So 40k is a game for dorks, geeks, nerds, math-hammerers, obsessvives, compulsives and general weirdos. And it's been like that for the almost thirty years I've been playing it.

Then I drop onto youtube and see this fat piece of shit doing videos, no doubt while planning how to stance his gray-import Nissan Skyline.

How the fuck do we keep the Adidas/Nike/hip-hop fan/backwards-baseball-cap douchebag wigger normie crowd away from our beloved wargame?

Nope. It's literally "baby's/normalfag's first wargame".

I fear that fat Ali G is being neither 'satirical' nor 'ironic' in his choice of attire.
When I made my commitment to wargaming as a child in the 80's, the douches that listened to early hip-hop wouldn't have been caught dead within 10m of a gaming table.

The gamer set was fun, and the hip-hoppers were all wannabe gangsters, smoking weed, being violent (if cowardly) little shits and constantly trying so very hard to project 'cool'. There was no crossover.

This is my hobby. Wiggers stay out. Problem is the increasing ratio of retards is leading douchebags from other unrelated subcultures into mine and I DON'T LIKE IT.

>>54097953
Now find a segué into your favorite political topic. Nobody will notice, you're so subtle and skilful!

>Nope. It's literally "baby's/normalfag's first wargame"

My first wargame was Donald Featherstone's 'Battles with Model soldiers' circa 1982. Back then, other than Featherstone's works, most wargames were a $2 sixteen-page typewritten booklet made of photocopied A4 (with a light cardboard cover if you were lucky). My second game was a Medieval historical called 'Retinue'. It had a light cardboard cover that was pale yellow.

So fuck you, and fuck your disdain for 40k. I've been wargaming for 35 years and the best games I've played have always had simple rules that make the gameplay flow.

Not saying your opinion is wrong, just saying fuck you (smiley face emoticon)

>You cannot do it, because that's GW target audience
I'd agree that they're trying to appeal to a wider demographic (females, non-whites, not quite SJW's (no female marines...yet)). But their target audience? People that pay $150 for sneakers that cost $8 to make aren't going to pay NZ$74 for a single model that cost $0.12 to make.

>>54098516
I don't want them playing it at all. Seriously, look at the guy in my original post. Why is he playing 40k when there's fake gold chains to buy, hummus and falafel to eat, and white wimminz to proposition from the kerbside?

GW has dozens of stores across the UK. It's a niche hobby, but it's a pretty big niche. Plenty of otherwise normal people collect and play.

Also hip-hop and the like are mainstream as fuck, so you shouldn't be surprised to see fans of it anywhere. Disgusted maybe, but not surprised.

I'm so confused here, you call him a wigger but he's clearly not white?

You can admit to not liking the darks Anon, and not wanting them to play/talk about/contemplate your hobby. This is 4chan, nobody is stopping you but yourself.

Still. I'm curious because you seem to have a particular style fixation which could be taken as quite racist but doesn't seem to be race-based. For you anyway. Like something really ticks you off about people you perceive as fans of hip hop.

You know this isn't a 90s teen movie and the way someone dresses isn't 100% indicative of who they hang out with and what they do?

Normies aren't real, anon. They're a myth. People think Normies are real but they're actually fake. It has never been proven that there are Normies in the real world. Can you really imagine a Normie living in real life, inside a house, sleeping in a bed and getting up and having breakfast? Of course not, it just doesn't stand to reason. It's just not plausible. Normies are fake.

What is your problem exactly? Normally these reactionary threads have some doomsaying bullshit like "noooo GW will pander to the normies and ruin 40k"... but there is hardly anything like that in your posts.

Who the fuck cares, you autistic sperg.
My two main 40k buddies are one guy who's in a band and does modelling work and has 10,000 points worth of Orks in a vitrine in his bedroom, and the other guy is a buff motherfucker who used to be in the Bundeswehr.
40k is for everyone, and some nerds are just good at hiding their powerlevel.

Why do you want to self-identify as a dork/geek/nerd/etc?

Maybe the issue is that you're so lacking in self-confidence that simply playing a game with [majority of population] makes you uncomfortable.

Look, I understand why you're pissed off, but I really don't see the problem with normies playing 40k. It's hard enough to find a game where I live, so I'm fine with tolerating anyone that'll play with me. Most normies are harmless, and one of the best roleplayers I ever met was a former meth addict.

>> No.54103194

>40k
>Not for normies

I hate to break it to you, but with all the bragging about being the most popular, most accessible minis game on the market, it also means that it's the most accessible game for anyone, especially including the nerd-lite types like Felicia Day / Wil Wheaton and whoever that guy is.

If you really can't stand normies, go play some historical hex-and-chit games.
