I am a long time fan of warhammer 40k, collecting, building, painting and playing. I discovered this hobby during the 2nd edition of warhammer 40k. Played space marines ( of course ) and Tyranids during 2nd edition, Blood angels and Orks during 3rd edition and Imperial guards during 4th. I stopped playing games from 5th to 8th edition and sold off my existing armies (most) as my gaming club closed and friends lost interest in the hobby.
Up until 8th edition I stayed in the hobby but only painting wathever models I liked. I spent most of 8th edition building my small tyranids force (came back to my first love). Took me most of 8th to complete as I was busy with 2 newborns
. I found a great gaming club after moving last year and I was about to complete my comeback in the gaming part of the hobby when nurgle's plague hit...
I remember that being active on forums helped me feel like I was still part of a gaming group in the past and that is why I came here, warhammercommunity ranked you guys 1st so it must be for a reason
That's about it for my intro ( a bit long right? )
