Actually it doesn't as this visit was very fun and engaging, even more so than the other Warhammer stores I have visited. Regular readers will note that I haven't posted much lately and that is due to the copious amount of training I am doing for my new job. The latest training has taken me to Richmond Virginia, and after I got here I decided to look and see if there was a Warhammer store nearby -and sure enough there was! After locating it, I was immediately impressed by how warmly I was greeted by the Manager (Bree) and the store's patrons. The conversation was easy to get going, as 40k-geekdom is a language unto itself!
After a brief introduction and tour of the store I asked Bree, the manager, if it was OK to take some pics for this blog and she enthusiastically said yes. These first pics, as one would expect, showcase the starter sets for Warhammer 40,000 and WH: Age of Sigmar. As a new customer or first time patron would likely see these as their gateway into these game systems, they are placed right at the front of the store.

|The Stompa dominates the case!|
As were these obviously Khorne themed mods.
|Lots o' Blood for the Blood God!|
|Everyone starts somewhere!|
|The Shyish Campaign.|
After talking rules and GW history with the folks there I made a purchase (an audiobook, for the ride home) and wished everyone well. I have found out that 40k day is Thursday nights so I hope that when I return to town next week (yay, more training) I will be able to stop by on that night and see what the action is like. If you live in this part of the country, or are passing through, go and pay the store a visit. I am sure you'll leave inspired like I did!
