It all began when I bought the classic 3rd Edition starter set full of Marines and Dark Eldar, back in the days
when the starter sets came with full-size rulebooks. I was shown a few colour schemes by a buddy with whom
I occasionally played Magic: The Gathering, and chose the black and red of the Blood Angels. Later, I would be
enticed by the sleek lines of the Eldar Falcon and play Alaitoc and then an Ulthwe Strike Force army. When the
Tau arrived, my lust for anime-style giant robots, big guns, and sleek, hovering war machines led me to begin
that army as well. I also dipped my toe in the Fantasy High Elf army and the Witch Hunters as well. It was at
this time that, in anticipation of moving to Ottawa, I joined the Deep Space forum under the name 'baglunch'.
But it was not to last. Eager to fund my education and lighten my load in preparation for the fateful journey
to Ottawa, I sold my Blood Angels, Eldar, and High Elves, and brought only my Tau and Witch Hunters with me.
I would stick with those two forces until I was hired at Games Workshop St. Laurent in the summer of 2007.
This, along with the generous employee discount, led me to rebuild the Blood Angels, and later begin a new
High Elf army, both forces rising like a phoenix from the ashes.
So here I am today: a married man, a university graduate, an aspiring lawyer, and a committed wargamer.
I have neither played a game nor painted a model for about a month now, but I hope to return to the battle
as soon as possible.
