Default Returning to the game after 20 years!!

I hadn't played 40k for 20 years and recently got back into it by utter fluke. I noticed a symbol on a work colleagues phone, took a stab in the dark and what do you know, I'm back playing the game. I always kept up to date with the lore etc via the black library forum and I still read the novels but the games is as much fun as it was when I was 15.

Anyway, I'm a space wolve player, can't believe my old models are still current today after all this time.
I'll be posting soon looking for fellow 40k players from Glasgow

thanks

It was the first codex to come out way back in the early 90s, I liked the lore which helped

Played 3 games since against chaos and tau twice. Almost tabled chaos but got beat on points. Got hammered by tau which is a new race to me

I almost went for Space Wolves when I got started. I'm partially Norwegian so I grew up loving to read about Vikings. I just didn't know they were an option until it was too late, haha. Have you gotten to play any games since coming back, or still preparing?

Yeah played a few times, didn't do so well. The basics are still the same. I've got a rather large army. On my last count, over 6000pts worth. Just bought myself some new updated additions, flyers, heros etc a very diverse army. What do you play

Well welcome back. A 20 year gap is more than most, so that makes you 2nd and 3rd edtion? Lots of fhanges since then.

Eh? Thats a different one, was that the original lore? Retconed in to the primarch?

Had not heard of that one.

Yes very old. I still have the very first rule book. Things really got exciting for me though when the 1St edition codices came out
Some many special rules now
