Epic Target Demographic
Taken from the GW General discussion thread as this seems to be an interesting point.
All the marketing done for each of the gaming systems of GW aside, as well as the prices. Who do you think Epic Armageddon is intended for?
My personal opinion is that this is a perfect game for beginners, less so for adults.
Here are my reasons.
1. The models are easier to paint. because of the size you only need to apply basic painting techniques. Painting standard across epic forces doesn't vary as much as in any 28mm wargame.
2. Conversion work is so difficult, that in the most cases it is not even applied. Having ranks after ranks of infantry demotivates any attempt to work with poses, while the large size of 28mm actually encourages it.
3 The models have less parts most of the time.
- you see painting and conversion works have to be learned with year long training. In Epic the difference isn't that visible, engulfing the work of beginners faster into the community standard
4 You can have large armies much quicker than in a 28mm game, getting the satisfaction of having a recognisable force faster than in a larger scaled wargame.
