Hello World - New to EVERYTHING!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Glad to have discovered this place. Looks awesome here :)

I only started painting a few months ago and discovered that I really enjoy it! I don't play (yet) and honestly have no clue what happens once a model leaves my hands and finds its way onto the board. Maybe one day I'll have time to learn how to play too! For right now, I paint models for the fun of it, for myself and people who play, but don't feel like painting.

I enjoy basing, too. I love trying out different techniques and ingredients just to see how they might look / work. My two most recent successful 'adventures' have been with Sculpey and my hot melt glue gun.  It's really amazing what you can make with a little bit of patience.

Looking forward to learning and much more experimentation. Might even be brave enough to start a painting log. :P

Hey hey audre!,

Welcome to the party!

Hopefully you can get a few games in sometime soon and see if you like that portion of the hobby.  Maybe get those fellows you're painting for to give you a run through!

Do indeed set up a painting log, I'll keep an eye out for it.

Goodluck in the Mortal Realms!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome Goodwin!

You gave me the nudge to get off my ass and actually follow through with that WIP thread start, thanks!

Awesome! so Tzeentchy! 

I also got into the hobby as a means to do some art. For the longest time I was spending all my time doing complex conversions because I was afraid of painting. You are already doing great painting and advanced basing techniques right from the start! I bought some sculpy and I still have never used it... 

The game is great its just 4 pages of rules and the free app and you can try it out. The new pitched battles would require you to paint a ton of pink horrors to be able to play tzeentch stuff, but open play lets you put anything you want on the table and just see what happens.

WoolyMammoth - thanks for the welcome!

SCULPEY IS GREAT!! I have made bases with it, rib cages, battle carnage, and most recently, a bunch of skulls for my Mortarch base (WIP). It is the least expensive way (I think?) to add hand sculpted, custom pieces into the mix.

I want to work on making molds, too, of useful bits (like skulls) which are soooooooooooo expensive to buy. I spent a few HUNDRED dollars at this year's ORIGINS game fare just on miscellaneous bits for my projects.... and I don't even play the damn models myself LOL.

And thanks for the suggestion of trying out open play. Might just give that a go after I get a few more things thrown together.

Hello Shane :) Thanks for the welcome.  

I was introduced in a roundabout way for sure. I'm mostly a Magic Card player and stop by my local shop to have a game or two of Commander with friends. As it happens, this shop (Flatland Games, Wixom, Michigan http://flatlandgamestore.com) has a huge number of mini-gamers with lots of Warhammer, Dropzone Commander and Malifaux die-hards. Of course, I can't just walk by these awesome models without wanting to have some of my own! Since I like fantasy, the AoS stuff has really been fun for me to explore. Also, my local Warhammer shop (in Ann Arbor, Michigan) has an amazing guy who runs the shop - Ian is one of the nicest people I've ever met! His enthusiasm is really very contagious.

Hello Levianthus! Thanks, too for the welcome and kind words.

I do like those Chaos models LOL. I recently got myself the Silver Tower Quest Box so I could get my hands on all those models (!) Not sure if I'll play but it will sure make it easier to give ti a shot.

welcome aboard, Audre!

really stellar Tzeentch chariot in your other thread.

Was going to suggest that the Silvertower boxed game is a great starting point to get a bit of gaming under your feet.  Not to mention the completely amazing models that come in that box of goodness...But you are already aware of that :)  Like you, I was mainly just a life-long hobbyist before getting the gaming itch and diving in.  Enjoy!
