Hello all,

Just wanted to quickly introduce myself.  I live in Jarrow which to those who dont know is a small town in North East England.

I got back into the wargame hobby a couple of years ago after playing a little when I was younger (I'm now 35) and started really because I loved painting the minis.  I have less time to play and find the likes of WFB and W40K rulesets a real big hurdle as I just dont have the time to dedicate to reading pages and pages of rules and then trying to remember them when I play quite infrequently so I've mainly been playing Malifaux for the last 12 months.

I've followed Mantic over the last 12 months and my 2 boys (9 year old twins) have an Undead and Elf army which we've played KOW.  I find the simple ruleset easy to learn, easy to teach my boys and quick to reference if I havent played in a while.

My love is definitely Sci-Fi so I've been watching Warpath with high hopes and after playing my first game yesterday I love it.

I'll be attending the Warpath Launch day in November so thought I'd say hi here and join the community.

Andy.

Hi Andy

Welcome to the madhouse. I'll be at the launch day too, so hope to see you and say hi. I'm really looking forward to Warpath as I have never gotten into 40K (despite selling the game as a GW manager for ten years). The streamlined nature of the rules with focus on playing the opponent not the rules is a major draw for me. Plus I really love the models.

I currently collect/paint and game with Elves, Undead (my favourite), Dwarfs and Orcs (second favourite).

All the best
JP

Hi Andy - good to have you join us for the ride.

My girls show a passing interest in the hobby... I really must try harder!

Start up a thread to show us your painting skills Smiley

Excellent!  Glad to have you aboard.  My best friend has often said that he's not raising a son, he's raising a wargaming opponent, so it sounds like you're on a similar track.  Smiley

We're glad you found us over here.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

@ JP - I'll keep an eye out for you at the Launch Day.  I'm travelling down alone (atm) so it'll be good to meet some folks.  I've picked up a ticket for the Golem painting session too as if I'm travelling all that way I might as well try everything.  The 6 hour round trip should be fun  Shocked

@ mattjgilbert - So far my painting has mainly been limited to some GW and Wyrd Miniatures stuff but I'll happily post some pictures when I get home from work tonight.

@Llew - much to my wifes dismay my boys seem really interested in the hobby! It means I get to buy more toys and legitimatly have 3 armies on the go at any one time without too much of an inquisition!  Grin

@asgard-studio Thanks - I'll definitely want to see and play a demo with your minis after seeing them on the Mantic Blog.

I'm also bringing along one of my sons (1 half of my twins) so I'll see you then.

We got Undead (mine!) Elves (alfie's) and Orcs (Jardel's)- I still not beaten Jardel's Orcs yet- although I have finally managed a draw!!

Mine are a little younger at 9 (well will be a few days after the Warpath Launch Day).

Sam (the little guy coming with me) has Undead, Adam has Elves and I did have Dwarfs although I sold them recently and have been eying up a new army (possibly Orcs) which I may start on after some purchases at the launch day.

Sam is fanatical about his minitures already and picks up the game so quickly which really puts me to shame.
