A surprising length of time ago (over 3 years!) I moved from Reading to Cambridge and found myself in need of new fellow gamers. Time passed in a blur, amid some extraordinary life events, and then this Christmas I finally decided to do something about it! What I realised whilst lying on the couch watching Netflix with a fever and suffering a 48 hour bout of food poisoning in the New Year (not a hangover, scout's honour) was that I really wanted to return to my first love; 2nd edition 40k. Now I know that more modern games are probably easier to find support for. Heck, there's multiple gaming groups in my "new" area that cater to them. But I've tried other 40k versions and they just aren't my cup of tea. I like that every phase is different with no over-arching mechanics beyond chuck dice had fondle cards covered with idiosyncratic and incomplete rules!
Anyway, because of where I live vs. where I work and transport arrangements Cambridge city centre gaming is difficult. However, thanks to the Oldhammer forum, I found myself an opponent in similar circumstances. We had our first game at the beginning of March and I'm looking forward to our next in a couple of weeks. Actually playing has got me more motivated than in the last ~20 years! So this wip thread has a dual purpose; keep that motivation going and maybe find some other interested 2nd edition gamers.
Anyway, wordy introduction over. Please feel free to let me know what you think about my long over-due return to 40k after a 10 year flirtation with D&D and too many board games to count (I HATE resource management and block pushers, if it takes more than 10 minutes to explain, its isn't suitable for a casual gaming session!). And if you're near Cambridge and want to join the fun, I'm sure we can work something out.
Dodgy phone pictures taken at dusk follow, will aim to improve. Thanks for reading my wall of text,
The majority of the host as it stands, there's some extra terminators and the motorpool on the shelves above and below.
Blimey, an hour to abandon Google Photos and try Flickr...More to follow when I've got the endurance.
