Hey Dakka team, I’m moving to Charlotte, NC at the beginning of next year, and I am looking for a gaming group. I have always wanted to start wargaming (specifically 40k and AoS) but have never pulled the trigger. Money, time, ect always getting in the way it seemed. I really want to start my first army, and I would love to join a local group who wouldn’t mind a complete newbie to drink some beers and throw some dice. Weekday evenings are probably best, I’ve got 2 small kids (16 months and 1 week) so usually I save my weekends for family time.

I also am interested in DND 5e, board games, and used to play MTG a long time ago.

There's the GW in Charlotte, and there's Mighty Meeple which is really a nice place.

If you can get out to Newton, we have X-Wing and Board Game nights. But I'm the only 40Ker. (And I'm way out of practice)

My beloved 40K armies:
Furry Emperor's Children
Order of Saint Pan Thera

I noticed the GW store when I did a quick Google, honestly felt a little intimidated jumping right into playing at a FLGS without any practice games under my belt. Everyone starts somewhere I guess though right?

Newton seems a bit far (about an hour I think) it would be a hike to get out there. Probably not something I could keep up consistently though. If I’m in the area I will absolutely hit you up though. We could probably both use the practice.

Yeah most places outside of the city limits is going to be a 45- an hour drive but a lot of the stores are worth it. Another one I can recommend is Parker Banner Kent and Wayne.

Hey Chessonator, welcome to Charlotte! I’m a dad too getting back into 40K after being out for over 20 years...so a newbie like you. The local GW shop is very welcoming and when you get to Charlotte, hit me up! We can play some games and learn the 8th editition rules together, I even have 2 armies so you play with one of those

That’s great! I recently just bought the 8th rulebook to skim through and study a bit before I actually started. It would be awesome to try some armies out before I bought anything, however I am already very partial to both Ad Mech and Dark Angels purely based on lore and looks alone. I’ll be moving into my new house mid January and checking out local gaming shops soon after that so I will make sure to hit you up.

Well that works out well. I find myself geared more towards the shooting style armies. Not because they are shooty, for some reason I have just always liked their looks and style.

Reviving this thread just to let anyone who might be interested know that I’m planning on hitting up the Charlotte store tonight for some pick up games. I’ve only got about 1,000 points in various stages of painting process, but I can’t wait any longer to start rolling dice.
