Welcome to Librarium Online!
Greetings LO, love the forums, just getting back into 40k after a long absence, have also played BFG as well. Just started to collect an imperial guard army, (I didnt realise how much painting was involved)
Looking forward to the new codex
congrats on the return, but nobody truly ever leaves the 40k universe
Welcome aboard. There is always room for new people or long time players that have finally gotten around to joining this forum.
You picked a good time to get back into guard. In less than two months, a new codex is coming out, so you can spend your time painting grunts now, then get the good toys in May! Yeah, there's a lot of painting involved, but just do it assembly-line style and don't worry about it being perfect on every little guy, especially with horde armies like Orks, nids and guard.
Also, be sure to check out our painting forums and our IG sub-forum, where there's lots of painting and gaming advice.
