Starter to Blogging

Not to sure how this all works but I will learn. So here I go

I am a geek, period. I love SCI-FI from all different genres. I have been a memeber of Starfleet International and the Klingon Assault Group (KAG) over the years. I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Babalon 5, and Firefly. And of couse I watch all the great SIFY channel shows like Warehouse 13. And even the occasional bad movies that they deam nessecary to make.

For the last 20 years I have been involved with the SCA (Society for Creative Anachrinism). A medieval re-enactment group that I find to be fun and allows me to learn about the time periods for knights and chivalry.

In the last few years I have become a fan of Warhammer 40K. I was introduced to it by my freind Rick when the "Battle at Black Reach" set came out. He and I bought a box each and traded out minitures. He took the Orks and I took the Space Marines.

I decided to go with a the Ultramarines. I have builts my army since then and I went from the one box set of 500 points to an army of 4000+.

I will post an actual list later of what I have aquired. I am not a great fighter but i am learning stratagies and tatics and getting better.

Unfortunately my work schedule keeps me from being able play the normal days that are run in my area but I am hoping that changes soon.

I have, in the last month, picked up the "Space Marine" game for my XBOX360 and I am learning more about how the character move. I just started playing the co-op mode and I must admit I am getting my #$@ handed to me. But having fun. I will take any advise on that as well.

I also read the "Ultramarine Omnibus" book and learned alot about how they react in battle. I am hoping to use all this in the near future as well.

I am looking forward to talking about my interests as well as taking any advise someone has for me.

Thank you for listening to my ongoing rambling.
