Default Hi!!!!

New to the Forums, but not new to the Game of Warhammer 40k. Started Playing back in 1987, played all the editions since. The Armies I play are Black Templars (3k points) Crimson Fists ( about 2k), Orks (2k Speed Freaks stuff mainly), Imperial Guard (3k), Sisters of Battle (1.3k). All of the above mentioned Armies are painted to the point values and I have a bunch of other stuff that needs to be painted and I'm working through all of it. I don't consider myself to be a competitive player, as I have stopped doing competitions and tournaments back during 4th Edition. I love the Dark, Gothic background of 40k and that is what got into the game way back in 1987. I also like to watch Doctor Who and other Sci-fi...

Hi there, welcome to Heresy Online. It'd be nice to see some pictures of some of your painted models over in the Modelling and Painting section, because it sounds like you have plenty of them!

I hope you enjoy your stay.

Regards,
Jake.

Yes, hopefully I will get a few pics up in a couple of days, and yes I have quit a few minatures to say the least..Hope you guys will enjoy them. But a word of warning though, I consider myself a good painter not really a great one..but hey, the game is supposed to be about having fun right? (While your punching your powerfist through a tank......)

Excellent, another 20+ year veteran who avoided lead poisoning.

I started off painting with enamels so had the issue of solvents to go with the lead dust.

Default Solvents

Man, I'm I really that old?? It is sooo funny how far the hobby has come..and how paint and minature quality has improved..Especially with Plastics and stuff. But Solvent paints....I think only Testers paints still make those right?

Welcome to the boards. As the others have said, it's always good to have another Rogue Trader veteran on board.
