I consumed Bioshock Infinite in 4 mammoth sessions, proving that I am a glutton and therefore going to Hell when I die. I think 40k started to pall a bit when we were playing 750 point games at the club and I decided to use Necrons. I have about 1500 points of them and have always wanted to dabble so this was the perfect opportunity. I actually won my first game. I did this by standing there and shooting for 5 turns. And nothing else really. Ok, my scarabs were going to assault something but they all died in turn 1. The point is, I won the game without really doing anything. My opponent conceded in turn 5 because he was so bored. Shooting sucks. Line of sight blocking terrain should be mandatory in every mission set up imho. So, anyway, this being a shooting game and all, I have started to wilt a bit. I decided to build a Necron objective marker to cheer me up.
I was going to do a Necron Warrior laying the smack down on some poor, unsuspecting genestealer. It would be ultimate expression of shooting over close combat.
I think a Ymgarl ripping off a Necron's head sums up my feelings about the 'shooting game' quite well.
