There's Always a Beginning

Accidental Cultist


Greetings All,


As the title says, I am the Accidental Cultist, so a brief history before the real posting starts. Growing up I always saw the local Games Workshop and was interested in the models, but never got involved. I was always aware of the game, but not of the hobby or lore. In October 2015, I started playing the Warhammer 40,000 Conquest LCG by Fantasy Flight Games (amazing game and i still play even though its been discontinued). This started getting me really interested in the lore of 40k and started looking at models. I had also been looking for more of a hobby I can do to relax and take a break, so i figured i would give this a go a. I got a box of Tau Pathfinders, a couple paints and brushes and jumped right in, hook line and sinker.

I spent most of 2016 slowly building and painting those pathfinders, some Dark Angels and Necrons. I never played a game of 40K as the rules were to complex to just read and understand (I feel like you really need to sit down and start playing to get it), I also didn't want to have to commit to one army to get enough to field an army. I really enjoyed painting a variety of different models and styles (I still have a Harlequin Solitaire i need to finish as well). I was having a look through the FLGS and found a box of these amazing dinosaur models, when i dug a bit deeper I found they were part of Age of Sigmar and realised that I can play with much smaller armies, the games aren't to long and the rules are nice and simple. I got the core box and sold off the Stormcast half, got the Seraphon starter, an extra box of knights and a Stegadon. I now have two small armies with great models, and have already played two games (against fellow newbs).

This blog is primarily a way for me to post and track my painting, and keep me motivated to keep going. I will also post games here, not full on battle reports but more musings and learning. Any and all comments, feedback and suggestions are warmly encouraged.

Blood for the Skull throne? Is that how it goes?
