Trying to Revive the Hobby Mojo....."CLEAR! - ZAPPP"!

Well hello again!

First of all i want to congratulate all those who've stuck around to see me post absolutely nothing over the last few months!! Since the break up from Mrs GunGrave and the house move, i just haven't found the inspiration in me to pick up a paint brush. That was last done back in March!! Some action  is needed here methinks.....

So - my first attempt was to get some models on the table and try and get inspired that way. I even put some of my fav' Wolves models on there as well for motivation!

But that didn't work! Next up, i bought a Doom/Night Scythe for the oh-so-near-completed 'Crons:

(really liked the kit, another great reason why GW should keep with the plastic!)

That sorta worked! I felt a slight tingling of inspiration, but then it faded again....

The latest effort comes in the form of the new 40K 6th Ed'! I couldn't leave that on the shelf, no matter how uninspired i was!

Overall, I'm really pleased with the new rules set, especially with regards to terrain. As regular readers of the blog well know, i love terrain, and I'm pleased that its got a bigger/more active part to play now.

The new wound allocation rules are interesting, but make a bit of sense. I'm a bit confused about the Flier rules, but nothing a bit more reading wont fix! I'm looking forward to play testing them, but with no gaming club in my town, I'm struggling to find an opportunity. However, I've applied for a new job in Worcester which will see me move there in October if successful. Theres bound to be a GW and local gaming club there which will be sure to breath a bit of life back into the hobby for me!

So that's where i am at the moment. I'm hoping the hobby mojo will return soon, and the blogposts on my blogroll are really helping! In the meantime....

Time for a crappy Nazi-Zombie movie!! Nothing beats a Nazi-Zombie movie!

The GunGrave


  1. I find myself doing much the same when seeking inspiration - take a unit off the shelf, put it on the painting table, stare at it, put it back on the shelf, repeat as necessary.

    The glass of wine and zombie movie usually helps me too. Hah!

  2. Keep at it, it'll come back I'm sure. If you are ever around Oxford and looking for a game, let me know, I'd be happy to play a fellow blogger.

  3. Hey guys!

    Yeah im sure it will - a few more bottles of red and some more Nazi Zombie movies and i'll be right back in the game!

    Moving away from my gaming club didnt help either. Im hoping to find another club in Worcester which'll help me get back on track!

    Dam, i've still got that Apoc' Terrain piece to finish as well!

  4. Hope the Mojo gets in the groove with the new rules, maybe another shack-up will help things along, so good luck on the job front in Worcs!

  5. Good luck in getting your mojo relit. I sometimes find that changing to a different army project helps (IG instead of Orkz, etc). Failing that, just forcing myself to sit down and get started often does the trick. Once I get a bit of momentum, it goes a lot easier.
