Default What age did you start? and do you have any regrets from collecting?

I personally began when I was 10.

My regrets, ruining my first army (necrons) and sell off my original Catachans. Other than that I have no real regrets.

I think if I had known I would have started later when I could appreciate the models more.


What about you?

I started when I was 13.

My first army was guard... and it still is. Though I have branched out a little...

I think I started when I was about 12 or 13.

I sometimes regret starting two fantasy armies and not finishing them. I was in a local club where fantasy was played, but I let both projects die once I wasn't playing regularly.

I started before I was 10, not sure of the exact date though. Probably just 8-9.

My only regret is falling into the group that I did, which focuses more on effectiveness and simplicity of usage than balance and the hobby aspect of it. Would be so many more fun games if I didn't completely slaughter my enemies every time because they can't guess my strategy and they tell me theirs...

I started around 13 or 14 I think. No real regrets but somehow over the years I've gotten sick of my Tau army. First cause it never lost and now cause 5th Edition makes my old mech list pretty crappy so... yea not much interrested there.

I've now become more of a fan of throwing a hundred Space Wolves across the field and smiling at the destructive results.

14...I think. It was a long time ago...back when the miniatures were carved from solid rock and the game was a futuristic game called Warhammer 40.

Started at 12 and fell in love.

No regrets other than the fact that I've probably only assembled and painted half the stuff I've bought. But I will finish it all someday :

I LOVE THIS HOBBY!

Started at 19 up until that point didn't have the funds to support a hobby like warhammer, I found out about dwarfs for fantasy and identified with them, I collected too much and ended up overwhelmed, after a lot of defeats and an army only 10% painted I stopped for a little while.

I came back with Tomb Kings keen not to repeat my mistake with the dwarfs and have been going strong with the hobby ever since, just paint one unit at a time and don't go overboard spending money (having a wife helps a lot with that).

My regret is that I never finished my dwarf army however I have sold it so I don't have to look at my failure anymore. :-\

Started when I was 15 or 16.

My only regret: Only having painted (so far) 1,500 points out of something like 13,000 (total across all armies)

Need to get cracking on that!
