Taking a break from 40K!

Well the title says it all, I am officially going to be taking a break from playing 40K for awhile. What does this mean for the blog, nothing at all. I am only taking a break from playing Warhammer 40K, but I will still be painting, converting and working on terrain.

I have a few reasons for taking a break. First off I just made a killer trade and now own almost  the complete collection of the Protectorate of Menoth army for Warmachine. Secondly I am really enjoying the newly released 8th Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles, third Hordes Mark II is about to be released and I want time to learn it.

The main reason I am taking a break though is I am just worn out with 40K. I have never been a fan of 5th edition, but I have persevered and continued playing. I am just not a fan of all the fully mech'd armies. I don't blame people foe mech'ing up, 5th edition makes vehicles awesome compared to 4th. Unfortunately my armies can not compete against them and I just don't feel like spending the money to mech up my armies, especially with the GW price hikes.

Like I said, I am not quitting 40K altogether, I will still be painting and other various 40K hobby related activities. I mean I just got a great gift from my friend Brandon, he gave me his Space Wolf army that I painted for him, so there is no way I will be abandoning 40K. My plan is pretty much to take off the rest of the summer and then see how I feel about returning to playing.

-So have any of you burned out on the game before? If so what did you do?

As always, thanks for taking the time to read my blog and please feel free to drop me a comment.

I am pretty amped for you, man. You got Warmachine, Hordes, and Fantasy to keep you busy. Additionally, Templar and Sisters are not very 5th'd up, yet and you're right about it not being cost effective to keep them up to snuff.

Either way, I look forward to your look at Privateer stuff and your take on Fantasy, as well.
