Post No.1 or "Looking up at the hobby from the flat of my back"

So here we go. I am finally joining the leagues of the 40K bloggers. I felt it was time to emulate many, many other people before me and start blogging about this hobby of ours, because why not? I'm opinionated, I'm passionate. I can occasionally string together an articulate (read: legible) sentence. In my boundless intellect and sense of humour I have chosen the name Krak Addict, which is actually close to being offensive unless you know 40K, so let's hope it doesn't get me into any trouble.

It's a bit of a funny time for me and 40K at the moment. In hobby terms, things are great; my painting seems to be constantly improving, I am getting more and more adventurous with magnets, I may even convert something in the near future. Happy days. But in gaming terms, I really am looking up at the hobby from the flat of my back. I am in the most rutty of ruts. I cannot seem to pull off a win or even a convincing draw at the moment and it is getting more than a little frustrating. The guys I play regularly are constantly on the end of moaning and self pity when I get tabled yet again. I'm not sure if it's my list writing ability, my ability to use the lists I write or just that I have particularly terrible choice in armies, but things just ain't right in my gaming world. No doubt people will have an opinion for me. Answers on a postcard.

Either way, I am starting this blog as somewhat of a hobby therapy session. I figured that if I can write down what I am doing, and share it with the internetwebosphere, not only will I be able to document my failings for the world to mock, but also I may get some nice people who can help me help myself. That and I crave attention.

So that's my first post. If you are having a similarly torrid time throwing dice (or you just want to poke me with word stick and throw insult stones) please feel free to comment below!
