he's talking about table top games.


I've never got into table top games, because that's just toooo fucking hard core for me. Don't know if anybody here would play. Maybe siegler but i'm not sure. I admire the table top players in the dedication they put into painting their avatars. Seems like a fun hobby.


For those steal clue less here are some pics:

The mall near my old house used to have a Warhammer store. The pieces can be cool looking, but to actually play the game and paint the characters and all that shit is way too time consuming/nerdy for me

yea the pictures i posted are of warhammer. I still think it's pretty cool and admire the art of them painting their avatars, you see some really dope schemes come out. The really hardcore ones use laser pointers to determine line of site and everything. It's an expensive hobbie some of those figurines can go for hundreds of dollars.

I played warhammer for a good year before hatred for the community made me quit. Then, I picked up Warmachine and it is very different, it is much less expensive to get into with higher quality modeling. The community is generally older than 12 and thus, mostly more mature. I paint mostly with a 10/0 sable brush and a magnifying glass so you can imagine the detail required for this shit, and I am considered a complete novice.

Here are some photos of my faction in warmachine:

Basically the gist of the game is that you have a certain amount of points to spend to build your army with. You must have one character that leads your forces which is called a warcaster (a sort of super soldier combined with magical powers). You then have what are called warjacks which are the huge robotic looking things that are mentally controlled by the warcasters. Finally, you have warrior models which are your infantry/cavalry units to round out your army. The game has a fairly rich history and storyline behind it which occupies roughly 50% of my interest in the game.

It does not cost much $ to get into, about 35$ for a starter set (usually 3-4 models made up of a warcaster and several warjacks) and a painting set is around 14$. That is all you need for smaller point games.
