Default There are some who call me...Tim?

Yep, my name is really Tim. You can see the general points of me in my profile.

As far as 40k goes, I'm quite new to it. I don't know how many of you know about the Table Top game Warzone but it was around up until about...I don't know...8 or so years ago? Anyway, it was based on the board game Mutant Chronicles (recently made into a crappy movie) and was a CCG for awhile by the name of Doom Trooper (which I never had the pleasure of playing).

Anyway, I played Warzone back in the day until the company went belly up. One of my good friends who I played with moved to California shortly thereafter. Recently he got me to buy Dawn of War with him and I loved it and it made me wanna get into the table top so there you go. I chose to play Tau because I love the old-school look to the mechs. They remind me of mechs from the 80s (when I was a kid). The other main reason I chose them is because I love how they have the Tau with their high technology, big rifles and rail guns and mechs, but at the same time they have the more primitive, cannibalistic Kroot and insect-like Vespid to help them out. The contrast is intriguing to me.

So I bought up some units (spent a few hundred bucks) and last weekend I flew down to San Francisco (brought my "army" with me) and my friend taught me to play. I did pretty well and had a great time. I love modding and painting my models as much if not more than playing so I've been spending time recently doing that as well.

Well there's my history with the game, only played 3 games of it.

Cheers.

There's people here handing out advice all over the place who've played less!

I think you might come into conflict with Tim and Timjim though =P

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.
