Incase you can't tell by my lack of posting any kind of content on here, I think I've effectively moved away from the hobby. I haven't gamed in close 6 months, and haven't purchased anything gaming related since even before then.
Along the way of a bunch of "real life stuff" happening, I realized just how truly, deeply, unhappy I was. I was using the hobby as an escape from reality, but that reality, ended up up almost making things worse in a way. I ended up discovering the Minimalist lifestyle, and it made sense to me to see, that I was trying to fill a hole in my heart with "stuff", and in the case, it was gaming. We've all seen it, the person that keeps buying, buying, buying.... but why? I realized that I WAS that person. (Even if I always painted my all my models) It was compulsive.

My 2nd game of 40k 8th edition was a giant 4-player free for all, and while I'm normally not a fan of multiplayer matches, as having never played a GOOD one in all my years of gaming, I can happily say this was probably the first enjoyable one I've ever participated in!
4 players. 4 races. Lots of carnage! The forces were the Aeldari (me), Astra Militarum, Tyranids, and The Black Legion, all in a modified 1250 pt Carnage scenario. Note: this isn't really a play-by-play, rather, more of a highlight of the overall match.

Continuing the tradition of previous years, I like look back at the end/start of a year and sort of see "how I did" as a geek and a gamer. Last year was a bit of a rough one, and while 2017 still had some rough patches, I think it ended on a high note. If you like to read long lists, with a bit of ranting, this post is for you...
Strap in, it's a long one...
