I've been reading WH 40k for about, i don't know, five or more years now and am finally getting back into the table top. When I first played for a few months I got burned out when none of the local people would try and teach the game. They would just play my army for me basically. :/
I got back into it after watching way to many Lore Vids from OneMindSyndicate on youtube and I found a local GW store that is really into teaching newbies. I am looking forward to getting active again.
