It seems to me that most of the members of LO fall into two categories, either they started gaming in the last few years or they are old old gamers who have been playing GW games more or less none stop since the old fighting fantasy book days, however, i started to wonder if there are any more who find themselves in my situation that is, a gamer who started collecting and playing GW in their youth and then had a long break from it and are kind of finding their feet again- struggling with the fact that none of your mates are interested anymore and the changes in the games etc. in the intervening years leave you feeling confused and bewildered... :huh:
to illustrate, my gaming history reads like:
Heroquest ( around 1988 ), WHFB ( 1991-1998 ), 40k ( a few games in 1996 ) Man o War ( 94-97 ) Epic ( 94-97 )
so you see im well out of it, has anyone else had a similar experience and are returning to the game, how do you find it nowadays, and are you as overt about your reawakened interest or is it a guilty secret (like me)

I have a slightly simlar situation. My cousin introed me to Wolves, I played for about six months, then lost interest. A year later (not quite as long as you), I got back into, and my cousin was getting sick of it, he being the only one I knew who played, so I've basically been cut off from the WH40k wolrd untill sep 04 when I found this place.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces
Im right with you, I played a lot as a kid in the late eighties, mainly fantasy battle but a little epic as well. I gave up in the early nineties and didnt play again until last year. Now im bloody hooked.
Two years ago back in the 3rd edition, I got intrested in 40k and bought a few Space Marines. Anyways, it was too expensive so I stopped for a while. I recently got back to 40k and started a Tau army.
Well not exactly the same but I never really played all that often until about 3 years ago. Back in the day I played a bit with mostly borrowed models but lost interest over time, leaving me a few years later at the buy the cool models and make up your own damn rules phase when I found my old termies under my bed.
Veni Vidi Variant
I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
I started collecting Space Marines about 8 (7..6..hell I don' remember >.< ) years ago, and I've been a pretty much off and on gamer since then. Before starting up again last January, I had taken a 3 year break from wargames in general,so I'm just now getting my mojo back.
I played 2nd ed 40k as a kid, then when I went to Uni I got back into it again and how it had changed.... I knew nothing of the rules and there were these funny races like 'Tau' what the hell are they (jk) I have now been playing 3rd Ed for a good while and firmly entrenched in my De army. My old Orks are gone away.
