Default Howdy Y'all

Hi everyone! The names Mike and I'm a long time gamer, possibly longer than many of you have been alive! ;-)

Over the years I've played many games and many armies. Warhammer Fantasy and 40K of course, but I've spent time on FOW, BattleTech, Warmahordes and other sci-fi, fantasy and historical games, including many of the old Specialist games from GW.

These days I don't play as much as I used to (or as much as I'd like) so now I guess I'm more of a collector and painter than a gamer. Still, I love to talk gaming and keep up on the news so I joined to check out the community here. :-)

Hey there Mike, welcome aboard!

Our regulars include novices and veterans alike, many ages, and many interests.

For example, I don't play almost at all anymore, but like you I still paint, convert, and sculpt. I've been at it a while though. I started playing 40k before second edition, under the Battle Manual (1.5 ed).

We'd love to see what projects you're writing on these days, and photos of your long history!

Thanks for the welcome! Like many games I've got loads of unpainted figures and half completed armies, but I'll try and post some pics of my finished work as soon as I get a chance. :-)

Welcome to the boards of heresy. Looking forward to seeing some of your collection.

I personally have been in the hobby for over 20 years now. I haven't played for a good 2 years or so now, but painting and modelling have been my primary focus these days.

Welcome again!

Crap. I just realized I've been at it more than 20 years too. Huh.

Veteran gamers unite!

Hey welcome to the boards. I started back in 1994 so yeah I have hit the 20 year mark as well. Great to have you here and hope you have fun.
