Default Have we got 40k fatigue?

Does anyone else feel they are getting overloaded with the hobby at the moment? G.W and F.W and B.L are churning out product which is a good thing but I'm feeling a little left behind, I have not even got 6th ed rules yet! Now real life is a big factor but all the new shiney to choose from and my huge sprue pile that needs painted makes the hobby to me a little daunting at the moment, post count is down on the forum and I'm wondering is there a bit 40k burnout amongst the community at the moment, not just on the forum but actual hobby and gaming are people getting many games in?

Your thoughts please.

Seems like a good enough theory.

Personally, I'm currently coiled like a spring to get to work on some things but a lack of decent amounts of "sit down" time are preventing me from doing so.

It's all going a bit fast for me too. I have so many army ideas whenever a codex is released that at the moment I have like 5 or 6 concepts in mind using the new books but can't decide what to do but I see this as a positive thing actually as anything that allows players more choice is a good thing.

All these codices/codexes/whatever-the-plural-is are doing a number on my wallet though

I know how you feel. It seems that there is so much out there that is new and interesting but looking at what is currently on (and under) our playroom work table, we are currently holding off temptation and attempting to work out a plan to deal with what we currently have! And by we, I mean the daughter and myself "splitting" tasks on the painting front! Looks like we'll be busy till at least X'mas at the rate we are going at the moment!!!

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!

I have been trying to slow down anyway. I went through a stage where I had almost 600 infantry in varying states of incompleteness. I have dealt with most of that over the last few years and am down to about 9 marines, 10 necrons, 18 demonettes,6 seekers, 5 bikes and 5 oblits to complete. I have finished all my big projects and have 2 more coming, a peturabo conversion and thunderbolt conversion. I am purposefully taking it slow and trying to avoid the new developments. I never want that much unpainted grey on my desk again.

A little bit. I'm actually going into fantasy a bit (Wood Elves FTW!) because of how crazy everything is. I'll still play (even expanding my IG) but until either theirs or the BA codex comes out, I'm going to be slowing down a great deal with 40k.

If you go down to the woods today, be wary

I can't say I'm overwhelmed with GW products. I have a couple of units and vehicles to paint. I'm mostly buying things I look forward to painting when I have free time again.

I think GW is finally producing products as fast as the gamers said they wanted them.

Seems ironic to be overwhelmed when players have been calling for this rate of production for years.

I feel somewhat left behind by forge world, but that's only because I can't justify the expense of the books, minis, and shipping. But they are awesome.

I'm the opposite at the moment - usually i like to do one project at a time but i currently have about 6 on the go.

I've started playing games again though, so that's the main reason. Modelling and painting are still my first love, but a fun game with some mates now and again certainly spurs me on.
