Why is Warhammer so expensive?

The reason they feel so expensive is because the games that Games Workshop supports require a large quantity of models, while companies like privateer games support games with a low count of models. As such, it is cheaper to buy an army for, say warmachine, than it is for Warhammer 40k or Age of Sigma.

So, in short, was Sigmar one of the Lost Primarchs? Absolutely not. It wasn’t even clear on the Warhammer World for a long time whether Sigmar was even a god or just a jumped-up human cultural hero for the ancient tribes of the Empire of Man. But AoS has definitely answered that question.

No. If anything AoS has killed the theory that 40k is in the same universe as the old Fantasy setting. The way worlds and universes exist in AoS are also completely different than in 40k. 40k and fantasy were linked thanks to the realms books but they are no longer canon so the answer is no.

Warhammer 40k is the future of our own Earth, and Warhammer Fantasy is not the past of our own Earth, so 40k is not the future of fantasy.

Is 40k Fun?

In my opinion, warhammer 40k is one of the best tactical board games I have ever played. It is so easy to create stories and scenarios for your armies, and the gameplay itself is very fun(most of the time). I know a few people who just like the models and build armies as a collection rather than for a game.
