    1. Nerd factory. I want to work there…


    2. I SO want to go paint that statue… it’s begging me to go have at it with my dark angels green spray paint. This is probably in the UK somewhere huh?

      40k is the nerdiest hobby of mine. I don’t play it, just paint the cute little soldiers.

      I got a 2000 point Sisters of Battle army, a 1500 point dark angel army and I’m (slowly) working on a Dark Eldar pirate army. Plus assorted squads and characters from other armies.

      Sigh, why is it that the only guys that like my nerdiness gross me out with their corpulence or creep me out with their dorkiness? Where is an attractive healthy man who appreciates an artistic and creative hobby and isn’t a self-obsessed jerk?

      er, sorry, I won’t whine on here anymore. lame. sorry.


    3. The man you are looking for is me. Unfortunately, I’m already happily married. My wife not only supports my silly hobbies, but is thrilled when I leave her alone once a week to go push little plastic men across a table.


    4. @suicydking: Best description of Warhammer 40k ever award goes to you, my friend.


    5. @sylvanish: cause you’re looking in the wrong place. I’ve been here all along yo


    6. @tiki god: I doubt you’d pass the “creepiness” test and, considering the amount of booze you swill, your corpulence must also be called into question.


    7. I used to like painting them and building them. I liked the Tau. Then one day, while putting the final touches on a Tigershark, when I made a realisation; I had just paid 150 euro on a model slightly bigger than my hand.

      So I stopped.

      And that is all.


    8. @LukeV1-5: Yeah, that’s why I only stick to pen & paper RPG.


    9. @LukeV1-5: I nearly did the same once. Then, I thought about how much I was spending at the bar one or twice a week. The only thing I keep from that is a hangover. My models will go to my son when he’s older.

      Also, in this day & age, we spend $60 on a new XBOX game without batting an eye. Usually, you get a good week out of it, unless it has some serious multiplayer replayability. It’s a plastic disc ffs. It takes me a week to clean, modify & assemble a decent sized Games Workshop kit, and that’s before the primer even touches it. Then, I paint it and have years of gaming with it to look forward to. The kind of gaming you NEED to be social to take part in.


    10. It takes you a week to do that?

      Damn, man, I once rigged up an Ork-hijacked hammerhead, complete with battle scarring, Tau corpses and carousing Orks in 3 hours.

      Painting took 25 minutes, not including the primer time.


    11. Note: That is another reason I stopped doing it. I got a little obsessive.


    12. @sylvanish, There are a large number of only selectively dorky men out there who are into this kind of stuff. They just aren’t the ones who go to every con every year and advertise their hobby on their facebook page.

      For instance, Joe Hypothetical is a 31 year old, well adjusted, divorced business analyst for a major banking corporation. He plays softball on the company team, jogs to lose the 15 lbs he’s gained since he quit running two marathons a year like he did in his twenties, and plays trumpet with a local community jazz band. He also happens to paint Warhammer miniatures and battles at his favorite local gaming store every other weekend.

      Is this a realistic and dateable guy? Yes (since it is based on a single friend I know). Problem: unless you meet him through gaming, you’re unlikely to know beforehand that he’s a gamer (it’s not like he has it up on his Match.com profile). He’s found a lot more dates through the jazz band than through gaming.

      My advice to you is to try to find men through one of your other interests. One in (i don’t know) four of these potential dates will have a closet dorkiness. It might not be the same dorkiness as yours (maybe he’s into tabletop RPGs, or computer games, or is a Star Wars fan), but he’ll be sympathetic to your hobby–and unless you absolutely have to run armies against your significant other, being sympathetic to it is all you need.

      Myself: My girlfriend has never played a game of D&D. I didn’t meet her through a love of D&D, I met her through a love of sushi bars. When I did go out with her, though, I found a Joss Whedon obsessive who was perfectly fine with me disappearing every other Saturday to run my imaginary half-elf through graph paper dungeons.

      Good luck!

      Oh, and the picture: nice to see that they put some effort into the building. Most game producers end up in buildings that double as their warehouses.
