    Whats everyones opinion on 40k in 40 mins?
    Personally i think its awesome, it allows for a variety of different armies and is great fun. The rules mean nothing overpowered can dominate the game so it comes down to tactics. Its definatly the way 40k should be played.

    *I searched for this topic but nothing came up.

    I think its great aswell, although you can still have Destroyers ( Necrons ) and a Dark Blade ( Chaos ) but either way, they will probably get shot down pre-hand to them being much use. I want to play more of these games but my store only wants to play 1000 point battles :@

    Maby you could use the 40k in 40 mins rule and use a full 1000 points. See how it works out

    I like the rules a lot. It&#39;s perfect for my club, when we often only have an hour or so to play.

    I think its main advantage is that you can purchase some models and test them out, if you are not keen on the feel of the army, you havn&#39;t spent hundreds on a huge army you don&#39;t want to use.

    Tis nice if you&#39;re starting an army, but otherwise... there&#39;s no tactics involved whatsoever, all you gotta do is take close combat troops, assault in turn 1 (cause that&#39;s very possible), and roll some dice =<<_<_<=. Give me 2000+ points battles any day (or 1500, but #2).

    Yeah, I agree totally. I really like the speed of play and being able to trial test, or just plain use units that I normally wouldn&#39;t be able to.

    I&#39;m not sure I really want to paint and play a full sized Tau army, but I&#39;m putting together a 40 In 40 list just to see if I like their style enough to use them.

    On the subject of 40K in 40 Minutes,

    My friends and I have played all the mini-game archtypes (40K in 40 Minutes, 40K in a Flash) with our new armies, and we&#39;ve made a sort of in-between style of 40K called 40K in a Jiffy. It&#39;s a nice medium between larger point games and squad-based > 500pt. games.

    Take a gander at the rules here.

    I know some people are going to find it odd (points-wise and rules-wise), but once you play a few games it really grows on you. Let me know what you think.
    &quot;Arguing online is like winning the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you&#39;re still retarded.&quot;

    It&#39;s the only way I enjoy team battles, in larger points games I hate relying on others, I&#39;ve had some bad experiances with it.
