I used to work in an LGS that had a strong WarHammer focus, next to the major card games it was the biggest source of income, but I never pitched a game like that with the fluff right off the bat.

I would just tell them about the game in simple terms an outsider would understand (we got a lot of customers who had never played a tabletop game before, so we had to prepare them in order to prevent irate situations the next day).

I get that he's telling kids this but still.

I think it's the right way to do it, a lot of the fun in tabletop wargaming, at least for some players, comes from the storytelling that it offers, I've played with guys who will recount and narrate events as they happen, they don't just say "wow I only hit with one bolter from that whole squad" they tell me why, they explain why that unit of highly trained marines acted so uncharacteristically incompetent.

I think it's good to explain to new people how they can be telling stories, otherwise why not just play chess?

Then again, I got started with BattleChess, which did actually show combats for every capture. Or should I say "brutal murder".

>not telling a comedy of manners akin to Jane Austen with your chess pieces

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a knight in possession of a great leaping ability must be in want of a bishop.

The Orks are going: "WOTS DAT?"

Dude reminds me of when I initially got into it. The narrative has always been the appeal for me, this guys clearly been playing for ages. Have a fucking play with them don't get so super serious.

That basically sums up their entire character.
Except maybe you might also have them argue over whether they're going to shoot it, stomp it, or blow it up.

>> No.21869872

>implying orks don't rape and pillage everything they find and enslave humanity in order to further their warmachine of rape, death, torture, and sodomy.

They're not interested in any of that except the death part. They reproduce asexually.

You're mixing orks and dark eldar.
