So I want to play tabletop...

    Just popping in here quick to ask a few ?'s.
    I got my friend to play EC but he's a huge Grey Knights fan and now he's getting into TT more and more. He wants me to get into it but I told him it was expensive. The hobby stores in my town don't even carry 40k because they hate GW's business model with their prices and all. Plus I don't think 40k is very popular around these parts and it would just sit on the shelves. Anyways, I don't think he's going to drop it so can I ask just what do you need to play an actual 1000 point game? Aside from minis, I'm sure there are rule books and stuff.

  2. Rulebook, Codex for the Faction you wish to play, and some representatives of the models and units you wish to field.
    As for 1000pts, that depends on the codex. Some forces have basic units worth only low double-digit points, whilst other can have basic units worth hundreds of points.

    You could always buy one of the Boardgames for 40K GW have been doing. You get plenty of models at a reduced price, plus some form of game to try them out in.

    To add to that, GKs are one of the most points intensive armies in the game. They're very strong per model and have a lot of cheese tactics that basically only get out cheesed by the various Lords of War running around now..

    Looking at you Tau... That can outshoot an Emperor Class Titan....

    You can try to buy models second hand for a massive price reduction at various online markets. One I've heard good things about (and is where I would want to sell my CSM and LSM armies) is Bartertown. You buy / sell there, and even trade things for armies inc other armies which is nice. So for example you have a collection of MTG cards or something, you can offer it up for an army and someone may start to negotiate with you.

    It's a neat system.

  4. Actually there is a way to outdo Grey Knights.
    Take a detachment of Sisters Of Silence as allies, a Culexus Assassin, or even the forthcoming Inquisitor Greyfax. Each of these have ways to mess with Psykers like GK.
