I build/paint/etc as a catharsis, just to get away from other stresses in life, so I don't see it as wasted $$$
the fact I can go out and use them for fun afterwards is just a bonus really at the end of it, but I can't really put a price on how much it helps with stress/depression issues, better than paying a shrink!

Yeah, good points all, I was just thinking about models, but yeah, everything else adds up pretty fast!! Sounds like you've got an awesome setup :+1:

I've been using painting as a decent anxiety coping mechanism for a few months now...surprisingly good for it. Though it's now basically my form of a "fidgit cube" at work- been getting some small models and bases done, heh

@WindstormSCR you hit the nail right on the head -- wargaming is not just my hobby, it's my therapy
The main reason I got into 40K is because oh-so-many years ago, being a network administrator, I determined that my days consisted of waking up, getting on a computer and working on more computers. Then after work, I'd play some video games and/or watch things on a home theater system...which was more computers. It came down to all my work and my play involved something electronic. So I decided I needed a completely analog hobby -- one with no computer required.
Now yes I use computers to make my hobby easier/more fun
But every model I play with I have built and painted with my own hands -- it's a physical object in realspace
And when I'm in the painting groove the stress of the rest of my world just melts away
And while I do play competitively I don't find that adds stress to it -- in many ways having a big ol' GT to look forward too gives me an eager anticipation to get things done LOL

Case in point the HH event I have tomorrow is why I powered through getting all those dreads painted

@alphalas looks like that fix for FotA did deploy, even though the promotion bot failed to notify as such on social media.
I am still unclear what broke, but it seems that somewhere in the minor versions, BS forgot how to count instances of non-Primary categories for the purpose of satisfying Force level constraints. Needless to say, I was displeased to discover this.

@CrusherJoe i found the same, thanks for putting in words
i work digitally all day, all my hobbies were digital and the pure analog (with exceptions like BS and PDFs of course) is refreshing
