    Miniature war gaming is one of my hobbies, warmachine and malifaux are what i am playing now. I spent this weekend at a convention in PA and noticed quite a few people with man-bags and knives clipped to their pockets. So i'm curious who else on the boards is into being a tabletop general?

    used to be for a couple of years when I was about 12-14years old (so about 3 years ago now). warhammer 40000 was my chosen system.
    I stopped due to the expense (£15 for a basic squad of 10 plastic footsoldiers, anything up to £40 for plastic vehicles, more for the fancy resin or metal models), and the fact I was enjoying the painting and modeling more than the gaming itself. I went back to making Airfix models, which are just as enjoyable (for me) and somewhat cheaper.

    plus warhammer had, for me, an aura of extreme nerdisty around it, although I strongly suspect this has more to do with my friends who also played (to the point of obsession, and in one case I'm fairly sure he forgot it was a game) rather than an honest representation of the majority of people who play.

    I never really got into it, but do have a few models of Uruk-hai from the Warhammer LOTR series maybe 4 or 5 years ago. It's pretty cool, but like phaser said, is expensive as heck for what you get.

    I don't play miniatures, but I love playing traditional hex-and-counter wargames. Mainly 20th century warfare, tactical through grand strategic.
