Reubiedoo's 40k Life

Hi all. Some of you may have come across me on the boards, but probably not.

I have been into 40k for about 13 years, but never really collected an army. I have finally decided to, and I thought it would be fun to keep a record of everything that happens and all the things I learn along the way, with a smattering of all different things.

So I will update this thread whenever anything interesting happens or I have any thoughts to share.

I thought some might find it interesting or amusing.

Have you decided which army you will be collecting? How are you going to choose?

From his previous posts, Eldar.

And don't be too shocked if this gets moved to Project Logs or some other random forum. Wherever it goes, I'll be watching!

90% of people think they are above average.

Yeah I asked if it was OK to post it here, but won't mind where it goes. Just hope it's not creating work for anyone.

Well, one of my main concerns when choosing an army was that my wife HATES 40k, so I was looking for something as aesthetically pleasing as possible to ease things. The choice came down to Tau or Eldar. I flirted with Tau, but they are so DULL. I didn't even bother with reading all the codex fluff. On that basis, I went for my first love; the Eldar.

Its a game that takes up a fair bit of his time, time that she feels entitled to, would I be right?

I considered doing something like this, but was too lazy to do it.
It will be far easier to just follow yours.
Good luck!

I don't mind losing, it's fun either way!

Games I play: Warhammer 40k, Magic The Gathering, Pokemon TCG, Pirates CSG, Other random video games and TCGs.
