Well I'm focusing on the Horus Heresy atm, that's getting me more excited than 40k or Fantasy. I do perhaps want a new 40k army, something alien I can do for Armies on Parade, but atm I'm struggling to decide what though.

I usually cut down at this time of year anyway as time restraints and work kicks in and poor light reduces painting time but even if I didn't the cost of the hobby means I have reduced the amount of hobby stuff I get drastically.
While the bombardment of new mini's is nice I don't play 6th often as I don't really like it so gaming time is reduced too.

I could've sworn it was later than that. But I've had lots of beer since then so I could well be wrong.....

Yup, 2001 with my old vanilla marines. Next time I gamed regularly was Warmachine from 2006 onwards.

I did dabble with 6mm Napoleonics but the rulebook forced me into a coma.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

I'm not sure it can be attributed to 'fatigue'.

What we have going on here is GW's long overdue hauling of ass to bring everything up to date (and bring out some stupid Space Marine units in the process).

So, it's not so much that we are bored of 40k, it's just we've all waited so long for this sort of over-haul to happen, we're just taking up positions of 'about time' rather than those of excitement.

Simple fact of the matter is that over the last decade, GW has allowed certain parts of the 40k universe to rush ahead. The Rulebooks we've had have all had blatant flaw, they pushed the meta-game from being fairly open to incredibly streamlined (Rhino+Melta=win). Now, since they have brought out a new aspect of the game (Flyers), it's give them a platform to make some other changes.

So, as much as I am enjoying the serious put-out rate of the aging strumpet that is GW... IMO, they owe it to us for being, for the most part, loyal and returning customers - especially those of us who played throughout the 90s and before.

I'm not going to proof-read this post... so it could be a load of crap in some peoples eyes!

For me it's not fatigue, more overload and not that it's a bad thing.

It's overload for men because, well first up I'm a slow painter, I'm not a gold painter at all, and paint my models one at a time because even though I'm not a good painter, if I paint them to a point I'm happy with then I feel better.

But for me, it's overload simply because of my armies and how they have fallen in the release schedule. I collect DE, Nidzilla, Iron Hands and Sisters. For the most part my DE and Sisters are fine and done. But with all the Iron Hands stuff: New codex, new models, new FW Iron Hands models, Massacre. New Dark Elf stuff for me to mix into my Dark Eldar, with Tyranids up next. I just don't have enough money to buy everything that's come out and will by coming out. So I'm gaming less, but painting and assembling more. That's all.

My local GW will be starting a campaign in a few weeks so it be taking that up to get me gaming. So for me it's not fatigue just overload and lack of money.

I'm finding now i have more money to buy all the shiny things but i cant get into the game anymore, sure i like the modeling side of things but the game itself just seems abit meh to me now.
I still lurk the forums and touch the plastic crack now and then but unless something really wow's me my minis will stay in the box in a cupboard collecting dust for the foreseeable future

I have to say I am enjoying the revitalized feel to the game. Since flyers were introduced it makes for much more entertaining games. The speed of codex release, although much faster than previously produced, will mean that everybody will have a similar power level, depending on your force selection. I have managed to keep up with buying the codexes so far and intend to get each one as they are released.

Now game wise I play around 2 times a month, or more if I am going to a tournament. I always have at least one army project on the go and try to find time for painting or building. I would play more at home if revilo44 played more, but he generally finds other stuff to do instead of playing his old man

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I remember the shares in Alliance Wine went up considerably during that period

And yeah, as a quick note, I totally failed this. Just bought 20 Plaguebearers, 1 Herald of Nurgle and a CSM Terminator Lord.

I suck
