So.. I’ve been looking again at games.. and not video games this time…
I’ve been looking at board games and table top games, since my son is getting to the age, where I think he’d like it.. And I found something called Warhammer.. Yeah.. I know you are all saying.. where the heck have you been?
Well I’ve not been in a game shop in A LONG TIME. I’m sure I’ve heard of it.. but didn’t really understand what it was…. but the minis had me transfixed..
So I went to “War Games” night at my game shop (tempest games) and watched a couple people play warhammer 40k. Yeah.. that was one of THE most confusing things that I’ve ever seen, however, the minis still intrigued me.. so I figured.. I’d meander around and watch some of the other miniature games going on.. this is where I found WarMachines..
Warmachines has everything I like about games.. Miniatures, Cards, and Books.. plus… DICE.. I love having a ton of dice.. So after watching several, and I do mean several, games of warmachine/hordes.. I think.. this is the one I’m going to do…. So what to do next?
Research of course, I downloaded the FAQ from PP and talked to some of the guys at the shop.. They are all really cool dudes who, as they play, explain what they are doing, and don’t seem overly annoyed doing so.
They told me, I have to come in sometime to play a demo.. They will pull out a couple armies and walk me though, albeit extremely slowly, a game.
So.. The major part of these games are.. well the miniatures.. so you need to have some sort of skill and artistic talent to do this hobby.. So I thought.. I’d buy a cheap character.. try to put it together and paint it to see if I have the chops..
Putting it together was ALOT easier than I thought, I have uploaded pictures to my G+ post on this.
Suffice it to say, when my birthday rolls around in a couple months.. warmachines is on the TOP of my list!!!
