Default My Shop is leaving!

My local Games Workshop Hobby Center is moving and that is the only store for miles around! Even rouge traders are far away.
The thing is there is a shop that somewhat near me, about 45 minutes away, but it's such a way away that my dad says he can't drive there. I can't drive by myself and I want to keep the hobby going. What do I do?

Do what I do. There are no stores anywhere near me. I only order online, and I only get to play when I go visit relatives in Chicago.

Then perhaps you should get together with your buddies and try to establish an organized club and see if you can find a place to play in a school, community center or the like. Or you can try to convince another store in the area to carry GW stuff and establish a gaming space. That could get you a free battleforce box.

I have been playing warhammer for 2 years now, and in that time i have probably only set foot in games workshop about 10 times. You don't need it. I bought most of my stuff all at once or offline. What I would do is catch a bus or train, or other mode of transport every 2 months or so. That way you can save up all your money before going and then spend it all at once,build your models there, and then play your mates with your new models. And if you are that bothered, just get your mates to come round to your house and play

Huh. Well, if I remember correctly, I think that there are some hobby/comic shops around Kenosha. I'd look around on the internet for them.
