I'm Back!

 
Well it seems that the figures are calling me back. For a few weeks now I've found myself reading others blogs and beginning to realise that I miss the wargames table. So hopefully in the New Year when the chaos that is work has finally died down I shall be breaking out the figures again and possibly even the old paint box!
Having sold all my WWII stuff I'll be devoting my time fully to my Napoleonics (which I also came extremely close to selling!) and will be gaming using the Snappy Naps rules.
I will however not be spending as much time on the hobby as I once did as I'm currently training for a couple of charity cycling events next year and I have to admit that cycling is my real passion. It may be a case of me being a 'bad weather wargamer' rather than a full time devotee to the hobby, but it will be nice to push the figures around again.

    1. This is very true Andrew. Hopefully 2014 will see me getting a few more games in and no doubt adding a few more figures to the collection.

  3. Welcome back! Too much of a good thing isn't really good at all! If I wasn't married with kids, my free time would be devoured by the hobby and my home filled with hobby debris. Although I rail at the honey-dos and stepping on legos in the dark, I am better for having more than just wargames in my life. ;)

    1. Thanks Davidou're right, too much of a good thing isn't really good at all! Wargaming / modelling / painting are my second love these days. If the weather is fine then you'll find me on the road cycling which I really enjoy. Still nice to have something to occupy me during the bad weather though!.

    1. Thanks Marzio. Hopefully I can spend the time I have in between work and cycling doing something a little more productive this coming year.

      All the best.

    1. Thanks Mike, good to be back. I know what you mean about work taking up so much time. I'm run off my feet at the moment but I know that come January I'll have more than enough time to spend gaming / painting.

  7. Welcome back, Steve. Glad you kept your Napoleonics. Like everything else in our lives, "The Hobby" (TM) has its seasons.

    1. I think you might be right. I honestl thought a few months ago that my gaming days were done with. So glad I hung on to my figures! ... That little voice at the back of my mind was saying 'you'll regret selling these Steve so don't do it!'... So glad I listened to it!
