Hi there,

 

is there anywhere in this Forum a Guide for those who are (more or less) totally new to the Hobby? A guide that helps choosing and building the first Army, starting to paint, learn the rules etc. etc.? I looked in some Subforum but haven't found anything like that, yet.

 

1000 Thank-yous in advance!

Sounds good, but may be slightly biased towards non-xenos msn-wink.gif

Of course, of course! Strictly Power Armour only!

I'm not keen on any Visitations of the the Spanish Inquisition. ;D

I like the idea of this. I can think of a couple of ways to set one up. I'll put it to the Mods, see if we can come up with something.

 

Cheers,

Jono

I would offer my help, but I AM new to the hobby.

At least I could add some Newby-Questions I have, regarding the Hobby. :)

There is this by Valerian. It is Space Wolves focused but should work for other Space Marine factions as well.

It's part of this thread for those curious about or working on Space Wolves.

Do the other sub forums not have a stickied resource thread?

some of them do, Vykryl, but they're reliant on people making an initial thread that is well written on a specific subject in that sub forum, and then brought to the relevant moderati's attention so they add it to a stickied resource thread that has hyperlinks to these individual threads.  Index Astartes for example has one, which keeps a log of threads for each known GW/FW created successor chapter of unknown founding.  i've gone through and tried to update it a few months ago, but sometimes things slip through the cracks when its not brought to your attention.
