Here are ten reasons I think everyone should play Warhammer 40k (WH 40k):
(1) Giant User Base. The Warhammer 40k table top game has been around for decades and the user base is constantly growing. While most other games out there have been eclipsed by the video gaming market, the Warhammer 40k table top game continues to grow. You will never run out of people to play with.
(2) Fun Hobby. WH 40k is a game but it is so much more than that. It is a fun hobby to get into.
(3) Get Away from the Computer! I love computers. I’ve played with them since I was a little kid. I Blog, and I do all of my work on my computer. What’s awesome about Warhammer 40k is that I can turn off my computer and disconnect from the “online” world for a while. It’s a great way to reconnect with the “real world” while having fun.
(4) Makes You Smarter. The WH 40k table top game exercises your mind because it requires creativity, strategy and planning. All of those things contribute to a healthier brain. Brainless video games don’t.
(5) Customizability. You can customize your 40k army to be unique to you. Be different, be yourself, be unique.
(6) Your Friends Will Gawk Over Your Models. All your friends are going to “ooooohh” and “ahhhh” over your amazingly painted models. You can hide the ones that didn’t turn out.
(7) Girls Will Want to Date You. The right type of girls will want to date you. You know which ones I’m talking about.:)
(8) No More Pointless Video Game Violence. Why subject your mind to pointless, mind-numbing video game violence when you can have much more fun and actually get smarter by playing Warhammer 40k. Just as much fun as your next violent video game, with the added benefit of building brain cells while you play.
(9) Cheaper Than Most Hobbies. Although the amount of money you can spend on Warhammer 40k is endless if you have money to burn, it doesn’t cost a lot to get started and be awesome. Compare WH 40k to any other hobby out there and you’ll see it’s definitely much more cost efficient.
(10) Warhammer 40k Can Prolong Your Life. Painting the models is fun, meditative and relieves STRESS. Stress has been proven to be one of the top killers in the world. Therefore, if WH 40k relieves stress, then it also means that it can save your life.:)
To get started with Warhammer 40k, you’ll need the Warhammer 40k starter set which is called Assault on Black Reach.
