Looking to get into 30k, but have no clue where to start
« on: September 02, 2017, 11:30:13 PM »
Hello everyone, so jumping straight to the point of this post, I am looking to get into 30k, but literally have no clue where to start looking. I love the look and theme of the heresy era and would love to run a Dark Angels army in 30k, but I have not a clue where to get the rules for these models.

I have asked around my local gw, everyone points me in the direction of the Betrayal at Calth box as a solid starting point. Which looks like a very promising box set. Again however I do not know where to get the rules for the 30k models.

Looking at forge world there appears to be two types of books, the red books and the black books, what is the difference between the two? Subsequently which has the model rules I need?

Sorry for no one responding to you for this.  Not sure if you still need the info, or you've moved on.  You need the Legion Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List book and the Legion Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions rules. They are two red books.  The red books are basically just rules and nothing else. The black books have a lot of fluff and stuff written into them, and contain a lot of the different playable campaigns plus the rules for different legions and things.  The red books just condenses the rules and stats down into your normal codex.

Along with that you'll still need the 7th Edition Rule book.  A box of Betrayal at Calth is very good or even Burning of Prospero is also pretty good as well.  Both boxes will get you pretty much completely set, with 20 MK IV, 5 Cataphracti, 1 Contemptor, 5 Tartaros, and 20 MK III.
