......hi? You want to know about me? Not much to tell but.....
I am/was a wargamer. A proper, historical wargamer. *ahem* Around about 20 years ago I painted a few 40k miniatures for the hell of it but then became extremely annoyed with the way GW seemed to be exploiting us by turning White Dwarf into an advert and making kids buy more and more supplements for their games. I stopped buying their products.
I still believe that GW have a lot to answer for, but I admit that they have done a lot for a hobby that was in danger of fading into complete obscurity.
My 11 year old son recently started asking me about wargaming and as my lovely *cough* ex wife had sold all of my historical miniatures while i wasn't looking I decided that it might be nice to look for something a little different that he might find more appealing. So here I am.
I have recently bought a bunch of second hand 40k miniatures on ebay to give us a start as I am a little too busy to get huge amounts of painting done and I really hate playing with unpainted miniatures.
I have a huge quantity of Orks and really just need to add a few personalities/elites to the mix to create quite a large army. I have a small (about 400 point) force of Tau, the start of a Dark Eldar force and a bunch of Space Marines and to this I am adding the Black Reach box set.
Until I start playing I have absolutely no idea which army I will fall in love with although I have to admit feeling drawn to Orks.
I look forward to many pleasant hours poking around this site as I try to find my way around the 40k universe, thanks for having me.
We Orkz is neva beat!

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.
