BBC Reports on Warhammer 40,000 at 25...

...and manages to not be scathing about it.

I came across these stories on the bus this morning, just thought I'd share!

Why are grown men still launching tabletop war?

Why Warhammer 40,000 is still popular after 25 years

Very nice indeed. I might also place them on my blog if you don't mind. (Mentioning yours of course!)

Thanks for the link. Its a nice 'outsiders' view of the game.

The article was ok - mildly mocking but also acknowledging the strength of the game after 25 years. Unfortunately some of the comments that have followed show how far our hobby has come and how far it still has to go. If cat it got me so riled up I've just posted an article about it on my blog just to get my opinion off my chest!

As soon as I saw it this morning I thought about how many bloggers would comment on it ... I have to say I joined in as well although I was much more cynical about it. The comments and feedback were quite positive, but the writer seemed to be trying to cast it in a bit of a 'geeky' light I thought.
