Ready to roll

Postby Bnasty » Mon Jan 15, 2018 5:00 pm

Hey guys,

My name's Brian. I guess you could say I'm new to playing.I played a small Salamanders army in 2000 very briefly but that's when the seed got planted. I got back into making and painting models this summer and picked up the Dark Imperim box set and the space Marines codex. I kept with the tradition of my old salamanders and have most of the primaris Marines done up and a few other units I picked up along the way.

I haven't played yet but would love to get started now that I have a little force (1500 points give or take) of units I put together mostly just stuff I thought was cool looking.

Like I said I haven't played yet but do have a basic grasp on how to play from lots of YouTube videos and battle reports. I've also listened to tons of podcasts that have given me a better feel for the game and have gotten me alot more into the lore/fluff of the game.

I've stopped by a few times and love what I see with everyone playing on Sundays. I wouldn't mind maybe getting a beginner/tutorial game going soon if that's a possibility.
Thanks,
Brian

Hey Brian. Welcome to the forums!. As a personal suggestion, if you are looking to start learning the game, I suggest very small scale games. I recommend 500 to 750 points so that you have a few units to have fun with, but not too many so that you are overwhelmed by the rules and mechanics. Other than that, welcome again and have fun purging xenos!
