Hey guys, just thought I'd pop my head in to comment.
As with Cav, my life has been insanely busy, which necessitated me stepping back considerably. I'm attending a 6 month long course at the moment, which allows precious little time to myself. On top of that, I'm going through the early stages of divorce proceedings whilst selling a house and trying to find somewhere to live in my future place of employment; as Iri said 'life stuff'...but it really has taken me out of the hobby loop for several months.
I still pop my head in occasionally to check on various projects and things and it pleases me no end when I see some of the newer veterans really producing high level content and stoking the creative fires.
So yeah, forums wax and wane. Some people stay throughout, while others move on. The key is that those that remain are active, because activity inspires activity. Raise a debate, tell people about your fan fiction, show off that cool piece of terrain or new painted unit, or just let us know how well you curb-stomped someone at the weekend.
I will come back at some stage, when life evens itself out for me...just consider me to be like Lion El'Jonson. I'm healing up and getting ready and when I'm needed I'll paint 3 models in 6 months and take a billion photos of them.
Take it easy fellas.
Also, if Cav really is back...that may stoke my completive fires enough to paint some stuff...no pressure Cav
