Hey guys, Long time no see for me on this forum! I am sad to say that when AoS came out, I found my interest in the gaming side of my Lizardmen force draining, and as a result my interest in the collecting and painting of my lizzies also declined (my painting was barely in existence at this point, although I did paint one test skink). Due to this, my activity on the forum slowly tapered off to the point where until about a week ago, I hadn't visited in probably a little over a year, and even then I was only briefly checking up on things! My collecting of the mini's stopped, and my assembly line came to a sorrowful halt. I took up 40k more at about this time (it was my secondary game before; I only had a small collection -- WFB 8th was my main game), and started a Skitarii/Adeptus Mechanicus army which has become quite large now! I later expanded upon my original 40k army, a small force of necrons I'd had for ages, which I felt were lacking in variety gameplay-wise in comparison to Ad Mech at the time I started them (plus Ad Mech look awesome! ). I tried to play AoS several times across this period of time, and AoS skirmish when it came out, but its rules have never been much to my tastes. They have grown on me significantly over time though, as I was quite disappointed to see what had become of the game I loved. As of right now, I don't think that my interest in fantasy and my beautiful lizzies will ever be as great as it was before the fall of 8th Edition. Having said that, my lizzies even now still hold a special place on my shelf, and I will look out for good deals on them periodically on Ebay and the like, which brings me closer to my point: Recently, I purchased some classic Lizardmen mini's off of Ebay for quite the steal! I found a box of Tichi-Huichi's Raiders opened but complete for only $25, along with two groups of 10x metal skinks with javelins and command group for $12 each! Everything unpainted and undamaged, minimal shipping costs. They arrived safely the other day, and looking at them I find myself left with an itch for 8th edition that I have not felt for a long time and can no longer satisfy, as I now know nothing of anyone who plays in my area. I'd like to get more involved in Aos, hopefully play 8th Edtion again with people if possible, or maybe try 9th Age if that's more popular, although I always thought it lacked a certain flavor and character that 8th held. I have no knowledge of Kings of War, but perhaps that would be worth a look as well. I plan on looking around and trying to find people interested in 8th Ed or 9th Age near me soon, but I thought I'd check up on things here after all this time to see general interest levels in these games. So tell me, which game systems do you use your lizzies for? Which is your favored system and why? In your opinion, how do 8th Ed and 9th Age stack up against each other? Do you have any advice which can help to relieve me of this itch?!?
