After the last local 40k tournament some concern has arisen over the seemingly small player base. I wanted to take a look at possible reasons for this.
I wanted to talk a little about a pet peeve I have in gaming. Scale, both table size and army size.
Let me preface this by saying, I know that you can play whatever game size you want. The purpose of this post is to talk about my experience in tabletop gaming and what I see as the norm.
GW is always the tabletop king in my area. My Tau haven’t seen the table in a long time. The last thing I played was Age of Sigmar. I fielded my L̶i̶z̶a̶r̶d̶m̶e̶n̶ Seraphon. I got rid of a small painted High Elf force and got my Skaven back from the painter. My Khaldoon overlords are done and on their way back from the painter.
Trying to keep track of what I have purchased so I don’t buy things twice I will list things below. I have spent around $250 so far.
I’ll be keeping:
Codex Astra Militarum
Dark Angles codex
Chaos Space Marines
Kill Team book
NOS set of firewarriors/breachers
I will trade/sell
Not sure what I will do with:
I also picked up the Marine and Legion 30k books.
I’ve always been fascinated by the staggering amount of tabletop wargames available. I’ve always been interested in “different” games and systems. I’ve never been able to find regular opponents.
I stopped in to my FLGS yesterday and inquired about what people have been playing. The small interest we had in Bolt Action, FOW and other Historicals has dried up.
