40k: '99 The local mall sold it and they started a gaming club in one of the stores. (wasn't a GW store, more like a Wizards of the Coast) Fantasy: '06 Chaos looks awesome in Fantasy...just started a few weeks ago...hoping to get the new Rulebook sometime.

I got into 40k when i was about 8 or so.....back in the day...before it was called 40k i think. My dad used to get miniatures catalogues and i saw a pic of a Tyranid Warrior...old school style...and from then on i've been collecting. Never actually played the TT game but love painting and creating terrains.

Well...

It was a long way ago...in a far away suburb...:) We were teens and with some pals we decided to go in the RPG shop of the capital. Here, I bought some ugly looking figures to play with in "Space Opera" (A SF Role Playing Game from FGU) that a father's friend mastered for us. Those figures saw a game related to 'em arriving maybie 2 months later and a friend bought it and we were 3 upon it to try and translate it bit by bit. After 2 months of efforts, we got our first 40K Rogue Trader with motley squads battling one another. I remember fondly my sqaud od Space Marines with one or two Star Wars tin figures in it. I got the Land Speeder (Woa) we scratch built as White Dwarf shown and I lost it on my first turn. We didn't quite understand the rules well, I submit my LS to its move and its speed made him crash against the crashed Imperial Battleship (ok, the shoebox). We didn't understand that movement rules perfectly...:lol:

back in 95 when i was 10 or 11 i was in a antique shop of all places and they had this copy of space crusade, that somebody had sold or thrown out or something. Any way i had no idea how or why it was in a place that ususaly sells old tables chairs and books but i was transfixed with the space marines, and it was love at first sight.

I got into WH about 7/8 years ago, when I was in devon of all places. There was a tiny little toy shop, full of wierd and wondrful things, and there was a few boxes of warhammer. I was hooked instantly, finding out where the nearest shop was to me. I haven't been for a few years, but thats how I go into WH.

I guess when i was little i got something it might have been a catalogue or WD but, it scared me with the beastmen and daemons.( I was little!) When my friend took me to Games Workshop i remebered and started collecting the things( 40k only though lol). That one closed down a while ago and the close ones are far away or in bad neighbourhoods so it has kinda gurgled but, im starting to get back on trakk.
