I've had a bit of an epiphany, a moment of clarity recently. I was checking on the replies I've had on a few forums to my ambulance. A few people have asked what rules I'm going to use for it, and to be honest, I don't know, I never really thought about using it in a game.
Now, when I first started this blog, it was all about the game, yes I enjoyed the painting, but I was painting to get models on the tabletop. I did convert my advisers because I didn't like the GW ones but they were for the tabletop.
With my ambulance, it was converted and painted for the sake of it, it's probably going to spend the rest of it's life sitting on a shelf. With the year coming to an end, I've been thinking about next years projects, one of which will probably never really get used but is going to take up half my modelling efforts for the year.
So, I've realised that I've moved from being a gamer to being a painter and converter. I'm hoping that this isn't a permanent change, more a simple swing of the 40k pendulum and it'll swing back to the gaming side in 2010. I must admit, I've got very comfortable with painting in the evenings but I do need to get off my backside and get down the club for some games.
I can see a new year resolution coming on.
