Default game suggestions

My friend seems convinced that the only way to play a game of 40k is a slug match where the two sides just kill each other until either side is dead or the game exceeds 15 hours No matter how much I try to talk him into playing a game with actual objectives and goals, he is completely rejectful and only wants to play the slug match. Are there any scenarios or game types that you think that he would enjoy?

Heh, I like to play that way too. I guess he would like cleanse missions, take and hold, defending something from the start, or anything where it takes too much thinking.

LOL

Reminds me of a game I saw, 2 shooty SM armies go at it, both geared to take on hoarde armies.

By which stage it's too late to go for objectives, as they're all buried under mountain of bolt-casings.

Rescue is always a good tense one, not sure if it's in the new tules though, I've leant my book out at the moment. Describe it as Capture the Flag and he'll probably be happy.

me and my friend used to play capture the flag mageknight, that was fun. They should make a capture the flag warhammer. use a kill team, but with no unit coherency!
