I guess this is where I introduce myself, eh?
I've been a forum user for... 12 years now, but I've never actually posted on a forum till a few days ago. I usually just read through forums for the information I'm looking for, but LO looks like a good place to ask a few questions, get some responses, and I generally like the environment.
I oveuse the "..." in everything I type. Its really just a way for me to show I'm thinking. I typically think of most online forums, IM sessions, Chatrooms, and the like as a place for dialogue. So while I try to articulate myself well, I don't get to hung up on the specifics.
I'm sarcastic as all hell, and I don't give a... er... poo?... about most of life's little rules, I'll say whats on my mind. I understand that this forum is actually pretty reserved, and I'll respect that. If I make a little remark though, remember I'm only joking.
I'm in the United States Army. I'm a 25B, basically Computer Tech. in a Combat Service Support Brigade, which basically means that I've never shot at anyone, and I've never even been deployed. I'm proud of my job, and I'll prolly make alot of references to it, particularly in reference to how stupid the army is, but please don't send me anything about "Thanks for serviing our country" or anything, leave that for someone in infantry, I fix computers period. Oh I also jump out of Airplanes, Being Airborne is Awesome... but not really that tactical for a Computer Tech.
Alright well with all that background bull... poo... out of the way. On with the interesting bits.
Warhammer is an addiction. I first became addicted roughly 8 months ago when I went on leave to hang out with my best friend. He had picked up this addiction since the last time I hung out with him, and he passed it on to me. Kinda like how a joint goes round the circle. He was really into Chaos Space Marines.
Now I thought Chaos Space Marines were stupid. Really... What could be better than a Airborne/Artillery brigade? Blow the .... poo.... out of your enemy before you get there, then drop in your Airborne units. Maybe its my brainwashing, but I am Imperial Guard.
Anyway, I've been playing for about 8 months. I started with plastic army men, like the kind you see in Toy Story, and now I'm finally building my GW army. Since I don't have any real bills you might think I'm rich when I say "Yesterday I bought 4 battleforces, three basilisk, 2 valkaries, and 6 boxes of cadian shock troops"... when in reality... I got nothin better to spend my money on.
Painting is alot of work.
Well now that I've gotten the fun stuff out of the way let me welcome you here to LO, I hope you enjoy yourself here as much as I have and get everything you need from the site.

@Mr Biscuits: Yeah I jump out of planes. Get paid to do it too. I've been sky diving a few times, attached to someone else though, but its a blast. Jumping out of a plane is one of the greatest highs you can get. All that adrenaline is pumping, and there's no where for it to go. In Army Jumps you use this giant parachute, and its really very calm and relaxing up there. I've landed on a SUV though, not the best experience... you land, then you roll off, then you hit the ground.
About the Models, I didn't buy them yesterday but just like a week ago. I pretty much bought every IG model on the rack. I've got 3 Chimera's and another Basilisk coming in the mail. And I need to go buy 2 more Valkaries when the shop gets them in.
@Digger, I've got so many addictions already, Dungeons and Dragons (Second Edition of course), Chainmailing, Reading, Wikipedia, Google, and now Warhammer to name a few, I wouldn't be surprised if I picked up fantasy. I get all these awesome government 4 day weekends and 30 days of leave a year, so I need alot of hobbies to pass the time.

Painting is alot of work. I hate work. Therefore I hate painting.
Painting is alot of fun. I enjoy things that are fun. Therefore I enjoy painting.
I hate Painting. I Enjoy Painting. People that Enjoy things they hate are masochists. Therefore I am a masochist.
Hey there! Congratulations on your promotion to Imperial Guard Commander! Really, it warms the heart knowing that there are loyal and true citizens of the Imperium who love the God-Emperor! May you know victory in war, but also times of peace. May there be time for life as well as battle!
