I got my girlfriend into much geekery. Started off by getting her to play magic with me at the local fnm's. Then when I introduced Malifaux into my local store she picked up a Lady J box set and I taught her the basics of painting and she loves it. As I have pretty intense on getting my necrons done, she decided she wanted to start an army, but didn't want to do a whole lotta armour, so she picked up a box of Seekers and a box of Bloodletters and have started painting them up. She isn't sure if she wants to learn how to play, but she is enjoying painting them up.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
