I didn't really get any hobby stuff done this past week so thought I'd take a post to discuss the state of where I am with the hobby.
So it used to be that 40K, especially marines, was what kept me really motivated to model and convert and even to paint (the part which I don't enjoy). Then the last edition came out and hit the local game group about like the Hindenburg crashing down on top of the Titanic with Pompeii in the background to set the mood. I've only seen a few 40K games played since then and it's pretty nonexistent right now.
There is still BattleTech and I love expanding my Eridani Light Horse, but it's very hard to get a game of that in. I'm still working on this, and with a vacation next week should start making a dent in that huge list of primered models. With close to a hundred mechs primed, I gotta start making progress soon.
I've also got SAGA on the back burner due to no real opponent and then 15mm with the Gruntz ruleset which while it's interesting to assemble the models and ideas for it, has been a real pain to figure out how to point units up. It's borderline calculus. Neither of these is making fast progress and are slow projects right now at best.
It's kind of odd, now that I'm the most relaxed on the work front in a long time, have a schedule that is giving more time for hobby, and I've got multiple projects available to work on .... that I'm finding it the hardest to motivate myself to make progress on the hobby front. Hopefully it's just a lull that will soon pass. I think a lot of it is due to the frustration on the Infinity front. There is talk of Mordheim in the coming months, and that's always a fun way to spend time converting and getting creative with group ideas.
So that's where it all stands right now. I've got lots of options yet seem a bit lost on the hobby front. If there are any good tales out there or sage advice from those who have been there before, feel free to chime in as always.
