You've got some serious miniature painting skills. I used to play Warhammer, 40k, and Mordheim way back when, but I couldn't paint at all. They all looked horrible, even when I really tried. Was great fun though.
I have a friend who will occasionally peruse the forums of a game he's interested in. But he isn't all that interested in the gaming community as a whole. That's about as close to my level of interest as any of my friends / family get.
