Here's a better idea- you DON'T try shoving it down his throat, and let him see if he likes it on his own terms.

Trying to aggressively convince people that something is "Awesome" has a tendency to push them away harder than it draws them in.

A lot of people don't like Space Marines. They're often overhyped and overexposed at the expense of the other, debateably more interesting, factions. It can leave people rather bitter to see their own factions being ignored or used as cannon fodder for the Marines. Though the sort of viterol being thrown around here really isn't called for.

So don't fucking spam one army at him while shouting "LOVE THE MARINES, LOVE THEM! I THINK THEY'RE AWESOME AND YOU SHOULD TOO!"

Jeezus fuck, GW does that enough as it is. Just show him the fucking game, and some cool fucking pictures, and make sure to show him EVERYTHING and not just spess mehreens. If he likes it, great. If he opts to play something other than fucking canon-sues, then that's fine too.

As to why people hate space marines? Frequent a gamestore, and deal with fuck-tards constantly spouting shit like 'Lol mehreens are the best', 'Orks only exist to be shot', 'why don't you make an army of marines? I bet they'd look awesome'. And then have them whine and bitch about your army being 'overpowered' when you curb-stomp their gimmick-infested codex.

Citadel Clean-up Kit

Before you assemble and paint your miniatures it's important to clean off any mould lines and flash (excess resin from the casting process). The Flash Brush will help you remove excess resin from the miniature without damaging the fine detail. The Mouldline Scraping Tool is similarly useful and allows you to clean the mouldlines off your miniatures safely and easily.

This set contains one Flash Brush and one Mouldline Scraping Tool.

Price: $13.25

I will say this is a fair point. Warmachine's fun...but it's never really come alive for me. It's never felt like anything more than a game. For all it's myriad flaws, 40k just feels so much more exciting and involving.

Warmachine/Hordes are cool games, if you like the unholy spawn of table top games with CCGs. Sure, WM/H aren't collectible by default, but you're basically building combos in your list and hoping to go first so you get it off first and win.

The rules may be better written than 40k's, but I still would rather play 40k.

I almost always go second on purpose with my extreme mobility RoS list. And I have yet to run up against anyone with a purely "combo" army since MKI.

What WM really has going for it is tactics > list building. Whereas you can lose in 40k before you even get your mandollies out, a suboptimal list can take mad wins with a skilled player in WM.

Except back in 2nd, mehreens weren't the only ones with variant lists.

By 'needless mehreen spam', I'm referring to the (very valid) point that marines are now the ONLY army in the game that still has it's variant army lists. EVERY other army literally had their variants castrated off, in a bloody and undignified manner. All of which, have been in the game since 2nd as well... some as far back as RT era.
