I'm new to 40k, so after all this covid stuff is over with i wouldn't mind finding some people to help me learn the game. I come from a fantasy background, so I at least have some experience in wargaming!
My real question though revolves around peoples' openess to playing with "proxy" models. I am into 3D printing as a hobby and I print my own warhammer minis - I know some people view this as a no no in the hobby, while others generally feel it's not a big deal.
What are your opinions?
(i still support local game stores btw - paints, primers, game supplies etc - i just don't support GW models prices)
Edit - and i guess my other concern, is if i show up to one of the local gaming stores am i going to get thrown out or harassed or something? I've heard some horror stories from other printers out there...

proxies are totally fine. I'm always encouraging people to support Nexus however they can (because they let us play there for free and have bills to pay after all), but that can mean paint and hobby supplies too if you do your own models.
I make themed non-gw armies from time to time as well
