30k board?
« on: November 4, 2015, 01:01:05 PM »
Maybe with the introduction of Betrayal at Calth from GW there should be a 30k posting board?
Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should.

There would need to a lot more 30K related traffic to justify the creation of a new board.

For now, 30k posts can go into the Non-40k Gaming board.  But as Irisado said, if the amount of traffic justifies a new board, then the game will receive it.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.

Showing my ignorance here but isn't 30K just 40K without the alien races? So shouldn't questions about Space Marines (even if they are older versions) just go in the Space Marine board.

No.  My understanding is that the armies will have different rules, so it could wind up be very confusing for people asking for 30k advice and getting 40k answers.

That is correct. 30K has a whole lot more whizzbang weapons, vehicles, and generally dangerous things going on that would be confusing for people unfamiliar with it.

My LGS showed me some information of Betrayal at Calth, and it looks like it is going to be a board game similar to Space Hulk,  so if that is the case then a new board will most definitely not be needed.

Oh right, cheers for that I thought I had read that you need the 40K rule book to play 30K.

You very may well need it. Yet from what I've read about 30K it includes weapons, units, and technology no longer available so while the basic rules are the same there's new old stuff, as it were, to include.

Wait, are we talking about Betrayal at Calth or all of the Heresy stuff that is coming out of Forgeworld?

To be honest I thought we were talking about 30K because as you rightly pointed out a board game wouldn't need it's own board

30K is more than just the Betrayal at Calth release. FW have lists and battlezone descriptions for a lot more of the Horus Heresy.

I thought we were talking about Betrayal at Calth, specifically, because the 30k stuff from Forgeworld has been out for quite some time and we haven't had anything close to enough traffic for it to get a board.
