I have been off blogging of late as my new job/marriage/life have been all consuming. However I have been continueing to play lots of 40k. I have tons of thoughts on the current state of the game and honestly they are a jumbled mess in my head. With OP wraithknights, hordes of scatter bikes, super heavies/gargantuan creatures running amok...I for one miss the company level game I used to play.
With that in mind I have been noodling on some ways around it. A friend of mine and I were talking and we are planning to start playing smaller games. We plan to begin with 1000pts and if that is not quite enough work up to 1250 or maybe even 1500 someday. I have also put together a basic outline of how I would like to play 40k going forward. I am not forcing this on anyone or requiring people to play it. I also am not sitting here saying it is unbreakable and doesn't have its own set of issues. What I am saying is that this is how I want to play right now and this list of rules brings the game to place where I have found I tend to enjoy myself more.
If you like it and want to try it...go for it.
