1st 40k Game Ever

Post#1 » Jul 12 2017 10:45

Just played my first ever game of 40k and loved it. It's a 500pt league at my LGS. So naturally I have a billion questions and would like some help with lists. I hope everyone will be nice to me!

First, I can't figure out how to start new threads or reply to existing threads.

I have a question about Overwatch and For the Greater Good

Also, I'm allowed to tweak my 500pt list week to week and have very little idea what to do.

Welcome shas'la! Its always great to meet new commanders.

This forum locks your ability to post outside the membership profile board until after an admin clears your profile. Speaking of which there is a sticky at the top of this board that has a profile outline. Edit your first post and fill out that profile and usually within a day or so you'll be cleared.

As for your questions i sugest going to the general board and using the search function. Your question may have already been answered!

Anyway welcome aboard!

Tweeking lists is largely dependent on knowing who you're going to fight. I love the Tau because of how versatile they are, so it's easily doable. Since you're new you probably don't know much about all the armies, but that will come with time. Just have fun learning and keep fighting for the greater good!
If kroot eat orks, doesn't that make them omvivores?

You can tweak your list if you know in advance who're you're going to fight, but some players aren't going to like you "tailoring" your army to beat them. Rather, consider making a powerful "take-all-comers" army and have the army list printed out beforehand. That way no-one can accuse you of making an army custom-built to beat them.

It's just a league for new players and we have no idea who we'll be against each week, so I'd like to make sure my bases are all covered.

However, my friend that got me in to the hobby plays orks and it felt real good to take out 17 boyz in one round of Strike Team rifle fire!
