In my thoughts, what i thought was that i wouldn't go to someones house flat out! But this is a problem easily overlooked. Then, id ask for a specific address and if its a supposed gaming club, do your research. Post here on Heresy looking for information, check google for info on the club, or even on a social networking site such as Facebook or twitter.

Tanks win battles, infantry win firefights, artillery win wars.

I don't think I should ever invite strangers for a game here.
Seems to me like your just setting the right ambiance for a game of WH40K, especially if the armies fielded are either CSM/Daemons or Dark eldar

But seriously I think I would feel a whole lot more comfortable playing a game at your place than I would be when playing at a hause that looks all normal. Or is that just me being my own Satanic sadistic self again?

Just wanted to say that^^.

It's not as different as you might think. We still have about the same amount of crime, rapes, assaults, talking back to your boss (yes, it's a crime in the USMC), but no gun crime. Maybe it's because we screen out all the retards?

The biggest advantages to meeting up at someone's house are: 1. convenience, not as far of a drive, 2. playing without interruption of the local rules Nazis, 3. playing with like-minded players. I like playing for fun, for the cinematic experience of seeing my painted army fielded against another painted army on a painted and logical field of battle. I don't get these things at the local game store. Generally, the local game store crowd are: 1. Too young, 2. Too obnoxious, 3. Too worried about winning using questionable tactics and rule loopholes, 4. unpainted armies or spray-painted, 5. not willing to sacrifice outcome for fun.
