I think I'd have a much easier time convincing a friend who is mildly interested in the hobby to spend $25 on a box of gladiators so he can train and have his own stable in a gladiator style skirmish game vs. talking the same friend in to spending $100's on mini's for a mass battle system.
I may be naïve but I think that there are a lot of people who have an interest in the hobby but stay on the outside looking in because they are not willing to make a large financial commitment to build an army. I think skirmish gaming is a fair and easy compromise. The interested newbie can get in and out of the game and risk only $40 or so total. Of course if the noob enjoys his experience then he will more likely get hooked much as we are and spend every extra penny he can get his fingers on towards projects and games.
