I picked the Warmachine and Hordes old edition rule books up off of eBay last week. I have been playing around with picking up another system for a while now and when I saw these for only a few dollars, I thought I would take a closer look. I know they are not the current set of rules but I was thinking how dramatically different could the rules be from one edition to the next. It was worth the 10 bucks just to have the opportunity to look through the rule books.
I have decided against it for one overbearing factor. Our game store cant even support 40K, let alone trying to push a different system. They charge full price + 8.5% tax and with so many veterans, no one will pay the extra money. I alone have confronted/talked to them, looking like a total ass, about giving some sort of percentage off, but to no avail.
Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that our store doesn't stock it, and has no incentive to do so. Which means that it simply doesn't exist in our gaming circle.
Is it really worth the trouble and money to play a miniatures combat game that is probably only slightly overall different? Especially when considering all the money and time it will take to get an army and find someplace to play? Go ahead, I dare you and try to convince me!
Oh yeah, here is a battle report of me playing Chaos again!
