Hey guys and girls,
I am researching for the perfect game to get my tabletop game feet wet. I have painted several different minis over the years, from warhammer to walking dead. But I've never actually played any table games.

I enjoy a good story, with lots of in depth characters,back stories, and terrain/location info. A good map, with plenty of room to explore, exploit, invade, etc..is important. I also like having different objectives, not just rolling the dice and drawing a card over and over again. I do enjoy the futuristic worlds but also a mediaeval type era as well. Maybe a mix of the 2? Minis is a must since I like to paint them. Finally customization to the game, board, characters would be cool too. Anyone out there have any good recommendations? Does a game like that exsist?
Thanks for any info laugh

Necromunda: Underhive will be coming out soon. The original was amazing (best tabletop game I've ever played, probably), and it checks all the boxes, especially the story one.

You might want to also take a look at Mythic Battles: Pantheon once it comes out at the end of the year.

Be advised, Pantheon will not be available through retail or through their online store according to recent news in the Pantheon and Mythic Games forums. You will have to find it either 3rd party, or you could preorder it from Thegamesteward.com which may be your best bet.

So, to summarize, you need to buy a game with a colon in the name.

Oh, about 4 hours north of New Orleans... by air (not counting layovers). (You can actually see where I live my hovering over the flag near my username.)
