PostSubject: hey all!   Tue 17 Feb 2009 - 7:32

Greetings everybody! I recently disvocered this forum and it seems like a good place, so why not register ^^.
MY name is Alcaeus, but since it seems people often can't spell it right you can call me Al or Alca is you like Smile or just call me by my real name, Tom.
A little bit about me? I'm 18 and I'm from Belgium. I've played warhammer for about 6 years. But, I recently noticed it seems i just can't ever finish an army i start building (i have a decent lizardmen force, a small bretoonia army, a small O&G army, a small Tau army and a lot of LotR models i never use but were quite fun to paint).
So, I've decided to go into Mordheim, so I can paint small forces and make each model more individual. I think it'll also allow me to have a taste of more different kinds of models.

Anyway, on to the important stuff Smile I was having doubts about which kind of warband i wanted. I had o choose between Pit Fighters (they just sound so awesome), Witch Hunters (i'm reading the warhammer book witch hunter right now, so yeah...) and a Norse warband (i've always had a weakness for marauders).
I decided to go with the norse, so hopefully i can start soon! (high school and all).

Oh, I also enjoy making scenery, I'll make my own topic soon Smile

Well, i'm done with ranting, nice to meet you guys ^^.

Hey Tom, welcome.. (sais the new guy),
I hope you choose Witch Hunters as your warband, because I'm bad at painting humans, but still really want to see some frenzied extremely religious lunatics running around and burning the wicked...thumbsup
but anyways, I'm looking forward to seeing your warband.

And the fluff aspect. Gw doesn't seem to care about it's own fluff anymore (just look at daemon armies, no more bloodlines/generations and such in the game,..) I really like the stories surrounding warhammer. Fantasy has become all about selling, so they just make very powerfull armylists so they can sell. I really don't like this powercreep. So switching to Mordheim seems good to me.

This has happened to most of us pal.

If you like massed fantasy battles, but are tired of WHFB, I can't stress enough the wonderful system Armies of Arcana.

Plays fast, it's fun, you can use all the minis you already have, and the rules are logical, magic helps but hardly will win a battle by itself, in the book you get more than 15 armies and 10 spell lists... well, better check the game. It made me enjoy massed fantasy battles again.

Anyhow, small skirmish games are equally fun and you can concentrate in getting a better job with each miniature.

Hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Best wishes.
