Indeed, I love gingerbread too


And now for something completely different...
a Khorne Berzerker being decapitated by his own Bloodfeeder!

Default Good stuff

Actually, pretty helpful info. I might suggest that meeting at the local game store is a good way to begin.

I myself am pretty wary of new gamers. It's not so much that some of the folks could be dangerous, but maturity levels most certainly vary among individuals and can be a limiting factor to enjoying the game, especially for those of us in the over 40 age group.

It's a sad day when somebody lures a kid to their house under false pretences of playing a game of 40k. I mean, to use 40k in such a manner well.... that's just, well, it's Blasphemy!

No really though, this world is full of sick assholes so, you younger players would do quite well to listen to what Jacobite has to say.

And Deceiver, who needs a permit?

I think carrying any kind of sharp weapon is a big no-no. Especially if you
live in england and stabbings are becoming quite a common crime.

Interesting thought: What if you meet up with someone you don't know, and they act kind of off, so you get a bit worried, and it shows so they get even stranger... And the reason their acting weird is that they think you're acting weird, and are probably some wacko. Just something I thought of while reading this. Good advice, all.

It's a good idea to meet in a GW or somthing where there is a lot of other people that enjoy the hobby, go from there .

I think the best bit of advice to come out of all this seems to be meet up at a local games store and nowhere else. (Unless your local game store is ran by a weirdo, that is) and as for knives, its probably not a great idea for the brits on here at least although i live in Nottingham so nothing short of Marneus Calgars Honour Guard will make you feel safe round my way.

Either way, cheers for the great advice, at 26 i'm probably a little too old for the more selective perverts around. But the idea of someone Half inching my models is enough to make me think twice.
