Sometimes, I like to go on Ebay to look at certain things.

These are all things I would like, but do not need: Things like games for my 3ds, or older, out of print board games, or (recently) a rack based instrument preamp. I rarely bid, unless I find a good price on an auction. And it takes me a long time to hit a buy it now button for whatever reason.

Anyway, I’ve been getting a wargaming itch lately.

I have a small force of Skaven for WHFB, but never really got too into the game because of the high buy in and power creep. I’ve been looking for another one, perhaps on a smaller scale (so it isn’t quite so expensive), and I will admit that Warmahordes caught my eye a while ago. Sadly, I couldn’t convince someone to buy in with me the last time I got this itch, so I was spared the cost of the two-player battle box. I did, however, look at the factions available, so I know which ones I like.

I like the flavor of The Protectorate of Menoth a lot, on the Warmachine side. And on the Hordes side, I think my allegiance has to lie with the Skorne Empire. Other factions look interesting, but those two have the best fluff for a player like me. So, when I saw a Menoth Battlegroup up for auction for about 1/2 the price of the going rate on Amazon, I hurriedly placed a bid- $0.50 more than the last person, thinking I would quickly be outbid.

I was not.

So, now I have a Menoth Battlegroup coming to the house. I am currently on the lookout for another battlegroup, so my friends have someone to play as against me (They’ve shown an interest in Khador and Trollbloods before, if I recall correctly, I will probably get one of those). I have little clue what to expect with the actual game, aside from comparing it to Warhammer Fantasy. I’m sure it will be different, and that I have a lot to learn.

But, for all intents and purposes, I am officially a Warmahordes player now!
