Default Noob to 40K

Hello, I've been playing 40K for a few months now and I've been really enjoying it. I did well in all three of my battles at Cangames a few weekends back when I borrowed a friends Chaos space marine army. They awarded me the 'best general' trophy for my performance and now I simply can't get enough of the game.

I like diversity and strategy so I've found the Imperial Guard a good fit. Hopefully within the next few months I'll be able to get an army of my own started.

For now I'm just trying to figure out the subtle nuisances of the IG and determine what kind of models I should start off with once I've narrowed down the forces I'll be fielding.

Looking forward to talking with you all.
Of all the things I've killed, I think I'll miss you the most...

Ah, I see. Well, welcome to Tau Online and more importantly welcome to the Imperial Guard, the Hammer of the Emperor Ya, everyone gets confuse with IG at first but you'll catch on and will understand how are they organized etc :P Just to get you started:
10 9 Commandments of God What a newbie should do:
1. Thou must read the rules
2. Thou must use of proper grammar and spelling; use the spell checker
3. Thou shall not spamming unless it's here ;D
4. Thou shall be polite; don't flame people 8)
5. Thou shall not resurrect old topics; necromancy is heresy of the highest level here in TO :-\
6. Thou shall not double post; use the 'Modify Message' button to edit your post ^-^
7. Thou shall use the Search function to find a topic first before putting up a new one :P
8. Thou must read the stickies of the various Boards first
9. Thou shall not create 'X vs Y' thread or anything of that sort; it's a spawn pool for flames

So, I'll be seeing more of you in the IG board then see you soon

Welcome wolfedale, to TO, one of the best forums out there! I also play Guard, but I did it for the tanks (they're like cookies, but Guard style). Hope to see you around on the IG board.

If you want to dump firepower into your enemy until not even dental records will be enough to identify them, you play Imperial Guard.
