My name is Ann and I’ve been a gamer since the mid-1970’s when a friend turned me on to original Dungeons & Dragons and Chainmail. Since then I’ve played a lot of different games. My favorite for the past couple of years has been tabletop Warhammer 40K. I enjoy building and painting the figures as well as playing the game.
I’ve worked part time in a game store for awhile now and with the employee discount and burgeoning trust fund, I woke up one day and realized I could field a decent-sized force of every faction except space elves and sisters! Up to this point though I’ve mostly been an ork player and painter.
I like to sort of “roleplay” my forces a little in live games and someone suggested that I write up and post the battle reports online that I verbally tell while we are playing the game and rolling some dice. (I don’t do that with everyone — only the players who don’t find it annoying.)
I also enjoy other games and the occasional book. I’ll talk about them too from time to time. I’m really starting to like the looks of some of those Dark Eldar models and I wonder when they’ll start making Sisters in plastic? *wink*.
