"How did you know you weren't really going crazy?"
"The voices in my head kept calling me Bruce."
"Yeah, and?"
"In my head, that's not what I call myself."

I thought about warmachine, but honestly 90% of the figures are sub par IMO, and the mechanics and skirmish size just don't apeal.

I played Warmachine for a while, but lost interest quite quickly. I think it was the design of the figures that did it for me.

They have certain Wow factor, but they are not that good on closer inspection.

I haven't played Warhammer for around 10 years but I think I could get back into it quite easily if I won the lottery and could put an army together ;-)
Actually, thinking about it I have probably got enough Dark Elves to put a sizeable army together anyway, I just never got around to finishing them off.

Where abouts are you Just? I'd recommend your local non-GW rpg/wargaming store as a meeting point for local clubs/leagues. You get a wider selection of games if you feel the need to diversify and most of them stock GW so you'll almost certainly have GW players too. Non-GW shop GW players tend to be less rabid about using other manufacturers minis as stand-ins in their army lists too.

I'm not entirely sure all of that made sense :)

ive stuck with warmachine and am happy with it. as its based on RPG style, the mechanics work well for both competative play and social play... the only down side to it is the constant release schedule - but thats a far better way to sell the game the to re-release stuff every 4 years.
