Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys hows it going?
My name is Kev and I'm from the North West in the UK. I've been into Wargaming for around 15 years now. Starting from when I was around 13. I had quite a long gap between the ages of 17 and 25 and over the last few years I have really gotten back into the hobby.
I'm the kind of hobbyist who always has about 5 projects on the go at once, none of which ever get finished. I've also been quite unfortuanate as of late and most of my gaming friends have moved away from the hobby, resulting in my not actually being able to play 40k or FB for a couple of years. The chaps in my local GW store are friendly enough and always invite me to gaming nights, but I have never really been comfortable playing against people I don't know. Weird eh? I miss playing, and as time goes on my limited confidence diminishes further and further. I havent even played either of the new editions.
I continue to collect and paint when I have the time, and signed up to Librarium in the hope of engaging with like minded folk. Of all the forums out there related to the hobby it seems like Librarium has a great community vibe.
Outside of tabletop gaming, I am an avid World Of Warcraft player, and I like to play guitar.
I think I will be most involved in the painting forums. I am a million miles from being a pro painter. But I look forward to posting up some of my work for constructive criticism and maybe I can even offer people some pointers of my own.
Edit: I forgot to mention my armies... doh! I fumble around with a lot of different armies in both 40k and Fantasy Battle, but the army I always return to is my Dark Angels. The new Codex arrived a few months after my returning to the hobby and I just fell absolutely in love with them. I have about 5k points maybe? I also have a small force of Orks. FB wise, I had about 3k points of a solid Empire force, but I have recently sold those... with my not playing much these days, the space and cash were needed. Now I just pick up things I would like to paint, so at the moment I have a batallion of Warriors Of Chaos that I am working on, and a little unit of Dwarfs as I was really wanting to paint the beards.

Hey there Kev, so you live in the UK i have heard that its nice over there, as for me i live in Australia, & i also see that you have Dark Angels & Orks that's cool so how many points of Orks do you have?, as for me i have a pretty big Ork army maybe 2k or 3k points. I have a few 40k armies: Dark Eldar, Necrons, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Black Templars, Witch Hunters, Tyranids & Imperial Guard & i have the Lizardmen for Fantasy but i also want Skaven as well.
Well anyways you will get a lot of helpful advice here so enjoy your stay & welcome to LO.
Thanks Bizkit. My Orks currently sit at around 1500 I reckon. I've never gamed them though and very few are painted. I just love green! haha
I thought that while I had finally plucked up the courage to make a post I would continue in the spirit by posting some of my recent work up. Attatched are some of my Deathwing, Ezekiel who is a WIP at the moment, Some of my Devastators, some robed up Dark Angels and a couple of Rhino's that I have been toying about with on and off.
please ignore the black soot on the rhino top. This is leftover from when the exhausts were coloured green. I changed them to bone at the last minute to add a little extra to the model, so the black soot will be made green very soon.
I would greatly appreciate any comments and criticisms, especially regarding my lacklustre attempts at mud!
