Side note:
While I love brikwars, what I like about the minis is that they can be painted (well lego can too be painted but meh) and I enjoy it. Nowdays I paint more than I play.

The best is to combine mini-modding techniques with minifig painting.

If you get the boxed game, it comes with 2 dvds.
Disk 1 loads up 7.1 gig, then Disk 2 does about 500 meg, weird.


Melee attack uses combos.
Either pressing the right mouse 1,2,3,4 times or
Doing those presses plus the F key for stuns.

As with combo games it takes some time out of combat to practice.
I'm still messing up stuns.

I had a small experiment with 40k and it was the Imperial Guard that I went for. I think I've still got my Tallarn squads packed away somewhere. Before I gave up Warhammer entirely I bought some second hand Space Marines intending to convert them into a custom faction named the 'Windbreakers'. I'd planned on installing extra plumbing to their armour, make custom gas powered weapons & etc; - but then I realised they look ridiculous enough already right out of the box so I didn't bother. :P

This game makes God of War look like a bunch of Weebles.

Been playing for a while, offed a warboss, love the thunder hammer/jump pack combo, and really love the plasma weapons.

My old 40k army was Daemonhunters, but I never had anyone to play against (same problem I run in to with Brikwars, actually) and now the new codex is out and they're all weird. Not sure if there'd even be a place in the new one for all my Inquisitorial Stormtroopers.

If I had unlimited funds, though, I'd totally collect Forgeworld Death Korps of Krieg. They have the best looking armor for their basic troops. I've always liked the great coat/gas mask look, and they carry it off quite well.

Several of my friends from my old college days picked up SM, so maybe we can do some multiplayer; I get the feeling that's where the longevity will be for the game, much like it was for DoW2 until they killed Annihilation matches.

At the battle with the warboss, I entered the room and it was empty.
He wasnt there.
I had to restart the last check point and poof there he was.

It was odd that it didnt start over from the beginning when you died.
Not complaining of course.

Anybody kill the guy at the end yet? I havent.

I died 6 times before I found the key to stop the damn cinematic from playing. Seriously after the first time "the any key" should work.

Its the return key.

I did. Kinda anti-climatic, the ending, in my view. But very 40ksey. Sequel?

You guys noticed that most, if not all W40K games made by Relic end up with Chaos and having to destroy or stop some demon from summoning?
