    new 40 player near Portland, OR

    Hi guys, I'm a new 40k player, and I live near Portland, OR (in Hillsboro). Any other players nearby have ideas of good places to play? I'm going to see what the scene is like at my FLGS is maybe this weekend.

    I also have another post with a question (new 40k player (and a question)) about whether or not I should pick up the main rule book or not, so if you have an opinion there I'd love to hear it.

    Hello there! What army will you be playing? As to your question about the Army book, if you are new to the hobby, I would recomend buying the book. The is because it will give you an idea of how the game is played, and the backround story to WH40K.

    Thanks for the feedback. I probably should have been more specific about my question here. I put a link to the other thread but I guess this board's font colors make it pretty hard to see the link. I've already got the Assault on Black Reach, and from what I gather I'm not missing any rules at all, so I'll probably only pick up the rule book when this little thing wears out.

    As as far as my army goes, like I mentioned, I've got AoBR so far, but I just ordered a Tyranid Assault Brood, a Hive Tyrant, and 3 Tyrant Guards. My AoBR painting is maybe 1/2 done, but when the rest of this stuff comes I'm going to have a lot of work ahead of me.

    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.

    Greetings.

    Depending upon how far you want to drive, I know of two decent places in your area that are worth checking out if you're up for some games.

    In Vancouver, 'Z-Games' has an extremely friendly atmosphere and some amazing tables to play on. It's where I shopped back when I was active in the hobby. The shop owner is usually around for a quick pick up game, as well.

    Closer to Portland, look up 'Bridgetown Hobbies and Games.' I know of at least two other board members that lurk in that particular establishment. I can't speak for their tables, as I've never played a game there, but I will say that they occasionally have some great deals on models.

    Sadly, there's no Games Workshop store anywhere close. You'd have to drive up to Tacoma to find the nearest one. I've lobbied them to open a store in Portland, but nobody ever listens to me.

    Welcome to the PNW and to LO.

    I've never been to Portland, but I hear it's beautiful. Are there many gamers there?

    I play a lot of Fantasy here in Portland, with a fairly good sized group of friends, But I started Warhammer by playing 40k for many years back in Montana before I moved. Seems like most members of the group are starting to get into the idea of playing 40k now, and I noticed that at most game stores in town 40k is more popular.

    Guardian Games is one great location to meet players and find games, Bridgetown Hobbies is another. Guardian seems to get more traffic, but both have great faclities, gaming tables, and nice workers.

    I hope to start playing 40k more regularly again. I am building up my Eldar force, as I got weary of the green skins from before.

    Hey all, I lived in Portland for a year, but only got to Bridgetown games once. But I still remember the talk with the owner. Nice guy! Portland didn't seem so scary when I realized there were gamers around, ha ha!

    I love the 40K rule book hardback for the fluff and hobbying articles in the back. I found them very inspirational, and they really got me going on painting. But you can do without them, so your plan to wait until your Blackreach book wears out is not a bad idea. As much as I love the hardback, 50 dollars will buy a nice bit of models

    May Portland be kind to you, and may you make many friends and comrades there!
