Welcome to Librarium Online!
Been doing this warhammer thing since the Reaper rules first got passed around in dodgy photocopy form in the shop in Dalling Road. Yup I'm an ancient beardy, though I like to think of myself as being the equivalent of three 16 year olds.
Strange though I still get my ass handed to me over the table on an almost weekly basis and I still can't paint past boot camp basic but hell I'm still here!
One of my problems is probably that I like my armies to be fun, not necessarily functional. If I ain't laughing I ain't playing right. Sure bugs the bejessus out of Space Marine Chaplains and IG Commissars.
I suppose I'd better list my current armies then... I say current cos I tend to go through them at a rate;
- Orks, General Grabnutz 3000pts of orky doom. All scratchbuilt vehicles, loadsa boys, painting ain't worth a damn, but hey, they're orks, whose counting?
- Space Marines, Jagged Edge Renegades (well almost, the Inquisition are still looking into that one - in the virus-bombed and assaulted Episcopal Palace and Sisterhood Barracks on Regina Prime).
- Halfling Bloodbowl team. Oi are you laughing at the back?! They are spectacularly successful, if you count being beat in 101 hilarious ways amusing. Well they keep me amused and I always get the wooden spoon.
- Undead Bloodbowl team, you're getting the picture now ain't yer?
My latest project is an Imperial Navy landing party. IG stat's with an interesting assortment of doctrines and equipment, including home made Aquila landers. Basing their uniforms on Soviet Navy circa 1904.
Also just getting back into Wahammer after picking up the boxed set thing. Lots of excellent plastics for a reasonable price. Well if I don't like the new version they will come in handy for the D&D - oh yeah been doing D&D for about thirty years. Sorry kids, but most of you will not get over this hobby addiction, you will all end up writing letters like this to forums where you are twice the age of the web-master. I wonder what my retirement home will be like...?
Enough already? Yeah you're probably right...
Do you happen to be the sam Grabnutz that started Grotfest over at Relic?
But thats besides the point...welcome to the LO. Remember to wash your hands when your done here.
Welcome to LO er.. grab... um... yeah.. (liking the handle)
I'll take this moment to say to please take a moment to read through the rules of the forum:
So far, I like your energy and attitude towards the game, I admit I'm far too competative for my own good.
I know when I'm in my retirement home I'll still be rolling 20's until they pry it out of my cold dead hands.
W/D/L Eleventy trillion billion/NONE/ NONE - I am STILL rulezor!
WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I'm afraid I don't get in here as much as I should, but I will, I will, honest - as soon as life stops toying with me.
Just started painting the warhammer stuff. Hmmm... goblins with a suntan,,,
Last one into the forums is a grot!
