"In 2003, a Warhammer 40K player is caught in a freak accident in the Eye of Reality, causing his codices and models to be blown into an orbit that returns him to the game table - over 5 editions later…"
So, anything new while I've been gone?
When I left the hobby fifteen years ago, I couldn't have guessed it would ever be like it is now. Wow! I started at the beginning of 3rd edition with the Black Templar and Dark Eldar boxed set, collected some of the earlier edition books and models for the game's background and coolness factors. I dove into Space Marines - blue, red, green, and wolfy varieties. Dabbled with Orks because... Waaagh! My last army was Necrons, first using rules from the old White Dwarf magazines. I had a massive metal army of them (which only had like four or five different models at the time - I left during the coming of the 'plastic' warriors and their monoliths).
Now I see many great looking advances, such as Adeptus Mechanicus, Deathwatch, Imperial Knights, Inquisitors, and so on.
Where's an old new player to begin?
Thanks for listening to an old grog ramble.
