A Warhammerin' We Shall Go

"Enjoy every sandwich." -Warren Zevon
Here we're at a year and a half in the new job!  Teaching was/is my dream job, but that's because I didn't know this could be a job at the time.  It really has been a perfect storm of my skill sets; classroom management, business management, professionalism, irreverence, teaching, learning, and of course the minis...those lovely GW minis.

It's funny, with all the vitriol that still persists about GW (so many backseat drivers in this hobby!) there's not a whole lot of discontent when it comes to the models.  Many start with, "Don't get me wrong, I love their models..." As for the company, never before have I seen so many armchair quarterbacks in my life!  When was the last time you did an financial exposé on the place where you buy your groceries, or your gas station?  How about the mortgage company?  No?  Yet, it's freaking forensic CSI when it comes to GW as a company.  Enjoy the hobby, or don't.  Obviously, I do.

There's a fantastic, intangible side effect to this job and that is the brotherhood.  It's a solo gig, we run our shops by ourselves, day in and day out it's just us, which is a boon if you don't like coworkers but can be a bit of a bummer if sometimes you just need a little interaction with someone in the same shoes as you.  Hence, this crazy peer network you make for yourselves with all your fellow battle brothers and sisters across the continent.  You find who you have a good connection with and you foster it, I've got buddies in Arizona, California, Canada, and wherever.  They're all just a text/email away.  Road trips are great 'cause you can always swing by someone's shop and see them in person too!  It's funny, I've got just as many (probably more) work friends in this solo gig than I ever had in ten years at FedEx or during my teaching gig.

Jeff debuted here on the blog a whopping NINE YEARS ago with his Sons of Medusa, now he's on the books as my backup!
This post is really just a puff piece I guess, but it's my blog, it's named after me, and it's about my life so you may have to suffer these from time to time.  With this third phase of my life in full swing now there's a lot of self-discovery I didn't think I had left in me.  Is it helping me paint figs faster?  Err, no, but there is a lot of good stuff going on in my head.  As with most things in life, it's all about balance.  Something I'm still learning.  I'm going to leave it at that, got some stuff to take care of, until next time...enjoy!

  1. Congratulations on finding a job you love, and :p to those who think they have some unique insight into how and why GW is the Evil Empire.

  2. The discontent definitely has started to quiet down and rightfully so as GW has been making a lot of great decisions recently. If they keep this up, the future is definitely looking really bright.
