I wanted to write a post about returning back to the hobby and getting back motivated to play & paint. The month prior to my expected deployment was devoted to training and preparing my affairs for my absence. It took nearly two whole months for me to really look at anything 40k related let alone go back down to the FLGS.
The first few days, I had very little interest in my expensive hobby and was finding it difficult to get back down to my FLGS. I had considered starting a new army and selling off my Eldar, as they Seemingly didn’t hold my attention like they used to anymore.
It was sort of depression like feeling. The army that I put so much commitment to was as flashy as it once was. (in mental image at least, I have a notoriously bedazzled army.)
Oddly one of things that pushed me back into playing is my natural hate of space marines. Once my blood was boiling from viewing battle reports online, I was impassioned to mete out some extra terrestrial hatred. Funnily enough the time away I think did some good, The fresh eyes effect is dramatic.
Has anyone else had any success with changing their point of view to overcome loss of interest”
Without further ado I present the newest addition to the council, up close and personal. By the way there is no straight black on this model sadly, the blue-black doesn't show too clearly.
He needs an impressive name........I was thinking.......
