while me and my friends love to play warhammer, the setup time and actual getting ready of the whole game is starting to take us upwards of 2 hours
so weve decided well just play the warhammer in 40 minutes games a lot more instead. I normally play nids and or blood angels, but recently picked up the demonhunters codex and am really starting to like them as well.
I was wondering if you all could give me a hand in picking out a good force to start up with for the 500pts that the wh in 40 minutes allows. - ive never used DH in any table games so its always different just doing it on paper, than what it is on the field.
thanks in advance for any help
500 points huh... mm I don't know the rules to 40k in 40 minutes but ere goes.
Well, To squeeze the most out of your troops you could take.
A BC with psycannon (Brother Captain)
Two Squads of 10 Storm Troopers (Two plasma guns in each squad)
And a Dread. (Lascannon&CC/Incin)
That gives you plenty of firepower with some spare space to equip your guys.
Inquisitor Lord (Psycannon/CC Weapon) with SageX2 (Allows a reroll to hit) and Warrior (Plasma Cannon)
Three Squads of 10 Storm Troopers (Two plasma guns in each squad)
For Pure GKs.
A very tiny army coming in at 11 models...
1 BC (with psycannon and Word)
Two squads of 5 GKs, each with two Psycannons.
You can put out however 15 AP4 Str6 shots at 36" range.. just hope the enemy doesn' bring a tank hehe.
I didn't include any transports for the Stormtroops as I figure you'll be playing on a small board and it won't be that much of an issue but just in case...
I like this one particularly.
1 BC (Psycannon)
Two squads of Stormtroopers (Two plasma guns each) each mounted in a Chim (With heavy bolter sponsons)
Thats 12 Heavy Bolter shots, 6 Multilaser shots plus the actual firepower the troops will dish out (including four-eight Plasma shots)
But if you figure your going to face Tanks you could always switch out the plasma guns for melta guns..
Im sure 40k in 40 mins is only 400pts correct me if im wrong though.
Yea, 40K in 40 Minutes is a 400pt game, and has restrictions on the armor values and saves allowed so the game goes faster.
40K in a Flash is the 500pt version, that one has no restrictions on what you field.
get 50 stormtroopers, no special weapons. lol :lol:
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
I was about to say you need a Hq but hay you dont because the 40k in 40 mins compulsary choise is just 1 troop choise. Youd need alot of real money to do that though.
Guys guys guys...
40k in 40 Minutes and 40k in a flash are two very different games.
Go read the rules in Black Gabo issue #4 for 40k in a flash
40k in 40 minutes are as follows.
No 3 wound guys
NO 2+ saves (no termies)
no armor 34 points or more (no DN)
400 points max, only 1 troop required i think
40k in a flash allows armor (200 points worth) but all the rest are similiar and 500 points instead of 400.
I played 4, 40k in flash games this weekend against Eldar and Tau (2 each) and won both games. I used 10 Grey Knights with 2 psycannons (ap 4 baby) and a DN.
I kicked ass!
