I'm Aodhan and I am coming back into a bit of Warhammer 40k after about a decade.
Currently painting up some Eldar and was asked by RobertTheDamned to post up a few pictures for other peoples consideration and general tips etc.
Yeah, we all loved 2nd Ed in Exeter.
The new rules seem very fast and concise but I feel something has been lost in translation over the years and now we are missing out on more idiosyncratic play-styles and units/load-outs.
I bought 2 edition when it started being reduced, and later enjoyed reading bits of Rogue Trader (didn't buy it originally, but have a weakens for hardbacks). I used to love the cultists chaos army in 2nd edition and adapted a few Necromunda figures, but then GW changed the army lists just to piss me off personally. Tried a little bit of 4th ed - but the rules ended up being requisitioned by an artist friend who was more dedicated to WH40K then I. I'm more of a role-player and collector, but somewhere in there, games like Warhammer Quest and memories of 40K help me to understand the other members. ;)
