Default How did you get into 40K?

I'm curious how we all got our start in this hobby we all know and love...

So... how did you get into 40K?

I had played a very few games (maybe 5-10) back around 2000 with an old friend.

My brother decided he wanted to try the game and I bought the AoBR set for his birthday this past September. Instant addiction.

I think you're lying.



I started back in the early 90's when my friend let me start playing with one of his extra armies. After I showed interest, he gave me some extra space marine miniatures he had laying around and that was it. I added to them, made my own army, and then expanded out into a second army (orks) which I've been playing ever since.

Played DoW, thought "space wolves" sounded badass and then forgot. Add a slight reminder and a few more games of DoW and you get my current stance.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Got some Eldar Guardians for a sci-fi RPG and got interested in the game they were intended for.

Mate of mine introduced them to me this via DoW while in paramedic class, then he shows me his stuff and I was intrested. Said something while I was re-enacting civil war and my captain goes "I have three armies and have played for twenty years" he shows me how and every wed becomes my escap during 18months of working full time, paramedic school , clinical and ride time. Never stopped and now I am a devote follower of the imperium.
