    Re: Where have all the 40k players gone?

    We all go through a period of burn out with this hobby from time to time, so welcome back. Honestly I think that table top war gaming was always a niche hobby, that was big with veterans, re-enacters, and history buffs. Before I knew about GW, I saw people advertising miniatures in magazines for military history aficionado's, but no where else really. Not many people were in it before GW, and perhaps they made it a little more mainstream, but no comparison to something to a video game even back in their hey day. This hobby was always more expensive and required more dedication than my strategy games from back in the 90's that I played on the computer. Now the competition is a lot more involved, but table top war games are probably back at the same popularity to before computers were created. My dad was an avid player of High Command, a strategy computer game based around WWII Europe, but I doubt that he would spend hours getting an army put together for FOW or Bolt Action, nor did he ever really express any interest in this hobby. He never played a war game with miniatures his whole life that I know of, if you discount the standard army men that most kids played with long ago. I think that his experience was more common than not.

    thanks.

    I agree the hobby is very niche and even though it is more popular then ever. but i would not think more then one in a thousand play. I have personally found it a way to meet people and make friends. Something I have always enjoyed.
