So I'm working to put together a misison packet of 6-12 40K missions you can play at 500 points.
The idea behind it pulls on 3 areas of play.
Everybody can play: @ 500 points, esentially 2 troops, and HQ, and one other unit from your codex new players can quickly get into the game with a small or starting model collection, and vet players with big collections can just pull something together quickly.
Playing time- missions @ 500 point should play at 30 minutes or less, allowing 3-4 games an evening or session over one giant 2K game lots of guys tend to play- nothing wrong with that tho.
Scalability- 500 points per player means adding on more players to each side or playing with multiple teams or players on each side is easy- just add on players at 500 points per player and you can still have one and two.
Here is the first few I've complied, and I'm looking for ideas either on the missions themselves or ideas for more missions- I want to say away from fighting over objectives so every model- meaning the extra unit and your HQ actually have a use. Since we are dealing with such a small model count everything should be engaged.
