All righty then, here I am:

My screenname is Legofreak, on just about every forum I join, for reasons that will be made clear in a minute.
I first heard about Warhammer from a friend of mine that'd asked me to make some custom Lego minifigs for him. Seems his wife said he could play with Lego or Warhammer, but not both since both hobbies are a bit expensive. :D
Well, I had such a ball making the figs that I thought I'd find out some more info. I found the Black Library at my local bookstore and started buying Warhammer books. This led me to Warhammer 40K, once I read the Ultramarines Omnibus.
I was hooked.
I now have all sorts of Omnibi (?) and have expanded my personal Black Library to include Gaunts Ghosts, Space Marines, The Horus Heresy.. You get the idea.
Well, as I mentioned before I am a Legofreak, so I have started making various custom 40K minifigs (there's some other customs there, but I am most happy with my Ultramarine and my witchhunter).
I bought a space marine three pack for references, and enjoyed painting them, (and once I have the helmet and shoulder pads molded for casting I'll make a squad and post it) so I thought I'd get into making an army.
Lo and behold, at my new job (FedEx/Kinko's) one of the guys I work with is a WH40K NUT! So, he is going to teach me the ropes once I save up enough for an army-in-a-box. I really like the Space Marines, so I'll be making my own chapter, complete with backstory, and figure in the few months it'll take me to save up for the box set, I can make some terrain and such for displays. (by buying that set I'll actually save 90.00 USD!)
And finally (sorry for a not-so-brief introduction) I'll leave y'all a picture of me. It's a link so you can click for a bigger pic, and if you run into me at a Lego convention, or in the Santa Rosa CA Kinkos, say howdy. :D

P.S. - I found this site whilst looking for a place to trade extra sprues! Now I just need to get some extra sprues to trade. :D

Hiya Jacobite!
Collecting Lego or customizing Lego? :D
Probably more that collect Lego, but we customizers are growing daily.

As for questions, I have only a few hundred or so, but I thought I'd read up here first before I ask too many stupid ones. :wink:

Welcome to HO Lego.

I used to love legos as a child and still do as an adult. Only difference is that I use buying them for my son as my excuse to get more :mrgreen:
