… into the realm of miniature wargaming

"Well, Bleeped text My husband won. He finally did it. He got me into the insane world of Warhammer. Like, really into it. Like, picked out and purchased an entire 2,000-point Age of Sigmar army. Idoneth Deepkin, in case you were wondering. Spent many frustrating hours putting said army together and am now in the process of painting it. As a newbie, I'm obviously doing a pretty mediocre job, and it will likely take me roughly 84 years to complete it. But I'm doing it. And I'm liking it. Even crazier? I think I like playing the game itself…."

purchased an entire 2,000-point Age of Sigmar army

I really wonder if this phenomenon is GW's main line of profit. Buy a pile of sprues, build a pile of shame, burn out on painting.

I would say: design your army, buy something from it for Warcry, feel the gratification of playing with something and keep going while playing progressively larger games. Join an escalation league!

It's nice to see anytime the Smarter Gender gets involved in the hobby.

The only shot I have of getting my wife involved is if I paint her up a 30k Slaanesh army.

The boyz are back in town, making some noyze….toot…toot…scree…scree. Nothing beats a relaxing melody that makes the opponents head explode.

Also, you crafty fiend you have the cowbells of annihilation in reserve. wink
