I sat next to a cool fella named Will. He displayed the kind of enthusiasm that I was used to seeing from years of recruiting new hobbyists. He had acquired a Black Reach set and alot of other Space Marine stuff and was happily chatting with me about his paint scheme and his plans for his force. I was super excited to be starting in that way.
I was also surprised by the amount of gamers in the shop playing Warhammer. I went in at a quarter-to-five and found three tables of fantasy and one table of 40k. It was awesome. I was impressed, especially considering that this shop is frequented by soldiers and army-brats. It was certainly promising for my Empire.
Here's my list:
Librarian with jump pack, infernus pistol, upgraded to Epistolary
Sanguinary Priest with jump pack and power weapon
Sanguinary Guard with death masks, chapter banner, power fist, and infernus pistol
Assault Squad, five strong, with power weapon and storm shield
Dreadnought with multimelta
Will came away pumped. He bought his wife the White Dwarf with the Sisters of Battle rules. We left fifteen minutes after we closed and Will wanted to make it back today. I may have to go give him a one-on-one run today. More than anything, I got to play!!! It begins, finally...
