Good morning all,

 

I thought it appropriate I drop by here and say a BIG HELLO!

 

I'm an old timer who used to play some WHF back when I was a Yoof - not sure what edition it was but it was back around the time of Gorkamorka. Unfortunately, the Old World has been rent asunder and perished and we now have AoS which I'm sure is great - it's just the lore doesn't particularly appeal to me.

 

I always liked the look of 40K but the entry barrier was just too much, especially when I was already invested in WHF. So, I dabbled here and there over the years.

 

I now find myself knocking on 30 years of age with a toddler of my own and a mortgage and I thought to myself; hey! why not take up a hobby. you guessed it, there was really no doubt which hobby it would be.

 

So here I am - I've invested a little of cash upfront into an airbrush setup which I've been playing with and I've got the Dark Imperium starter along with the Space Marine Codex and Imperial Armour: Adeptus Astartes. I'm going to be focusing on the Rift Stalkers - for those that don't know that's the Raven Guard Ultima Founding Successor.

 

I'll probably setup a little hobby log in the WIP section or something, anyway enough rambling from me. See you around!

 

Regards,

 

S.

Welcome back, I've just returned home after a decade long absence myself. WHFB is gone and 40K is a different beast altogether. 

 

Here's to a fresh start. :)

Welcome Sylvius, your never to old to return to the hobby, personally I kinda gave up on fantasy myself after Age of Sigmar  well that was until a friend pointed out the war scrolls and turned me onto the Empire, ended up making a state detachment around hand gunners instead of ranks of melee and Priests instead of magic users. that way I could go for a whole feel of it's magic fault so we're gonna throw a lot in with science.

 

One piece of advice surf E-bay for cheap model parts or models it'll be cheaper at times than just buying it from the store, I swear the prices are just insane these days even more so than used to be @_@
