Now in 40K there are a lot of rules, some of those rules do not make any sense what so ever. See I like to play as if it was a real wargame. I do not play with points and I really do not care about fairness. Why you might ask, I'll tell you why? War is never fair and is never equal. Plus I am more able to see who is the better strategist. Anyways I will never play at a tournament. I also do not limit the size of my terrain and I play on whatever terrain is there. If we are playing at my house you will have to cross a large city to reach my men who are all in trenches. If we go to your house I would play on whatever you want me to.
Do you guys/gals follow all the rules? If not please tell us which ones and why. Also I did not trully know where to put this topic so I stuck it here. If it is in the wrong place please correct my mistake and move it, Thank You.
That what those senarios are for. The one where your opponet has double your points. People fight uneven battles all the time. Along with the modified FoC, people can acheve whatever they desire using the senarios in the BRB.My regular opponent an I do it all the time.
depending on who my oponent is ill use points but most of the time i just play my bro and he prefers to play with all of the army we have which means a lot of men and vehicles in the game
i do somehow think that this is in the wrong place as it is to do with all of 40k not just guard
by open do you mean allowing deep strike and infiltration those sort of rules?
and i know what you mean about the points i normally have a smal army that gets wiped out by 1 tank or will sometimes use the terain to my advantage making the game more strategic well untill i get my army close enough to ripe my opponent to shreads
but thats my opinion
We usally dont even play a senario. We play "Kill 'em all". Sometimes we argree, due to fluff for the day, that we should play unevan battle. Thats all.
Generally I fiddle around with the rules for friendly games. We often try to make it as fair point wise as possible, but I've had quite a bit of fun running people over with an outnumbering Space wolf list. I technicly lost that game (since my "objective" was to get off the board) But having killed every guard unit on the board and a good half the Tau, I was proud of my puppies anyway.
Rules are fine but I'm really in this for the fun more than rules lawyering, so if points and stuff are suspended, I have no poblem with that, especially since I seem to have more points than all of my gaming buddies combined. Damn their slow painting and assembling.

I do that alot against my freind. I Take my little 1200 point SM army, and go up against his 3500 point Eldar army. For me, its not about winning (because there is bascially no way I can), it is all about taking out as many of his troops as I can before I die. We play on his 20x15 basement floor with lots of terrain such as couches. It was alot of fun, and then when my SM got crushed, we then switched teams and played again. Then, whoever scored the most amount of damage to the enemy is the winner. It is a really fun way of playing.. half the time we foget about the official rules (screw instant death!)
I play my 40k with friendly fire.
Finally fixed the link!
I am a real rules nazi myself.
However, I really appreciate the custom games and house rules even when they are completely one sided.
When I started playing. We just played Anihalation with all special rules allowed. After this got boring, I played more scenarios and with different gaming groups.
Now Im at the stage where I am happy to play any rule set. Even house rules where I really dont stand a chance... I will however, return the favour when my friends come to my house.
Being a rules nazi, there is one rule that over rides them all... Page 5 of The BGB, titled the most important rule: Have fun (Im sure GW will forgive me for this slight breach of copyright... its paraphrased anyway).
It's worth a krak!
Well, WH40k is a game and a game has rules, so playing the game means obeying its rules so that the game works. Luckily, this game has many varyities to it, so you can fight uneaven battles (pointswise) but with the possibility for any player to succeed.
If someone likes to play battles like in real life they should keep in mind that a game will never be like real life, so playing it as it would means you don't play the game.
After all, WH40k only works because of the point value system (both for the game and GWs economic wealth), so why trying to get around this.
Plus, the barrier to have a limit in points makes the disicion what to take more difficult as you have to limit yourself as well as the possibility, hence giving you the difficult task to work out a decent list even without being able to get everything you wanted. This is where the strategy comes in, and i must say, its more likely to play a strategic game this way than being able to take anything as long as you money will last.
Additionaly, talking of real life, any army or group consists of leaders and those who are lead. In GW terms, this means you have to select 1 HQ and troop choices. The rest is mostly up to you, so basicly you could create an army "like in real life".
Anyway, since when does a commander of an army(section) does anything he want, even if the resources would allow it (which is rarly the case)?
