Just signed up, and im looking forewords to getting to know you all. My focus is warhammer 40k, but i have also dabbled in bloodbowl and mordheim.
Still learning the site, but im hoping to get some articles up soon, and maybe start a blog for my 2011 Adepticon project.
For the False Emperor!!!
Welcome to Librarium Online, Ironklad!
You've found a great site to talk about your hobby on. Lots of experienced players, painters and modelers here who will readily exchange their thoughts with you. Just go ahead and browse the subforums that interest you the most and make yourself comfortable!
Maybe check out the forum rules, just in case.
For how long have you been into the hobby? What armies do you collect? Is your focus on the modeling or playing the game? What's that project of yours for the Adepticon? Tell us a little more about yourself, we would appreciate it.
(And no more talk about a "false" Emperor! He's real! )
Have fun and enjoy your stay,
Thanks Red! I did take a look at the forum rules as suggested.
I have been playing 40k (and other gw games) for around 12 years =O
I began the hobby with eldar, though i was young and foolish back then
My first serious army was chaos. I say serious because i built it with the intention of getting into tournament play. I began the army right when 4th came out, and opted for a cult slaanesh army because of the fluff, and the freedom i could have in converting a chaos force. I put allot of work into the project, and made extensive use of online tutorials to improve my painting and modelling. The army won me allot of awards, mostly for the painting and modelling, but i also became a pretty good player and sportsman. I have made small lists for LaTD, orks, and tyranids, but never really built large forces with them. What ended up happening is that i continued to expand my chaos over the years, and now have a very large collection. As far as other games go, i put together a norse team for the bloodbowl league i ran, and i have played a number of different mordheim warbands. I have also put allot of time into making terrain and themed gaming tables.
The adepticon project that im working on is to build a 1850 point blood angels list to take to the 2011 event. As soon as i saw the codex i knew i wanted to create a full jump infantry list. I think i came up with something effective, though i havent posted it up for comments anywhere yet. The other part of the project is organize 3 of my gaming buddies to come with me so that we can also do the team tournament. We went back and forth quite a bit about the theme for our combined force, but when the BA codex came out we quickly came to the conclusion that we should all take blood angels. Things are still unconfirmed at this point, but we are going to do our best to make it happen.
I have traditionally taken a balanced approach to the hobby, especially being that i was big into the competitive tournament scene. Depending on the venue you really have to excel in painting, strategy, fluff, and of course sportsmanship. However, the last couple years i have been unable to travel for tournaments, so i have gradually moved more and more into the hobby side of things.
That's quite a history! I'm sure you'll knowledge will add to the community, and hopefully you can learn some more from us as well.
Good luck for your projects! As a veteran bike / skimmer armies (=speed) player, I am quite certain that a jump pack army is very competitive indeed, don't worry. Feel free to have your list discussed in the Space Marine Army List section.
Not a fan of the new Codex: Blood Angels, personally. I usually don't like ranting and whining about new codices: they always appear very strong when they are first released, until players learn to adapt to it. Though I can't say I never complained about other codices (everyone does at one point or another, right?), but the new Blood Angels' codex really blew my mind. But this is for some place else to argue about.
Anyway, my initial intention was to say that it's a good choice for tournament play and I'm sure you will have good odds of collecting some awards! Good luck! Looking forward to some pictures of your followers of Sanguinius.
Again: welcome to the forums!
I will have to make sure i post my proposed list up, i dont want to end up with something that nobody wants to play against.
Thanks again for the welcome.
