Hello everyone, this is my first post on Warhammer-Empire, but far from my first time here!!
I have been playing Warhammer since my sophomore year of highschool, which was...my god...7 years ago.
-I played 40k for 2 years before discovering Fantasy.
-My first army was Empire, of which I acquired some 3000 points of plastics and a few metals.
-I quit Warhammer 2 years ago due to a couple issues a) no one in my area played, after several years of fruitless searching.
-I got back into it at the beginning of this semester because a) I moved, and b) it gave me a creative outlet and c) because i found a great group to play with.
Also, I am not new to the Empire. I collected Empire when I played the first time. I have since began to recollect empire. My collection is slowly growing.
Before I got back into the Empire I began an Orcs list. It has some goblin light cavalry, but consists mostly of Orcs. I love it. I decided to come back to the Empire as a secondary force, mostly because writing compelling fluff for orcs is very difficult, i've tried...its just tough.
How and where do you play?
-I play at Wexford Hill Hobbies in Dayton, Ohio. Its got a games-day on Saturday devoted to Games-Workshop stuff. I currently have a grudge with the local Dwarf Player
as well as the extremely likable Skaven player.
Do you have other interests/hobbies?
I also play Flames of War (Germans and Americans)
-Great WWII Company Level game.
and Warmaster Ancients (late Romans)
-Fantastic "epic" scale warfare from the Classical Era.
as well as Sport of Kings (Spain)
-18th Century Warfare, Army level.
I also play Bass Guitar, study history and politics in my free time, and of course spend way too much time in the Law Library.
....and anything else you might like to share.......
I am a law student at the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio, USA. I'm in my first year, and I'm very tired
. I have a lot less free (i/e drinking) time than I used to, and have retreated into Warhammer and books for entertainment, except for the weekends or my girlfriend. Videogames have all but fallen to the wayside (
My philosophy with the Empire Army is going to be less one of "YEA! Lets kick some ass!"
and more one of buying far fewer models, but lovingly painting each one, and developing a story and narrative for the force as a whole. I'm going to name and historize each regiment in my army, and try to give the force some personality. No more grey-horde. This is, necessarily going to take a lot of time because i'm doing this in between Law Homework, but I think when I finish each unit it'll be worth a lot more to me, than my big blocks of grey troops.
Well thats all, its great to be here, i've learned alot already about making the most of my models, and hopefully I'll keep learning even more!
