I recently moved down to the Twin Cities region, but before I moved from Saint Cloud I was starting to get into both Warhammer Fantasy (Dwarves and Vampires) and 40K (Tau). I was still just starting to get the hang of things and really looking for some people that are willing to help me learn the ropes and play a few enjoyable games with. I really want to get more into the games and maybe get up to the point that I feel comfortable playing in tournaments. So I'm hopefully looking for one or more people who are experienced with the games, living in the metro area, to help me build armies and learn the basics of the game.
At the least, for starters, I would love to know what are some average points for games so I can start thinking over some army lists. While in Saint Cloud we use to play with 1,000 point lists while I was getting the hang of things. Any help would be great.
