Oh my, field trip to Coshocton?!? Your school must've been a bunch of cheap arse's. This town has less life in it than the road kill I passed today. Its one big retirement home is what it is. No jobs, lots of pharmacies, and Historical Roscoe Village.

Anyway, enough of that rant. If you get a chance to head this way or you wanna try to schedule something just pm me. I'm usually not on here from Mon-Wed though, I don't work on those days so I'm not online much.

I've lived here in Charlotte, the "Queen City of the South," for just over three years now.
We had a GW corporate store in our Mills mall that closed down about the time I moved here. For being an area with just under 2 million people in the metro area, we have a relatively few places where one can play Warhammer. A couple hobby shops sell it as an afterthought, one other is more into MTG and Pokemon so he just has some 40k stuff as a courtesy, and two are there pretty much war-gaming every night... one fantasy and one 40k.

I am very glad that I found the place where I go now. It's a little bit of a drive because I live in the sticks, but worth it. They sell all their GW stuff for a discount, so it's better than mail-order.

It's mainly "older" guys who play there... guys in their 30's as far as I know. (I'm 35, so I guess I fit in with the crowd.) There are also a group of loyalist school-aged kids that come in and they are quite the wild bunch.

@ Loyalist,
I'm pretty sure that Philly is East and Chicago is West of you. (Sorry, geography geek in me made me do it.)

That's alright... I was chatting with a guy on another board and he thought he was on the east coast ('cause we were talking about time zone difference between here and UK) but he was in Washington State.

I was like, "dude, add three hours to what we just said."

i live in an area where not many people can afford warhammer 40,000 so literally i am the only one in like a mile radius to have warhammer, i always lend them to other people as i have too many...

everyone, listen, whenever there is a light in the dark, it is the Emperor of mankind, but when there is a dark in the light, then, it is the towering form of one of the chaos gods, preferably khorne!!!

I am here in Halifax Nova Scotia, not a bad gaming scene here I guess, we have 3 main comic book stores that have coverd our needs well for a long time.
Then came the GW store 3 years ago and now we have a nice place with about 5 full size tables, 2 4x4 tables and 2 4 seater painting tables. It has helped the gaming around here grow arround here alot. Parents will actuly go into this store and buy stuff for the kids they were scared of the comic store I think hehe.

Only problem with them is that once they came into town, the GW distribuiter stoped selling to the local store I went to (Mirror Universe comics and hobbies). The wanted to basicly foce customers to go to the GW store for stuff. Now MU has since shut down so my group and I have started at the local GW store. Dont get me wrong it is a great store and the guys working there are all great. They did not make the choice to stop selling to the little guys so we don't hold it against them.

Long story short, Gaming is good, you can go in and find a game when ever you want basicly.

I'm from Washington State and am just getting started. I have some friends from school who are pretty into it and there are gw shops nearby where they go along with a good indy shop. We have enough terrain to play a game with 4 ~1000 armies.
