Uh oh.

I've lost my interest in Eldar and 40k in general.

It's true. The thing that we all thought would never have happened has happened.

Help?

Please, say it ain't so!

You don't know me, but I've been following your blog for quite some time now. You inspired me to start an Eldar Strike Force, and have kept me entertained with all your army progress and your dedication to the hobby. I hope you aren't done for good, and that the new Codex will renew your desire for the Eldar. Regardless of the outcome of your current apathetic state, I want to thank you for the wealth of information and pictures and enjoyment I have received from your posts. --Jordan

Many people go through a phase of Warahmmer-downtime. They want nothing to do with the models, the game, or any of the discussions. They go away and enjoy other things for months, even years in some cases. Some never come back.

But most do. The important thing is not to force yourself. If you don't want to play and paint, don't. We'll always be there if you want to come back, and we'll still be there if you don't. :)

For real? With all the cool new stuff?
I understand taking a break for real world concerns. But, other than prices, this seems to be a return to the Golden Age for Eldar. Maybe you just need a change of pace.

Noooo!! I created a blogger account just so I could comment on this. Look, I can understand. You try to help people out and tell them some rumors and they pump you for more and more and more. Then they don't like what you found or bettr yet they completely ignore what you said.

Screw them.

Break away from the molds and start working on your own craftworld...or craftship. Figure out how you'll use harlequin rules to represent pirates. Read the "The who loves Orks" thread on Warseer, the thread you started. Its near to 3000 posts last time I checked. I tried playing USF just to prove that it could be more than a shooty army.

Ok enough of that, if you need to take a break, go ahead, but make it a clean break. Get away from the message boards, rumour discussions and GW store. Enjoy some of the other things life has to offer, and if the hobby calls you back, great. If not, pack the figures for storage and take a little bit longer break. Either way, I give you the same advice as before the gamesday, "Have Fun"

Wait. Are you fooling us?
I just saw you post on WarSeer...

I like talkin' with my friends. I just don't have the inclination to play or paint.

Like quint'aan said, it's most likely a phase.

Let it go, don't fight it, but don't sell all your stuff just yet!
In afew months (I reckon after christmas), you'll start feeling that tingle again. You'll catch a glimpse of some of your models gathering dust and just like that, it'll be back.

It works like that for many things in life, especially after you invest yourself a lot into something (let's face it, this year with your mega-battle project, then the Forge Primus campaign, you've dedicated a lot of your free time to 40k). It's happened to me for several of my hobbies.

Go have fun and enjoy other things, then you'll naturally come back.

yeah, don't sell your stuff. you'll come back to it. it is better to take a break every so often any way to maintain real life perspective.

Another Eldar General Defeated! All Hail the Emperor!

But seriously big C, like Big Q said, alot of us are going through some down time. Summer has that effect on gamers. We start to question all of the hours spent under artificial light. I've had the same white primer Tactical squad sitting on my shelf, screaming to be painted for 2 months now. I look back at it and say "No red paint for you!"

Take your break, you deserve it, puting up with all of us... but remember, that new codex is coming out...

FYI, I'm thinking of starting a mini-mordheim-campaign, if you have any interest in small fantasy style skirmish games....

C'mon Corey! Get back in it! You are the 'Aristocrat' of all Eldar players!

OhOne said...

Hmm. A little time with another game system might freshen things up a bit. Have you tried FoW?

You'll feel better after you've crushed some Xenos with your new Black Templars!!!!
