Once you dive into the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop wargame, you’ll soon discover which experiences and styles of play you enjoy the most, and start adding to your collection accordingly. There are datasheets available for every miniature that Games Workshop releases, which will give you an idea of how each unit works on the battlefield.
While it’s important to remember that gaming should be fun for everyone, it’s fun to identify your army’s strengths, and add models together that complement each other particularly well. This can be a great hook to drive your collection, though you can have just as much fun with a force filled with units that appeal to you personally.
Many collections are inspired by the ancient enmities of the Warhammer 40,000 galaxy. As a collection grows, you have even more choice when picking an army for games. Every single Citadel Miniature is full of character and packed with detail. There are also an incredible amount to choose from, with more being released all the time.
For many hobbyists, it’s often a case of picking up whatever draws their attention. Some prefer to collect single models, often heroes and champions, upon which they can lavish their utmost attention. Others are particularly devoted to certain factions or unit types – the implacable, pox-ridden legions of the Death Guard, for example, or the monstrous bio-organisms of the Tyranids. Over time your painting skills will improve and you might want to take on ever greater and more challenging projects.
