PostSubject: Hey from Tokyo!   Wed 14 Jan 2009 - 7:09

Greetings all!

Actually, I feel like I know many of you already. I've been lurking on this forum for a year or so, silently observing all your frequent wisdom and occasional non-wisdom.

I decided to emerge from my lurkitude because I just downloaded the full Border Town Burning supplement, and I really felt the need to roundly thank and congratulate in a public forum those who put so much effort into putting it together. I'm looking forward to a cruel renaissance of chaos marauding and torching some thatched-roof cottages in the near future, thanks to you guys.

Anyway, I'm a long-time but casual GW player from the days of 1st ed. Blood Bowl & Space Hulk and also Necromunda back in the day, although I never really got into WHFB or 40K.

I moved here to Tokyo for grad school several years ago, and started playing Mordheim since the rules were free online and I could rebuild my collection of minis a few at a time. Now I have boxes of the little buggers. I've only got a couple of other keen Mordheim players here though, so we play less frequently than I'd like.

I've been known to play Reiklanders, Averlanders, Skaven, Undead, Dark Elves, and even Lizardmen. Mostly bare naked pewter and plastic, though, to my great shame. Our gaming group members are all good friends and pretty relaxed with the rules - if we find a cool model or scenario idea, we tend to run it just for kicks, regardless of balance. We play a couple of other miniature wargames too, but always come back to Mordheim.

Well, that's enough for today. I look forward to boring you all a little more in future!

Welcome, tomogui! cheers

It's cool to have someone from Tokyo posting. You said you moved there.. so are you actually from outside Japan?

Now that you have registered I hope you will start to paint some of your bare naked minis. Wink

And if you try some of the BTB rules (and if not as well) I hope you enjoy your games!

See you around!

You guys really are the rapid response team, huh?

Cianty: Yes, I'm Australian, although I've been here in Japan almost 7 years now, working as a translator and trying to finish off this damn grad thesis, off and on.

Duce: I will get uploading once I have some painted minis that I can be proud of! Promise.

Although actually, my ogre avatar is something I painted a while back. There you go. His name is Bori Bombosh, and he has recently become the terror of Mordheim (although well loved by all the village children back in Ostland).

Well, Tokyo's pretty sweet, but funnily enough it's cool s**t from the UK I seek every time I go into a GW store here...

but if you do ever come here, bring those twisted skaven along and we'll see how they travel!

That's very kind. You'll be glad to hear that a gaggle of Goblins are squabbling nastily for first place on my "to do" list.
