This Meetup event is official. The Business Center (Group Study 1) room on the second floor of the Waldorf West Library has been reserved.
On March 9th (previously feb 20/27. see notes below), I would like to invite everyone to get the gears of war rolling again at our first-ever introductory class for Warhammer 40K, 6th edition! Classes are set to begin at 1:30PM and will run until 4:30 PM. Topics to include the following but are not limited to:
1.) Intro to the Warhammer 40K Universe - backstory and a very brief intro to warring armies
2.) Intro to the Warhammer 40K Game - game basics (nothing too heavy)
3.) Intro to the Warhammer 40K Hobby - modeling, painting, terrain building
For those of you who are mildly interested in 40K, this is a great event for you to come out and see, in the flesh, what it's all about! Short of showing up, there is no commitment involved. If you decide: "Meh...not for me." no problem!
For those of you who want to play 40K but are overwhelmed by the game and the hobby, this event (hopefully eventS) will be an invaluable step on the road to becoming fully versed in all aspects of the 40K universe (I do mean ALL aspects: rules, modeling, painting etc..). We will take this class at your pace and fully explain everything you would like to know about 40K.
For those of you who have played 40K before but stopped for one reason or another, this event will be a great opportunity to re-learn the game, from the ground up, under the new 6th edition rule set. A decent amount of things have changed from 4th and 5th ed.
Advanced players are welcome as well. I know you guys don't require a rundown of the rules or the hobby and I know it would be painful for you to sit through a class that does just that, but it is nice to have the knowledge base in the room in case we run into a question that is not easily answered. Experience is always welcome!
