I saw that we had a thread about MTG, the physical card game, so I thought I’d see if a thread about miniature gaming, the physical tabletop variety, would pull any interest. Feel free to discuss anything and everything related to whatever you happen to play.
I primarily play 40k (an Eldar Flying Circus atm) but that has more to do with the composition of my local gaming group that personal preference. I’ve also got armies for Hordes/Warmachine and Warhammer Fantasy that occasionally see some play time. Lately I’ve been kinda annoyed at the changes to the 40k meta-game. GW keeps bringing in armies that have a significant deepstrike component (drop pod marines and daemons being the biggest offenders) and it’s effectively removed distance as a player resource. If you don’t want to run deepstrikers you’re forced into using Orks or mechanized whatevers. It’s gotten a bit silly.
So ya, are you a tabletop gamer? Did you play in the before times when gaming was young and Squats were more than a story with which to bore younger gamers? Have you ever wanted to play? Were you put off by the price? Perhaps you bought some miniatures but couldn’t make it past the smell of rotten ham that seems to permeate most gaming stores. Whatever it is, post about it here!
