I was directed here from the Dragon*Con page on facebook, and was told this is the place to be!
I am completely.. and I mean completely.. new to WH 40k. I have played Dawn of War 2 & Chaos Rising, as well as Space Marine on my xbox.. so as you can tell my understanding of the lore is limited only to the video games. I also used to play the heck out of Warhammer Online back when it was new... but I know thats a whole other thing.
I've always wanted to get into the minis, and love going into the games room at cons and just watching, and thinking how much fun it would be to get into. So I finally bit the bullet and bought myself a few of my first minis, some random Sisters of Battle. Also bought myself the rulebook because I have no idea what I am doing.. and unfortunately don't know anyone else who plays. I am hoping I will be able to rope my husband into it when he sees me creating my tiny army.. otherwise I will probably have to brave going to a shop that runs games and give it a shot with complete strangers. =\
And as if that isn't enough, I've started on a Sister of Battle cosplay... which is sort of what catapulted all of this. Saw some jaw-dropping SoB costumes at Dragon*Con and just said "YES, MUST DO". But I'd prefer to do it right and not go in with only what I know of WH 40k from the video games....
So all of this just comes full circle as an excuse to finally get into it... even if I have to do it on my own. But hopefully I'll have you guys to help me along the way
