I've been a fan of 40k for about 25 years now, but have only seriously gotten into the hobby in the past year. I initially caught the bug as a kid when my parents got me the 2nd edition set for xmas, but of course I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and me and my cousin resorted to throwing the dice at each others models and whichever ones fell over were dead
So, at the request of my wife to get a hobby after a spending far too long staring at the tv, I decided to give 40k another shot, via Kill Team, which I thought would be a more manageable (and affordable!) way to get into the hobby. A year on and I've got almost 3000pts of Death Guard, and have played far more games of 40k than I have Kill Team
Obviously, I'm MASSIVELY looking forward to the new codex release tomorrow and spreading the grandfather's gifts on the tabletop as soon as we are able to again!!
Aside from Death Guard, I've also started a side army of Chaos Space Marines, continuing my love of all things heresy! They are also aligned to Nurgle (The Purge), but allow me to bring some of the more cool toys that you can't bring under pure Death Guard.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing projects and ideas
Thanks also to James for inviting me!
