Warren and Darrell get to grips with what you’re going to need to know when playing a game of Warhammer 40K 6th Edition.
Check out the Gothic Ruins from the Battlefield in a Box Range:
Finally this week is on its way ! YAY! thanks guys for putting up all the work and dedication for all there is yet to come ^^. Rock on !
btw ..you should be careful when swinging around that huge and heavy rulebook over a table full of miniatures …if it slips out of your hand …..the HORROR !
It all seems pretty basic
Might seem somewhat pedantic to most viewers, but there really isn’t anything like this on youtube. You’d be surprised how useful this video will be for someone whose doing the basic legwork—someone who’s interested, but knows nothing about the hobby. Hats off BoW, lets hope this is the right video for the right person.
“there are many different space marine races you can ha , like necrons !!!”
Look forward tot he rest of this weeks updates! Keep up the good work!
Or D. You’re just a big fan of Beasts of War and just watch every vid they bring out… Especially the 40k ones.
Not what I expected but a worthwhile addition, as mention not much coverage along these lines.
A few constructive points – While this gives a good overview it possibly struggles in trying to do too much in one video. Also you almost go into detail at points and it would be worthwhile mentioning support available via shops and clubs.
A video on getting started with terrain – right from a blanket over books etc to basic scenary would a good.
A breakdown of different armies, strengths/weaknesses, starting points with pros/cons of different HQs/troops would be a great project for the future. Maybe sample 500 point lists – I am sure the forums could help out.
Also a general intro into picking a game would amazing.
Looking forward to the rest of the coverage
Really nice to see something being done for complete novices without a sales pitch added in. Also the biggest part of a game that barely gets a mention the Meta game., A Game in itself.
Nice Job There needs to be more videos here aimed at the new person at a level that doesnt require a long history in war gaming, to gain something from watching it…
Very nice, but I have to disagree with Grey Knights as a good starting force. One of the main reasons (at least I’ve seen a lot locally) is the sheer animosity given to them if it isn’t an all inquisitorial army. I had problems with friends who were trying to get into the game against another new player who has an all terminator army (and 1 dread). Yes they can be somewhat easy to paint with just a metal base, but having an opponent who wants to play you to stomp you deep into the ground can be irksome to a new player who just spent $300-$400 on an army.
That said, Orks can be very fun to learn and play for beginners *grins like a greedy bad moon*
I’ve been wanting to start 40k for several years and this year is the year to do it! I’m so happy to find your series to help get me started. Thanks for all the hard work producing these for us newbies.
I’ve been playing 40k for the best part of 12 years and am still overwhelmed by how much I have to buy!
