I really like the Warhammer fluff (both 40k and fantasy). I'm less familiar with the table top game but I have watched a couple of battle reports on youtube and flipped through a codex or two...and the table top game looks really fun, I would definitely give it a shot if time and money allows in the future.

I am curious though, I'd like to ask the forum members here, what is the status of the Warhammer game where you live? Is it considered a really nerdy/geeky past time (or is this more of an American attitude that any activity that involves a bit of thinking is for geeks, and if it involves gluing models and painting them, my god only a huge nerd would do such a thing)?
Do a lot of the people you meet who play Warhammer actually fit the nerd/weirdo stereotype, and about how old are most of them?
