PostSubject: Another noob joins the ranks   Thu Jan 21, 2010 9:06 am

Havenít even bought my first army yet, still on the fence. I plan on showing up at Up Up and Away Saturday to watch a little and learn. D&D experience from high school in the mid 80ís, and still have my pewter figures (and painting more now), and possibly the books/characters if I dig through the basement deep enough.

I think if I get a basic understanding of the rules and flow of the game, Iíll be hooked. Takes a little bit to get ďinto itĒ, but after that, full steam ahead. See you soon.

either way when you first get your hands on your first plastic army kit...the smell of the plastic turns you over to the dark side known as GW. LOL

Welcome! And I'll see you Saturday!

Yeah, I think you'll get a good feel for 40k at UU&A. Though, i do have to say, you may want to avoid watching me play, i'm not very good LOL

Don't worry, CJ, you'd still be able to mop me up, I think. LOL Smile The last three mini-tourneys I've been in I've come in last in each.... Out of 9 games, I won 2, I think.

PostSubject: Popped my 40K cherry today   Sat Feb 20, 2010 6:46 pm

I bought my army a few weeks ago, put it together, and finally played a game today at the mini tournament at SciFi City.

Got my ass kicked, but had alot of fun doing it, so that's what counts. Thanks Joe for putting up with the total noob and "ok, now what do I do?" for a few hours.
