Fuck, man. How does everyone deal with hobby malaise? Sometimes things happen that make you question whether all the time and effort that goes into this hobby is worth it. I love painting and I love playing games, but the time and effort that goes into fostering a community is exhausting. I'm seriously considering just trying some new hobbies and seeing if anything sticks.
I'm sure I'll always paint as a solo activity, but the gaming aspect just seems like so much work lately. I'm really hoping that 40k gets a shake up and becomes playable again or that RuneWars comes out and provides a truly balanced play experience. Something needs to change.
