Hey people~

Am new to this forum, joined a couple of days ago and was already meeting some very friendly people. Admin Paxter mainly Wink thanks again for the warm welcome man. Well i guess ya'll can pretty much guess it, im new, love the space marines but have no idea where and how to start. Maybe purchasing my first codex, a friends advice Wink. An army however is something im still thinking hard on how to start. Recently discovered the hobby stores in my vicinity and couldnt be happier. Thanks to Wargamers Malaysia here. Hope anyone out there can advise. TQVM in advance ^_^ very sure am going to love the community here.

Hello and welcome, since you're pretty much looking at 40K, here's a basic summary what you'll have to do.

1. Go to shop/club, learn the basics from a game. (Don't get influence by the army you play or the outcome you get)
2. Look at the armies' background/looks/power.
3. See what you like to build and paint.
4. Choose your army.
5. Buy the Codex & Rulebook.
6. Create army list based on what you like to see on the table.
7. Buy the basic units you need for a small game.
8. Continue buying the rest according to your army list.
10. Gradually play larger games.
11. Continue expanding your army or choose another.

Happy gaming.

Thanks for the advice there, Jake. Well i've been watching many bat-reps and i like the way the space marines and blood angels play. However, i've had ambitions on starting an army of my own. Have made several emblem designs accompanied by descriptions and some stories along those lines on paper already. Would still adhere by space marine codex rules though. Ill be sure to make good use of your advice though TQVM. TQVM all for the warm welcome. This is a very cool community indeed. Hail wargamers Wink
