Necromunda Wargamer

So far I've talked about my past with Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000. Now I get to talk about my favorite game, why I hate it and what I'm going to do about it.
Again, this is a game I picked up when I started getting into everything. By this point I was a bit older and the game store moved down the street to a bigger location. Here they had about 16 feet of wall space devoted to Games Workshop items and much more play area.

The Meeting- BattleTech

The captain sat Wilhelm down at the table. A simple table with a single lamp. Two chairs, one for Wilhelm, one for the Captain. A notepad sat in front of the captain. The room was bare. Likely built for the purpose of interrogation or debriefing. Fortunately for Wilhelm he wasn't being interrogated.

Fantasy Wargamer

Previously I gave an overview of my past in Warhammer 40,000. I'm about to join an escalation league, but this is for Warhammer Fantasy. I have a bit of a history here, but not nearly as much.

Escalation High Elves

Just a quick update on my High Elves. I managed to finish off my Reavers, but my brush is shot, so I had to stop painting. Hopefully tomorrow I can at least base coat my Sea Guard and get started on them. I have about 20 of them to do in short order.

Been painting up a storm, as much as I can. I have my Archmage done and a bolt thrower with crew done for fantasy. Right now I'm finishing up my Ellyrian Reavers. I also did up a few of my second edition Necrons to play in a Kill Team, which will eventually be made into a 550 point army.
The High Elves are going to end in a 750 point army for the start of an escalation league. The first deadline for that is Jan 31st. So I have about 23 more models to paint (another Bolt Thrower + crew and 2 units of Sea Guard). My goal however is to get the Bolt Thrower and crew done tomorrow and the Sea Guard well on it's way by Thursday. So this is a quick WIP update.

High Elf Archmage

Working on my High Elf army for an Escalation League. Here's the results.

I have a good amount left to go. About 26 more models. This one took me about 4 hours alone. Lots to work on.
Here's my next up, an old Bolt Thrower I'm converting into a not to old Bolt Thrower. Still looking for the crew. Used to be Dark Elf, now it will be High Elf.

A New Wargamer

I'm not really new to wargaming. I've been out of it for at least 14 years however. I started in middle school when I was at the local comic/game shop (which sadly no longer exists). My mother would drop me off when she went shopping. Normally this annoys shop owners, but I was nice and always bought something, so they didn't mind.

Still getting all our gear together and figuring things out to play some 40k. Right now I'm trying to pick an army to start with. Something basic like Space Marines or maybe something super fancy like Eldar Corsairs.
