I've been playing MTG for years but I've become interested in playing Warmachine.
My question is: Where do I start? Do I pick up a battlebox? If so, do I need to get two so the two factions can play against each other if I don't already know anyone who plays? I read in this thread that it's recommended picking up a Battlebox, but should I pick up two boxes if I'm going to play with someone else who has not played before?
Is there a difference between the Warmachine battleboxes and the Horde boxes?
Been searching through the store on the Privateer Press site, but I'm not sure what to buy to get started. Something that will serve as a good starting point and that will last for a month or so while I learn to play.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
