I don’t have a lot of time for all my hobbies. As a matter a fact I’m not a very organized person. I have a lot of things I would like to do but I can’t manage my free time very well. Many of you know this problem, right (I hope so)?
I always liked the idea of a Role Playing Games. I remember that the first time I’ve ever played in rpg was in my very youth – I was about 13 years old. And since then my love for this kind of time spending hobby never died.
While at University I meet up with a bunch of a great people that had the same love for rpg’s as me. That was a good time and sometimes I regret it’s a past now. There I become familiar with the tabletop games like Warhammer FB and Warhammer 40k. The idea of a strategic battles in a very much all genre was a big deal.
The tabletop games had one big flaw to me. It was a little pricey. And because of that I didn’t bought an army and never was a full member of the “wargaming society”. But the idea never died and I was always interested in news from developers.
I was more a skirmish fan than a big battle scene (a few gang members or bunch of heroes is still better in my mind) so I was more likely to be interested in Infinity or Malifaux then in wh40k (I like the universum of wh40k more 😮).
But three years ago I found a 15mm tabletop game called “Flames of War”. I bought a starter which included a two army sets and wasn’t as pricey as other games starters.
Since then I have a few game sessions played (not as many sessions as I would like to) and bought some new models. I found oud that I enjoy painting and modeling basing my miniatures. And I try to get more organized to have more time to play.
I find historical wargaming very good for me. Even if I don’t play as much as I would like to I can relax while modeling and painting. I get to know history better (funny thing for a history teacher) and learn to thing about strategy.
I also need to play some real skirmish. Need to!
What’s your hobby?
