Well, this seems like the place for introductions so Iíll go ahead and say hello. Some of you may recognise my handle from some other gameís forumsÖor not.
Anyway, my buddy Achilles (new here as well) bought me the Darkness starter on a whim when he was out west (no store in our area has picked up the game yet). Last night we played 4 games (heís bought all the models so playing 250 point games were no problem
). We had a blast!
I havenít been this excited about picking up a new game in quite a while. I was amazed at how quickly we figured out the mechanics. It was great that by our second game we were starting to use tactics and strategy, not just trying to figure out what to roll and when. My hats off to the designers for putting together a really fun and smooth game that is easy to learn, but challenging to master. It reminds me a lot of Warmachine and Confrontation, but with a dynamic all its own. Iím hoping to play some more games very soon.
Iíll be starting a painting blog soon as Iím psyched to paint the beautiful minis.
Iím looking forward to new models, the hard cover rulebook and whatever else you have in store.
Again, thanks Edge & Cypher for making a great game.
For the rest of ya; greetings!
