Warhammer as a whole

Today i wont be featuring anything. Same as tht of my other website.
Instead i shall be talking about Warhammer as a whole. Well, not too long ago, there have been a talk on the issue of Warhammer as a struggling hobby. In fact it is already becoming like what my military vollection is, an adult's hobby. The kids and teens are to preoccupied wif their Cpou games and other activities (Me included) There have been a big tak and arguments on the future of Warhammer in Singapore and also how it has become. There was a talk of a revival and plans of it. But then, all of a sudden the forum resume to its quiet status as it has become another all talk no action result.

Life is busy for many, and it is hard to dedicate time. Even for myself personally, i hardly even have time to play computer games. The pace of life is getting faster. In any case, i feel that warhammer as a whole is also dropping in popularity.

How is one suppose to attract the Kids and teens when the company who made this game is constanly jacking up the prices. Regardless of the Economic objective of the Company, they must realise that such an act is killing the hobby and preventing new enthusiast to join. On top of tht, they might discourage the passion and fun of the game to be as vivid as before and so i can see a dangerous path of this hobby becoming more unique. Not that i care whether it becomes less popular cos im already into it for the figures. But it will ruin the game and the purpose of warhammer as a whole.

So all in all, while i still feature my figures, i am relatively sad that it is becoming a fading hobby due to the lack of time and passion (cant be help) and the price increase and ill-management to revived the passion of the game and the painting of the figures.

Fixing and Painitng of Warhamer figures, incalcate patiences and determination, but obviously with such discouraging factor, ppl wud rather play something else and also it isnt a very good factor if u do not inspore the younger ones to paint the figure t make it his or her own. and to show tht hardwork pays off!

In any case, this is my 2 cents worth, till a better warhammer time.

JQ signing off ;)
