The Astronomican is a Warhammer Community that I purchased a few months ago after years of being everything from a member to an administrator. The former owner also runs a Wargaming store and the forums unfortunately took a back seat to his real world job that pays his real world bills (funny how that works). First and foremost the Astronomican is a Wargaming Community, with around 50 'active members' it is a very close knit community that lacks some of the 'anonymity' that comes on larger forums, generally everyone knows everyone.
We have several contests running at the moment one of which is converting, or just painting an existing model, for any character you want from any codex, 40k or Fantasy. Winner gets any infantry box set of their choice. LINKY We are also running a fiction contest where the winner will get their choice of any book from the Black Library, the theme is 'explosion'.

So there you have it, my shameless pitch for my web forum. Great people and a tight knit community that prides itself on being friendly, supportive and welcoming to new members. Trolls aren't tolerated and flame wars are pretty non-existent. Come by and visit sometime...
