Default I guess I should introduce myself...finally...

Yeah, so I didn't pop in here first. Sorry guys. My names Steve, though I go by Verjigorm on the 'net. I'm a dedicated geek, who plays alot of GURPS and I used to play Warhammer Fantasy.

My fantasy army was a Khorne beasts/mortals army, so I had no shooting. When I got into 40k, I knew I wanted a shooty army. At first I wanted to do a mechanized Guard army, but I couldn't find a codex anywhere. So I picked up Tau and Space Marines, to get an idea for the game.

The Tau appealed to me right off, what with their whole combined arms, thoroughly modern approach to combat. The shoot-n-scoot is simply awesome, and it gives me a chance to try out AirLand Battle doctrine(the US army's current doctrine). I'm having alot of fun with my tau, and I'm almost done painting all my firewarriors. I need to go in and do the next three colors of camo on the 6 or 8 of them waiting to for that step, and start on the last 6.

Anyhow, here I am.

Hey, I didn't get around to posting an introduction for several months, so there's no need to apologize.

Here's hoping you enjoy your many visits, and that you don't encounter any ninja scorpions......

Same thing with me, except I waited 10 days :. You know what to avoid so good luck.

Well, people go for Tau for their precision firepower and their mech look. People go for Imperial Guard for their mass firepower and the "Trooper with just a lasgun and flak armor against the horror of The Warp, ork Waaagh and other enemies of Mankind" inspiration.

Yeah, I have Chaos and Tau at the moment. Tau rule ;D.... So do chaos....

But Hopefully next month (Or maybe this month) I will be starting a guard army, because as Zen Ai said, I'm in love with their massed firepower, especially their tanks ^-^ *drools* Their heavy weapons teams look fun, too ;D

Anyway, enough about me, more about you (No, I'm not hitting on you). Tau are exactly the shooty army you want, they're fun to play with, too. Broadsides are your little angels, too. AP1, so any glancing hit goes straight to penetrating, and S10, so any wartrukk you're playing against (Orks) or any other lightly armoured vehicle, as long as you hit, will always ge a penetrating hit! ;D FunFun for the Tau!!!!!!!

To be specific about me: I'm a 24 year old who works for UPS. I throw boxes for a living, which gives me plenty of time to build 40k army lists at work.

I have 1 son, and a semi-adopted son, both are approximately 1-2years old. I'm a rogue thinker, who holds iconoclast positions.

I'm a fairly skilled painter, but don't ask for any pics because the camera's batteries are dead.

I'm well-read on a wide variety of subjects, but specialize in history, of the ancient variety.

Semi-adopted is when you go down to see the kid be born, shell out a ridiculous amount of money to move the kid and the girl in with you, quit your job because the girl doens't liek you being out of town, move again, cut your hair, and finally lose the girl and the kid. All while you help raise an infant and become attached.
