When I first started this hobby many many years ago, my buddy who introduced me to 40k had this little rule that we used to make it easier for me to make a list as a beginner. We use to call it the three point rule, where you were able to take three points above the selected agreed points level!
We used this rule for about six months, and then we dropped it and made way for not being able to go over the points value selected! From then on, I have never played a list that has been over on points and have never really thought about it, but reflecting on the three point rule now, what would you say if your opponent was a few points over the agreed limit?
Obviously, I wouldn't expect anyone to be over the points in a tournament environment, but how about in a pick up game or a game with your buddies? Would you mind your opponent being a few points over? How would you deal with it? Not play them? Get them to drop a piece of wargear? Take something in your list to take you to the same points? Or wouldn't you be bothered and just play?
Ever wanted to know more about me? Have you got a specific question you would like to know the answer too? Hobby related or not, I would love to hear from you with a question for me to answer on my Q&A series that I do on my YouTube Channel
Lots of work done on my third unit of 13th Company Grey Hunters. Most of the base coats and washes are down and it's now time to start highlighting. I love how this unit is starting to look, so many cool poses even if I do say so myself!
Battle report of my first game with the Space Wolves, and I am up against my sons new Dark Angels army. We used this first 1k game build up to motivate us to get our armies painted. Neither of us are using optimal use of the points, as I think I could have got another unit of Grey Hunters in the army if I didn't take Blackmain and so many wargear options! Still, it was all about seeing our new armies on the table and having fun, enjoy...
OK, proud dad moment! Here are a few pictures of my twelve year old sons new Dark Angels army from a recent game we had. I think he did a fantastic job on them and I can see how well his painting has improved over the last few years compared to his Vanilla Marines. He has painted one thousand points so far to match my Space Wolves army and these pictures are from our very first game with the two new armies. Battle report to follow soon...
