I went with a friend to Games Workshop today since we’ve been interested in playing Warhammer. I never thought I’d get into something like this since the closest thing to a wargame I’ve played is chess.
The super awesome store employee walked us through a whole mini-tutorial of the game, and I have to say it seems pretty neat. Initially I was only interested in modeling and painting, but then I realized if I painted them I’ll eventually want to play too.
We also got to apply a base and weapon color to a Space Marine.
I still don’t know which army to go with. There are so many and I’m not sure what kind of strategy will work best for me. Maybe I can go long-distance with the Tau or all blarghghaghgh with Orks.
But ugh, it is going to cost so much money to build a decent army. If I’m serious about taking up this hobby then I’ll have to be even pickier about purchases than I already am. >.>
Does anyone reading play Warhammer or similar tabletop games? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
