Hey there, I am brand new to the 40k universe, and I thought I would check out a forum or two. Firstly, I haven't played a game or even built a figure, so I am a completely new. I have decided to go with the Imperial Guard, particularly Armored Companies, because my first choice, according to my friend, was over used. I have gotten a IG Codex, but that is about it. I am trying to form a little club of about 6 people to play 1500 point games. I am here to learn strategies, building skills, and painting skills. This is my first venture into the miniature gaming arena, so I am bit nervous about everything. Any tools to help with anything would be greatly appreciated. Oh here is the premlimnary design of my Guardsmen. Oh yah, and I choose to make them black, simply because I haven't really seen any black Guardsmen. The colors are Tin Blitz for the "shiny stuff", Graveyard Earth for the Armor, and Kammando Khaki for the fatigues. I was thinking of doing some Graveyard Earth dots on the fatigues as well.
Hello, and welcome to... Librarium Online! *Lightning crack!*
*Ahem* Yes, anyway, you are sure to find plenty of gaming and painting tips and tricks in the appropriate forums. Please be sure to read the rules first, however, located here.
I am liking your guardsmans colour scheme, if I may recommend, also rememebr to get the paints 1 shade lighter, and an ink wash darker than the colours you want to do, these will allow you to shade and highlight well, making the models look better.
Since you have the codex, I recommend making up a rough army list of what you plan to take, and posting it in the imperial guard army lists forums, the people there should be able to fine tune it and make it quite effective for you.
Also, if you have time, pop onto LO chat, there are usually people there to help, just be sure to stay away from Pickle, he is crazy.
Hope you enjoy your stay, and if you have any questions, then please be sure to message me, I will be happy to help as best I can.
See you around.

Good 'morrow dear member!! And I bid thee a warm welcome to the humble halls of Librarium-Online.com. Now, keep up, this is a quick guide as I am a very busy dwarf. Anyway, I am King Ulrik Flamebeard, the local dwarf lord here. You can find me instructing those how to use those brushes to paint and how to create new things. Now, ready? Ok.
Please keep your hands away from the doors and windows of the cells, we have many ravenous members who are prone to biting and not letting go. There have been more than one member who have lost a limb out of baiting them with it.
Well, lets begin in the top here. At the top is the important forum of "Announcements", here you shall find all those notices pinned on this here board you should read them as they're important. The next one you should note is Support and Feedback. As a moderator we put value on member's opinions and comments. Should you have an suggestion or praise or problem with the forums, then you write it on a bit of paper and just post it into this red box.
This door here is for general conversation on the hobby, open to all topics related with Games Workshop. Next is a number of forums that dwell on the more hobby side, the want to be Golden Daemon winners mix with the average joe in the painting room. Next door, the sound of hammers, axes, cutting and sawing along with the cries of "eureka!" mixed with the lamenting cries of the workers can be heard from the conversion room. Looking briefly down the corridor there are other forums that you may find an opponent or 'decorate' your battlefield.
Skipping into the future the 40k corridor holds these strange creatures in thick armour as well as odd creatures that can devour you from the inside out. I also hear there are greenskins there. Bloody well get everywhere, those gits, don't they?
Ahh, this is more like it. Homely. The Fantasy Battles corridor. Holds lots of creatures, from the fumbling manlings, to the degenerates of the northern wastes, to the back stabbing elves to the foul greeenskins.
Have a tale of your exploits? Or heard a yarn to spread across the comfy of a warmed tavern. With cold ale and warmed wine, then this here story tavern is for you.
This next section is an odd combination. Mixed in with other things from outside of our world you have other tabletop games, along side those odd people who enjoy pretending their a pointy eared elf [if you see them, you have my permission to mock them and slap them one]. This is the recreational arena.
Our final stop on the list is the off topic corridor here. You shall spot jokes along here as well as some odd topics, I stay clear as it's all just above my head.
So, young un, that is your tour. If you have any questions then feel free to ring this bell here, you shall see those who can help (the first two groups), don't hesitate to grill them with questions you are unsure of.
Ohhh!! One last thing. Here *hands over large wad of paper* This is the most important documents on LO; The Rules. Ignore them at your peril. We have some rabid moderators chained away for those miscreants trying to cause trouble.
Have a nice time, and welcome to the family.
