Partner started when he was 8, I've started twice at 12 and 19
Have known people who've only just started the hobby in their thirties and over too. Usually once the kids have off and outed giving more spare time and cash for personal persuits.z

Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Always been interested in the hobby since i can remember, but i finally bucked up and bought my first army and codex and rules at the age of 20. I'm sure no one will care what age you are if your interested in starting to play! I know i wouldnt haha
It's never too late to start. My local game store has regulars of every age range, even up in the 50s! (If my estimate of his age is correct, I've never actually asked). No one will judge you based on your age.
I started about 6 years ago when I was 11, but as said above, I doubt anyone will care what age you are! Just jump right in!
If there's one thing i leart from the hobby is that people are often alot better to talk to than you think they'll be. I used to frequent the local independent trader when I was 14ish and all the older guys and young ones interacted in friendly ways, and because we all had the same hobby we always had something to talk about. Yeah 12 and under's can be a bit immature, but nearly all clubs or GW store gaming nights will have people your age to converse with in a sensible adult manner
Take the plunge, no-one's going to kill you for trying it out... except maybe the guy with the khornate axes, watch out for him ;-)

I am President of the Brunel University wargames society - PM me if interested.
I started playing when I was 8 or 9 years old, I didn't really get into it until a few years after that though.
Most of the people in my local store seem to be in their 20's, but it's not unusual to see anyone between the ages of 10 and 60 in the store for a game.
I don't think you should worry about the learning curve of the game, we all have to re-learn the game to some extent whenever a new edition comes out anyway.
