Sometimes us gamers need to take stock of things, do I need more plastic crack? Should I be playing something new? Should I have another beer? The answer to the the last one would be a resounding YES! But my point is when is enough enough?
What has brought this on you may wonder? Truth be told 40k is losing its appeal for me at the moment, even with Mr P and myself changing the rules to suit our group, it’s just not doing it for me. The background is still fantastic but I think GW should have moved the timeline on and not keep cranking out the same old Codex’s. I think that was the final straw, (haha) for me, a new Space Marine book, no, thats it, time to walk away for a while.
But the good thing is now is the perfect time to try something new, it seems everytime you go online these days there is a new game about to come out, or a new kickstarter about to begin, yes it is a good time to be a gamer.
Here at the Battlehammer you know our favorites at the moment, Guild Ball, (cannot get enough of it) Star Wars Armada, (although I am beginning to regret deciding to paint the fighter squadrons!) Imperial Assault, (which we have not had a chance to try yet!) to name but a few. And the beauty is taking a break from 40k means money for other stuff!
But where do you draw your line? If your opponent is always bringing super heavies, flyers and other monstrosities to your battles is it time to have a break? Or is it just time to throw their models off the table and then render them limb from limb, (or is that just me?) For me, as I said the fun is going out of 40k.
Well with those happy thoughts the kettle has boiled and those A-wings will not paint themselves, (unfortunately) so time for me to crack back on, and I will leave you with a silly picture of random gaming goodness!
Till next time, stay safe, and hope the outbreak never happens…
