It was November, 2008 or 2009 (can't quite remember). I was visiting a couple of friends who just took the plunge into miniature wargaming, specifically Warhammer: 40K. The game featured the Tau taking on the Space Marines. If memory serves me correctly it was around a 500 point game. Being a geek that enjoyed boardgames like the old school Hero's Quest, D&D and Descent I thought the idea of using miniatures without a grid was genius!
Suffice to say a few weeks later I was able to get my hands on decent size Necron army and it started me into the wargaming hobby. I would go on to play and enjoy 40K for a few years before branching out into the gaming world.
Below are a few units from my Necron Army
here . He painted the Dwarf "Grabthroat Skinkicker" and the undead protector from our first Delves adventure.
Saddly Games Workshop would have yet another price hike and enough was enough. Since then the army has been sitting on my shelf collecting dust, rather then out on the battlefield collecting souls!
I may never part with these models as they were my inauguration into the gaming hobby.
What game/models got you into the hobby??
Cheers and thanks for reading,
