And that's when I realized it.
It had been awhile since I hobbied.
I suddenly wanted to build some models and I suddenly wanted to roll some dice and I suddenly wanted to talk 'armies' with someone. I had built a few things a couple of weeks ago (the Heldrake I'll soon be posting about, and more Terminators) and started to work on some more this week (the Cultists are finally getting a chance). But I wanted to play.
And this is why I have to apologize for my lack of commitment to my blog recently. I forgot how good it felt to just play a damned game (and maybe come close to winning once in a while). After all, isn't that how we all got started in this hobby? So here's what I'm going to do:
I promised my game group at the comic shop that I'd start a Planetary Empires campaign (and maybe even Crusade of Fire it up) and that I'd be bringing in an army they haven't played before. I got tired of seeing Space Marines and Tau, so now I'm gonna rock the ancient Eldar. Better yet, one of my guys challenged me to a 2,000 point game. Oh yes. It is on.
And, with that, I'm excited. Two Black Legion players, 2 Tau players, a Necron player, a Space Marine/Imperial Guard player, and me. I'm really, really excited.
Prepare to see more on the blog. I'm not promising any greater frequency of posts or necessarily better ones. But I need to bring my gaming hobby to the fore for a moment. Battle reports, other player's armies, more hobby articles, oh yes... the ideas...
I just wanted to check in, apologize, and entice y'all to stay tuned. So, um... stay tuned...
