First Game points guideline

Post  Shavaar on Fri Feb 22, 2013 1:34 pm

I already introduced myself a while back but haven't had a chance to play a game of sixth edition. What is a general points guide for someone like me who hasn't played sixth yet? I hope to play sometime in the not too distant future but I just can't seem to schedule a time. I seem to have plenty of time to mess around with different army types; Battlescribe seems to work "Very well" with my necrons. It is available for PC and Ipod4.
So, how many points for a first "training" game?

I'd recommend 1000. It lets things move quickly enough while still feeling like a "real" game .

Once youre comfortable, just start adding points, the usual here is anything from 1500-2000.

750-1000 is a great starting point for figuring out the game, especially so given that it forces a lot of point considerations early on which will be useful when figuring out what you can slip into a list at higher point values.

The average game around here sits at the 1500 point mark.

/agree

about 1000 gets you enough units to understand the mechanics of strategy and list building. Most games that I have seen in 6th are at 1500.
