I started getting into 40K when Other-Husband got Space Marines for PS3 a year or so ago. It's (so far) the only PS3 game I have gotten into playing. I absolutely love this one, and go back to playing it anytime I'm in the mood to cause death and destruction.
I realized it was connected to the Warhammer universe, and slowly started poking around into it online. Got into reading the Warhammer Wiki and some other online stuff. I finally found a few of the books at the library, and started reading 13th Legion (book 1 of the Last Chancers set) by Gav Thorpe yesterday. I like it more than I thought I would, given that it's a "guy" book about soldiers and war and blood and gore.
I've never had much interest in tabletop games, despite having dated at least a dozen people that played, but Warhammer 40K really grabbed my attention in a way that D&D, the Star Wars games, and Vampire: The Masquerade never did. It figures I'd pick one of the most expensive ones out there to get into! (Champagne taste on a beer budget, that's me!)
I guess I'm just wondering if there's anyone out here in GT-land that I can geek out with. So... anyone? Any 40K enthusiasts/players/readers out there?
