Welcome to Librarium Online!
My name is Alex, A 22 year old Ambulance Driver, Living on Long Island, NY.
Let me start by saying it was not by my hand that I got into this hobby, I was talked, no, forced! to play 40k... and I’ll blame my addiction on those who caused it.
I was brought into this Hobby about 4 months ago by a group of close friends, after hearing that I had a craving to build some models. (I liked shipbuilding/rockets/planes, you name it, I could build it.) They talked me into purchasing a Tau Empire Battle Force with the idea that after I build the models, I could later play a game with them (Imperium, Chaos, Nids, and Orks)
So I was sold, I liked range, I liked the idea of the Tau Philosophy, and I really liked Farsight,
A.D.D. soon took over and tons of fluff spewed out of my head about O'shovah's story, (alot of 'Screw you Dad, I'm going to California and starting a band!' (Farsight Enclave to the Empire) then taking the dawn blade and playing it like an air-guitar with some Bill&Ted riff playing in the background).
So 1 Empire Battle Force soon turned to two, and Xv8s seemingly multiplied on my craft table. I now roll with a (Force Organization Chart Legal) Army of 17 Xv8s (Farsight, and 2nd HQ included) and a whole lot more, totaling a close 3000 points. A few more troops and I'm ready to join my friends in some huge Apoc battles.
I've built a City board, to play along side a friends Snowboard, and soon partner with a series of bridges leading to a third. all boards are 4x8
What can I say? I'm hooked, and the Librarium seemingly was there in almost every Google search for something Tau or 40k related, so it's no surprise I came here.
Anywho, I'm a Motorcycle Riding, "Kroot-hatin', Vespid Squishin' Tau player on Long Island, And hopefully, one day, I’ll stop spending the dog food money on Fire Warriors. And maybe find someone to help scrape the mucus off my brain.

I frequently choose the latter..
Yeah, most frequent army list is running about 3052. and Ebay is my friend, I scored 6 xv8s in a single auction for 40 bucks.
Plus, i'm down right cheap, I look for deals, and will most likely never purchase a forgeworld model, I'm decent at fabrication, at least to my own standards. Finally got conversions down pretty good, and look forward to building my LAST 3 xv8's, all of which will have some sort of theme, Drop kicking Space Marines, Squishing Orcs. etc etc.
