Hello Tau Community, returning player here!

Post#1 » Nov 28 2016 11:09

Hello all.

I'm recently getting back into 40K after about a 6 or 7 year hiatus. There have been a few Edition changes (and a ton of Codex changes) since I last gamed, so I'm working on getting re-acclimated to the new rules.

I lost about half of my army when I moved to my current location (North Carolina), so I'm also working on rebuilding. Right now, I'm at roughly 1000 points of models, give or take.

I've been following the ATT boards for many years, and love the community even though I've only been a lurker up until now.

I'm hoping to be an active member, and I'm working on a battle rep write-up for my first re-entry game into 40k.

I look forward to learning and sharing with all of you.

Looks like I didn't properly read the requirements and post the template. Here goes:

Real first name:
-Chris

Age and gender:
-41, Male

Location:
-Raleigh, NC

Occupation:
-IT Project Manager

How did you get into wargaming?
-Friends in college introduced me

How did you get into Tau?
-Didn't want to play Space Marines and the models were very cool looking.

What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
-Join ATT and read the forums. There is a metric ton of great information here.

What is your Tau colour scheme?
-Urban Gray, black, and brown

How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
-I've been lurking for years, but finally decided to register.

What are the origins of your ATT username?
-I've used a variant of "One Ronin" for many decades.

Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
-Yes I have

Where and how often do you usually play?
-Just ran my first game under the new codex and 7th edition rules at a local hobby shop. I hope to run more there as they have fantastic terrain.

Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
-No, but I have considered getting into Imperial Guard, probably Elysians

What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
-Back when I last played, I loved to face Imp Guard and HATED Necrons. From what I've been reading, it's much the same now.

What is your best and worst 40K moment?
-Best: 3 man strong team of FW blowing up a Space Marine Dread with a lucky Pen
-Worst: Losing almost half my army to a single turn of Necron shooting and poor deployment.

What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
-My kids think the models are cool. My wife is supportive, though frowns on the cost.

Do you have any pets?
-I have a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog

Look forward to the report and whatever else you come up with on the forums! :)

Good to see more than a few lurkers getting stuck in! :D

Thanks all for the welcome!

I do have a quick question, though.

I've followed all of the instructions that I've been able to find and I've waited the 48+ hours, but I am still not able to post on any of the sub-forums beyond this one. Is there something I've missed?
