Though I suppose it would be more accurate to append the word “anymore” to that sentence. That seems to have a certain level of finality to it though, that would be unintentional. The most accurate way to state it would be that it’s been almost a year since I played a game of 40k.
It would be easy to make excuses for this (and boy, are there alot of them: purchased, remodeled and moved into a new house, had our first child, threw my back out–and the corresponding physical therapy). The truth is though, that my interest in the hobby has waned. This isn’t to say the hobby is dead, it’s just not how I chose to spend my free time. This isn’t the first time this has happened; as I’ve stated before, 40k is cyclical for me. I go through spurts where I’m completely obsessed with it, and others where it doesn’t hold my interest, but I always seem to come back to it eventually.
As of late, I’ve been considering doing just that. In fact, last week, I actually planned to play my first game of the year (though that too was cancelled: prempted by the birth of my niece). I will get in a game though. I should probably start small–perhaps just a 1v1 game in my garage, but I’m also thinking of holding an Apoc game as well.
Anywho, there’s not too much to this update, other than to just get some thoughts out “on paper.” I expect to play some games and make some hobby progress in the near future, and undoubtedly, that will lead to more posts.
Talk to you soon…
