    I should probably learn how to play at some point. Last Warhammer game I played was 18 years ago I think with empire Vs orcs.

    Managed to grab issue 5 today too which was nice

    Here's a Blood Angel Knight I painted a while ago. Had fun with the freehand, but the model took me quite a while overall. I've actually been umm'ing and ahh'ing over selling this to fund a new GPU :p

    Never actually played a game of Warhammer, what's a recommended way for a complete newbie to try his hand? Baring in mind I don't know any other like-minded people, so will be going alone.

    Go in to a local store and have a demonstration game with the store manager. So much better than buying in to a box set that you'll quickly lose interest in :)

    Yeah nice knight! Good choice of red.


    In regards to starting 40k, decide what you want out of it first. Official GW shops are deluded, and the internet is full of annoying people with regards to balance.

    An independent store is a good start, state what you want from the hobby.
    It's a lot of fun but you need to find the right group of people.

    Also prices are cheaper online, element-games is good for example, if you don't have an independent store.
    Vallejo paints, Army-Painter spray, and whatever brush floats yer boat.

    I spent most of yesterday hunting out my GW stuff. I found a fair bit, and most of my original paints were still wet! I've decided to keep my blood bowl and w40k stuff, and sell on my epic/titan legions and warhammer fantasy stuff. Pics so far!! I'm going to finish off my Ultramarines which was the last stuff I did a few years back. The other stuff is from my mid teens!! Does anyone know what the terminator on the right hand side is? It says something next to terminator on the bottom but I can't make it out. (Next to imperial guard commissar)

    Terminator sergeant? The fist guy with a storm bolter on his power fist is Calgar.

    Not sure guy you mean.

    Models certainly look useable :)
