Hello all, I'm Bill. I'm from Maine.
I've been lurking these boards for probably a good year or so, but might as well introduce myself, since I'm getting to the game more.
I've always been interested in 40k, but until recently just never had incentive to invest in it. After we found that one of my friends is a HUGE 40k fan, he pulled 2 of our group into the game hard, and that finally gave me a chance to pick it up.
I seem to be a masochist since I chose Daemons as my first army. Mostly because they seemed like the most fun to paint. Which brings me to my next point. I've more or less become our groups "master" painter. I don't consider myself a master by any stretch, but I seem to be a hell of alot better than them, so thus they thrust their armies to me to paint (and because they're too lazy)
As it Stands I plan to at least give 'Ard Boyz a shot in August, although I don't have high hopes, I'll find it entertaining to see 4 of the participating armies painted by me. (my Daemons, a Deathwing Dark Angels army which I'm painting this week, Salamanders, Tyranids.)
