They all have no experience in this (me too) so a simple game in this style using mini-figures (that they paint), cards and dice to give them a flavour of this style gaming and let them see if this is something that tickles their fancy.
Welcome to the boards, fellow Dane
From what i can read, your best bet to introduce your students to this form of hobby would be one of the boxed games. I'm talking these two:
Betrayal at Calth
Assassinorum: Execution Force
My reasoning for choosing these two are:
- The rules are quite simple compared to regular wargaming, and are included in the boxed game.
- You have models that are the same as regular 40k/30k games, so you get a taste of the artistic world that is Warhammer.
- You have dice, tactical cards, specific movement, shooting, close combat and overall strategy.
- You have to assemble and paint the miniatures yourself.
If your students like these sort of games, it could be a good introduction to the world of wargaming - I started my journey when I was a kid with HeroQuest and these are the same thing essentially.
But at the end of this fairy tale I want to know if AEF is any good? The reviews seem to suggest its too basic for "serious players" and the mini figures are why people should buy it, but is it a good choice for complete beginners?
For beginners it's quite good - Personally I like Betrayl at Calth more, but that is because it is a bit more advanced in terms of strategy. I play 40k and 30k myself, so my baseline is different than a complete beginner.
If nothing else, they have Gamenights in Dragons Lair on Mondays, so you can stop by and see what people are playing. Ask a few questions and take a look - People are always very welcoming and willing to explain things
I hope it helps
The other resident Dane is quite mad! @Nordicus
I'm not mad! I'm... persistent.
