I’ll give a brief summary of my history with Warhammer 40k and what I have planned for the future.
I started getting into Warhammer 40k during a summer vacation at my grandparent’s house when I was around 11 years old. We went to a comic/game shop in their town and that is where I discovered the Warhammer universe. I was quickly drawn in by the darker environments of the 40k world, it was much different than any Scifi I had been exposed to up until then. The gritty, desolate art and the real scenes of hopeless warfare caught my and my brother’s attention. A starter set was purchased. I spent the summer painting a few guys and reading up on the lore. However, as is the story with many children of that age I was fickle and something else caught my attention. The set was sold and Warhammer 40k was forgotten for the most part.
Fast forward 6 years and we have Dawn of War hitting the market. My brother and I played the DoW series of games religiously through all the expansions and we enjoyed the Warhammer 40k universe virtually for many years. In 2008 I picked up my first Warhammer 40k novel “Dark Apostle.” It was neat to get a more detailed view of the universe through the novel, but overall I wasn’t that impressed. I decided to give one more book a go before writing off the Warhammer 40k novels entirely. It just so happened to be “Horus Rising.” A week later I had read the entire trilogy and forced my brother to read it. We fell in love with the lore and started reading wikis, more novels, and codices. Anything that had more lore, we wanted it.
Finally I decided what the hell and jumped back into the actual table top game. I bought the Black Reach set so we could get a few game going quickly. From there on out, I have been hooked. I started painting miniatures, modeling scenery, and devising tactics to use on the battlefield.
I hope my site encourages new players to take the plunge and offers long time enthusiasts new ideas to use on their battlefields. If anything, I hope people enjoy the site and keep the Warhammer 40k spirit alive!
