So, this was floating around on another forum earlier this week and it got me a little curious... did anyone try playing by the movie marines rules that were in WD300? I understand that they were presented in a fairly tongue in cheek manner, but that hardly means it wouldn't be interesting to try out. For those interested, you can find the rules posted on the German website. Using babel fish or google to translate gives you a... mostly comprehensible translation.
You play your game, I'll play mine.
Yeah, I played with those rules a couple of times. They can be fun, but it's probably something that you only want to do once, as they're so stupidly overpowered that it gets boring to use them pretty quick.
The stunt doubles rule is pretty awesome. I wanted to try playing with them but my friend wouldn't let me.
Ask me something about Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.
We did that last Memorial Day.
We had 2 people playing 1 squad each of the Movie Marines. However, we did modify the rule set to allow one of those squads to be Grey Knights.
Then we had 2 more people field 1D6 units of Chaos every turn. It didn't matter what they were, Landraiders, Demon Princes, Obliterators whatever.
After 3 hours of the Movie Marines sitting in the enemy deployment zone, killing everything that came on the board, as it came on the board, the Chaos players got fed up and quit.
