Hi L.O. community.
I've been on the boards for a couple of months now, and I'm having a blast.
I didn't know there was an actual introduction spot, or I would have done this by now.
I'll give all who are interested some background of Games Workshop games for me.
My handle, as you all know is theyak, my real first name is Dave.
I've been playing wargames since I was 6 or 7(something like that) starting with Axis and Allies, risk , and Shogun, etc etc. I moved to chess and other strategy games after that.
I wasn't introduced to miniature wargaming until I was in college. It was then, that a friend of mine would paint space marines on her spare time, and would play space hulk in a cafe near where my apartment was.
A year or so later, another friend invited me down to one of the local game stores, and I was hooked on warhammer 40,000 ever since.
My experience with building armies, and(more importantly) how NOT to build them(more importantly) came from while I was working at WoTC(mall of america store) and used my employee discount to purchase insane amounts of miniatures. I started with eldar, then moved to dark angels, I've liked marines ever since.
My comment on how NOT to build armies came from my D.A. fiasco of building, when I finally purged my army, it was somewhere around 5 to 6000 total points of D.A. including 5 landraiders, a deathwing army, a raven wing army, you get the picture. It was fun, but way too expensive(even with the discount).
Currently, my army repitoire consists of: Eldar(my first army), Blood Angels(1500pts), Space wolves(2500 to 3000pts),Daemon hunters(1000pts), and now Chaos(2000pts).
I'm still having a lot of fun with my armies, and intend to eventually get into Warhammer Fantasy, perhaps some Orcs(they're just so fun and random)
So, I hope to see you around, feel free to check out my blog for my start to finish Chaos army, and/or PM me.
W/D/L Eleventy trillion billion/NONE/ NONE - I am STILL rulezor!
WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Hey Dave. My real name is Tom Hanks (I'm just kidding... bad joke,its actually Jack)
I've been playing WWII games with little plasic men when I was 5 and then got into fantasy then 40K.
I have 4000pt of The Empire, 1500 orcs (fantasy), 1500 High Elves, 1000 Dwaves, and 1500 Ultramarines.
Glad your having fun.

Hi the yak and welcome to LO, now i know that you have been around the boards for a while but just in case please remember to read the rules that can be found at the link at the top of the page. I remember risk and Axis and Allies although the one that got me hooked was Space Crusade.
