So I am back to the game once again. I haven't touched WH40K or WHFB in around 2 years now. All my stuff has been packed away nicely and neatly since around the beginning of '05. I am back into it in full force and was wondering if anyone else left for a long time, and came back, and if so, how did they get back into the game?
I was once on a long break also. When I got married in 1997 I kind of drifted away from the hobby. I had just finally finished my dark angels army for 2nd edition and then they announced 3rd edition which was completely different (in other words "dumbed down") I was really annoyed and just kind of lost interest. It was in late 2000 when I picked up again. I was listening to some of my old CDs and I had "Alice in Chains - Dirt" playing. That was the album that I used to listen to when playing the original Hero Quest way back when. Hero Quest was what got me started in this hobby. I just couldn't resist as all those old memories came back. I checked out the new editions online and purchased 3rd Ed 40k off of ebay for $35 in Nov 2000. It arrived the same day we came home from the hospital with our first child. The rest is history and I havn't slowed down since. I have learned my lesson though. I always sell off stuff on ebay before it becomes obsolete. I refuse to be stuck witha bunch of worthless rulebooks again. Funny thing is, someone actually payed a fairly good price for my old 2nd ed stuff a few years back. Can't say the same anymore with 3rd ed stuff though. As the 4th ed rules are so much the same, the 3rd ed stuff is quite worthless after it gets updated to 4th ed. Also all my old 4th/5th ed Fantasy Battle stuff is quite worthless as well, but that game hasn't changed as much as 40k. I enjoy both game systems now as well as Necromunda and own 11 different armies. Although none are finished being painted, I'm very slow with that.
