If you could only do one for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

or

Paint/convert mini's

Paint/Convert, But I Think Either You Did Would Get Boring After A While. So Wouldnt Want To Do For Rest of Life But Its A Good Hobby

That's like asking if you'd prefer a kick in the face or the bollards Suspect

Before I appeared on TBMF, painting/converting minis was my only hobby - I didn't believe that I can build/paint terrain so good. But here I had to change my mind, you all have motivated me to build new Mordheim city... so now I can't choose Wink

I asked because if i had a choice it would be Terrain..hands down. I'd much rather spend hours upon hours creating a detailed section of mordheim, that i could parade my beginner level quality warband through. It's obviously a personal thing for all. I was just curious to see if the numbers were overwhelming for one or the other.

For me, it's definitely painting and converting, as I can bear playing in makeshift surroundings with my cool miniatures but could not enjoy moving little stones with faces painted on around my super awesome scenery Smile

lol! What did we EVER do without our Swedes?

Back on topic: while I couldn't imagine [AND I have a VIVID imagination; ask any female who knows moi Suspect ] doing one without the other, I enjoy doing the terrain, particularly the buildings, more than the minis. I think it has to do with creating the Beasties TOTALLY from scratch. AND I'll take the shot to the kisser too. Suspect

well there is a dead on statement i can (ab)use for my cause!

I love converting/painting/modeling, but not to play with actually... then it just takes too long! I'd rather make dioramas!

Thats why i love my pocket mordheim project so much, it gives me enough pleasure on painting them fella's and producing lot's of playable mini's. on the other hand i havent made much scenery yet lol! BUT the plans are made for some fantastic (i hope) playable and very portable scenery. which is the challenge itself.

soo bottom line is, i like the hobby, love to play, but it has to be a bit balanced between eons and eons of crafting and enjoying the game itself.
