I sometimes play more formally but for the most part I'm playing smaller games with friends. in a very relaxed fashion - with 4th edition rules and codexes. Yeah, that bad
Other than that, Dropzone Commander, Infinity, Herands of Ruin:Kill Team and Dust are just more worth my free time - and that's another consideration too. Study, work, relationships. Within and without the hobby, things are just coming before GW's racy updates.
That being said, I keep an eye open. I'll download the pirated new books, I'll have a gander at the new models and what's happening with the End Times stuff is really exciting. Learning and playing on a regular basis, however, is lost on me. And it's not support of the looming company either - those who still consume what they're putting out don't mind not supporting them either with torrents being the new book store and pirate casters/3rd paties being the new store shelves, if I had a problem with supporting the company while still enjoying their content I would do it.
I don't know why I'm being pushed away. Forgeworld's Heresy stuff has a loit of people hooked. In game and story, it's just fucking funner. I'm not enjoying the newer structure of 40K. I don't when I fell out of love with it exactly but it's been a developing strain. The thing is the things that we've been doing a long time, we;ve been doing informally for a long time. Break the force-org/ally for a narrative? Sure! But that was special. Now 40k seems, I don't know, messy? I mean, yeah, the codexes are being streamlined to the point of flavourless but there's so many datsltes and formations tht re now seeming standaard in list building that, well, nah. Yeah, me and friends have messed with the game, but it had a solid foundation. Now we're not really messing based on stuff. I don't know, it's not specil anymore.
There we go, unfocused rambling. I guess all in all it's complicated.
