Welcome, Sjus and Arskittar!

Hope to see photos of your armies, Sjus. I'm especially interested in the late medieval royal Danish Brets.

Arskittar, tell us more about your DoW Empire!

Hello, my name is Adam and i just signed up to the website/forum.

I have recently had time to sort through some of my boxes of Games Workshop, and i am hoping to get time to paint some of them. I was last into the hobby in the mid nineties, with a small flurry of ebay purchasing about 4 years ago. At the moment i am more interested in painting and maybe some light conversion than playing.

Hoping to get some ideas and advice. I am not that good at the painting but enjoy it. This week i have taken 4 broken henchmen from advanced Heroquest and turned them into banner men (standard bearers), i have painted a Mighty Empires knight, attached a pennant and shield symbol to create a hero.

I have a few figures to go but i am looking at using militia models as heroes in groupings of older miniatures that only had one or two poses. I should end up with a 500+ point Altdorf troop.

Hello All,

My name is Shane, I've recently come back to the hobby after at least a decade away from it, re-discovering all the magic in those dusty boxes under the stairs!

Discovering the whole Age of Sigmar actually enraged me, but that's for another thread I'm sure, and a couple years late.

Enjoying seeing those red and white regiments back on my table top again, and have greenskins to slay!

Hello, everyone!
I'm Niccolò, 24 years old from Milan, Italy! I must reveal to you, with tears in my eyes, that my first warhammer miniatures in my life were two...bretonnian knights!  :Ohmy: I expect to be "interrogated" soon by some zealous witch hunters!
By the way, I was 5 and my mind was full of "honor and damsels in distress" crap: later I did the right thing and began collecting the glorious denizens of the Empire!
I'm not a skilled gamer, unfortunately, because of the dispersion of my gaming fellows in various cities of this country and also due to my lack of time to dedicate to the relaxant duty of painting... I'm trying to bring to life a regiment of 35 greatswords, a mighty metal steam tank (the plastic one is too much...unrealistic, with its lack of weight) and an Ulrican war altar, but there's too much to do. I have a 5160 points Empire Army, mainly composed of heroes, cavalry, artillery and 2 Tanks, with few core troops.
I discovered this forum while searching for tactics and reviews and I was delighted to find such a nice place to discuss and learn so many tricks and crafts!
I beg you pardon for my unskilled English language: tv series with english subtitles are not a good method of learning!
Thank you and see you around!

round of applause for you all
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span
