Short bit of somewhat mundange history... I used to play Warhammer back when the Blackpool games workshop didn't exist (had to go to Preston) and there was no boxed set. The rather hefty book (2nd ed?) was held together by what I suspect was flea-market glue that would repeatedly fail. Exchanges were free though
Played 40k a bit but, probably, Epic most of all with man o war (fun) and bloodbowl (won the blackpool tournament, still have the shirt) at the time Lots of WFRP too.
Cue almost a 10 year hiatus with many (pnp) rpgs, mmos but little/no wargaming and we reach today (or, at least, last week).
I was running a WFRP weekend recently and whilst gathering up a couple of minis my other half was watching some young 'uns playing (40k I think). Upon leaving the store a barrage of questions ensued. Explained as best I could, she was interested, so bought the WHFB boxed set the next day.
... and here we are

Youre from Blackpool!! Wow that's pretty rare, as am I.....
Welcome to LO, follow the rules and i'm sure you will have plenty of fun!
Do you still play Fantasy/40K then, and if so which army's do you play? I play Imperial Guard (40K) and Empire (fantasy) myself.
Originally from Blackpool yep then St.Annes at 12 (for secondary school) and, since 18 (so for the last 7 years) lived in sunny sunny Manchester I'm sure I've got a load of old 40k and epic stuff gathering cobwebs in St.Annes (where my parents still are) but whether they'll ever see the light of day again...
So, for now, we're only playing/collecting Fantasy My fiancÃ©e (in photo) is going for Orcs and I'll *probably* do Dark Elves.
I actually live in St Annes, (but no one seems to know where it is so i put Blackpool), and i'm at lytham St Annes High Sixth Form ATM.....
Hope all goes well with the fantasy collection, i know for a fact that orcs can be quite nasty on the field, but ive had less experience with the dark elves, (after skimming the army book though they do seem rather cool), See you around some time!
Aye, we both went to lytham st.annes high + 6th form Are you a skater at all?
