I think the B&C community is a bit older than the majority. There was a time forums would be filled with eager, wide-eyed 13 year old idiots, (apologies if you are currently 13, both for the remark and the disappointing years that likely lay ahead for you) but they are mostly confined to Facebook or other forms of social media now.

30 and 11/12ths... It's kind of nice to see that I'm around the average age here.

Goddammit Cryptix, stop reminding me that I'm not one of the youngest people in this hobby so some references and benchmarks don't make sense tongue.png  I jest, I jest. 

 

YEAAAAAAh, Born in the '80's!  The, uh, late 80's... the latest 80's... 29 here! 

 

Post Scriptum; I just didn't want to break that '82 chain.  But, I did get into the hobby when I was 7 (with Ultramarines, of course) so I still got more than 20 years experience.  

I'll catch up to you in a couple of months, does it depress you too that we will be 30 next year?

 

28, 29 in December, so the big 30 is next year for me too (just). It's a weird feeling, the prospect of your 20s ending definitely seems like a threshold being crossed and I do wonder where on earth the time has gone. I feel like my uni graduation was just yesterday. Helpfully my Dad keeps reminding me that it only seems to disappear quicker the further you advance in years, so there's that to look forward too. One thing it is making me do hobbywise is assess my backlog vs. my productivity rate and think about selling some stuff...

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

'93. Playing since '02-03ish. I have models which are physically older than me.

 

I'm not quite sure how I feel about that.

Quiet at work on night shift so thoughts turn to random stuff. As my user name might suggest I'm somewhat mature. I've been gaming for over 30 years, mostly GW stuff but with a smattering of other systems thrown in now and again. I still have the same enthusiasm as I did when I was first hooked and I'm now at the crusty old age of 57. Anyone else care to share?

 

So ... apparently, sans out resident "immortals" (chickens ;)) ... I appear to be the second eldest to fess (yeah it's a word ... in the Appalacians) up.

 

circa. 1964

 

Five years removed from a year of chemo and still ticking. Never give up.

23, seems I'm on the younger end of the spectrum.  Most of the people at the store I play jokingly love to show me models they use that are older than I am.  I in turn like to see a stunty khorne berzerker slaughter my forces to further the jest.

29 and too young to be having a midlife crisis... 


They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.
