Yep it is a two player boardgame where one is the Space Marines and the other player is the alien Genestealers. When the genestealers are not in Line of Sight they appear as blips on the board. So kinda gives an Alien-esque movie vibe except being helpless civilians you are super human soldiers with guns and flamethrowers.Is Space Hulk a miniatures based boardgame? I know the card game by the same name which is pretty good.
The Abington store started doing some tournaments because the 40k guys up there said "i want them, i want them" but then got low turnout. Tournaments have kind of been in decline anyway in 7th edition. New codexs coming out fast and furious is great but on the other hand makes it hard for guys to keep up.I have spent some time in the abington store, but im about the same distance from either one. I'm building a white scars army now and will hopefully get to play the damn game and finish the army in november when im done with this job.
Both the stores do a lot of magic events, that's pretty much their main cash flow. They don't sell near enough model kits or boardgames to keep the lights on.I sometimes frequent the Abington store for paints, i really don't have an idea about how much wargaming goes on there. All i see most of the time is Magic being played.
I am hoping to find a place to learn and play Infinity because i really fell in love with the aesthetic and realistic proportions compared to the slightly deformed proportions of Warmachine and WH40k
I say it depends it seems like a big investment if you try to calculate it all at once, but when you first start you usually get a starter box or something like that which can be like 50~ or 80-100~ for a two player box (Inifnity, Warmachine, Hordes)Battlegrounds in Plainville has a lot of people going in and playing these games. I'm in to board games but not sure I'd dump the money in to something like this.
I don't know of that a game named that but there are Flames of War that goes from WWII to Vietnam to Arab-Isreali conflict. Then there is Team Yankee which is WW3 with Abrams and A-10's vs T-72's and stuff like thatSorry for my complete lack of knowledge, but I remember way back being told about a miniature's game based on modern weapons called something like CHQ? I just remember almost picking up some bmp's ant t72's (ended up buying 1/87 scale ones instead due to the ease of use).
All I ever see in gaming stores is warhammer and magic cards.
Thanks, not that I have money or time but it might be fun to start building up a set for me and the kid when he gets olderI don't know of that a game named that but there are Flames of War that goes from WWII to Vietnam to Arab-Isreali conflict.
