The Boyz are back in town
Warhammer 40,000
I’ve been wargaming for over seven years but I’ve never been inspired to play Warhammer 40k; the game seemed expensive, cumbersome and tedious. 8th Edition has apparently fixed this and that has me finally dipping my toes into the GW franchise that has captivated so many before me.
