Have you ever thought to yourself, that you'd like to play out some of the stories of characters like John Grammiticus, or of some of the Alpha Legion operatives? Warhammer 30,000 may not work very well for this, but there is a game that does...
Games Workshop have recently re-released Rogue Trader, which I was lucky enough to have obtained during a recent trip with the other Bunnies to Warhammer World in Nottingham. The rules in the book are perfect for fully customising your character of choice, including not only their wargear, but also their stat line. All of this comes at a points cost, but you could spend a good few upping the stats and adding in psychic abilities.
Why not add in Damon Prytanis? Again, you could up the stats and give him his Shuriken weapons. You could then re-play their flight from the soldiers of Macragge, or make up your own stories about them! It could also be used like a role-play game, if you enjoy those.
Do you like the idea of playing the 'smaller' characters of the Horus Heresy? Do you think you will use Rogue Trader to do it? Will you use another game system to play these stories out?
I'm looking forward to playing this, in the wonderful setting of the 31st Millenium. Let us know if you will be giving this a go, or if you already do something similar.
Stick to the shadows,
