    Greetings and Well Met … Brothers!

    I have enjoyed the Warhammer 40K universe for a long, long time. I actually have a first edition Warhammer 40k Rogue Trader ruleset that I bought back when it came out (1987). Can anybody top that? Since I am that ancient I am nicknaming myself the "GrandDaddy 40ker" .

    I started playing table top miniatures with Warhammer 40k epics (which I believe are no longer produced) and the normal table top miniatures. I have since gravitated to whole host of 40K computer games. I am excited to join the Eternal Crusade and I have purchased a Founder's Pack and started killing and being killed in closed Alpha.

    If you want to find me just look for "Ritus" who is a Tactical Ultra Marine and know that if you have been purged in the Emperor's name it was by a GrandDaddy at 40k. You better work on your skills and get better or suffer the humiliation! "If" or should I say "when" you get me down then know you have shot, stabbed or bashed a GrandDaddy at 40k so take those 5 seconds to bask in your infamy and go buy yourself a bigger weapon for next time we meet ...

  2. Welcome to the fray, Brother!

    Immerse yourself, and enjoy! There are many things to come :)

    And maybe the years may dull the senses against the forces of Chaos ;)

    Greetings venerable brother Ritus. Though I am not as ancient as you I got into the hobby roughly at the same time.

    and I'm probably in the same generation mate (47 this year)

    Greeting Brothers .... Thank you for the retorts.

    Siegebreaker - We were just in a couple of battle together once as Brothers and then you went HERETIC you box climber!

    FoggySWE - you might qualify for "GrandDaddy" status. Same for you Tarl68, and it is good to know that Battle Brothers exist who know the true tome of conflict. I will be watching for all in the future.

    Glad to see that I'm not the only old man in the bunch! 48 years young and I remember Rogue Trader 1st Ed., too!

    Well I'm not as old as you gents, but I'm close.

    I started with Rogue Trader as well, circa 1991/2 while I was working at a comic store in high school. I had been painting minis for a couple of years before I found out there was a game to go with! Slannesh was my first love, but several armies (and many years) later I'm full-on Eldar.

    Antioch you are qualifying for GrandDaddy status <Salute> ... Elorrah the heretical xenos side of me started playing Eldar in the early days I still like them ... probably will be my solo alt player (Striking Scorpion - maybe) ... but my main is gonna be with the ULTRA MARINES the Empires finest!
