New guy w/ a 40k itch ;)

Hello,
I'm new to your form and just wanted to say hi.
I use to play 40k about 17 yrs ago with a close friend. We would game about once a month for about 3-4 yrs. I also played Necromunda for a while. Been thinking about getting back into the hobby after my nephews showed interest in 40k. I'm putting together two armies for them as a X-mass gifts from my unfinished troops and extra sprues. After digging them out of storage I kinda been getting the 40k itch. I'm in my mid 40's and would like to find a group that doesn't take them selfs to seriously. It was always about having fun over a few beers and hero's/ pizza's and not about splitting hairs over dice rolls or uptight game rules. House rules were the norm and having fun was the goal.

I live and work within walking distance of the The Compleat Strategist and have shopped there back in the day. I'll probably resurrect an army over the next month or two just to get my feet wet again in painting mini's and them maybe start throwing the dice around again in after that.

Any thoughts would be great and or info on your group would be great.

All the best,
Thodin

Hey, welcome to the forum. 40k has been going strong since this edition hit, though you'll find a lot of variety in what is currently played. We regularly play on Thursdays, and the majority of folks come in after work. Afterwards a a good chunk of us head to a local bar. You should come down and introduce yourself.

Also, any 40k specific questions can be answered in the 40k section of the boards.

Hi Deuce,
That sounds good. I'll be putting together a few diffrent army options over the next few months. Once I get the core army built and painted I'll give you a heads up. Thanks for the reply!

Thodin.
