This hobby really is a wonderful thing isn’t it. As I approach 24 years in tabletop gaming I find myself as keen as ever for more. I think we all experience lulls and slow hobby times. But I am freshly invigorated once more and busy building, converting, and even painting and playing. It’s been some time since I’ve had any enthusiasm for any of that, and it’s always a wonderful feeling to come back to.
Having had two games of Kings of War in the last week has only put the icing on that cake. Writing new army lists never gets old, sitting back and looking at your masterpiece thinking
My plan for the new year is to try and keep that going. So if anyone is in and around Nottingham and wants a game on a Friday evening, let me know. Once the ogres are done it will either be Halflings, Salamanders, or Riftforged Orcs I think. Or Ratkin. Or Brothermark. Or Northern Alliance.
Definitely one of those.
This hobby generally has been a major part of what has kept me going over the years through good times and bad. I played Fantasy for 19 years, and Kings of War is like the nostalgia of that, with even better rules. I do need to get an old S shaped dragon again though, I love those. Perfect combination of height and footprint. Much like the Mantic giant, it’s imposing without being impossible to move around.
It’s exciting to see the miniatures improving so rapidly too. Totally different to what they were even three or four years ago.
Was there a point to any of this? Not really, just enjoying myself with some rank and flank again, and good lord I’ve missed it.
