Default Hello fellow wargamers.

Hello my fellow wargamers. I am Kevin Valentine Fischer a.k.a. Tauruler1. I've been a Warhammer 40k fan since February of last year.
I'd seen Games Workshop in the past but was afraid to go into them. Thinking that nerds and freaks go to there. Reason why, the Tyranids scared the hell out of me!
That changed until last year. Me and my brother were at Potomac Mills, VA, waiting for my sister and her date to catch up to us. We weren't too far from the GW there. While we were waiting, we kept on hearing cheers, applause's and screams of anguish. Out of curiosity, we walked in and the moment we walked in, we became appealed by the models. Appalled by the positive energy in the air. We talked to a few of the gamers and played a demo. I choose tyranids as my brother chosen the space marines and I won!!!
We bought the starter kit Battle of Macragge one month later and ever since then, about once a week, we battle. Twice a month, we go to GW and battle. I really enjoy this hobby and hope others do as well.

Welcome to TauOnline. Please read the rules, observe proper forum etiquette and generally be a nice person.

But on to important matters:

Soon you will meet the standard forum welcome crew. Some of them (Zen Ai) will accuse you of being a Xeno, and thus a traitor. Some of them (Bubgum) will argue with the others, just because. Some of them will welcome you as I have done. Some of them (FT, or whatever he's going by these days) will warn you of ninja scorpions. This is part of the standard greeting process, and there is no need to be worried. Just bribe FT and you'll most likely survive.

So, welcome to the forums and have a nice stay.

Welcome! Just curious but why call yourself 'Tauruler1' if you play Tyranids? Anyway, enjoy the forum.

The tyranids were in the battle of Macragge starter set. I traded them in for a broadside and man, that was the best trade I made. That day, me and my brother played against this Tyranid player. He got wiped out. The nid won the scenario as I received far less casualties than usual and had my army mostly intact. Thanks to the broadside.
I remember in this one battle, the Broadside wiped out half of my opponents army thanks to good hits and very large explosions.

Of course you forgotten me, the guy who whacks the living daylight out of Zen Ai, Bubgum and anyone in the motley crew of the welcoming community who try to scare the members with their zealousness. :P

Welcome to the forums, Tauruler1.

I wish my mondays are happy days. They tend to be the most stressful day in my life.

Saturday is play day for me. Designer Boardgames, 40k, everything goes.
