Logan Plays: 40K
« on: March 14, 2019, 07:52:17 am »
Wow, so, first off, didn't realize this wonderful community had it's own forums! Would've been on here sooner, but bleh.

As well, I started this little lets-play before finding this, so for anyone new, episode 4 on will be where I keep tabs here.

I recently got back into OpenXCOM, and, due to a Yogscast stream of the 40k mod, decided to try it out. I had no idea what I was doing, and, the videos sort of show my ineptness, but the Emperor himself seemed to shine on the Imperial Guard (whom I had chosen entirely accidentally) as they kept getting hit after hit against impossible odds.

If you'd like to take a character, I'll be showing off a list at the end of every episode, for you to claim!

Any suggestions, requests, or all that jazz, hit me up! I'd love to figure out more, and I love the mod. It's currently on IRONMAN, so a fail-state will likely occur. If so? I'll simply restart, with you lads along for the ride!

Welcome to the community! Looking forward to checking out how fare you've gotten in the first couple episodes. I'll check out your list of available recruits when I'm caught up to get a Guardsman to bayonet charge to the front lines.

I would suggest turning off the Ironman option as the mod is work-in-progress and a bug might destroy your campaign before Chaos does.

Edit: Caught up now, and given the large turnover rate it doesn't really matter which soldier I get. Just name one of the sad sods Otto Hartenstein and shove them out the Valkyrie door.

I'll probably turn it off my next run if a bug kills it, but, alright. I'll toss one of the lads Otto and set him off. Hopefully luck'll give him some fame.

We named Otto, got incredibly lucky, and now have a decent bunch of semi-experienced lads.

Episode 5 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hTOWOtWdnQ

I accidentally killed Otto.

Thought it was a good idea to shoot a rocket through all of my troops. It wasn't. Lost about eight men in that mission.

I'm bleeding men incredibly quickly.

Episode 6 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg8tHqJUESo&list=PLpppk5dJcsFjDCKv5mz_4lLCpZlMm1bWw&index=7
We lose a few more men, and aren't as clumsy with the Rocket Launcher this time.. but still quite clumsy.

A horrible forest fight ensures as well.
