I picked up N17 as a way to enter the "Hobby" and started learning to paint on my kids DnD board game minis. Still haven't gotten to painting or assembling the gangs included. Did end up buying some resin cause I just couldn't resist a one horned bounty hunter named Gor. As a kid I found my Dad's stash of Gor novels hidd3n in a book shelf and read everyone of them. But I digress.. I was very interested in a 40k universe skirmish game so I picked up N17. Unfortunately I had read the rules for Infinity and really liked them. And when I read the core rules and gang war 1 I felt seriously let down. If KT18 has a straight forward set of rules that are well written, easy to understand, and built for matched play so I can find pugs, leagues and tournaments possibly. Then I will have no choice but to crack open the piggy bank. I probably would never sell my N17 copy cause I still want to kick my 19 year old self As s for selling my 12 year olds selfs copy of Blood Bowl. And all the resin Bounty Hunters would make for a sweet kill team or Inquisitors henchmen.
