OK, I might have made a mistake

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, announcing the end of this blog may have been a bit premature. You see, after telling my lovely wife that I wasn't really into 40k anymore, so I'd stopped this blog, she promptly called me quite a offensive word and pointed out that I'd put a lot of effort into it and I should just carry on blogging, but just blog about whatever I do get into.

It sounds so simple when it comes from someone else. So gents, you could say I'm back but with a smallish addition. I'm going to be changing the focus of what I write about from 40k to my adventures in gaming with my little lad.

It's actually quite adept, you see, this blog was named after my little lad Corben, so he's the Corbania bit and I suppose I've become the Prime, not so much Optimus Prime, more like past my prime!

Anyway, so what exactly does this mean. Well, first and foremost, it means that this blog isn't going to be focused mainly on 40k anymore, I'm not sure what it's going to be focused on, that depends on what me and little man decide to get into. I do intend to keep running the parade ground list as it's something that a lot of people like. I'm also pretty sure that there's still going to be some guard involved, but right now I'm seeing Heroquest and maybe some scenery building in the way of a custom built dungeon.

In the meantime, I'm going to leave you with a picture of me and little man enjoying his very first game of Heroquest, well highly modified Heroquest and for the record, he kicked butt, killed the chaos knight and got away with the treasure!

A long time coming ....

I suppose with hindsight, I really should have typed this blog earlier. Instead, I've let time drift on until tonight. I don't know why tonight, but for some reason I decided now was the time. I didn't want to slowly slip into the night but actually say a 'see ya later guys'.

You see, I've kinda fallen out of love with 40k. There's actually a whole host of reasons why, ranging from the sheer amount of resources in time, money and space it takes to play 40k, to how the game has changed from the 40k I fell in love with all those years ago, to the ever increasing commercialisation of the game. I don't want to sound like I'm bitching as I'm not, 40k has given me years of great fun and it's something that I'm very grateful for.

I'd also like to thank all of you for supporting me through the years as I've explored the 40k hobby, I've really felt like I've belonged to a community and that's something that I'm also very grateful for. So, thanks guys, I really mean it, you've be great. I hope that you all continue to enjoy the hobby as much as I have and keep blogging guys, there's many more like me who just love seeing what you do with the world of 40k.

Finally, I should say, I'm not leaving the hobby, I'm just changing my focus to something that isn't so demanding. I'm not going to say that I'll never come back to 40k, as little man grows up, who knows if the Corbanian 1st will once again grace the battlefield under the command of a young general and if so, this blog might come back to life.

In the meantime, any of you who fancy following me on my new adventures into dungeon delving can follow my new blog on HeroQuest here ....

So gents, thanks for all your support, your inspiration, the laughs and so much more.

See you on the flip side.
