I'm new to this forum and pretty darn new to WH40K as well. I've been collecting and painting miniatures off and on since 1992, and picked up Space Marines for something different. Recently I popped into the Sydney GW shop for an airbrush, and while I was there an employee gave me a quick demo game. On the strength of that I've decided to get my army into some kind of shape so I can play the odd game.
I collect Ultramarines (blue is my favourite colour!) and at the moment I've got the contents of AoBR, a battleforce, a megaforce, a bike squad, a techmarine, and a few other miscellaneous Marines. There's still a lot to paint - I never was a fast painter but I am picking up ways to speed up the process.
Once I've got enough painted to make an actual army I'll start playing a few games in the various Sydney hobby stores, but for the moment I'm still just a painter.
I'm sure there is still one or two original intro titles left out there, they just may convey the thought process of a mentally damaged Ork.
Welcome to the forums James, it's great to see veterans coming back to the game after starting well, before I was even born. I'm sure LO will give you everything you need from it and maybe after a few games you can put some more info back into the site for others. In the mean time we have some very talented painters on these boards that I'm sure would be more than happy to give you some help and I'm sure when that first game finally rolls around I'll be seeing more of you around the Marine forums.
Best of luck to you on these boards and should you need help with anything (read: NOT PAINTING) feel free to shoot me a PM.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
Hey there sim_james, so you live in Sydney as well? that's so cool, well i live near Campbelltown, so are you also thinking about getting yourself another army? as for me i have a few 40k armies: Dark Eldar, Necrons, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Black Templars, Witch Hunters, Tyranids & Imperial Guard.
Well anyways enough about me, you will get a lot of helpful advice here when you start playing, but until then you will also get a lot of helpful painting tips here as well.
So enjoy your stay here & welcome to LO.
I'm located in Sydney's inner west - pretty close to the city, although you wouldn't know it from traffic this morning! (Sydney drivers are always a bit crazy in the rain.)
I've looked at other models outside the marines, but I don't have any immediate plans to start a second army. I wouldn't want to replicate any of my housemates' armies - Ravenguard, Orks, Tyrannids, and Eldar. Realistically it's probably best that I develop my first army and learn more about the game before planning a second one. :p
