@RisingTide: I know you asked for Dave's advice, but your trouble got me thinking. If I were you, if this is definitely something you want to do, I would talk to mom about perhaps getting a paper route so that you can earn your own money and you aren't taking any money from your parents' pocket that would normally go toward bills. The other option, if you're just wanting to get into painting minis, I suggest that you might want to check out Reaper minis...they are MUCH cheaper than 40k and as such might be an easier thing to sell your mom on! hope this helps, man. Looking forward to having you in the hobby whichever way you go!

@SpahesMareen: Oil based paints are okay but they don't last as long as the water based paints, plus they are slightly toxic. Hope this helps.

My mom just said that i can't buy any space marines. I talked to her about it but she says it's too much money and we don't have enough space. What should I do?

I'm 12 years old and live in colorado

This is a great video providing a lot of information that's usually not covered in other introduction videos. Everyone looking to get into Warhammer 40k should watch this video before watching the Intro series and history videos. Thanks for the great video and information.

you cant use a meganob as a HQ cuz that is the model that i did buy first but i dident know what HQ i should get first but meganobs are just fun to paint

Yo! I first watched this on youtube and was inspired to further my knowledge on how to play 40k. I originally started to play to understand how to build terrain better suiting for exciting battles. Now, I'm out to dominate with a nids swarm! Thanks Dave!

Nice video Dave. Its interesting that one of my friends just started and was asking me these questions only a few days ago, I suppose I should get to sending this to him.

thanks dave,now i know know what first miniatures to field when playing 40k after getting the terrain ready(im the only one who plays in my country,they prefer the CoMpUtEr games,and theyre wrong)PS:my first terrain will be a willderness outpost,not the one from the rule book,a bigger outpost with more trees,and a made up rule for exploding barrels,one barrel,small blast,three barrels,BIG BLAST,flames on barrel,flames going in what ever direction using the scatter die,i lost mine,i can use regiular d6 to fix that,just paint up arows,an d leave some places without arows,just with puny arrows.
