Warhammer 40k: DAT BANEBLADE NEEDZ SUM BITZ AND RED PAINT

Warhammer 40k is a futuristic tabletop strategy game created by GamesWorkshop, it pits several races and factions against each other for control of the galaxy. The wiki article can be found here.

Setting
The Warhammer 40,000 game world is most readily characterized as a gothic science-fantasy setting. The central and most popular elements of the Warhammer 40,000 universe are the Space Marines, anachronistic combinations of sci-fi super-soldiers and fantasy knights and the finest warriors of the Imperium of Mankind, a dystopian and degenerate galaxy-spanning empire.

The physical setting of this story is the Materium, with all action here in the Milky Way Galaxy. Much of this is controlled by The Imperium of Man, though it is not the only galactic power. Other races include the Orks, a greenskinned trollike race, and the Eldar, the former rulers of a great empire. A dynamic, galaxy-spanning story line is possible because of a separate plane of existence, the Immaterium or "Warp." The Warp is described as a realm of thought, where desires and emotions can take physical form, and with currents and eddies that make traveling vast interstellar distances difficult, yet possible. As this is a realm of thought, a coalescence yields an often sinister warp entity. The strongest of these entities are the Chaos Gods, Khorne (a god of rage, bloodshed, and war), Nurgle (a god of despair, decay and pestilitic disease), Tzeentch (a god of change, deception, scheming, Sorcery, and, oddly enough, hope) and Slaanesh (a god of pleasure, pain, depravity, pride and decadence).

The Gods of Chaos are the result of the strongest impulses in the living souls of the universe's inhabitants. Their cults have a dynamic and antagonistic relationship. Khorne opposes Slaanesh, while Nurgle opposes Tzeentch. Nurgle is the personification of powerlessness, Tzeentch personifies power, Khorne personifies duty and rage, and Slaanesh personifies the epicurean or the sensual. These four powers are not the only entities in the Warp, but they are the greatest and most powerful. It is said, in the background to Warhammer 40,000, that the nature of the Warp is beyond human comprehension and is truly unknowable.
The aim of every person who plays Warhammer 40,000 is to pit their force of miniatures against other players across war-torn futuristic battlefields. Win or lose, all battles are entertaining challenges in which you try to out-think and out-play your opponent, taking advantage of what good luck comes your way, but ultimately relying upon sound tactics to win the day.

To start down the road of enjoying this exciting game and hobby, you'll need a few things! First, and most importantly, you'll need an army. Next, you'll need to find an opponent – either a friend that lives right down the street or someone you've bumped into once or twice at your local Hobby Center. However, before any of this can take place, you'll need to get your hands on the rules.

If you are just starting out with Warhammer 40,000, the best place to learn the rules is with The Battle for Macragge Boxed Set. It contains all of the basic rules you need to get started playing Warhammer 40,000 and several beginner scenarios pitting the mighty Space Marines against the vicious Tyranid horde. You will also get Space Marine and Tyranid models to use in the scenarios, as well as terrain, dice, and templates.

Once you're familiar with how Warhammer 40,000 works, you'll want to get your hands on the rulebook. It contains the complete rules for the game, including the basic mechanics included in the Battle for Macragge, as well as advanced rules and missions not included in the boxed set.

The rulebook is also full of flavorful background material that gives you the history and other information about the grim universe of the 41st millennium. Lastly, the rulebook contains a hobby and gaming guide that shows you how to paint and play with your miniatures as you delve into your new hobby.

Main races:

csm_02.gif
Chaos Space Marines - The Betrayers - At the very birth of the Imperium of Man, fully half of the Emperor's most trusted Space Marine Legions turned against him in a bitter civil war. Brother fought brother, and Mankind stood upon the very brink of extinction. Ten thousand years after their defeat, those same traitors still launch their Black Crusades out of the Eye of Terror, their black hearts intent upon nothing less than the utter destruction of the Imperium and the death of its weakling Emperor.

sm_10.gif
Deamonhunters - The Malleus - The Imperium of Man is beset on all quarters by enemies bent on its destruction. Traitors, heretics, and aliens pound on the multi-layered defenses of Humanity. However, there are some threats that standard Imperial forces, including the mighty Space Marines, are incapable of facing. The Inquisition was created to face exactly these threats.

de_01.gif
Dark Eldar - The Lost- The Dark Eldar inhabit a realm called Commorragh, a place as darkly twisted as its rulers, from which these pirates launch raids across the length and breadth of the galaxy. The purpose of these raids is not to conquer planets or protect territory but to cause mayhem, steal, pillage, and – most importantly of all – capture new victims to be taken back to Commorragh for endless torture.

eldar_00.gif
Eldar - The Dying - The Eldar are an incredibly ancient race who once ruled a vast empire across the stars. Then came the hideous time of the Fall, when the Eldar were consumed by their own decadence to the brink of extinction. The few who survived were scattered across the stars. Though the Eldar are few in number, they continue to be one of the most technologically advanced races in the galaxy. This advantage is combined with the prescient abilities of their Farseers, who scry the future and guide their kin along the most favorable paths of fate.

ig_00.gif
Imperial Guard - The Dutiful - In the midst of genetically engineered super-beings, alien killing machines, warrior mystics, and technology that approaches sorcery in its sophistication, the Imperial Guard are mere soldiers. Clad in a flak jacket and carrying a lasgun, they have to contend with the most terrifying threats, relying on numbers, massed firepower and a bayonet with some guts behind it. As such it is easy to identify with these brave souls and to see in them the qualities of true heroes. Also: tanks tank lol

necron.gif
Necrons - The Ancient - The Necrons, an alien race ancient beyond imagining, are awakening from their 60-million-year dormancy to plague the living once more. Thousands of immortal, soulless warriors have risen from dusty stasis-tombs, their cold wills bent on harvesting the teeming species of the galaxy. Their miraculous technology was far in advance of any contemporary equivalent long before the Eldar, reckoned the oldest among races, had begun their existence.

ork.gif
Orks - The Beast - Orks are the most widespread and warlike race of aliens in the bloodstained galaxy of the 41st millennium. From the depths of the galactic core to the distant ghost-stars beyond the rim, burgeoning Ork empires rise and fall. In terms of sheer numbers and planets, Orks occupy more of the galaxy than any other single race, and if they ever unified, they would soon crush all opposition. However, the Orks' passion for violence is so unquenchable that they spend most of their time warring against themselves.

sm_02.gif
Space Marines - The Loyal - Space Marines are the most powerful and dreaded of all the human warriors in the galaxy. They are not human at all, but superhuman, having been made superior, in all respects, to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training. Being few in number compared to the uncounted billions of humanity, Space Marines are organized into small independent armies called Chapters. Their unswerving loyalty is to the Emperor of Mankind, their Chapter second, and no other.

tau.gif
Tau Empire - The Young - Since their first contact with the Imperium in the 35th millennium, the Tau have risen from a hunter-gatherer society to a star-faring race in less than six thousand years. Absolutely obedient to the command of the enigmatic ethereal caste, the Tau believe that now is their time. It is their race and their Empire that will bring unity to all. There is no foe their technology cannot overcome, no quandary their science cannot resolve, the stars and all that lie between to be joined beneath the aegis of the Greater Good.

tyranid.gif
Tyranids - The Hungry - The Tyranids are without doubt the most alien race encountered by Humanity. They have been likened to a galactic swarm of locusts, remorselessly hungry and too numerous to stop. Tyranids are a nomadic, space-dwelling race that has migrated from beyond our galaxy in search of new resources to consume. Under the direction of the Hive Mind, Tyranid Hive Fleets have bored into our space. These Fleets have discovered sustenance in abundance in the forms of the Imperium of Man and the other species of the Milky Way galaxy. Tyranids continue their endless advance, seeking planets to strip of bio-mass before moving on, leaving nothing but a ball of scoured rock in the wake of their titanic swarms. What's worse, no one seems able to halt, let alone reverse, the Tyranid tide.

sister.gif
Witchhunters - The Faithful - The darkness within the Imperium is a sinister and subtle threat. The heretic, mutant, and rogue psyker pose a great danger to Humanity and threaten it with an internal rot that can be far more damaging than alien invasion. Answering this threat is the Ordo Hereticus, the Order of the Inquisition devoted to hunting down and eliminating these particular threats. Known as the Witch Hunters, these Inquisitors command the might of the Imperium – especially the Adepta Sororitas – in their hunt for the witch, the mutant, the heretic, and the fallen cleric. No one is above the cleansing fire of the Witch Hunters.

Where can I buy this stuff online?
http://www.games-workshop.com/ - The main site. Not the cheapest place to get minis, but if you can't find it anywhere else...

http://www.forgeworld.com/ - Beautiful resin models to add spiff to any army. The place to go if you love your hobby, but hate your wallet.

http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk - Consistent discounts, extra discounts on 5+ 'army bundles', free international shipping, great selection. Used as #1 seller by myself and several other users.

http://www.chaosorc.com - Good discounts (particularly on large items), cheap shipping. patchy selection but carries lots of older products and non-GW stuff. Some items aren't clearly labeled differently from older versions, but they're a good alternative on specific items.

http://thewarstore.com/ - Excellent selection, good discounts, good service. 20% off normal prices, 25% off orders of $400 (adjusted price) or more. $3.95 shipping flat rate (free on certain orders I believe.)

http://www.bartertown.com/ - The place to go when looking for like-minded people with models for trade and sale. I just picked up a Forgeworld Warhound Titan for half-off from someone who needed to raise cash for a ring.

Other places of Note:
http://www.warseer.com - Currently about the biggest GW-related forum on the net.

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/ - Space Marines, and high fashion (not really)

http://www.the-waaagh.com - Orks orks orks orks! Jobs a gud'un boss.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/ - They used to be cool. Kinda fallen on hard times.

http://www.the-warforge.com - Ein's modelling and converting site. Totally slipped this into the OP because I could.

And because you need a way to cart all your wonderful new toys around, here are a couple recommendations beyond what you can get from GW:

Sabol Army Transports A little expensive, but I use them exclusively, because of the quite reasonable international shipping price, and mostly for the fact that you can custom cut the foam trays to fit your models. Also available from the War Store, and BattleWagon Bits.

Figures in Comfort A wide range of precut foam trays, and carrying cases for whatever your needs.

    I'll buy it when I see it. At the moment I'm reading the Ciphas Cain Omnibus and I'm waiting for the second Gaunt's Ghost Omnibus to actually get in stores here. Freaking Border's is taking it's sweet time.

    In other news 4th Squad 4th Company of my Dark Angels is ready to have decals applies and 5th squad just got its metallics painted. I also just base coated half an assault squad and highlighted some camo cloaks on some Tanith Ghosts I found discounted at a store. It's been a busy hour.

    So doing a bit more research about Chaos I find out that in the new codex all greater daemons and all lesser daemons are identical. What is this shit GW, I thought we were moving away from that.

    This codex: Daemons I'm hearing about had better rectify this and be compatible with Codex: CSM. This single bit of news has pretty much killed any desire I had to start worshiping Slaanesh again.

    When I get burned on painting I take an hour to play a bit of DoW. Right now I'm playing the campaign with the Light of the Warp mod as IG... Holy fuck do I hate Necrons. Luckily since you have something like 600 max on both squad and vehicle cap I managed to defeat them on that little island by just having a huge meat shield of infantry squads to absorb their attacks, while I built an armored column of the various Leman Russ patterns with super heavy support to drive around their flank and invade their base. It took forever but I finally blasted them. God that mod is cool. It adds a huge amount of units that the armies have in the TT game. Platoon command squads, conscripts, IG allied inquisitors, exterminators, hydras, stuff like that.

    Dark Crusade is so kick ass. I need good mod recommendations though. I've always wanted to find one that actually made it turn based, though I suspect the engine might not be able to handle it. I'd settle for just getting a new campaign map to play on.

    Yeah, Necrons are ridiculously hard for IG players. All the morale breaking stuff, and the general toughness... at least they're slow. As much as I dislike Tau in the tabletop I think their DoW faction is pretty interesting, and challenging to play. I've been enjoying them immensely.

    Yes in normal DoW they are tough, however with this mod the Exterminators just chew threw them. Gotta love twin-linked autocannons.

    For those interested, here's a link to the mod. It's called Light of the Warp Campaign play is fully supported. Also I just found that IG squads with meltas work decently against Necrons.

    You're not using the Zap Brannigan strategy, then.

    Alternately just send a stealthed asassin to spot for a trio of basilisks, and you're good to go.

    Lights of the Warp is to DoW as Apocalypse is to W40k. I am sad right now though, my local GW (74th and Amsterdam) is starting their monthly 40k campaign tonight, but alas, I have to go to a meeting for a special concentration I am interested in D:D: .

    RE: The new Chaos 'dex.

    I feel so bad for some of the traitor legions (not you Iron Warriors players, sit the fuck down), namely the Night Lords. I was watching a really nice guy playing Night Lords just get completely obliterated by gunline Tau. Granted, the guy tried to march in an even line across the board, but still, from what I could tell, they got really hosed =\. Oh well, I lose aspects as troop choices, they lose their fancy-pants rules!

    I love ork players, and the conversions are always spectacular, but the army just doesn't do it for me. I've actually never faced orks across a tabletop before, though my friend (a tau player) trounced a few ork armies pretty thoroughly. It was kind of disappointing, but what are you going to do against AP3 ordnance blasting skimmers, or whatever the fuck gun those hammerheads shoot?

    Not to stereotype (which means I am about to spew out more generalizations than Rush Limbaugh), but you also have to consider the playerbase of SM when you consider signing up for them. In short, a whole lot of 12 year olds, powergamers (this is coming from an eldar player mind you) and people who just went with the flow. I find there is a certain intangible, inimical quality to sm players that makes me not like them (beyond the 3+ save of all their models). Ork players, on the other hand, are generally good natured.

    If I ever know I am going against a Tau player ahead of time, I always field the cheesiest army I can think of. Mostly because of the reasons above. As for the Orks, the general impression I get is that they need some love (not that it matters, Eldar are very well kitted out to deal with lightly armored hordes).

    I was initially dismayed at the generic entries for greater and lesser daemons - but I do see two upsides:

    1) no fanboy 'mine is better than yours' nerd-offs
    2) you are free to invent your own daemons, based on anything you like (crazy scartchbuild ftw). Hell you could field a LatD army using 'counts as' lesser daemon rules

Pictures should be forthcoming when I finish his gun arm, which could take a while due to the fact that I need green stuff to fix the armor plating and a couple gems.

    Hey, nice, when did they drop the price of the GW Catalog to $20? I could actually swing that.

    I maek poast for Dot, also for content.
    I look forward to seeing how the new Codex affects orks, and whether it spawns a whole bunch of new players cos as it is they are horrbly underplayed, despite epitomising what 40k is really about. Brutality and axes.

    I've been wary of getting into 40K, since SM are so overplayed (but still kind of cool) and the Ork Codex was a billion years old. The sneak peak at the possible new Ork codex from the old thread has me interested once again. Maybe a squad of Kommandos will hold me over until the new sculpts come out.

    I bought a box of kommandos a few weeks ago, and picked up a couple of grot blisters to test my paint scheme out on today (along with the old codex).
    I think I'm gonna start them tonight.

    new war trukks would be nice with all these new orks, hell any new ork vehicles, the deth kopta is one of my favourite models, I'd love some new stuff like that.

    i just hope they don't make the orks bigger again. I hadn't looked at the new(old) orks until a few weeks back, and damn if they aren't huge, they stand taller than almost any other models i have. and yes, fine, orks are big and bulky, but they make my space marines look kinda silly and small, not to mention the older ork models.

    I originally got them off of a Japanese site, although I've forgotten the link for it. It had a whole lineup of all the WH and 40K factions, and they've kind of spread around the intraweb.

    I should find the one broom weilder picture from the /tg/ comic using that art style where a Guardian finds a Fire Warrior in the Webway, and whacks him with a broom. Funny stuff.

    If you can find a link that would be sweet.
