Not sure how much more than 'hai guys!' to put here, so here goes.

Stumbled upon this site while looking for "40k skirmish rules". Ironic, I know. My first taste of 40k was coming up on 20 years ago with a 3rd edition intro box. Not having anyone to play against (go go rural Wyoming) and not being artistically bent, it sat on my shelf. Last spring after binging on the Dawn of War games I dug out the old box to show my son. Next thing I know I've built myself a little paint station, developed opinions on paint, and have boxes full of unpainted plastic.

I still haven't properly played 40k (still rural Wyoming), but I'm really enjoying modeling and painting. I'm by no means skilled, but it's cathartic. I take pretty decent light box shots of my poorly painted miniatures.

Other collateral info... I'm a geek (PC games, anime, RPGs, etc) married to a geek (manga, K/J-drama) raising a pair of geeks (undecided). I'm a probation officer for adolescents and young adults, primarily substance abuse related.

Not sure what other info to drop here, ask away, I'm an open book.

Welcome! If you enjoy modelling and painting I think you will find that DS has lots of nice possibilities. Post up some of your work. We would love to see it!

I think you will enjoy our little project! You will be able to finish a Squad (20 models at the most, usually ~15) so you would get a nice sense of completion. :DS encourages story-telling, based on each mission... so you can get your geek-writer hat out! Just Kidding

Please post pics of your models! We LOVE pics... and there are some AMAZING hobbyists around, so if you want pointers, they would help you. Mostly we are nice cheerleaders! HA!

What Squads interest you? Let us know if you need anything!

PS: Hmmm... I thought "s4dfish" would sound "sss-four-fish".

Since I ask "What do you think?" to all Staff, I have included it here to save time.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I've thrown up a few pics in what I think is the appropriate section. As far as preferred faction, I'm a Tau fan for mostly aesthetic reasons. Of the factions you have implemented, I'll probably try to play around with IG or Kroot.
