    So, I want to return to the hobby...

    Basically I took a break from the hobby for a few months, mostly due to it being summer and having to do other things!

    But now I want to start painting and gaming again, and I wanted to know if anyone could give any advice on how I could do this well.

    I've already started trying to finish my All Skink army, I'm about 60% there!

    Thanks!

    (And hi again to any of you who remember me! ^_^ )

    I kinda did the same. After a few months of not painting, I decided to paint again.
    I can't really think of any motivation, tho. I just started it up again.

    i would say a good way to do this is to start by painting something fun, then move on to the nitty gritty stuff. remember, this is supposed to be a fun hobby. so, have fun with it.

    Just ease yourself back into gently. I go through phases where I may not paint anything for months (I currently have a stack of unopening boxes for my chaos army) but then I will just sit down and find that I want to paint and will go at it like a machine because I am enjoying it. The worse thing you can do it force it on yourself.

    What I did was paint something fun and not part of the whole army (you can see it entered in the comp!), that way, I got back into the swing of it, and didn't ruin the consistency of my army.

    i think everyone has these times when they can't be bothered gaming or painting. I always get it when I'm picking through my IG codex and painting masses of troops. You just need a break once in a while.
