Default Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium

I was at a local book store and I picked up a warhammer40k supplement. As the title of this topic suggests it was Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium. The problem is:

I like the general idea of it and the cards that are needed wern't there.

And so the question I am asking anyone who knows is: Where can I get a copy of the cards?

thanks,

'-_Diber_-'

Dark Millennium? Wow, that brings back memories.

You do realise it's for 2nd edition 40k, right?

I have no idea where to get the cards from though, I'm afraid.

Wow, 2nd I had thought it was for 3rd edtition. Oh well I still like the rules because it puts more 'sight' on psykers (no pun intended (None detected -H)). I will adapt the rules to 4th ed.(just updating points, stats, etc.)

I just like the way it works. But thats just me!

P.S. thanks for trying, Andromidius.

Dark millenium was kind of cool in its own way in that it added a lot more character to battles, for example a sudden virus outbreak ment that both sides suddenly had a a lot less troops onm the board.

2nd edition was a lot more oriented towards uber-powerful characters, sort of a left-over from 1st edition where it was basically a tabletop roleplaying game. and by uber-characters, I'm not just talking about deamon princes here. A humble farseer could slaughter its way though practically anything other than a better character, and then he had the psychic ecquiavelent of the united states arsenal to play with afterwards.

Be careful with the cards that you end up keeping the balance of the game, you may find that psykers end up omniptent and you lose the desired balance (debatable) of the 4th edition game.

From what i heard and sort of experienced at the beginning of my Warhammer Days, 2nd editions goes like:


Start of game:
Alright lets do this thing!
....
....
....

1 Hr later:
Every single unit in the game is now in a circle, cheering and jeering as an Avatar from one side dukes it out with a Bloodthirster from another side
....
....
....

3 Hr later:
Dude where did these two guys come from?
Oh they're from....um...one of those vehicles that got destroyed, you forgot to move them, doesn't matter, lets get back to the avatar/bloodthirster thing
....
....
....

Many hours later:
Wow! What an ending!
I know!
...Who won?
...Um...can't remeber
Yeah alright but it was fun right?
Well yeah...i guess

But maybe cos I was too young then to really comprehend it

As opposed to the foot of the gods when playing on the floor, or the family pet of doom...
