Am I too late for a New Year’s resolution?
For 2013 I’ve been telling myself I want to get back into Warhammer Fantasy and get in one game a month but I’m not sure where to even start?
Last serious game of Fantasy I had was in 2009 with my gobbos and many a game after that a few months later where I faced Burt’s Bretonnian knights and his Pegasus dudes trounced my whole army.
Actually I have gotten in a few plays of Island of Blood, and had a blast playing that, and I guess that fun is what I’d like to capture and experience. A small game with manageable units, a few special units thrown in, and some limited magic for some flavor. Sure the sides aren’t balanced, but do I really care?
I guess I’m looking for more of an experience, a tabletop story, over getting into another miniature arms race to be competitive and win like 40K.
There isn’t much of a Fantasy community at the BFS club, myself, this other dude, Burt, and Teddy, and getting anybody else to play IOB is like whipping out a copy of Dreadfleet.
I know what is killing 40K and at the same time what bring in new 40K players, but I wonder what drives players away from Fantasy and what brings them into the sytem?
