Any relatively cheap yet popular wargames? Basically poor mans Warhammer (either fantasy or 40k) is what I'm looking for.

Define poor. Like $50-$100? Lower? Higher?

Look for games with low model counts. Part of Warhammer's high cost is the high number of models being fielded.
>>
Just buy the cheapest model and have them hold up tiny paper signs saying what unit they are along with a notecard with all the stats taped onto the bottom.
>>
Wargames aren't cheap hobbies. Even the cheaper ones which need less miniatures, like Infinity, are still pricey.
>>

Fo real. Infinity has some expensive models man, you just need less of them.
>>
>>44672315
You'll want some skirmish game. Less models less money
>>

If you want to play Warhammer, check out Kill Team, Regiments of Renown, Warbands, and Mordheim. They're all skirmish rules, so it's pretty cheap.

so, Battletech? I mean a typical lance is like four mechs, and for just a pickup game it's pretty normal for one lance (or less) to be your entire side.

hell nobody's even forcing you to buy the models for those four mechs; my starter set was dirt cheap and came with a bunch of little cardboard mech standups for pieces.
>>
>>44672315
Kings of war from mantic is literally that

otherwise, go skirmish, like infinity or malifaux or something

battletech? x-wing?

you dont need many models to play. and you can buy box sets that got you sorta covered.
