New Recruit

Post by Rarka on Fri May 06, 2011 12:21 am

Hey all! New guy round here, zero experience in gaming but done warhammer 40k modelling for years. I recently bought a pack of knights, and decided i want to start gaming with them Smile
Always loved GK's but never game enough to spend so much on metal models (they're a bitch to model, scratch easy, and no options.. Plus price)

So I too am jumping on the bandwagon with the new release ^_^
I just bought the codex, Crowe, a second box of knights and a set of termies, can't wait till they arrive! (3 weeks delivery from maelstrom games - a worthwhile saving).
Keen to have a crack at blogging, for myself to see the stage by stage progress of this army, as well as any feedback and advice I could receive from you guys Smile if that's all good to do on your painting/modeling section (some quality stuff in there that I've seen!)

Already built one set of knights, had a great time with all the options, and I also hijacked my dreadnaught, rhino and terminator librarian from my crimson fists army Smile they look far cooler in GK colours!

Great to see there's such a fanbase already, you guys are the original knights, must have alot of people like me flooding your ranks now Wink

Cheers for making such a great site! Very Happy

Welcome!
I would recommend wordpress as a nice easy system to start blogging on, but there are plenty available!

True! Same price for 10 tactical marines as 5 knights.. Haha I'm gonna put that down to the fact games workshop charges over effectiveness in gameplay more than cost of production lol!

And thanks for the welcome all Smile

Welcome Brother!
I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

Greetings younglings in the art of knighthood.

I am Klomster, just about the only one who is not hyped about the new grey knights.

But i do like the new knight models, and the dreadknight so i will lilkely comment on anything you put up in the painting section.

Espescially if it's not fitting, then as you see i am a moderator and will moderate your behinds Razz

Don't worry, just kidding.
Just act nice and show us awesome pics of your work and you will fit in in no time.
