GENERAL: Checking out and shutting down

I have now cancelled my website contract with 1&1 so sometime in February my three blogs will disappear from their webspace. They should still be floating around on Blogger though! I have no firm idea if and when I will return to them, and if I do what I'll be doing on them.

Things still aren't great for me at the moment. I have no stomach for gaming in any way, shape or form. My latest White Dwarf lies unopened, I haven't bought the 'Nid codex, I haven't followed the Blood Angels rumours and I haven't listened to a single podcast or visited a gaming forum since December.

I had already fallen out of love with the playing games side of the hobby some time ago, and now the painting has stopped too. I might return to the painting, but if I'm not playing the games, why paint an entire army? Would I not be better served concentrating on painting a handful of models to a good display standard?

Given that I am also skint, it therefore makes sense to sell off the majority of my collection and keep a handful of models I still want to paint.

The only other aspect of the hobby I can foresee maintaining at the moment is my reading.

So, that means my blogs may become a medium for reviewing Games Workshop fiction, showing off the odd paint job and selling my models.

Anyway, that's for the future.

For now, adieu!

  1. Be sorry to see you leave the warp for good buddy, but been there, done that myself, so can only wish you health, wealth and happiness.

    Keep reading (I went to the Black Library Day on Sat) as the HH stuff sounds awesome. And you've gotta hope the Blood Angels mins live up to the hype, time to paint red!

    All the very best!
