cutter. Remote-operated battlesuit with thermoptic camo and a gun that fires a selection of ammo including explosive (three saves per hit).


And the antidote for camo on the other side:
Aquila guard.
Multi-spectral visor lvl 3 - ignores all camo modifiers and allows shots against them as if they were in plain sight (does not ignore cover mods).

I agree the models are fricken amazing. A few of my friends are starting, but I am not as I have way to much to work on already. Doing dystopian wars right now as well as waiting for the new Vampire Counts.

I did look at the rules and from what I get its closer to warmachine than warhammer. Its more individual model based with an action/reaction mechanic. It is also a d20 system where you make a test roll against your values to see what happens, the opponent than can make a test against their value to avoid your action or do something else. Its an interesting system but can be a little confusing at the start. Game looks interesting though. Coolest part, you have guys that can hack and disable robots or vehicles.
