Default What do your spouses/girl/boyfriends think of your warhammer hobby?

I'd like to ask everyone that question, because my girlfriend really doesn't like my 40k hobby.
She thinks my Nids are scary and way too expensive and doesn't see the point in it. Before she thought that this is only a childs game, but now she understands it better - but still doesn't like it.

I of course disagree with her, but do you have the same situation?

Well my girlfriend's like a Ferrari - I don't have one. My friends are pretty cool with it, and most chicks either think it's quirky and a bit weird or think it's pretty cool that I have the dedication/ability to paint 100 Ork Boyz in a fortnight.

Yeah, my girlfriend has no interest in it herself, but she does think it's pretty cool.

My girlfriend wouldn't join the hobby, but If I wanted to I could get her into the Black Library books.

she used to play it and gave me her old collection of ultramarines and Dark Eldar from an old starter kit. she loves the background lore but the staff wasnt exactly great back then left a terrible impression on her so she decided to quit the hobby.

Same as this. My girlfriend thinks its a cool hobby and she is very interested in when I paint them. She isn't remotely interested in the game however xD

even tough a girl fond with nurgle could be good for some hard core stuff. enough with my madness. btw i've been pretty lucky with my relationships. another ex of mine was a better painter than me and just once i found utter disappointment for my plastic crack addiction.
