Plenty of pie for everyone! Click the images to see a larger version of our Hobby Pies and share your thoughts.
A change of pace this time. I have recently decided that I am too slow at painting and gaming. This annoys me as there is nothing I enjoy more than finishing a unit, only to realise I need 3 more to be able to form 2 combat squads! So with this in mind, I have decided to do two things, the first is to demonstrate my own Hobby Pie, inspired by WD 355, page 73- which as you will know is my favourite number! You will notice that Camaraderie and Painting/ Modelling are my two favourite topics within our hobby. A recent post by Admiral Drax highlights a few points as to why good sportsmanship and a great sense of humour stop us from becoming sparring partners instead of sociable gamers. Now over time, I have noticed a few fantastic looking blogs popping up in our community, especially recently. It demonstrates just how wide our hobby spreads, and just how much support and encouragement we give to each other. If I go back to when I first created my blog about 22 months ago, I was introduced and inspired by Master Darksol, who runs a fantastic blog as I’m sure you are all aware. Of course I can’t fail to mention Ron over at From The Warp who has steadily grown his blog from a frequently visited site, to a huge resource for any gamer with access to the internet. I wish I could mention every blog out there for their fantastic and individual input in to our community!
Anyway, if you are still reading, you are the type of people who make this community the great joy that it is today, and above is my Hobby Pie as mentioned. If anyone wants to create one and send it in to me I will happily place them alongside each other so that we can all understand each other’s preferences and differences, but now for the fun bit. After a few blogs have started their own ‘Tale of Painter-esque’ approach, I have decided to do the same for anyone who is interested to help us reach our painting and gaming targets. I am hoping to begin this in August to help me expand my 1000 point Dark Angel Force in to a 2500 point army. Please let me know if you are interested in taking part in the defiantly named ‘A Tale Of Even More 40k Painters’, as so far we have myself and another blog member on board, and you can expect challenges, deadlines and time limits to make sure that we do our best to get on with our armies, as well as a bit of competition between each other with points and aims to accomplish. This may be the perfect oppurtunity to start that all new army, or expand on one.
Thanks for taking the time to read through this post, a change of pace for me as mentioned, but you can expect a few more models to be painted in the coming weeks!
