So I've been reading a lot of Warhammer blogs lately and got the mind to start my own. It's a terrible time for me to do so. Swamped at work. Project due for class soon. Holiday Season. With that in mind, it will probably be a bit before I really get into full swing with anything. Moving on...
A little bit about myself: I'm a 21 year old ginger kid from Maryland, USA. I've been playing Warhammer since this past January when I moved out of my parent's house and into an apartment with my now wife and a friend from college. He brought his old stuff with him that he hadn't used since 3rd Edition. I got hooked pretty quick because I'd always wanted to play.
Started with Daemons because I wanted to play Fantasy and he liked 40k better, though he had armies for both. Daemons worked for both. I've always been a fan of things Demonic and Undead. Didn't know what I was doing, spent too much money, burned out on Daemons when I realized the army I wanted I didn't really have the models for.
Got some Vampire Counts to play against my wife's Wood Elves a few months later. She put them together and hasn't touched them since. Awesome use of $100.
So at this point I got kind of disappointed that my two favorite Fantasy armies based on lore were also considered rather over powered.
Back to 40k: I tend to be kind of extremest. So I went from "OMG! RUSH ACROSS THE TABLE!!! CHAOS!" to "Oh noes! Stay away /shoot." with the Tau. Really, I liked the battle suits and drones.
My most common opponent is my roommate. He has High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, Space Marines, and Tyranids. Truth be told, I probably would've picked SM or the bugs if he didn't already have them. I'm glad he already had them at this point. Still <3 Dreadnoughts though. They're just cool.
I do think I'm going to head down to the tournament on Sunday to see Old Shatter Hands in action. I haven't been to our local shop to play much because, until a few weeks ago, I spent the last four years as a hardcore WoW raider. I got into the best guild on our server, MT'd Heroic Anub for the server first kill, and realized I didn't care. So I stopped playing.
I'm kind of rambling at this point just because I want to make a really long post to be able to format the blog better. I know it seems terribad at the moment, but I'm a junior programmer at Breakaway Games Inc. and spend all day on a computer. If nothing else you'll eventually be able to come here for any new Warhammer related information because I got spoiled by things like mmo-champion giving me new information as soon as it happened.
That should be long enough. I'll get pictures of what I have so far, what I'm working towards, and more interesting stuff than this soon. Back to work....
