Hey guys, thanks to Olthannon, Prince of Spires and SpellArcher for saying hello.

Thanks for the link SpellArcher, I was not aware of this (The Old World)

Do GW realise how much money they would make if they just made the 8th edition stuff for all the armies still available?

I am not sure they do. They haven't made a penny from me since Uniforms and Heraldry and now I just buy 2nd hand or use blue thermoplastic and milliput. But it's not the same quality as when it is new.

I look forward to seeing pictures of your army. It sounds pretty epic. 42 SH must have been a challenge to paint (horses take me a loooooong time for some reason....).

Hehe... well they're not finished painting! But I fully agree with you. Those horses are a bit boring to paint. They are in my "staging" area right now :D

I will upload a picture of said staging area now. I think I can't attach on this topic.

I just saw the picture you posted in the painting and modeling forum and they indeed look epic.

You can also post pictures in this thread, in the same way as you did in the painting and modeling forum. But they probably are best as a separate topic. :) Thanks for sharing.

Hi everyone,

So ... after posting regurlarly in the "Painting and modelling" section of the forum for the past 2 and half months (already !!!) I think it's more than time to introduce myself :)

My name is Axel, I'm 30 years old and I'm from France.
I started collecting Warhammer with a friend when I was 10 or so. He had Dark elves and I had (obvisouly) the High elves. It lasted for 3~4 years I'd say and I was lucky enough to have parents that supported that passion. I accumulated some nice models, I painted some but I never really played a game.
So it has been something like 15 years without any Warhammer in my life until I found it back, last July. So I get them all out and here what I had :

I started thinking of what I wanted to do with it. It was so important to me when I was young that I couldn't just sell them. So I decided to give it another try. The plan was to (re)paint all of them, maybe try a game and see how it goes. So I did a lot of research online (things I couldn't really do when I started the first time), I learned a lot, bought some paint and what follows is in the "Painting and modelling" section :)
The plan drifted a bit when I started thinking about expending the army although I havent even finished to paint my first whole unit ... I thought about 3D printing, making some molds, proxies and finally buying some. And here I am, hundreds of euros lighter and with an army that (at least) doubled up in size and point. I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty happy with all my purchases but i know I went a bit too far ^^ Anyway, I think my buying madness stopped with my last purchase when the seller tried to swindle me.

Long story short : I'm back in the hobby and I'm really glad to have found you !

Welcome again :)

The collection of old models look great. Some of the characters are lovely, and I really like the swordmasters and white lions.

It's a common collectors problem. Somehow there's always a next model which you just have to get. And it takes a lot longer to paint models than it does to buy them ;) At some point I had 3 or 4 times the number of models in a box as I had painted. I had to force myself for a few years not to buy any models and just paint what I have. With patience I managed to get to a spot where I now have a good collection painted and the number of unpainted models is manageable.

I look forward to seeing your progress here. And I'm very curious to see what you do with 3D printing. It's a technique which has announced itself a few years ago already, but it's not mainstream yet and I'm curious how well it would work for creating miniature models (and how it would work out cost wise). Keep us updated.

Rod
