40 OSR? (1.5)

I thought I'd be doing this weekly, but Tales from the Maelstrom forced the hand.

All 40K players reading this who want a sense of how Rogue Trader played - that's first edition of course, not the pure RPG - go have a read of this battle report. Even beyond the RT taster, there are arbites, rebels, alien mercenaries and a criminal mastermind.

I recommend the comments section too - Major Hazzard sums things up very well.

Last week's first full DIY 40K update is here, with plenty more links to fresh ideas.

If you've been following the recent creature features in these parts, like the living table and Humanspace gribblies, Tales have some very suitable miniatures. There are giant slugs here, representing sun worms, and if you're in the mood for winged insects after the cortical hornets today, you might like the waspquito here, used as a psychneuin.

Update: Re more narrative approaches, Warp Signal has put up a thoughtful post.

Just sitting at the computer for a few minutes and then back to the couch. Wanted to say hello and howdy.

Always good to see you. I hope you're feeling better now and doing something fun on the couch. I'm wondering about that Doctor Who too. In fact, I'm thinking about it a lot. It's full of ideas, and has me making connections to Humanspace. Could it get Tim in the mood for a little science fantasy?

Hey Porky - glad the battle report has entertained more than our small circle, and thanks for the follow up links.

@ Jingle Poetry - Do you mean me? Amazing maybe, but it depends how..! I'd like to stay involved and I'm just waiting for the time. I'll drop in a little later today.

@ Colonel Kane - Very much so, and it's my pleasure. There's so much to see and I'm sure it won't be the last time.
