Getting back into hobby after 10 years.

Hi all... played in high school then stopped when i joined the army. Just got talked into playing again at the beginning of 2012 (after 10 years away). I play Imperial Guard, but only have 1k in points at the moment. Got talked into joining this forum after talking to some nice folks at adepticon. Any links or help with painting and army lists is much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Dawson and welcome to the forums. You'll find Guard have changed a lot in the past decade, a lot for the better in my opinion. Plenty of experience here to help you through the changes though.

Hello Dawson, I'm in the Army also, Welcome aboard!! I am also a new member, Best advice for Guard in a nutshell: Tanks (Leman Russ Variants) Valkeryries and Transports for your troops. You will have ALOT of fun playing Guard...
