Well - I have finally come to the decision that I'm leaving the hobby.
I'm never going to get my minis painted and based, there are no opponents in the area who want to game historicals (only sci-fi and fantasy), the gaming room is never going to get finished and to top it all off - SWMBO threw a royal hissy-fit when I mentioned buying more ECW minis.
It's to the point the house and yard are taking up way too much time, energy and money to fix and the same goes for the Land Rover. So - something has to give and the logical 'something' is wargaming.
That being said, I'm giving everything away - first come first serve - with a few items going to specific people on this list. You will be responsible for postage. I'm keeping all the books and such but all the minis are going bye-bye.
So, in the grand exit style of Biggus Dickus - "So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, à Bientôt, Goodbye".
“conscribe te militem in legionibus. pervagare orbem terrarium. inveni terras externas. cognosce miros peregrines. eviscera eos” ̴ “Join the legions, see the world, travel to foreign parts, meet interesting and exotic people, and disembowel them.”
Correus - I've been a wargamer for 53+ years & I made that mistake many years ago. I ended up resenting SWMBO as she stole more & more of my life & happiness. Perhaps you can pare things down in compromise, but don't give up the hobby entirely or you may find it building resentments where there shouldn't be. Find a balance.
I have to agree with both Mike and Sven here. My wife made me give up the hobby a number of years ago and actually threw away a lot of my stuff. We almost divorced at that point! However, I am rebuilding, but it is hard work. Enjoyable, but hard and slow.
Surely, there is no need to cut all ties? There's the Friday Night thread, or should that be the Weekend thread? It's sad that people are leaving regardless of the reason
I take it that this means you won't me meeting us all at Salute, then? That is sad too!
I agree completely Correus. Not like these other bloomin whingers. Commit totaly to giving up the hobby. My address is....... Seriously, just stop for a year. Now you have bought the figures squirrel them away until the house and the Landy are finished. By then GW will be so expensive your frinds will have converted to historicals
