Need help picking a tabletop game
The biggest problem I've run into while attempting to play any form of board game is always the same, I only have 1 truly devoted strategy gaming friend. (you may know him as dysplastic) This has pretty much killed 'boardgame night' which I miss o so dearly.
I've been thinking that a perfect way to get back into it would be to play a tabletop miniature wargame; the games tend to be geared towards 2 players and it would also fill that hobby void I've been experiencing since me and wow broke up.
I played some 40K and necromunda as a kid, but frankly, I don't remember much of it except that I was really into painting the miniatures and building terrain.
The problem is that it is an expensive hobby, one that I'm ok with spending on, however, Dysplastic may not. So my question to you all is, what game do you suggest? I'm torn between a smaller scale game (less miniatures = less expensive) and a more elaborate game such as 40K (possibly more fun?)
I've looked at Warhammer 40K, Mordheim and Necromunda but I can't seem to find any other games that pique my interest. any other game suggestions? Any of you played these? Any favorites?
