|This is Kent: Beautful! ... but rural|
I was fortunate enough during one of my first parties with my new colleagues to discover that one of my peers was actually a "beer and pretzels" gamer. Turns out he really enjoyed board games. We did the whole "What kind of geek are you" dance, careful not to reveal the full extent of our nerdiness. I decided to go for it. "I play miniatures games, like Warhammer 40k," I excitedly uttered.
He had no idea what I was talking about.
|Awesome fun card game!|
Fortunately, I have my own Warmachine table now! Sure enough, the next time he came over, he wondered if we could play a game. I was more than happy to oblige! Over the last couple of weeks we've played small games, usually battlebox-sized. I discovered that, although I had only ever purchased one battlebox (when PP had that great deal over the summer), I actually had the models for a couple of the battleboxes. He has been playing with the Cygnar box, which consists of:
I feel bad that he hasn't had much luck, but I think that this time I will try handing the reigns over to him, and I will try my hand with Stryker. Maybe that will get him a little more excited about the game. I also feel bad because the only factions I have are ones which I enjoy playing. I emphasized last time that there are over 100 different casters in the game, so there is bound to be someone out there who better fits your own playstyle. It would be really great to have someone on-campus who plays Warmachine as much as I do, and I don't want to discourage him when I only have so many casters.
I have since decided to purchase the Two-Player Battle Box. This way, I will have a greater variety of models to present, as well as some different playstyles. Plus, it's a pretty awesome deal! I don't have any qualms about ordering products online anymore because I don't really have a LGS that I regularly visit, so I was able to pick it up for $75. $75!!! That's barely a little more than a brand new video game! The Menoth forces are: Kreoss, Vanquisher, Crusader, Repenter, Cinerators (full) and the Khador forces get: Sorscha, Juggernaut, Destroyer, Wan-o-war Shocktroopers (full). Pretty sweet! Can't wait for it to come in!
