Seems dead around here... Sound off lurkers!
« on: November 10, 2013, 09:08:45 AM »
I know I still stop by once or twice a week but things seem real dead here lately. Has life taken everybody's playtime?

Sound off and let me know you're still here. Maybe you'll inspire me to get some more stuff done myself.

Action begets action!  8)

Cheers!

Yeah I have no playtime left.  Mostly because of lack of funds.  I've been looking for a job for 6 months and no luck.

Hi All,

This is my fault. After my Father passed, we had a lot of issues with my Mother's health. She passed in January 2012. Soon after that, my father-in-law was diagnosed with Cancer. He stayed with us as his health declined. He passed in January 2013. With 3 homes worth of stuff stored in every nook and cranny, I've lacked the time, space or motivation to build or paint anything. I have been digging my way out and have every intention of getting back to the old me  ;D

Some one come over and kick me in the ass.

Rob

There's no blame around here Rob! :) I've been slack as heck myself. I did hardly anything in my 18 months of retirement and now that I'm working again, even less. I did however, just find the full back-up of all my old stuff, so there is hope that something will rise form the ashes.

I've been meaning to try and plan a big tournament weekend at my place but picking the right time just hasn't happened. Would invite all of you guys certainly and anyone over at the realms as well.

Just want to try and simulate some conversations... we have certainly been slow here.

Hope your doing better with the family. You have my wishes for sure.

Cheers!

Yup, If he'd of stayed... we'd all be meeting up for some MKD a couple of times a year.  8)

Hey now  :-[

I don't even play MKD anymore, I tried to get into Marvel Hero Clix and couldn't get into that either.  I think I'm starting to become a snob on the quality of the figures.  I love the entire dial concept, but I don't like the figures or the price of them.

I have not even played much 40k lately.  Although my eldest daughter is playing Orks now at the age of 12 and she is four for four on wins at the local GW shop.

I've been playing a lot of GURPS lately and wishing I could find a damn job in this country so I could afford some miniatures to use during the game.  That and I don't have the cash to get the equipment needed to get back into Hurst Arts.

AND because the stupid coalition government raised the tuition across the board so with the exchange rate I cant afford to finish my degree in Geology.  So there is another few years that I've waisted.

I'm probably three steps away from a mid life crisis.

 :-[ How can you 'not like the prices' and still buy GW stuff.... the most overpriced stuff on the market. I was once a GW fanboy and probably have over 10,000 pieces of their stuff... but you could not twist my arm enough to start with them again. No painting and middle of the road pricing, I'll take any day.... especially in my old age, with no time , patience or eyesight left to paint with.

Too much time in the UK if you ask me.

And not playing MKD.  :(  Tsk, tsk, tsk!  I'm not playing much mind you, but I'm still playing.

Still love ya anyway mate!

Cheers,

True but when I mean the price of the figures for MKD and Marvel Hero Clix I don't want to spend $20 on a 'rare' figure that I want when the sculpt looks like crap.  Plus I'm starting to get tired of the random packs because I have no one to trade with.  I'd rather purchase a box of Avengers and a box of Hydra Agents, or something like that.

And yes I'm upset about the pricing of GW.  It was good back in 2009 because they dropped their prices but now there seems to be like a 5-10% increase every year.
