Surprisingly this thread hasn't been discussed yet...


How long you been playing?

I think Jigplums introduced me to the game the day we met when I was in year 7.
(11 years old)

15 Years ago!

How long have you been playing or have a cool story on how you were introduced to the game?

10 years, I think. It could be 11, my brain goes fuzzy when trying to remember details like that, especially when I haven't slept all night in an attempt to reset the sleep cycle.

Lets see, I was 11 got started with Fantasy, that got me into 40K, and roleplay and I am now......... so carry the 2........ square root of 29....

Its no good, no matter what I do with the maths it always comes out at 18 years. :shok:

Ah well, its kept me off the streets :grin:, seriously though wargaming and roleplaying are (imo) the best hobbies in the world.

I started my hobby experience over 25 years ago, painting miniatures for all the various RPGs my older brother played (and that I got recruited into being a part of).

About the time my high school experience started, I discovered Warhammer, but never really got into it past the original version of Warhammer fantasy RPG.

Flash forward a few years to my days in uniform: A random side-trip into one of the local game stores where I was stationed (as it was close by to where I was going to get myself a new tattoo) introduced me to Necromunda. They had a huge table set up, and as it was kind of a slow day, the guy at the store ran a demo game for me and my buddy.

Instantly hooked, was I.

Necromunda led to my first delving into 40K, back in 2nd. Edition days... and i haven't been able to quit since, barring some brief sabbaticals.

I haven't actually played an actual game since '01, but I'm still an obsessive painter and collector.

So, in short... collecting twenty years, playing about thirteen.
