I am Treesnifer. He is Anfo. And since the boy didn't post, I shall.

I've ended up here following my son, Anfo, who found this site first. Aside from gaming since '76, my friends and I entered tabletop war gaming with 2nd ed. Epic Space Marine. Twenty some years later, I introduced my son to Epic, and to 40k just this past birthday. :gamer2:

The boy has devoured the Blood Raven Omnibus after we battled through DoW, followed swiftly by the Soul Drinker's Omnibus. My high school bud, who was one of six who played Epic in our group, kicked down the Horus Heresy up to Thousand Sons and Anfo is about half way through that stack.

As for me, with the invasion of the Tyranid and the destruction of the Home Worlds, the brotherhoods of the Gilbaldum and the other Strongholds are being gathered back from detached duties throughout the Imperium, per treaty stipulations, to be brought to bear towards the defense of ancestral mining colonies that remain. Though the Home Worlds lie shattered and their children scattered, it takes more than the face of annihilation to stop the Squats.

The Book of Grudges will know their name.

Go the squats. Welcome to heresy. Early Epic Space marine was what first introduced me to the warhammer worlds. I now play space hulk with my 6yr old son. It is amazing how things change. Enjoy your time here at heresy online. I think you will find it to your liking.

Doh! That's right. We started with Space Hulk as well. I had forgotten. We had all the expantions up to the Tyranids - though we did not get a chance to play that rule set. Now if I had a spare $100 I would snach up the new Space Hulk game!!! Especially since my wife has enjoyed playing Epic Eldar and laughs at my recollections of how much fun Space Hulk was and wants to try it herself!

Spinner, my wife, has shown intrest in the Tau since I have been trying, very unsuccessfuly, to play them in DoW and she likes the voice tracks - though I must admit to being a bit leery after reading everyone's assesment of them. Since I'm not certain our daughter is willing to try and take on her brother in another game, I figure I'll steer the wife towards the Eldar, the army our daughter 'claimed'.

I wish I had a good suggestion on how to get your dad into wargaming, Chumbalaya, especially if he's close to my age, that happy decade of 40s-50s, as free time shrinks in the face of life, BUT if you have access to Space Hulk or Blood Bowl you might have a chance. Both of those games are stand alone with little in the way of complex rules (ie. no army building, stats, explotions)
