    A few games of Epic with a buddy of mine.  He was really more interested in the painting than the game, and we were both far too poor to afford to get into it fully, but those few games were really enjoyable.  Saw some seriously awesome setups for a Space Hulk game at a local gaming con that were really cool to watch play out.


    Much respect for the folks that can put that much detail into mini painting - I'd be lucky to get the main colours all in the right places.

    My relationship with War 40k begin in my childhood with a tabletop game called "star quest" in that game 3 squad of space marine fight on a space hulk against an evil overlord.

    Was the '90 i played that game with my father and two cousins.

    That was a simple tabletop, far distant from the experience of the real war 40k background (that i discovered some year later with space hulk game, final liberation, chaos gate and all the THQ era game).

    Star quest was an early version of the war 40k (2nd editon or rogue trade era I can't remember), But the identity and the visual strentgh of war 40k was so strong that create an unique inprint in my young child mind: I never forgotten that game and the play session with my family!


    So the result is that when i play any war 40k  game I still have all the joy and happines of a 10 year boy that play with some plastic (awesome) little space marine!!

    Warhammer 40k Dawn of War


    Walk softly, and carry a big gun

    What more can be said then this simple quote.

    It is better to die for the Emperor than to live for yourself.

    My absolute favourite moment comes from a bunch of years back playing the table-top game. I was a avid Space Marine player back then and i taking part in a campaign. A series of poor games had put me far out of touch with my allies and low on reinforcements. So i started the game on a 25% handicap. Fortunatley i had managed to save a whirlwind launcher the previous round and i had a veteran Deathwing squad as reserves. My opposition was Orcs and this opponent simply tried to do a murderball right in to my lines. Things looked bleak as the green horde pushed in. I tried to call down my reserves but failed the roll twice. Third round my Terminators came down like the fury of a angry god, carving a path through the Orcs. Alas it was to little to late, in the end it was a single squad of Marines atop a small altar trying to fend off a sea of green. I lost that game and was eliminated from the campaign, but by the seven hells that was the way to go out. It was down right cinematic.


    I really should dust off my old army and have a look at it.

    Honestly? Seeing this game announced. The original Warhammer MMO I fell in love with when it was in beta. The massive pvp and abundance of races and classes has me extremely excited. Lets not forget the WAAAAGH.
    I got addicted to streaming. You can check it out by searching "JakeSimTV". I'd post a link but it shows my channel embedded.

    My favorite warhammer 40k moment must be the finale in vanilla DoW2 - just trying to break through the Tyranid swarm with my Force Commander (Lazarus, since he is immortal), having Avitus and Cyrus covering my hide while Thaddeus strikes from above. The result - countless decomposing, acidic corpses of Xeno filth and a few fallen battle brothers, their husks handled with honor and respect by chapter's Apothecaries...


    Success is commemorated. Failure merely remembered.

    My favorite moment was during a battle between my Blood Angels and some Eldar. My force was splintered, and a rampaging Avatar was threatening my key units. It had to be stopped. Realising what they must do, Lemartes led the Death Company into the fray. Shuriken fire reduced their numbers, and the Avatar cut down all but Lemartes. Enraged, Lemartes managed to wound the Avatar, stunning it. Both were down to one wound. Taking advantage of the Avatar's reduced speed, he struck, and the Avatar failed his save. With the death of their leader, the eldar fled from the fight. The Blood Angels had emerged victorious.

    My favorite Warhammer 40k Moment would have to be in Dawn of War SoulStorm while playing as the Imperial Guard. I had set up a massive killbox zone. A friend was playing as the Tau and had used their XV-88 Broadsides to aid my kill box. A third and fourth friend were playing Dark Eldar and Chaos. They came at us in force but never got past the third wall of guardsmen. Persistent bodies was on, and there was just a sea of enemy bodies stretching across a huge section of the map. Was true carnage. We even managed to fight them back and win.

    I am not sure how well this qualifies to this thread but for me it was a high.  I made 12 armor saves in a row which had only a 2 in 6 chance to make.  It was really exciting to watch!  Naturally I failed the 13th roll and died.  Still...

    My favourite Warhammer 40k experience is when im playing Warhammer 40k Space Marines with friends on my side it gives me a lots of fun and other positive emotions =)
  • ThovaronThovaron LagunillaPosts: 1Member
    Favorite experience was the first time playing a Warhammer 40K game, Space marines, was blown away with the sheer power a Space Marine had, and the way they could handle hordes of enemies, been reading on their history since then, Can't wait to start the Eternal Crusade!!!!
  • epoqepoq Richmond, VAPosts: 228Member Uncommon
    playing that OP Bright Wizard in Warhammer Online.  Probably one of the most legitimately overpowered MMO classes I can remember.

    (I'm from Ukraine so sorry for my english) I'm a big fan of Warhammer I have a lot of games and books, so I'm looking forward to eternal crusade! My favorite game its "Warhammer 40k: space marine" i enjoy many hours of gameplay.I already know of at least 4 of my friends waiting for this amazing game. (I will definitely play for chaos). I expect most of the Warhammer atmosphere of grandeur, gloom and cruelty ... but it is also a kind of beauty and naturally want to have fun with friends and other players.

    My favorite experience is not actually from playing the game, but from painting the miniatures.  I remember being in awe of the painting skill of Mike McVey, and I still am.  I wanted to paint like that, I bought the books, read the guides and ended up painting quite a few armies.  Due to medical reasons, I am no longer able to paint, but the art and story of Warhammer 40k is still a favorite of mine.  I will probably be terrible at Eternal Crusade but I cannot wait to step in and explore the world.

    Made a squad of harlequin fighters led by a Librarian (from a standard pool of points), as an infiltrator squad. When others saw them before the game, they said I can't play them, they too overpowered :)

    I was killing this guy on the table top after he had spent most of the day trash talking me. In the end it was him and I playing head to head to goto the next round. It was to the point it was clear he was going to lose and he tried to pull an attack but was short on range but tried to cheat that it was within the 6 inches his unit could attack. I called him on it and lots of people watching started laughing at him so he got mad and said you want 6 inches I will give you 6 inches and thrusted his man part (still wearing clothing) into the table and knocked everything over on the table and well lost. He stormed out not even collecting his army. Have not seen him since. Didnt bother anyone as he normally smelt really bad. lol

    My favorite moment was destroying a Tyranid army that was fielded by a friend of mine. I enjoyed it so much because he trash talked my Eldar so i got to show him the might of the bloody handed god.

    I can't really single out one being my best experience, there were so many noteworthy tabletop experiences my old player group still laughs about!


    Every time I played a friend of mine in the tabletop he played Khârn the Betrayer with his chaos army. Out of about 20 games Khârn never got to swing his mighty Gorechild even once. He constantly got stuck on even the tiniest heavy terrain every game the whole game. "Blood for the Blood God!" "Well... maybe tomorrow Khârn..."


    One game I tried to pop a friends Leman Russ with my Tau Hammerhead. Even with constant laser markers, my Hammerhead seemed to lack any commitment that day and the crew didn't even hit once in 6 rounds on a 2+ roll... that was indeed a sad day for the Tau Empire...


    The day I introduced a friend of mine into our WH40k group he got to play Space Marines in a ridiculously bloody match of capture the hill with 4 players free for all. In the very last round my Swooping Hawks unexpectedly secured the hill from a rampaging Hive Tyrant with their aerial grenades, as he simply walked up with his last surviving stoic Hero of Mankind with his flamer at the ready and obliberated my full squad of Hawks who were just about to secure the objective for my cause. I can still hear the wailing of their lost souls to this day...

    My favorite Warhammer 40k experience was when I finished painting my Space Wolves army and got them on the tabletop for the first time.  They lost- but they looked fantastic!
