Now that you guys remind me of it, I'll probably get a Genestealer Cult warband for this too.  I wanted that army when it came out but just didn't have the time/space to get a whole one then.  This will be perfect.  Maybe I'll just get the Deathwatch: Overkill box and build one of them and a Deatchwatch Kill Team too. 

Just as an FYI, normal space marines or Deathwatch marines can't be used in a normal game of Shadow War. If you select marines, your team will consist of scouts. You can spend a promethium cache to higher a special operative. This would allow you to use one Deathwatch marine for one game.

Thanks for the heads up on that.  It is probably worth buying the game either way. You get about $160 worth of Genestealer models plus the Aberrants with it so it is worth buying even without the Marines, but that does mean I'll have to think of someone to fight them.  Fortunately I have plenty of other stuff lying around and my buddy has a BA army with lots of scouts.

 Huh?

I have no idea what you guys are talking about!   Hypno

Explain it to me slowly, please.

It looks vaguely 40K meets Starguard...

Put simply, it is Necromunda rules with 40k figures.   It has a campaign system but it is simpler than that contained in Necromunda.  Unlike 40k, the rulebook contains stats and points for various units.

It was a boxed set that quickly sold out, but a 200+ page $40 hardback rulebook is coming (preorder on the 22nd) that will have the information in the original boxed set rulebook plus additional factions and content.

I'm going with Alpha Legion using mostly Mk3 & Mk4 armour with some non skulled/spiked 40k era chaos marine amour mixed in. Plus some cultists of course. Thinking along the lines that this group of AL fled to the eye of terror after Horus was killed. But time hasn't moved much for them. 10k years later and now they are back. But I am still going with the HH era paint scheme just more beat up.

I also plan on doing an Inqusitor team when the rules come out. Most of that has been painted already.

Tempted to do some of those new Steampunk GW dwarfs as IG.

Otherwise Marines, Skitarii or IG.  Or Inquisition.  Or Eldar. Or... ah dammit!

I have some of the really old metal Space marine Scouts with the mohawks.  I can use them as rookies scouts along with regular Scouts. Should work out well, you can certainly tell them apart. I think I'll use Crimson Fists.

I also have the Imperial Guard Steel Legion. So many choices......

"For The Emperor!".

Probably Alpha legion.

Mine are mainly standard plastic marines with the odd chaos bits.

I'll most likely be playing a genestealer cult, but with some of the excellent hyborks rather than humans (or perhaps a mixed cult of human and ork hybrids - both would be fitting for Armageddon!).

If not them, then probably Harlequin as I have recently pulled a bunch of my old metals out of storage.

I have enough Harlequins to do a nice Kill Team with too.  They haven't seen much action except as allies of the Dark Eldar and once or twice my small Eldar force.  In Shadow War they will be getting some mileage.

Actually thinking of all the forces I have in 40K/30K I could probably put together a decent campaign night for a half dozen people or more with just what I have right now: Chaos cultists, Harlequins, Dark Eldar, Eldar, Space Marine scouts, Orks and Inquisition forces, as well as the Guard troops I have.  There could even be a few rival Chaos cults.  We could probably do a thing similar to the Path to Glory campaign from fantasy years back.

It certainly won't take many Harlequins to make a team.
