How did you get into Fantasy Gaming?
I am guessing that for most of you, it probably started with D&D?
I grew up in the UK, so my first experience of a Fantasy background was Warhammer Fantasy, or more precisely, Advanced Heroquest, which was pretty good, but probably in the end squeezed outta existence by D&D. Games Workshop focused on tabletop wargaming anyway and I ended up playing both Warhammer Fantasy (Skaven and Empire) and Warhammer 40K (Chaos Space Marines, Blood Angels and Imperial Guards) in my teenage years. I still keep an eye on the developments, but unfortunately I feel the minatures have become absurdly expensive and I don't particularly like the current development of the rules system (big tanks, bigger tanks! big monsters, bigger monsters!).
So any other major avenues into your current hobbies? Maybe Tolkien's Lord of the Rings?
