... after an unintentional hiatus!

Hi!

So, back in January I got an email from Jezlad, warning... erm, informing... informing me about the site.

Thought that, now that I'm actually working on hobby-related stuff again, I'd pop in and get in the ground floor.

I was away from the hobby for over a year and a half, after a catastrophic move that cost me an enormous Catachan-based I.G. army, a small-but-growing Space Marine force of my own creation (I was going to call them "The Sons of Thunder") and a fairly ugly greenskin horde for WHFB.

So, things finally turning around for me, I've decided to start back in with 40K, and to do it in a big way: with an army I've never done anything with before!

After picking up the Tau Empire codex, I got hooked on all the sleek lines, cutting-edge tech, and, of course, all the ugly little auxilliaries they have available.

I'm starting off fairly small, but I'm satisfied with how it's all coming together. I really miss my I.G., so my Tau have quite a lot of Camo and Catachan Green in thier color scheme. Hopefully soon, I'll get some pics to put up here, and share my work with everyone.

I got started in the hobby a long time ago (back in the '80s) simply as a miniature-painting rpg-player. It wasn't until my Air Force days down in Florida that I stumbled into Necromunda and really found out what all those minis were really, truly meant for!

So, yeah, Necromunda was my "Gateway Drug" as it were.

Right now, I don't know a single person in my area that actually plays any games, so by the time my new army is where I'm happy with it, I might actually have found someone to play against.

I need you all to know that I'm only about half-way crazy, but I'm on my meds (most of the time... heh heh heh) so I promise I won't be too odd.

Welcome to HO,

Plenty of Tau players on the site for advice on all aspects of the hobby and a freindly crew too.

Good to see folks coming back into the game and definatly looking forward to seeing pics of your army.

Welcome!

I'm a relative newby myself. Working on assembling, painting and playing my very first army - Necrons. I've played with other armies that my husband and I assembled and painted together. But now get to focus on one and learn all their dirty tricks!

Take a look around and join us in the chat. We are a unique bunch of characters. *grin*

Welcome to the boards Tau. Despite the avatar I sport and my vastly unhealthy worship of the Architect of Fate, I too field Tau regularly so it is always good to welcome another player. And don't worry, we are all half baked here.... :smoking:
