i thought i could do a post were people can talk about how they first got into warhammer (fantasy or 40k) it was my mate that got me into it when i was about 5,6 years old. he collected catachan and i had Space marine, im now 14 and ive gone through,40k: space marines, catachans, steel leigon, cadians, tyranids, tau lord of the rings: elves, rohan, isangard: mordor, then Gondor and Fantasy: Empire and Goblins right now im building up a gobbo army to start learning fantasy, again (i was a long time ago)
I havn't started tabletop because its so expensive, but my friends did get me started cause they played it, so i went to gamesworkshop.com and eventually started reading the books and playing dawn of war
i was looking into games in 2004 to find the best reviewed RTS, because there was a load of crappy RTS games during that time. Read reviews n scores for DoW, they were good, thought i gave this game a chance n BOOM, I love it. The thing i love most about DoW is the animation, it is just completely awesome, love the sync kills too. Next RTS game ill will be getting due to come out in early 2007 is Supreme Commander, if u guys seen the trailer yet. this game also got me inspired to get Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning being developed my Mythic Entertainment. Though not the same era, sounds n looks a lot better then WoW from Blizzard, i love Diablo franchise is all. On top of that, WAR will support the PhysX Accelerator n the game is due Q4 2007. remember, Necrons RULE!!!!!!!
It was i think 1999 and my friend came up to me and sed hey 1 of my other friends plays this really kool looking game where u collect and command an army against other people. So then we went to GW and i started with tyranids and eventually i played every race and realized the race i like the most are the Daemonhunters cuz i love the GK the SM and the IG so they worked perfectly/
i cant remember exactly...but i think my bro had this WD from ages back and i read it once...got interested..then left it. a few years later, my friend persuaded me to collect lotr, i then collected lotr and Tau at the same time. this was costing me a lot of money, so i had got bored of lotr by then anyway so then i collected Tau..then space wolves. i noticed dow had come out and didnt really take much notice of it. a few yrs later my friend got it and said it was very good. i bought myself a copy and the rest is kinda self explanitary.
I was 6 and i walked into the store one day and i really liked undead things then and still do so i bought a undead Chariot. Now i am hooked and have almost every army.... Went to games-day today bought the 3rd horus heresy book Galaxy in Flames book i read the first chapter, Fucking sweet!. and bought a Forge world Hq, and some Cadian upgrade packs and even got to see the Death korps of frieg for real. They are so nice! most of the new orcs got sold out with in 8 mins.
When i was like 7 my m8 had a big army or marines, and i played a game round his house and decided i liked it. I completely forgot about them, but luckily my brother remembered me talking about them, and when i was like 10 i got a tactical squad, and i went on from there, only ever collected marines, but i stopped playing coz no1 i knew played and my nearest GW was miles away so now my marines just sit on a shelf and do nothing :(
my cousin got me into 40k as he collected black templars so i went for sm aswell now i have eldar and ig .. as for the game i love RTS games and as it was named the best i thought thats the game for me
I post in His Glorious Name
28th December 2004
1991-92 somewhere around that, i bought a couple of "cool looking mini tanks with claws" in a RPG/Gaming store. We then found out these were ork tanks and then we discovered Epic with the very 1st french WD thx to a friend.
Well, since then we've been collecting a huge amount of stuff, slowly turning towards 40k only, mainly due to the neverending improvement of quality.
i started by playing lord of the rings lol, then a saw some pics of the space marines and i was converted
