Would like an interesting (non-standard) game of kow or 40k.

I'll have a game of 40k with you. What sort of points and army are you thinking of?
Cool. Assuming you're playing Eldar, how about a bit of actual piracy? Game begins with several unoccupied vehicles in the centre of the board, which the Corsairs have to steal. If a corsair infantry squad or IC begins a turn within 3" of a vehicles access point, and is not contested by any Eldar defenders, one model from the squad can detach and take control of the vehicle. (The model is then removed). The vehicle cannot fire any weapons, but can move (and turbo- boost, tank shock etc) as normal from the subsequent turn. (In effect, a skimmer will be able to clear the board with ease, so it will probably just be removed). Due to the risk of damaging spirit stones, Eldar will not attack their own vehicles under any circumstances. Corsairs score 1vp for each vehicle stolen, Eldar 1vp for each vehicle held.
Just an idea - feel free to suggest any improvements. One possibility could be to drop the "only half the army can be held in reserve rule", (easily the worst rule of 6th ed) and maybe have the Eldar deployment zone in the centre of the board, perhaps with some free fortifications?
I like the sound of that. With all this talk of corsair's evil panda must be Si? What sort of points are we looking at? Also mind if Connor wants to get involved? I've not asked him yet....
Yeah, Si is the pseudonym I use to interact with human beings. Connor is more than welcome - more stuff for me to fail at attempting to steal! Is 2k ok.

? I need 2 detachments to get enough troops slots!
Not long til the new edition of 40k lads. Why the change of name Panda mon?
I'm optimistic for 7th. Well trying at least! Speaking of 40k who's up for a game of 40k. 1000 to 1500pts? I
Flint, as a noble ambassador to Babylon 5 once said, "We are all Panda.". GDT, I'm sure Ed (and possibly Connor) would. Be happy for you to join us if you like? What do you play? You can act as a distraction while I nick all their stuff:)
I play Tyranids (monster heavy) and drop podding space marines. Both 1500pts.
GDT fancy chucking together a 1k army that can pair with mine for a game against Evil Panda (Si)?

Sure thing! I can even do foot Eldar. I think. If I build models stupid fast and lack any anti-tank!
I like your drop poddy marines and my eldar giving his corsair's a run for the money.
What? My pirating escapades have upset you so much you would ally with Mon Keigh against me?? No Conor tonight, I take it?
Nope, maybe next week. I'm tempted to chuck my marines into the fold as well:-)
Imperium vs Eldar would make more sense than Imperium and Eldar vs Eldar...
Right then. So is everybody happy with: Me 1k and GDT 1k v evil panda 2k. There is an outside possibility that Connor might come in on this but I'm waiting out on a msg back. I'm going to bring it all with me but was thinking of running my templars for a change. GDT you going to run marines? Marines should be able to take the pesky eldar apart at the seams. ;-)

I can always cut 1k if Connor joins us. My seams are poorly stitched and come apart pretty easily. I take it we're just playing a normal game, as we have no interest in stealing inferior Mon Keigh technology.

Yes! I'll run marines. I'll cook up a list so we can slay xenos!
I like your take on an abnormal game Si! Connor is not in on this one but might be next week. Shouldn't take too long to squish us some eldar scum....
Gents I'm still coming but will not be able to make it before 1930. Really sorry about the delay.

Our table is currently 2vs 1 Chris, so if you'd like to join us you're more than welcome!
thought Connor was joining you as well?
Apparently he can't make it this week.
Thanks for the offer, but I will leave it for now, I haven't played in a long time, I will only slow the game down
