So, I finally made the plunge into Warhammer 40k. I have been checking out a couple of the books (for the miniatures game) from a friend from work, and the more I read about it, the more I found it interesting. I found a store that both sells and plays the games, so I purchased the box starter set, Assault on Black Reach.
There are two armies included, a Space Marines army and an Orks army. Both are pretty small, but they are both a good start. Some very cool miniatures, and from what I have been told, the Deffkopters (the Orkish helicopters) can only be found in the box set).
I have been reading the rules, and it is kinda difficult reading in some places. Today, I will be going back to that store, to maybe have someone walk me through a battle.
Looking forward to getting more into the game, though.
