    By aged 16 i had a 40 figure skaven army, 60 undead, about 40 empire, 100 or so gobos/orcs, various trolls/dragons/ogres, quite a few rulers & tape measures, and lots of fake grass !

    at the same time got on to the new warhammer fantasy role play, played for nearly 2 years, but alas ladies and booze took over :/

    pity they didnt keep the magic system in some way :/

    You mean Mordheim? I played that a bit. Also got a dwarf army for fantasy battles which I played quite a lot. Haven't played it in ages though.

    Raven Brrrrr!

    Used to buy the odd figure (mostly 40k stuff) when I was a kid, just to paint them really. Only ever tried the table top game once and wasn't really impressed.

    Played loads of Warhammer. On the old Warhammer Fantasy system, me and 2 of my friends had ALL army books split between us and I've read most of them for lore.
    Played Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40k, Bloodbowl, Epic and Mordheim out of the games made by GW, love their games :D

    I always loved playing against undead teams with my orc squad. Tho it usually were tough matches.

    Golden times TBH...

    Played the original tabletop game (still have a first edition rule box somewhere!), most of the later versions, the original RPG and the Hogshead reprint and even some of the newest released version - some excellent background and lore stuff in some of the new supplements!

    And almost forgot - loads of the paperback novels...

    Almost ;) I think you have a hybrid of "Middenheim : City of Chaos" and fourth in the "Enemy Within" series of modules, "Something Rotten in Kislev".

    Something rotten in Kislev!

    The whole Enemy within campaign was great, I enjoyed Death on the Reik and Shadows over Bogenhafen - played the lot with my group before we ended up playing PC games n Poker :p

    I thought the best thing about that game was the careers system - ratcatcher - trappings - ratters pole with d6 dead rats, sling and ammo, small and vicious dog -lol!

    Or the student career with a small percentage chance of acually learning some academic skills and a far larger chance of becoming an alcoholic - it wasnt a system that took itself too seriously :)

    <strokes first edition hardback copy> :)

    Played Warhammer the Tabletop game about .....11ish years ago i think it was, for a few years, had an undead army (back when mummies had 4 wounds and Toughness 5 :p) and really loved it, both the painting and the actual playing!

    good fun, great memories!

    I used to collect the figures when I was a kid, but I just used to paint them. I didn't like the game really, and I only ever played it once. I used to win competitions at local GW for painting! Was a pretty good hobby at the time but I just grew out of it.

    While I did have a sort lived fling with Chaos Dwarves, I'm more of a 40k player, Space wolves since RT days with a touch of Epic.

    Ah the smells of acrylic paint, pva glue and flocking, the smells of adolescence I tells ya!

    The roleplaying game was brilliant with the careers system, absolutely loved it.

    yeah I was more of a 40k player. Imperial guard FTW!! Just pilin more and more men at ur enemy can never go wrong. Who cares if they have shit stats, u roll enough dice ur bound to win. A lot like Kroot in close combat, u can get upwards of 40 odd attacks with one squad if you charge and bought bladed weapons :D But back to imperial guards u can't go wrong with Leman Russ's and Basilisks(the im going to stay at the back of the map and just pound u into oblivion method!!)

    Old School here, I played WHFB since the first release? certainly by the second and sometime before ravening hordes - the first ever army lists book - came out way back more than 20 years ago.

    I had a mixed army and used to cast my own figures until the skaven came out. Then it was the horned rat all the way. I have a fully painted 5000 point skaven army - all metal none of that plasticky stuff and as a mixed horde none of that fotm shooty stuff.

    I used to work next to the GW guy who invented the skaven :)

    I also did WHFR since its first release but havent done that in ages

    Yes, Space Hulk was great.

    Personally, I remember starting off playing 'Hero Quest' when I was about 6!

    Heh, yes I remember Imperial Guard.

    My first 40k army was Orc and I remember my older brother had Imperial Guard.

    Used to remember so amusing fights between Ghazghkull Thraka and Commissar Yarrik.
