The emperor’s beard



  • My tabletop life in a nutshell. “Wow this Infinity/X-wing/Firestorm Armada-thing is so cool! Oh nobody wants to play? Okay, I guess I’ll just paint, then.”

    • Gideon Ernesto

      Try to find, build or steal a community for Infinity, the game is awesome.

    • Dennis J. Pechavar

      We have X-wing and Armada but the other stuff isn’t around. I can’t afford to get into Armada sadly, also the wife would kill me if I added yet another hobby to the house…

  • jazeroth

    my mate buys forge world titans and never plays with them. he just like the look 🙁

    • I’d play you with mine, if you don’t mind…

  • Mike X

    This happens way too often.

  • Why wouldn’t it make any sense to collect and paint miniatures and not play at all?

    • nurglitch

      Airfix and whatnot are just models – display pieces – not gaming pieces.

      • Yea. And even if there are rules, maybe painting and enjoying the models as collectibles is more fun than playing. Why would we judge?

        But there’s a wargame specifically for Airfix models. 😛

        • nurglitch

          There’s a wargame for Lego. Ain’t neither produced by the manufacturer to move units.

          • georgelabour

            Airfix battles is actually a licensed product being made by Modiphius (mutant chronicles & infinity RPGs) for Airfix.

            So it is indeed being done to help the manufacturer move units.

          • nurglitch

            I didn’t know it was free.

  • Painjunky

    I’m the opposite. I enjoy gaming but the hobby side does not appeal to me at all.
    I’m a gamer not a frigging artist!

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Yep… that is me, i paint and collect and know everything but hardly ever play.
