I don't mind the girl jokes, I'm surrounded by my male family so I'm no stranger to crudeness plus my bf is the most sexist guy I know so I'm not exactly thin skinned :)

I'm so excited, I got my first patch of magnets to make my marines modular! ;) :) :D

Also, I spent about half hour last night trying to work out how to make a unique squad where one guy is in terminator armour with 2 assault cannons and is followed by a personal guard.
In order to get the x2 assault cannons you need the full 10 wolfguard, then the x2 suits of termie armour.
That left me with a termie with x2 wounds, a guard with 2 wounds and then a whole bunch of power armour wounds and shooting and attacks left over.

I guess the bolter attacks could be fluffed into a short barrelled chaingun of sorts, Rapid fire 8.
I was thinking that the power armoured wounds and attacks could be close combat marines or maybe some kind of based auxillery.

If anyone has a clue what I'm on about please lend in a penny :)
Basically trying to to squash a squad into fewer models to represent a badass termie guy with x2 assault cannons and a kind of standard bearer also with a chaingun but keep it so the overall function/math goes the same as the points invested in it.

So essentially a five man squad with the stats of twice their number? Twice as many attacks wounds etc and at the same points cost as 10 man sqaud?

Having a twin Assault Cannon model would look excellent! Although to take the unit youd have to agree it with your opponent (bf!). You could just take a ten man unit and still have both assault cannons on one model? And when each model takes a wound youd have to reduce their stats by half as its the same as having a model die, may be too much to keep track of.

I think one problem with 'doubling up' a unit in that way might be you could take unfair advantage of cover and LoS stuff. Having said that I guess you'd also be extra vunerable to blast and template weapons as in all fairness you'd have to double the number of hits caused...

Edit: Damn, I promised myself I wasn't going to get involved in the 'OMG it's a nice looking girl, post, post, POST!!!' hysteria :) It's just a very interesting idea of how to use 'counts-as'...

Oh, and welcome to the board and all that stuff too.

Eyescrossed, your a bad man, a bad bad bad man for that joke. :lol:

Innocentz, welcome to the boards! Sad to see someone get lost to the Space Wolves, again. ;) (Cue the usual hurl of insults from the Space Wolf players. :P)
Hope you'll enjoy yourself and yes I have to agree with some of the other posters, once you girlies get the hang of the rules theres no hope for us.

My ex-missus got into the hobby almost instantly, i'd come home to find her having basecoated all my marines on the sprue by hand (I'm one of those wierd guys who paints then assembles so I dont have to piss about getting into all the little nooks and crannies.) She started to play and then other interests took over, but she was damn hard to beat what with her womanly intuition!

May you crush your boyfriends Tau into finely chalked plastic.

Looking at this thread makes me glad I am only here for the WIPs.

Hell, according to the fluff, you're more likely to find Superman flying around than a female Space Marine, because whereas the fluff states that geneseed only works in males, it doesn't state that there aren't Kryptonians in the galaxy.

Does anyone else get the feeling that this is a huge trap? I'm not sure how or when, but I have a feeling that this is all gonna turn around very soon...

I'm just saying, I have a hard enough time getting my lady to sit down and rock out some Monopoly or Risk, much less 40k. Tread carefully...


This. Definately. I mean whats with the avatar innocentz? Would a girl have that pic as their avatar? Nah.

-snip-I love the fluff and I love the community. If I never play another game of Warhammer in my life I'll still hang around this forum. It's a great community, and one of the most pleasant forums I frequent. Which says a lot in this day and age, given the sewer many corners of the Internet have become.

Ok time to put this out to pasture. People are starting to get way more off topic and far more crude in their comments and the mods are getting sick of removing stuff that should never have been posted to start with.

So for you regulars, get a hold of yourselves. Just another gamer saying hello in this thread is all you need to treat it as.

Innocentz and any other new comers in this particular thread, welcome to the B&C. Please forgive some of the mouth foamers as there is probably just too much ale in the Wolf forum currently.

To everyone: This is a gaming forum, it shouldn't matter boy-girl-it, so please conduct yourselves appropriately.
