Default Not sure how much I'll fit in here...

The reason I'm not sure I'll fit in is because I don't actually play Warhammer 40,000.

Don't get me wrong, I love the universe, I've read some of the books, and I've got friends who play it and I've played using their armies before. I just don't have enough money to play 40k and keep up my other two hobbies of comic books (my favorite character is Superman! He's so cool!) and having an expensive girlfriend (girls are nothing but trouble! Don't the rest of you forget it!)

So yeah. I guess I'm just here to see if I can learn more about the game and the universe from people who know it first hand, so maybe I'll have it more figured out by the time I'm actually able to start playing it, probably after college. -shrug-
Hope I'm not TOO out of place.

As a heretic I welcome you into our midst, at least until the blood god calls for your blood.

Welcome aboard bud! The beauty of the 40k universe is that you don't have to play the game to enjoy it. With the background and books, a person can delve into the many other facets of the universe and still like it. Many folks don't play the game. Some just paint minis, others just write fanfic. The only real condition for joining is that you be insane. You are insane, aren't you? Enjoy your stay!

Good luck and good gaming,

Nate

Totally agree, I think you will fit in fine. We talk about more than just 40k here too!

I should change my name to Number 1. Not because I am conceited but because thats what I always roll at inopportune moments.

You will fit in just fine . There is no requirement of having a huge army or being a 40k mega nerd to join the forums. We were all in your place at one point or another.

First off welcome to the boards! The cool thing about Heresy is that we have a lot of different focuses from the game play, to the modeling, to fluff and BL novels. Not to mention that we have RP threads, a section for original works, and a great Off topic section. We are glad to have you aboard and I am sure you will fit in just fine.

No need to worry, fellow heretic. I still have yet to play a game of 40K with my minis. And the universe, as had been said, is enough to immerse you and keep you with plenty to talk about. Welcome aboard
