The Fast and The Furious

Over on Of Orks, and Ogres there’s a really great post about an interesting variant of 40K.

40K in 40 Minutes

The rules are as follows:

  • 400 Points per side
  • 1+ Troop
  • 0-1 of each other type in the FOC
  • No vehicles with combined armour value of 33 or more
  • No models with 2+ armour saves
  • No models with 3 wounds or more
  • All games are Capture and Control with the intention of playing 7 games in a single day

I think this is a fantastic idea, while Killteam is a fun diversion (even if it’s in denial that it’s basically Necro) I think that 40 in 40 as it shall henceforth be known has more potential and certainly sounds like it will be a more enjoyable playing experience.

Anyway, you can read more about 3mpecee’s preparations, including some excellent background fluff for his Orks here and also how he got on here.
