I played brikwars. Then I started warhammer. I still play brikwars. And warhammer.
Now, I myself don't think I'm a pompous asshole who think's he is an arcane warlock. Nor are the most modellers I know. Well, some of them are nerdy, some more than others and some just plain weird BUT there are "normal" people playing the game too. I have played with some awesome guys with nice themes and stuff for their armies. Sadly, I have also encountered the asshole-players. My greatest dream would to have many different armies to make narrative campaigns.
Overpriced? Arr, that be true. Gw has a monopoly and things get more costy. That is a fact I don't like, and I miss the days when things were cheaper. That doesn't stop me from continuing the hobby. Lego is costly too.
Fix poses...well..it could be interesting to be able to customize miniatures more after they are put together ( magnets ).
Lots of frustating busywork? Well, why the fuck you start a hobby with lot of that work if you won't enjoy it? Why start training football for ages if you don't even like doing that? It's a HOBBY. And all of that work is part of the hobby, and the feeling you get from a painted, ready miniature is awesome. So if you don't even like the work which is required, don't bother to do it.
Limited to zero-usability...well, I have no need to turn my high elf to a orc and on the other day to a beastman. Get more miniatures if you want all three!
I enjoy the hobby of painting and gaming with a full ready army is great. I won't deny the fact about the costly prices,
but that is the only thing that is bothering me. It is also more satisfying (to me) to paint a hero to lead your army than a minifig who you make by combining a few pieces. BUT I enjoy both brikwars and warhammer, most of all because they are so different games. If I feel a bit chaotic and want quick mayhem, then BRIKWARS! But sometimes I want something different and to bring my newly painted army to battle with magic and tactics and against some other guys painted armies!
NO!THERE ARE NO POLAR BEARS IN FINLAND!!!
