40K 8E – First Game

It’s been out for a couple of months now, at this point, but I’ve only just now gotten to playing a game of 8E.

Scott (who has a blog, but I can’t remember the name) was kind enough to run  me through a quick game to help me see how it plays.


It seemed alright.  The mechanics of it kind of hummed along, but referencing the rules was a fucking goddamned nightmare.  Flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip flip.  I hate the Warscroll format.

Otherwise, it was OK.  I’m not afire with a need to build a new army for it, and I’m not likely to update anything especially for 8E (especially given that Dark Angels and Khornate Daemons are still in Index-mod), but I won’t turn down a casual game of it.
