    just don't send it from a hotmail address, (according to the FB page) it'll get zapped by their spam filter.

    Has anyone tried the Imperial Guard in the beta? I really like that AT-ST walker unit (can't remember the name at the moment). i'm also loving the whole red army/communist feel of the faction and units. reminds me of the Eastern Fronts mod from COH.

    It's a Sentinel. :)

    Imperial Guard were based on the Russian army in World War II. It's where they got the idea from. Most of the species in 40k are based on a real life inspiration.

    Yes, they're based entirely off my Big Happy self *glares through the monitor Resident Evil: Apocolypse style*

    Turning from the light of The Emperor will cause the Inquisition to look disprovingly towards thy meat and two veg sir... they may have to be removed in a sacrafical ceremony.

    although saying that... the Beta was quite fun. Heavy Bolter noise is once against music to the ears of a fruitcake like me

    Until DOW returns to base building and mass units requireing micro management i see no point in buying dow2 expansions same thing just re-skinned.

    A few squads is not 40k.

    Thing is though from a story point it really is most of the literature rather than rule books or codex focus on small numbers of squads, and reflecting that the single player since 2 develops much more story

    I do agree that the multi feels a little restrictive though

    I've fired up the beta a couple of times only so far... the low number of units was surprising.

    As SM, I could field a Techmarine, 1 x Scout squad, 2 x Tactical squad, 1 x HP Dev squad and a Land Raider. Not a huge force to be honest...

    space marines revolve around quality as opposed to quantity. the have the most durable units that deal some nasty damage.

    i personally love using apothecary with 2 scouts and a tac marine squad. add a devastator after some time then i get a dreadnaught and finish the game XD


    btw. theres a new patch

    You DO realise there's an entire campaign for each race in the new game, right? Plus new Last Stand map/heroes? Plus the multiplayer has been redesigned to a more hybrid game.

    Oh, and clearly you've not been 40king for some time ;) Kill Team anyone? Even a 1,500 point game isn't more than a few squads these days.
