What Do I Want Out of 40K?
Earlier today Fritz 40K, posted a question: "What do you want out of 40K?" Basically, outside of a tournament or league environment what do you want out of the game? He has some thoughts on that and here are mine.
1. I want to be able to immerse myself into the universe of 40K. It is one of the reasons why I get cheesed off some times and why I started to combine all club member games into the Midas Crusade. I love the universe of the game, often more than the game itself, and I want to feel that I'm taking a part in it. Even if I do lose more often than not.
2. I want to play games against people who aren't twinky powergamers or list optimizers. I don't get any enjoyment out of a game like that. Simple and fun games is where it is at where the game can swing back and forth before the end.
3. Missions. There is a reason that Battle Missions is my favourite sourcebook for 40K. The missions in the rulebook are basic and quite dull if I am honest. What you get from Battle Missions is a nice mix of possible engagements that may be slightly unfair to one side or the other but make for a far more interesting and enjoyable game.
4. Small games. I hate Apocalypse size games with a passion. Played them and just got bored. Give me a game between 1000pt and 1750pts and I'm happy.
