ain't nobody got cash for that.

Or live in countries where there are to few players stretched out too far across from eachother, and meeting up for a game is way too expensive and generally not worth it.

Although I'm very tempted to pick up the new repulsor tank(once the bleeping thing comes out) just to build and paint it.

I know a bunch of people who play, but the thing doesn't really seem logistically sound to me. You need to assemble a whole bunch of miniatures, then you need to paint them, and then you lug around a bloody suitcase of the stuff to cover a large table in them and roll dice for three hours.

But I do like the look of the things

Just to give this thread a bit of a bump. It's actually far more common than I thought, Age of Sigmar and 40k (and 30k) are pretty popular, whenever I go into the Warhammer store there's always people playing, great social activity imho. It's great fun.

Got a 3000 point Bretonnian army and just starting on my daughter's of Khaine.

I'm fond of the universe, but never got into the tabletop version. I like games with figures, and Warhammer ones always cought my eye, but I never had a knack for painting and imo the figures don't make much sense without it. You can order a painter to do it for you, but I don't think that's the point, is it? So I settled with board games which aren't related to it

In Poland it actuallly wasn't that hard to get into it, aside from the cost vs standard salary ratio ofc. In my youth there was a shop in which people gathered to play the thing, so there was no problem with access to it. I belive they even rented figures, but I was into MtG at that time. I later also discovered that one of my friends painted them as a hobby.

A few years back when I was in Warsaw, I was in Games Workshop official shop, so you can say things look pretty good here.

Regarding Age of Sigmar: it's universaly hated by the original WFB fanbase (actually not the game itself, but how they "killed off" the old fanatsy universe), but one cannot ignore the fact that it was a top notch marketing decision. They practically saved the franchise with it.

PS: I found that Total War: Warhammer games (or Dawn of War games back in their glory days) make for a great substitute for the tabletop game. A bit cheaper also.
