I recently received a 40K kit from a friend who thought I would enjoy it. It was partially a gag gift since he knows I hate painting tiny things, but I have really enjoyed working on the little guy. I hope to start building an army soon. I think the hard part will be learning the game and finding people to play with. Anyone from the Charlotte area shoot me a PM. I hope to hear from you soon, and to start posting my work.
Hey there Asphalt, so your starting on 40k huh... sweet so what kit/army did your friend give you? just as long as you have at least someone like friend who knows what they're doing & will teach you the ropes you should be fine hehe.
Well anyways you will get a lot of helpful advice here so enjoy your stay & welcome to LO.
He gave me a Necron Heavy Destroyer. I love the kit and the looks of the necrons so I have started picking up some additional units, they are currently in the mail. I haven't found anyone in the area who plays yet, so at the moment I am in the read, read, read on the internet stage. I really need to track down a copy of the rules book. There is a lot of terminology and abreviations to get a handle on.
Necrons aye hmmmm... funny that you mention Necrons because they were my first army too lol, they are pretty outdated because they have the oldest codex now (waiting for update) but they are still playable though.
So what else (so far) have you added to them now, the Necron Lord &/or Necron Lord on Destroyer Body will be good additions if you haven't already got them & the Monolith too & maybe some warriors as well for the Force Organisation Chart (FOC) i'm pretty sure that's the minimal (if you want to play) is an HQ & 2 troop choices. They have other models there too, you will also get a whole lot more helpful advice in the Necron Forum hope that helps hehe.
Welcome to L.O. Starting with Necrons might not be a good idea, as they are due to receive a complete overhaul pretty soon. It might be best to wait until then, and instead focus on a more loved army for now.
Having said that, it is completely up to you and if you want to play Necrons, then you go for it!
