Okay, so it's has been several weeks since I've posted. I'm disabled with a number of health issues and tomorrow I am undergoing a 'procedure'. In addition, my Warhammer group seems to have died. The other three have new jobs that demand too much time and one of them had a baby.
Anyway, it as been forever since I've played or painted a single piece or even read a single word in a Warhammer novel. I miss it all and am trying to get 'restarted'.
Has anyone else ever been at this stage?;?
The only advice i can give you is, take it easy with your health, buy the gaunts ghosts books ( ) and after you're well, go to a GW or hobbystore and play a game there
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
Yeah I took a break from it for 3 years 2 years ago, its best to try and find something that fires your inspiration and start afresh, for me I had a large number of old dwarf metals, really liked the new plastics, painting and fluff, so i carried on from an old failed project.
Hope you can find your "fresh" angle and that whatever the procedure is that it carries through ok.
aut viam inveniam aut faciam / I'll either find a way or make one.
Out of Gas <- Best episode of Firefly IMHO.
Anyway, this has happened to me every time I've moved. You'll get back into it- it just takes a while.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
Yeah, I kinda dropped out of the whole GW scene when one of my friends jumped into it (I introduced him to the whole thing).
But he was the kind of guy who had to have the best army, the "unbeatable force", and had the money to pump into forge world products, or other items most of the rest of the gaming group I played with just couldn't afford, being mere students. (The university, beer drinking, poverty loving kind)
And with that, my interest waned. University was cutting into my free time, so I had other things to distract me.
Trying to kick off my 40k interest again with Dark Eldar though.
Edit: And yeah, I tried to kick off my interest in MTG again, 'till I met some guy with an 8/8 monster who's special ability was "indestructible" (Figure it out), and a spell, which had the amazing power of "Target player loses game". A part of me died to see such overpowered cards. I'm sure there were ways to counter them, as with anything, but ouch.

Apathy is its own reward...
Well, my own games profile is quite low right now (I got married, my bro got a girlfriend and one of our friends got a job), but after reading alot of Gaunt's ghosts (as in all the published books ) and reading a lot of good things about apocalypse, and playing some dawn of war (which is going to have a new expansion soon) my interest is growing back again.
it also happened with mtg to me, I played since 3rd till 6th or so, then started back again with kamigawa/ravnica due to the flavour of the sets and I'm still mildly interested (mainly due to 2hg, which it's a blast to play with my brother).
I guess we all hit periods of activity. The variables seem to be whether those inactive times are voluntary or not, and how much it matters to you.
I've had stretches where finding time for a game has been really difficult, but it didn't bother me, perhaps because I was busy with work, in need of a break, or just occupied with something more important.
Other times, I've had droughts where I really wanted a game but nobody else was available for the next few weekends.
But involuntary, accidental droughts following a period of recuperation? Nope, unless you count the time I had knee surgery, but instead of playing, I just bought a Wood Elves army box on its release and started a whole new army.
You can always play online. Vassal, right? Or if you enjoy painting. There's the PC games, if you really need a fix.
I'm in college and i want WARHAMMER!
I'm taking out my frustration by building a warlord titan in sculpture. My other friend who goes here who plays warhammer says i'm crazy for acctaully going through with it but its his fualt for suggesting the idea!
Why cant i just drop out and play warhammer...;?
i clicked on this thread thinking you were having problems farting, in which case i can only say eat more fiber.
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
for about two years now.
i did it for ten eyars and then it stopped like a gas tank running empty. It didnt help the way GW started running things.
Though i am slowly getting myself back into it.
Op try reading some of teh novels to give you inspiration or try paintin something small
