Changing direction

Good evening guys and girls,

I return to my neglected corner of the net after yet another long absence. I have been busy but also have struggled to actually get enough finished to be worthy of a post.

Fast forward to last weekend and I went to my normal meet up with Rictus and Nife, which has given me the kick I needed to post. The one thing that the meet up has opened my eyes too is just how little I am interested in the GW side of this hobby anymore. None of us particularly took our games of 40k seriously during the 1 day we had at WHW, this is when something clicked in my head that it was time to wrap up most my GW projects.....

Red Corsair Lord - Just for Sheep seen as hes been nagging via Rictus to see proof I've actually been working on stuff

Don't get me wrong I will finish what I've got(Corsairs and Tau) and still play when we have our meets, just I will now resist buying any more stuff and begin the long process of sorting out what to sell off.

The end isn't nigh though as though my interest in GW dwindles I have found new interest in other parts of the hobby those being skirmish and board games. The meet up gave us chance to try out some new games notably sedition wars and dreadball(the big hit of the weekend) as well as the now staple zombicide and I am finding them just so much more fun and interesting than 40k.

First game of Sedition Wars
Dreadball a awesome little game

I think part of it is the self contained nature of them and in the case of dreadball its just fun and very easy to get into. So much so that I have ordered myself a team for it.

Another game I have gathered some bits for is infinity, I love the sculpts for this game as well as the ghost in the shell vibe it has. The fact you can have a game with only a handful of models per side is an added bonus, I hope to take this along to the next meet up.

 Mars Attacks Kickstarter

And finally we have one last game this time one I have invested in on kickstarter and I blame nife entirely for this.....,Mars Attacks. Looks like a really fun little skirmish game that is again all self contained add to that that the gaming mat and terrain will run dual use with infinity and its a steal.

Thats it for now guys, a bit text heavy I know but now you can see the new direction I'll be heading in. Next update will likely focus on me painting up my dreadball team but might be a while away yet as I have a lot on my plate in real life at the moment.
