Default I'm Jumping In

Hey there, guys and gals. I'm over in the US, where 40k is less known and annoyingly costly. I'm new to the whole thing, I'm still learning some of the basic rules, and I'm glad to be doing it. I'm really excited to start my own in life army (I play on VASSAL because I can't afford real models right now, but I plan on them soon).

Things I'd like people to know:
- I am new to 40k. If I raise a question that should seem stupidly obvious, I beg that you humor me. I still get a lot of things confused.
- I'm an Eldar fan. Favorite unit: Dark Reapers. I shall be spending most of my time here on the forums in the Eldar category, since I want to learn as much about their tactics as I can.
- I'm not much of a tactician. I'm hoping that I can pick up some general ideas on how to manage an army.
- Any friendly inquiries or comments are fully welcomed, as I hope you all accept my own.

Thanks a lot, guys - this place looks like a resource that budding 40k players like myself cannot pass up! I'm really looking forward to learning a lot around here.

-Tigs

Welcome to TO! I'm quite new to 40k too, and I have been spending time on the Tau board, and it has helped tremendously! Another thing, 40k is actually cheaper in the US than the in the UK.

:shifty: Watch out for the cookies...

I live in Australia, and from what I know, 40k is expensive everywhere. :

Hello and welcome to the site TigStripe, I find that buying models second hand (like off Ebay). I was never much of a tactician myself, but recently I've been getting quite good, mostly from forums like the one I'm posting on now, and just experience. Hope you enjoy yourself here and good luck.

Welcome to the forums, and don't worry, we're pretty forgiving as far as newbie questions are . After all, we were all newbies at one time
