Default another new guy to WH

Howdy,
I've been playing historical miniatures for some 18 years. Before that is was all boardgames (hexes, etc).

Now I've moved on to the world of 40K. I've seen games at many cons going back to around 1992 or so at dragoncon in Atlanta GA. It always interested me, but I had so much time and money in historical figs that I didn't switch until now.

My kids are a little older, I am less dogmatic about historical details, and frankly the historical gaming community is somewhat jaded from reliving the same world for decades. Currently, I have 1000 points of Tau (static), and am fresh new to the rules.

I will post a list for critique at some time soon, and perhaps some pics of my figs once they are done.

Great forum BTW,

Oh no.

So you're an "old one" too? You have kids?
That's good as we have a lot of adults here too.

Yes old and wise...well old. Yes I have 3 boys (19,13,2.5). 13 wants to play dark eldar, but I told him to get a job first. I've been wargaming awhile now, so my move to WH is as natural as moving from Risk to Axis&Allies.

Still love the attack bun thing in your avatar!
