One of my regular OPR opponents is, by his own admission, a 40k fan first and a somewhat reluctant OPR player second. He's recently convinced me to play 40k, a game that I have not played since the Rogue Trader era. All I can say is, thank God for OPR. What a shitshow of websites, downloads, paywalls, apps, jargon and complexity 40k is.
My friend, bless him, has just promised to build my army list because the process to a rookie like me is impenetrable and incomprehensible.
This forum must be full of people for whom the shenanigans associated with 40k are a total turn off.
I know that feeling. I started in 3rd ed 40k and played until 6th ed came out. When 8th ed released is seemed promising but GW quickly fell into their old habits. Thankfully OPR has given me a chance to play 40k/Fantasy again with cleaner rules.
Did you enjoy Warhammer Fantasy? Just want some more advanced rules for your games of AoF:Regiments? Check out my fan-expansion, The Lost World!
Ditto for me, OPR allowed me to bring out my miniatures and take pleasure in playing again, something that has disappeared with 40K, and since then other friends have also been converted and we play together with great pleasure. Thank you OPR
