My name is Paul, I am a major nerd both in Work and Play. I am a network engineer by trade, building and designing large scale networks and I've done work doing everything from design and sales all the way up to troubleshooting and implementation.
I have been a 40K player for a couple of years, I own (4) Armies at the moment. My Little Brother is 12 and was wanting to get into Miniatures War Gaming, I was going to buy him the Orks he wanted, but I've finally had my fill of GW and their crap. I am in the process of slowly selling off bits and pieces of my collection, but I still want to get him into Miniatures.
Hence, my joining this community. We've settled on two different factions. He wants to play Legion of Everblight, and I myself am going for Circle Orboros. I am slightly disappointed to see all the Plastic coming out, as I've got a major soft spot for Metal Models, but I guess I will have to deal.
I have only bought one box of Models, which was Metal Warpwolves, as I really love the design. Other than this, I haven't purchased anything. I am seriously considering buying:
Legion of Everblight: Warpack BOX - Limited
Circle Orboros: Warpack BOX - Limited
Then of course the main rulebook and both army books.
Is there anything else that we need to really get started? I know that the Starter Set is coming, but I don't want plastic if I can help it...
Where would you go from here? I know that the Circle Forum has a great list of things you should be looking at buying, but I don't see that for Everblight. Do we just stick to what looks cool?
Let me know,
