|With each new beginning, there is an end.|
Probably one of the saddest days for me in the hobby so far.
I'm not interested in the direction that Age of Sigmar is taking the hobby and I've decided to liquidate everything that I have. For those of you that might be interested, please check the Bartertown link here. Thanks for all the good years and support, know that these funds will be poured directly into 40K, which in its current form, still has what I look for in the hobby.
For those of you that might think this is me overreacting and jumping shark, it's really not. I'm simply not interested in what Age of Sigmar has to offer. I already have enough skirmish-level games that I can play such as X-Wing and Warmahordes, and both game systems still have what I enjoy the most about the gaming aspect of playing table-top. These three things are: army design, army customization, and doing so within a points limit. On top of that, FFG and PP also cares deeply about the community, customer retention, tournaments, and competitive game balance. I mean, have you seen some of these Warscrolls? What the fuck man.
I am a gamer first and foremost, more than anything else. When I'm not gaming, I'm building models so I can get them on the table to play. This is why ever since I sold off all my painted miniatures, I never bothered to paint them again. I'm that much of a gamer that I look back at all the time I've spent painting and I want them back so I can play more. Playing games gives me fun and fulfillment. It also inspires me to write on this blog so I can share my ideas, strategies and battle reports with you guys so you can continue to enjoy the game along side me. I don't see Age of Sigmar doing that for me, so I don't want to pollute this blog with any more god damn negativity. You gotta cut the negative stuff out of your life you know?
Regardless, this is going to be my last Warhammer Fantasy post. It has been 14 years since I started WHFB and today, that all comes to an end. I'm not interested in fan-supported 8th Edition, or ETC or anything else less than official because for me, I've been down that road with BFG and Epic and I'm not willing to do that again. If Age of Sigmar ever decides to bring back the things I enjoy the most about the hobby, I'll think about joining in again. For now though, it's goodbye.
