Why don't more people play epic?

Of course, there is another alternative (if this hasn;t been presented elsewhere), make up two armies and invite your friends to use one when they come over, or take them both to your club/game-store and challenge people to a game.
That way you'll both get a game of Epic and possibly convert some more players locally.
Just a thought.
Sure, but the FW fish'ead models are quite expensive, so making an army of them, and then noticing none in my area wants to play EPIC would be totally EPIC FAIL(pun intended ) .

But if you get a couple of cheap armies first, like off eBay or something (that's where I got 90% of my Orks including the Gargants! ) you can "test the waters" using those before "splashing out" (pun intended also!) on the expensive FW stuff!
And that way you'll have 3 armies at the end of the day and may be able to sell one to a friend to recoup some costs! Especially if you've done a decent job on the painting etc.
Hope this is encouraging?
You talked me into it , now I just need to find those 150£ to buy a FW fish'ead army, and I have to get the new ork stuff too ,
why did you talk me into it!

Hence I've aqcuired a Beakie army (a very generous gift from our own Zog + some bitz 'n bobs from Boss Teefstrukk) that I've invested a couple of euros in to expand.
This way I'll be able to (once it's painted) let my friends play a game or two when they visit me, and I can give demos in the club I'm visiting as of late, so maybe I can inspire people there too.
Yer very welcome, and it would be good to see the game played more
I have Orks, Feral orks (not assembled), panzee (being painted by Stretch), Beakies (being painted by Stretch), and Nids (not many but we'll see )
so i have a fair few armies to 'lend out' and i also have loads of panzee troops left so maybe a Dark-panzee army?
My mate is doing tin'eads and we will have to see what else we can scare up

I've started a Space Wolf Epic army to counter my Orks so that I can challenge people to play (once I've learnt how!!!)
Here's a link to the pics so far of my Ork opponents!
So not too long before I'll have enough stuff to have a game!
