Welcome to The Weekender where we're going to be confronting the very real possibility that Mass Battle Games Are Dead...well, at least Warhammer 40,000 and Age Of Sigmar.

I know, I know...I can see the torches and pitchforks on the horizon already. But, bear with us and let us explain!
Skirmish Games FTW!
When you look at the awesome Kill Team Cat (going to be a thing now) you can clearly see that Kill Team is very much the 'hot' game right now. It has been a big pull for gamers both old AND new, offering up a quick and easy window into the world of Warhammer 40,000.
Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault is the same, as well as Battle Companies from the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game.
Is it getting to the point where people just don't care about playing out massive battles on the tabletop anymore when they could very easily just pick up a Kill Team and have a cheaper and probably more enjoyable experience?
Let us know what you think!
