Hi all! I've played a few diffrent skirmish level miniatures games, but I'm finally taking the plunge into full war gaming. My freind and I are planning on splitting the Shadow and Pain box, but I noticed that the point spread between the 2 armys is about 80pts. I play infinity and a few points...
Maybe this is a tad too much for a brand new player to the 40k table top to take on, But after my friend suggested to me to convert Guilliman's model into Lion El john son i just have to do it and field him in my army and im really new to the whole 40k table top and making a 350 point model work...
I'm buying a Necron lot with:
9 Scarab Swarms
1 Doomsday Ark that I might be able to change into a Ghost Ark.
Are there other units I should buy to make a respectable army? I'm just getting into the hobby and have yet to play it since I don't own the codex and...
At the moment (based on looks at least) I'm interested in Necrons, Chaos Space Marines, Orks, Tyranids, Tau, and Grey Knights.
I'd like to know what the playstyles are of these armies, their strengths and weaknesses, gimmicks, how many I would need just to start out, and how good they are.

Hello guys. While googling for warhammer info I kept on comming to this site and so thought why not sign up. Im playing chaos too. Also I do have a question, Do chaos have beacons for deepstike? like SM and Tau. I tried looking in the codex and everything had no luck finding it. Also any...
I'm new to 40k and will be playing Necrons. I have the battleforce box and want to build up my force to first 1000 points then 2000 and I'll be doing it pretty quickly with just a couple big purchases so I can get to playing. Competitive play sounds like fun and I will definitely play some...
I am new to the Warhammer 40k table top game and community, I did the silly thing of buying a bunch of cool looking models without considering any starts :<
Currently I have:
Urien Rakarth (he looks so cool!)
Haemonculus (looks really cool too)
Mandrakes x5 (seems all new players...
Good day everyone.
I am new to Warhammer and to the thread - and myself along with my 2 teens, are getting into the game, after attending a few games at a local Game Workshop event.
I have decided to go with Orks as my primary because I love the idea of running straight into the face of the...
Good day everyone!
I would like to say that myself and 2 kids have decided to join the ranks of Warhammer and are getting into the game. I have a few friends that play and I'm looking to get started. Of course - with every game, a person needs help in knowing where to start ...
Hello, I am new to 40k, but I have a pretty decent understanding of 6e rules and have played a few games. However, I have almost no idea where to start when it comes to creating a strategically sound army (because of my experience with other games I can make some guesses, but that's not always...

So my friend just recently got me into 40k by giving me his old tau army.
We've played games with some of his other armies and when i heard how the tau work, I thought they sounded awesome. I went to Michael's craft store last night and bought Testors model paint so i could paint my new to me...
Completely new to Wh40k and i plan on getting my first army soon. Figured I'd find someplace to get some tips and share ideas with.
On that note if you have any basic tips for all aspects of wh40k, please toss them out.
