Rank: Former Cpl United States Marine Corps. (Once and Always)
Serial Number: #1
As this is my first post I will follow instructions and explain my name of "Spaguatyrine"
Space Marines=Space Wolves
These are the 4 armies I play. Putting all of them together I get:
Spa + Gua + tyr +ine
I remember seeing warhammer 40K when I was in high school but was too poor to play the game. Many years later a new friend told me about a war game he plays where he plays with Men's barbies. Long story short I went to his house and fell in love with Warhammer Fantasy. After playing for 6 months and with the opening of the west side Games2 Die 4, I switched over to 40K and have been hooked since. I have been playing for almost 3 years.
My first game was against Scott Kennedy from Games2 Die 4. I am incredibly competitive and to say it calmly I got crushed; curb stomped, destroyed. I got beat so bad with my Dark Angel Terminators against his Chaos Space Marines, I asked to play him again and got crushed again. As with all of my failures in my life, I went back to the drawing board. Scott beat me soundly for 2 months before I was able to adapt to the best player on the west side and finally almost beat him. The day I beat Scott was the day that I was hooked on 40K forever. THANKS SCOTT!!
That being said:
What I feel I can bring to the Back40K:
*In depth thoughts on Strategy involving armies with Close Combat Abilities.
*Space Wolves strategy and list building.
*Daemonhunter/Grey Knights Strategies and list building.
*Ongoing local tournament information from Games 2 Die 4 and other local game stores.
I again humbly appreciate the opportunity to write on the Back40K. It is an honor and privileged I will not take lightly.
