I saw this topic on warseer, and I was interested in what everyone thinks of the topic here? Personally, I was drawn into warhammer for the 'tangibility' of the art and secondly the strategy of the game. I thought the fully painted armies and the inspiring terrain of GW's advertising and rule books was what made it different than just playing a video game or conventional board games. I haven't been playing that long, but the more games I play against unpainted armies and random object terrain on plain tables the more I lose interest in the game itself. I still really like painting armies and building terrain, but I find the gaming is lacking the character that drew me into it? I've even thought about saving a pile of money and just doing small dioramas instead of buying full armies. Does anyone else feel similar, disagree, or feel indifferent about this topic?
The look is incredibly important for me. I play Dark Eldar, and many of the models are very sharp and fast-looking, which i love. There are some models which I refuse to use solely due to the ugly models, such as Warp Beasts, Wyches and Grotesques (conversions pending). The new Tyranids look amazing, I'm so tempted to start collecting Nids again...
