Default New Forumite saying howdy

Howdy y'all.

I'm here via Fumbbl - possibly the greatest use of java coding the world has ever seen.

I've been into 40K since, oh I don't know, some time in the dark ages back when men were men, orks were orks and D-Cannons used to do some very wierd things indeed. A year or so before 3rd Edition came out I think.

Anyway, I've been a Space Wolf player throughout all those years and to be honest it was the fluff of the 40K universe that brought me into it far more than the games themselves. As a result I am an archaic fluff buff and I simply do not hold with the rewriting of history that has happened over the past few years.

I'll admit, I have been out of the mainstream for quite a while - 3 or 4 years - but I've kept in touch here and there using the wonderful interweb. I have played a few games of the latest edition and while I like it, I feel it is a little simplistic compared to the old rules. Then again, this makes it a goddamned bit faster to play. Although I do miss conversion beamers, but they've been gone for a while

Hello chap, good to see a fellow wolf in the ranks!

I here what you say about the good old days. I remember when a Wolf Guard could go toe to toe with the average Lord and Njal Strmcaller charged at WS10....

Ah, the good old days

Welcome to the forums, Long Fang. Although judging by the name you've turned to the Foul Powers. :twisted:

I remember when there was a Njal Stormcaller

And a big 'ole pile of stompy death name Bjorn...

Anyway, thanks for the welcome all, I'm sure I'll get round to boring you all to death about the finer principles of mass groups of jumppacking Bloodclaws at some point in the near future.

Oh, ad what's the status of the 'Stormcaller psychic power debate' these days?

Oh, just a tiny disagreement I heard about once, I doubt many people ever heard about it, quite quiet and polite in my opinion :roll:
