Hello, LO people and fellow gamers!
The name is Lord Xalys. I'm a 22yr old Dutch student, 5th year Classical Archaeology (doing my Research Master now). I live in Winschoten, a small town in the north of the Netherlands (18k inhabitants or so). My hobbies: writing (one book published already), PC-gaming (FPS and RTS mainly), swimming, reading, my beautiful and lovely girlfriend, etc. Also I've been playing 40k for one and a half years now. I started out with Eldar, which has the best fluff and models of all 40k IMHO. When a redshirt in GW Rome told me that Eldar would get a major overhaul soon, I started with SM (750pts), CSM (500pts) and Necron (1500pts). Now that the Eldar are to be re-released in November, I'll keep my promise and enter the webway once more.
Hope I'll enjoy my stay here and learn lots of useful stuff,
Thx people, hope I'll learn the ropes soon enough but it will have to wait! I'll be going to Italy for a duration of 3 weeks (leaving tomorrow), for my study archaeology. When I get back end of the month I will happily post on LO again.
And Lost Nemesis, no hard feelings. We're all fellow gamers with an opinion, luckily! We'll debate again soon, I promise.
Hello, I love the way you've used the 'caution' symbol for this post. 'Lord Xalys' has arrived - is that a good or bad thing? Welcome to the addictive world!

I'd say it is indeed a good thing.:yes: My apoplogies for not being here so often, my schedule for study is quite busy... and something else has happened: my m8 and I have put a hold on 40k for now.
Now, before you scream 'blasphemy' and send a squad of Sisters Repentia to our homes, this is what happened. In Italy I've thoiught long and hard about the new Eldar and how I had said I'd start them again in a new form. Then, three weeks later and back home, my m8 and I discussed how much we had built and painted in 2yrs 40k... and that we had only come around playing THREE games. YES, THREE. Our studies and the amount of money + time that 40k costs has spoiled it for us. Now, for us living in the Netherlands, WH is the most popular tabletop game, leaving little room for other games (because we didn't know them).
I'm going to Noorderspel on Sunday (big game convention in Groningen, the Netherlands) and take a look at both the 40k and Warmachine tournaments. For WM it's the first tournament in our northern provinces and the first time I'll see it in action. We like the models, we like the prices and we REALLY like the fact that a battlegroup (enough for a complete game) costs a mere 40 euro's. It remains the cheapest tabletop wargame to start with. Quick play rules are on the internet, on Privateer Press's own site even! So no rulebook required as of yet (and since there are no Codexes being changed all the time, it saves money yet again which is good for us students).
The idea is with WM that we are finally going to PLAY instead of just PAINT. I'll keep my 40k armies in my display case, but I hope they will be joined next week by a warcaster and 4 warjacks, all metal. Then we will play like we've got a pair!
And whin the next Noorderspel tournament, of course.
