WarHammer/ WarHammer 40 000?? My friend recently introduced me into collecting these figurines known as WarHammer and WarHammer 40 000. I just want to know if anyone else collects these things or has ever even heard of this. If you do not know what these things are, they're overpriced miniatures which you assemble and paint by hand. Then you can play and have battles with other friends once you have assembled and collected an entire army. I didn't think that these things would be very popular (as I have never heard of them before), but when I accompanied my friend to a store to purchase some, it was packed withmany customers... I'd just like to know if anyone else on these forums collect these kind of things, and if you do, what race do you like? I am mostly talking about WarHammer 40 000 because I am not vary familiar with the original WarHammer. If you would like to know, I collect this race called Tyranids, which is mostly made up of insect-type alien creatures.
