Welcome to Librarium Online!
Greetings, Happy to be here.
I've been painting and modeling various incarnations of GW product since 1988, And playing said variations off and on for about half that. I was always more into modeling and painting (More modeling than painting) than actually playing the game.
I currently only have 3 armies left, Necrons, Tyranids, And Chaos Space Marines. Although both my chaos and tyranids are in a state of dissaray after coming back from a 2-3 year hiatus, As there were many rule changes and a vast amount of my models are obsolete for my nids. Or seriously lacking structure for my csm, As I ran a fluffy 1000 Sons army. Which limited the models I could take, And now I am just flustered with all the choices I have available.
I personally think I am a not a very good painter, I'm not bad just not good. Though I imagine most artists say this about themselves. I take far too long to do a single model, On average 5-6 hours per mini. Just slow and methodical, However this is twice the speed of which I was when I started, So at least that's something.
I do love modeling however, I have 11 thousand or so points worth of tyranids and possibly no more than 3k are even gameplay legal. It's just so hard not to take all those pointy bits and bodys and teeth and make something interesting. Out of all my armies I have more illegal models than I do legal ones.
Well that's me, Thanks for having me. See you around.
Why Welcome to Librarium Online Rakear! I'll go get the grill heated up.
Good to see another wargamer return to their hobby. Chaos and Tyranids are busy forums, and I'm sure you'll get some great discussions in there. I'm sad to say the Necron forum has been a bit...dead, lately, but there is a core group of solid gamers that drop by and keep the dust off.
Please make sure to read through the Forum Rules.
Enjoy your stay! I'm sure I'll be seeing you in the forums soon.
Hi there Rakear! Wow, you've been along for the GW ride for most of it's incredible history. I'm really sorry to hear that your armies need a lot of work to get them to current codices, and that a lot isn't usable now. But even just part of what you have is plenty to game with Unlike you, I am a bad painter. The only thing I can say for myself is, I'm kind of fast, ha ha I call my style 'sloppy mop'. I'd love to see your models, and look forward to pics please!
Emperor's light shine on you!
One thing I am sure of, I am a terrible photographer. However I'll try and rig a box and get some decent photo's if i can drag myself away from my current projects.
Thank you for the welcome.
