-in which I bake a gingerbread Baneblade.

Happy holidays everyone.
I'm sorry I haven't really been here that much this past year.
Nor do I have a new santa mini to post.

But I have some dough thawing on the table, and was hoping to at least bake a little for you, like in past years.
maybe finally do that Baneblade we've talked about since 2009.

I won't go into personal details as I'm sure nobody gives two shits, but this is probably the last time I'll be doing this.
I have a job now, and I'm looking into quitting warhams entirely as soon as I get my collection sold off.
Maybe I'll still make a display piece here or there. Maybe finish the Primarchs. But really, I doubt there will be more armies for me.

I'm not saying this is it, old friends, because I think 'it' was more than six months ago.
But hey, let's have one more thread together. For old times' sake.

I'll start posting photos of the tank as soon as I get the dough into workable shape.

Aw man. I hope things are all right, Scripty.

>> No.22184492

Hm. I did wind up here and there. So far, I've gotten shit done. Keeping up that old /tg/ spirit.
I kinda feel my time here is ogre. I barely see conversion threads any more, and the few I do see are so heavily painting orientated there is nothing I can really contribute.
I intended to give out some kits today to those who joined in on the baking, but it got something of a chilly welcome so I dropped the idea.
They are, they are. As I said, I have a stable job now. On the side I've built a pen and paper RPG.
Next I hope to tackle my old goal of learning to use Unity.
Thing is, with all this, I simply have no time for models. I did make a new Lorgar (and posted it in the conversion general I saw) but that's the only model I've made since... april, I think.

>> No.22184575

There is no chilly welcome for our brother Scriptarius. Is just that League of Legends fans and various other faggots decided to infest this board and our new friends have not yet been introduced to your skill, manliness and good looks.

So how big are you making the baneblade? Tabletop scale?

>> No.22184619

That was the plan.
I just pulled the tracks and bottom from the oven and am waiting for them to cool.
There has been a marked change in the state of this board, that I do not deny, but I lets be serious. I'm just a guy who glues kits together. And bakes.

I've been at this for... 12 years now.
But in the past eight months I've only made maybe four models total. One was a commission.
I've given my time to that RPG I mentioned. I always was happiest when I was making something, and it turned from a little side project into a major time sink.
Just looking at my projects table.... I see thousands of dollars worth of potential I will never be able to make real at this rate. So I'd prefer to sell it all off, and start over on a different scale. No more armies or massive projects. Just single models, dioramas, the sort. Make this less of a collection thing and more of an art thing. Learn to paint. Sculpt too.
With the cash I could make if someone bought all my old stuff, I would have a solid basis for that.
I haven't had time for women. Work and sleep eat up 19 hours of my day. To share that last 5 with another in any meaningful way would not be possible.
From loss comes hope.
My new Russ and Lorgar are better than the ones I lost.

I must say I'm rather surprised anyone remember me here. I thought being gone for almost a year would make me an old meme of the past.

>> No.22184778

Didn't he already leave a woman for Warhammer? Or was that someone else?

>> No.22184785

Old Lorgar up top there, and here's the new one

Well, it's good to know that you are not entirely quiting it. I've seen far too many good people in my day pick up a hobby, become really good in it, and then drop it years later, discarding them like they were never part of their life.

This always makes me a bit sad. It feels like such a waste. We all move on, but what we once did is always part of us. Trying to push that away from us for various reasons, whether it be love, money, time or just another interesting thing is such a waste, I think.

A word of advice though from me: consider keeping your warhammer stuff, at least that which you are attached to; you could fill a forum with all the people who regretted it when they came back to the hobby 5/10 years later, and even if you didn',t it's a nice reminder of what you had and what you did.
