as i know that this board has a solid population of closet role playing enthusiasts i have to wonder if any of you have dabbled with the games workshop universe of tactical combat.




i played the original warhammer in high school with a drow army. now that i have more time on my hands i'm planning to invest in my modelling hobby again, but this time with warhammer 40k. i'm not sure what army i'm going to work on yet.

anybody else here (ever) play? anybody have any advice or old miniatures for sale?

I wanted to get in to that for a while, but i have no friends that would want to play and holy crap it's expensive...

yes, yes, card games are geeky too, good for you. i played quite a bit of jyhad in my day, then they changed the name because it was offensive.

otis, what 40k army did you have? i'm going to start collecting as soon as i can spare $100 for the starter kit and i have a couple of friends who still have their armies.

it's a good hobby.

It's all about D&D 3rd Edition!


I just started my first campaign as DM.....I was like a chicken with his head cut off...but I'm getting the hang of it.


I hate figuring out DC checks for shit I make up.....

i miss RPGs and tactical board games. high school for me was all about battletech and middle earth role playing.

You're all geeks.

And Rosey, you're a bigger geek. I thought this thread was about the Upcoming CPUs

I stopped playing all role playing games 3 years ago. I had VERY VERY extensive collections of rules- suplaments and modles for:
warhammer fantasy battle
warhammer 40k
space marine
titan legions
dungeons and dragons
AD&D2E
Heavy Gear
Battletech
Warhammer fantasy role play
Space Hulk
Legion Black
and
Twilight 2000

This was how me and my stepthing bonded. He spent all the money- I reaped the rewards. We build a massive 4 foot by 8 foot (standered gamming table) green war table in the bassment- we owned over 2,000 different models and had so much home made terrain it was rediculous.
Yes.
I am nerd.
Hear me roar.

When stepthing moved out- I sold most of everything after a few failed years of trying to get other people into it (they stuck with dungeons and dragons because you could steal barons money- and tie them naked to posts in the town square) and made a very nice sum of money off of 1/4 of it. Im still sitting on most of it- giving it to my nieghbor who sells them online or trades with them (after all- I have lost use for them).

RPG's are fun and I can totally see my self getting back into them when Im 70 and retired with my friends sitting around smoking blunts reminising about back in the day.

aside from actually playing the game, i just liked reading through all the books. flipping through d&d, robotech, shadowrun, and battletech manuals was better than reading comic books.

I'm trying to collect as much of West End Games' out of print Star Wars RPG modules as I can...that game was/is great!!!

Personal favourites also include Rifts, Robotech, TMNT, Cyberpunk, and Paranoia.

I still remember the day I bought my first 4-sided die...

Ahh Rosey, I figured you would have started this thread. I could have but I didn't have the balls.

I am a diehard gamer and currently play a lot of D&D 3rd Edition (which is SUCH a better game than old AD&D.) I don't play Warhammer but have been thinking about getting into Chainmail because like D&D 3e, the rule system has been modified and is quite good.

I use to play Magic steadity but now play only a few times a year. I still have a decent card collection and some killer decks though.

Who would be interested in a TBK D&D campaign?

I used to be waaaay into RPGs (I`m even a credited playtester on two products). But as I got older there just seemed to be less and less people who were also into gaming that I could see myself hanging out with. It's not a nerd / non-nerd issue.... it`s an age thing. There are not many people my age (29) who are still into gaming, but not in a red-eyed obsessively scary way. So... I ended up selling most of my collection on Ebay (BTW... if anyone has any older gaming stuff, check out the going prices on Ebay... I had some major collectors items and was clueless!) Still, I`m with d.code -- I can see getting back into it at some point down the line. Or with my kids maybe.....
