Never played ANY RPG before. Was always interested, but never had the time. Painted up a whole Tyranid and space vampires army, but never played, only paint and read the fluff. Realised What I wanted was not to bash 2 armies together, but to immerse myself in the universe.
Anyway, don't know, or want to know any gaming groups yet for Deathwatch. It's only me and my wife playing. We're closet nerds, and no one else we know are interested in this sort of thing. (Not too sure if my wife is interested either, TBH, or just doing it to keep me happy, but she plays castlevania a lot)
Anyway, I have Mythic GM-Emulator and Deathwatch (plus the errata), and First Founding. Since I have so many miniatures painted, what I thought I'll do is focus heavily on the combat/mission part of the game. Going to get a spaceship tileset to play spacehulk sort of missions, and do up plasticard buildings to play in open areas. I have a billion tyranid figures painted up.
Wife is playing Raven Guard assault marine (Bought the figure off forgeworld), so she'll be playing a non-Mary Sue character, as Raven Guard are famed for being selfish. I'm playing spess vampire Techmarine, with servitors friends (later on). Not too sure how to make such a character non Mary-Sueish though. I was thinking of making him something of an insane self-destructive rager. Whenever he's angry, he takes it out on the RG, or his own sevitors, literally fighting and beating them up, or tearing off his servo-arm/replacement arms. Seems a bit Mary-sueish though.
I was thinking of starting the first session with character creation with my wife, use mythic to work out some sort of story, which will end up in the kill-team going somewhere on a mission. Then I'll draw up the maps, objectives, etc on my own. Second session will be played on a board, with the marines fighting, killing enemies etc. If it was to get to a certain building, etc, the 3rd session will be fought out in the building, then the subsequent session will just be dialogue using Mythic, post-mission, which will lead them to another place to fight more people.
Anything missing? Am I doing it right?
