Default Hello, I'm new

Figured I'd start out by saying hi to everyone on here... or more specifically the ones who are reading this post.

Here's a little about me:
I have been wanting to get into 40k for about 2 years now, and have done a bunch of research and reading trying to find what army I wanted to play. I settled on the Tau - because I like the look and their backstory the most, i feel I can relate with their mantra very well, that greater good of the tau and all for one - one for all stuff.

Finally after 2years of searching I finally purchased a used army with paints and a case (thought this would be a better and more cost effective way to start). Now I have some work ahead of me in figuring out what I have and what I can do with it (and that is for another thread) I'll also have some stripping and remodeling I'm sure, yay I'm actually looking forward to the modelling aspect and that is one of the major draws to this hobby for me. Playing with the models after will be icing on the cake!!

Oh, I'm 30yrs old and happily married with one great 3yr old son, and I still play with toys

A-men and welcome aboard brother (I'm 37 with a 3yr old daughter). Yeah you need some help just ask we have a good core of folks will to help. I kinda did the same thing too, btw, read the background and fluff and did the "I'd rather be the bad mouthed good guys fighting for the greater good than just another ego stroker, blind slave or" well I wont even go into the chaos forces. As I was saying, welcome aboard.

Internet humour hard to get sometimes, and re-reading of course you were. Teach me to post thing after 4-5 hours of revision. I'm knacked.
