  1. Does it need a 2nd edition or just an upgrade/deluxe pack ?
  2. Thanks, this was my question for this game too. The rules aren't 110% clear on that and I was wondering if we were cheating by only adding what we could or if we were cheating by choosing what bits we could add!
  3. I think the Nazis might have a few issues with the claiming of that Totally Meaningless ™
  4. Sorry only started playing today and genuinely thought it was just 1 char per challenge. Make more sense now!
  5. Can you attack with more than 1 character during a challenge? Are their strengths added?
  6. I was told that the 1E was pretty complex, how likely is it that the rules will be available as a PDF on this site? - I want to see how convoluted it is before trying to play it with my GOT loving GF
  7. My birthday was the 15th and i got this the wekend before from my in-laws. I bouht myself unseen forces and it rally does change the game for the better. Theres also the extra red doom cards which can be added to make it mkre difficult too. Well worth getting it if you think that the game is too easy!
  8. So effectively do you count as rolling it even though you know what the result is (due to it being locked) ?
  9. Why then for the 'unseen forces' expansion does that too require 2 sets of each?
  10. OK this is a totally n00b question: when the game shows the ffg sleeves and a colour what is the number for? Eg elder sign has yellow (mini card sleeves)/2 and orange/ (tarot sized card sleeves)/2. My gut instinct is tht it means i need 2 packs of each but Im not sure.
  11. Aye - I'd echo that. Maybe a challenging test (+0) to purify it until the character is happy that it is 'safe' to use. If they fail it may end up giving corruption points or even effecting reputation (running around with 'bad guy' weapons = no no!)
  12. I imagine they fear it physically (ie it has teeth and claws and is going to eat me) but equally it might make the demon ill if it tried to eat it.. I don't think they'd be effected by the warp-somatic effects.
  13. Many thanks - so DH + Ascention (high level stuff) + BoM if I want SoB (at marine like levels)? I realise that SoB won't be as tough/uber/whatever as a deathwatch but I think some diversity is called for. Essentially I was thinking of allowing our resident female gamer to opt to play the NPC callidus assassin that is in the free starter adventures (which is what I'll use for thegroup who may be playing) She has no ties (as inquisor is dead) and as an assassin is'ascended/superhuman/loyal to the imperium. Last question : rules for neural shredder and polymorphine ? Or is it something I have to make up (which I have absolutely no reservation in doing - I just like to use the 'official' stuff if possible )
  14. If I wanted to run say a Callidus assassin alongside a deathwatch group what books do I need - I know Dark Heresy has the rules for assassin acoyltes but what level of assassin would I need to make? Do I need the expansion (ascention I think?) Failing that would a sister of battle be possible (she could bring different skills to the group like religion and inspiration - a bit like a chaplain) What book are the rules for them in?
  15. You could try SARN-FU That's: Squashed - on top of each other or tight conditions 0M Adjacent - what it says on the tin - melee range 0-5M Reach - pistol range/ long melee range 5-15M Near - not melee but some ranged weapons 15-100M Far 100-500M 'Unreachable' 500+ (but some weapons/missiles/etc could reach) So its abstract in that you're in one 'zone' relative to an enemy but not finicky about being .6453 cm off your target
  16. He could be more 'interested' in battle and killing but would still have a personaility. Perhaps looking to cause the most amount of death. (so working with people to kill even moar people!)
  17. Thank you... going to use a uni printer to do it... yes I am truly evil and chaotic!
  18. Well a woman can RP a male space marine. If she wan'ts to play a female character try either an SoB, a veteran inquisitor or assassin or sanctioned psyker. She'd need to be on a power level equivalent to the marines and also bring something to the group that is worth while (probably skills and a 'human' side...)
  19. ItsUncertainWho said: Lion El'Jonson = Christian Bale Fulgrim = Colin Farrell Perturabo = Josh Brolin Jaghatai Khan = Jason Momoa Leman Russ = Viggo Mortensen Rogal Dorn = Stephen Lang Konrad Curze = Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sanguinius = Alexander Skarsgård Ferrus Manus = Javier Bardem Angron = Liev Schreiber Roboute Guilliman = Liam Neeson Mortarion = Geoffrey Rush Magnus the Red = Daniel Day-Lewis Horus = Jon Hamm Lorgar = Paul Bettany Vulkan = Dwayne Johnson Corax = Cillian Murphy Alpharius Omegon = Karl Urban I think that looks pretty good but not sure on Khan and Prturabo though... and you need Denzel for Vulkan... man on fire ... come on! Maybe Hugo Mortesson for Alpharius the whole agent smith thing again...
  20. Its depends if they turn traitor or actually defect... The Marines Malevolent are a bit piranitcal raiding ships for ammunition etc but aren't quite chaos. The Relictors use chaos artifacts to fight chaos and so are delecared as heretics but at the same time fight chaos. There are similar types abound.
  21. You could try some from Hitman games...
  22. He could record 'Time Served in Ordo Xenos' over and over until it filled about the right amount of space in his saga. ie I was a noob I killed orks. I learned sniper rifles bla h blah. newb stories newb (30 years as a marine) stories etc I got promoted I got to use bigger guns I am a wolf man rawr (60 years) etc still telling my story and my record is getting longer (90 years) Time served in Ordo Xenos Time served in Ordo Xenos Purge the Alien (120 yers) Time Served in Ordo Xenos I returned to my clan brothers and killed more orks. (150 years)
