...So, where do I start?
Honestly, there's not a lot positively I can say about myself. The most I can say is that I'm 27 years of age as of posting, and I live around the Nottinghamshire area. Beyond that, it's a long string of mistakes that still haunt me, issues with living and the fact that I am generally the least successful person I know.
But you guys don't want to hear about that, so I guess we have Age of Sigmar to talk about.
First and foremost - Age of Sigmar is a game I've only played two games of since it launched, and both games using the Starter Set, which was borrowed from the LGS for a couple of Demo Games. I like the game well enough, I've just had issues getting a force done.
Take my most recent attempt. My LGS decided to run a Path to Glory Campaign. I wanted in - finally, people to play with! Initially, I wanted to go with Skaven, however I ran into the same old problems I've had with the range - that being the models either being ludicrously complex to put together (Doomwheel), Poor Value (Stormfiends), still in Metal and/or Failcast (throw a dart at the range and odds are you'll land on something) or some combination of the above. So instead with Legions of Nagash happening, I decided to shoot for that. After picking out a reasonably balanced force, the project hit every problem on the way down the tree. Models went missing. Issues deciding on a Paint Scheme. Unclear instruction books. I asked a friend if he could help pitch in some help, and these problems continued. It got to the point where the Campaign started, and I had nothing to show for it. The only reason I haven't thrown the entire thing under a bus is because that might be disrespectful to said friend's efforts to help out.
And it's been like that for a lot of projects. Which is one reason I've not been able to do much with the game. I keep up to date on as much lore as I possibly can, and I use that to help create things. However, it keeps hitting every problem branch on the way down from the tree.
While we're here, there's a couple of caveats I should probably mention.
First, I do suffer from Aspergers Syndrome, a subset of Autism. I don't bring this up to insult anyone or ask for special treatment - that would be wrong. However, I bring it up to warn others that some of my interactions may be...more difficult than with others, especially since we're not having a face to face conversation, if that makes any sense.
Second and perhaps more keenly, since I'm not sure how zealous the people here can be - I complain. A lot. Whether it's a perceived overabundance of Stormcasts to prices (oh god the prices), I tend to complain a fair bit. That said, I'd like it to be on record that my complaining comes because I like Games Workshop and want to see it - and it's products, Age of Sigmar included - do well.
Anyway, that's probably it for now. Feel free to ask me anything below and I'll reply as best I can.
...I'm not very good at introductions.
