Maybe, but if the team started off weak to begin with and relied upon removing players from the pitch to get decent stat lines? I dunno. Havent thought about it at all, i just like the tought of having something actually different :)

Itchen Masack, no, it's valid, as it's a good thought process. Without anything like that, there is no creativity.

Awesome, that joke should be in the rulebook. Really good. PMSL :lol:

No, no and no - add one 40k race and you open the door for all the others - next thing you know it's Space Marines vs Eldar.
Just no.



Would love a Fimir team.



Ok, Fimir would be happy.

'Nids would be fun as well. I don't see Space Marines working, and Eldar seem like they'd be indistinguishable from the four current elf teams. Same goes for Orks, and every kind of human. And I honestly don't see Tau or Necrons being anything interesting either.

Really, 'Nids are the only 40k race that I'd be excited about (maybe Genestealer cults).

It was only when someone else mentioned it that I could see perhaps a "Bugs" fantasy version of the Nids.

I think there is too much focus on their single eye with the Fimir teams I have seen.

in 3rd edition the normal warriors had BS3 which was average. They did have a dislike for sunshine without their covering mist, so maybe something like mass bonehead/really stupid to reflect that?

Mass Bonehead, good thinking, but can you imagine! I can see me having a hilarious game with bad rolls and my team just stood there all day!

I'd like a mass wild animal team, something like vampires with 0-6 players with good stats and skills but hampered by wild animal and the rest being scrubs. Kind of like the way vampires are.

If you want to try Mass Wild Animal, try the original Apes of Wrath roster.

0-16 Lineape 6337 extra hands G/ASP 50k
0-2 Orangutan 5338 extra hands, strong arm, big hand GP/AS 70k
0-2 Chimpanzee 7337 extra hands, fend GA/SP 80k
0-4 Gorilla 5428 extra hands, grab, wild animal GS/AP 80k
0-1 Silverback 5519 loner, extra hands, grab, mighty blow, wild animal S/GAP 140k
Rerolls 60k

You may not be a fan after playing with it. WA on 5 players is harsh.

Someone mentioned a Team Templates (Pirates, Savages, Cheater, etc) so "Wild" would be a good thing to add to that. Some sort of Handler in the team perhaps, you could have Wild wood Elves with a choice of certain creatures as well, the same with Orcs, but different creatures that they'd use. That's a good one.

Ah, the old Strigoi? I assume you are French as that's a French word. Nice little concept.
