What if your Warhammer Journey was to begin all over again?

 Earlier this week I proposed an interesting thought experiment on my Twitter and it created some fun discussion.  That question was “We all associate with one army or another (ex: myself and Daughters of Khaine). If you had to pick a different army and could do your hobby journey all over again which would you prefer to be associated?”.  Some responses were very off the wall while others were still in line with what that individual enjoyed as far as army lore or aesthetics.  In my post today I want to explore my answer and try to extrapolate what my Sylvaneth would look like today if that was the army I decided to run as my main army and essentially use as a brand on myself.

Upgrading the Hobby and Gym Space!

 Over the past year, I finally began the process of taking back my overcrowded basement.  While half of it was carved out as my personal hobby space it was still chocked full of old junk in need of tossing and donating.  I craved a space for not only wargaming but also for working out and I am finally able to say I now have that space!  After many months of sorting and cleaning and moving what I am calling "The Anvil of Apotheosis" is now ready to go.  Wargaming and Lifting shall begin in great quantities!

Get Rid of Your Backlog Now!

 The backlog, the pile of shame, the mountain of grey plastic.  There are many names for it, but we all know what I am talking about here.  We have or have had a hobby backlog in our lives as we get over-ambitious about our projects, having a strong FOMO over that new release, and many other reasons to be sure.  Having more models unopened than you might ever get to paint or play with is nothing to be proud of in my book nor is it passion.  It is a lack of discipline and requires a change in our thought process as a community.  Regardless of how your backlog came to be and how you feel about them, I am here to tell you today that you need to get rid of it one way or another.  Doing so is a favor to yourself and one that will give you more enjoyment from this hobby we all love.
