Old school player sucked in by the Warp once again...

Hi everyone,

It's been 10 years or so but the Gods have ordained that I take my place on the battlefield again. I used to play Epic mostly and some 40k/Warhammer, and I've recently met up with some old friends who found a great club near where they live.

I went along there (just out of curiosity, I told myself) and all of ten minutes or so later I was borrowing rules and Codexes and building a brand new Space Wolves army list!

Had my first game a few nights ago and scraped out a narrow victory in a 1000pt Annihilation/Spearhead match with some borrowed Blood Angels vs Dark Angels. I was very lucky to be fair, taking out his Razorback and Dreadnought in the first turn before either fired a shot! Let's hope I haven't used up all my good rolls already...

I'm thinking of building (gradually) Ragnar Blackmane's company - heavy on the assault. I'm having my first painting session today, and I'm hoping I've still got some skills.

Take care all, look forward to chatting with you.

Herugrim,

Welcome! You've found yourself a great forum with loads of helpful folks to give you tips and feedback re: army list, painting, etc. Hope you'll have a long stay here at Heresy Online and that you'll enjoy many years playing 40K. I'm kinda like you in a way, played since 1990 and stopped around 2001. Got back into the hobby last year around August, by stumbling randomly across my now local club here in Hong Kong.

Have to say though, I'm much more involved this time around and taking a lot of time preparing army lists, painting and preparing my army(ies).

Good luck... do stop by the project log to show off some of your work. I got two plogs as well "Scion of Sanguinius" and "The 1st Legion: Dark Angels (3rd Company)"....

Welcome to the forums, glad you you found us. You really have found the best boards on the internet. When you start getting your puppies together make sure to toss some painted shots down in the hobby section!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys/gals (more guys in my experience!)

After doing a lot of trawling through the web, it seems everyone is rocking Wolves with yellow shoulder pads. So I'm gonna throw caution to the winds and make my own Great Company. I look forward to introducing you to Herugrim Cuprum's company of grizzly old geezers very soon!

I've made alot of other accounts on multiple 40K forums and it's safe to say that Heresy Online is undoubtedly the best. We even have an arcade (which I just found out about today). You have certainly chosen the best forum that the intergalactic network has to offer.
