Default Getting parents/Partners into 40k

I hae allways had an interest in warhammer and my dad has always moaned about how much I spend probally because I have only just finished an army I can fight with, and well hes always wanted me to actually battle one of my mates and I said he should watch us. Hes going to and I was talking about me teaching him and the army he likes is necron so im going to get a core choice for them and teach him but I think its great anyone else had this?

The most interest I've had from my family is either along the lines of "That cost how much?" or "your painting is getting better, I can see where the arms are now".

My father used to have a smililarly expenisve hobby so he can sympathise with me, but I don't think anybody else would be keen on learning the rules.

Nah im keeping it to a basic skirmish first that way my dad will slowly learn good thing he chose necrons, I hate it that your parents hate the cost and moan and then the seem to lack anything good to say when you put in so much effort

I have a very straighline dad. Getting him into it may be a challenge. He didn't deal with Magic: The Gathering too well. :-\
