PostSubject: Hello   Fri 19 Sep 2008 - 17:34

So, here I am. Just joined up after finding a link to here from the Specialist Games forum which lead me to that beautiful German table that made me want to cry...

Anyway, I decided to join up and start posting after a week or two of lurking simply because you all seem so damn friendly. I tend to stay away from the Specialist Games forums because a few people there rub me up the wrong way but I seriously doubt that'll be a problem here.

I've recently got back into Mordheim as my baby boy has just been born and I needed something to occupy myself with during the brief moments between nappy changes and winding duties.

Building some terrain and rebuilding my Skaven warband seemed like a good idea, especially as my other son (10 years old now) wants to start playing.

I'll post up some pics of my terrain and warband in the appropriate areas but for now; here's a pic of the Conrad with his mummy:

You are not alone, my friend. And I do mean this from an objective point of view. Lots of people stay away from that board, which is a real shame because the Mordheim community is actually great, huge and alive, unfortunately though scattered across the world (wide web).

Whatever. I'm glad you joined the forum and I do hope to see some pics of your minis & scenery soon. And maybe a battle report or two with your other son... Wink

Welcome! cheers

hey and welcome Smile

also congradulations on the baby boy, give ihm a year then teach him the movement / shooting rules, then your set to mould him into a mordheimer Razz

The plot thickens...

Thanks for all the kind words and warm welcome guys, I knew there was a reason I joined up.

I've just posted some WIP buildings in the terrain thread. I'm getting Jordan (my first son) together with my best mate's kid for a couple of games tomorrow so I may write up some AAR's at some point.

I'll also post some WIP pics of my Skaven at some point although I've been diagnosed as photographically retarded and I'm wary of sharing any of the pics I've taken so far as they really don't do the paint jobs justice.

Please overlook my off topic ignoranceÖ

Iím taking a statement you, KingSkin, made off another topic, "a couple weeks of paternity leave". Does the UK give this routinely to fathers or is it just the particular institution you are employed by???

Back on topic, a wonderful start to a family you have, hold them close and hold them dear...

Cheers dude. It's a standard thing over here. You get two weeks off but at £120/week pay (about $240 or 150 Euros). This is paid by the government and is going to leave me broke for the month but I wouldn't have missed it for a moment. Those two weeks gave me a chance to get his little hands used to holding dice...
