Well other than collecting miniatures that I pretend I’m going to paint(!) I also play D&D. I am fairly regular at our local board game cafe, my partner and I hold cinema cards so we see almost every new release- regardless of quality- and I find most of my free time taken up by volunteering for a local cat charity as a fundraiser, foster liaison and general catsbody!

I do like to cook and read and some other stuff, but I don't think I do them regularly and/or good enough to count as an actual hobby.

One presumes that the blank is something to do with miniatures, but that covers a lot of territory. ::D: Me, I paint miniatures for war games (skirmish or mass battle, historical or fantasy, it's all good--not much SF, though) and use miniatures in my all-too-rare roleplaying games.  Some of the work I see here on competition/display miniatures looks like another hobby...::D:

 

Besides wargaming with miniatures, I do a lot of broader analog gaming (board games, RPGs, some cards), ballroom dancing, ice dance, and bicycling (rather less than I'd like).  I have New Year's Resolutions related to all three of this physical hobbies.  There's a much longer list of things I used to do, or at least things I haven't done lately. ::P:  

 

Reading and cooking aren't hobbies, just part of living, like breathing...

Sleeping. It also counts as my sole participation sport.

All the painting, modeling, sculpting, & terrain building I don't consider a hobby. It's my life's work.

  • D&D, kinda perma-DM, so lots of work
  • WoW, Guild/Raidleading, so again, lots of work (even though less than it used to be, we're a more casual guild now)
  • baking/cooking, but especially baking. I've conquered the dessert niche in a family of people who all love to cook.
  • my cats, and making food for them
  • mermaiding (swimming with a monofin and costume tail)

So besides the mini addiction hobby, I play DnD weekly and other RPGs on occasion.  I read fantasy and Sci-fi.

 

My biggest other hobby is researching other hobbies.  I watch a bunch of videos, and read a bunch of articles about woodworking, carpentry, metalworking and bladesmithing.  All things that I am keen to try, but don't have the room or equipment for.  This spring I plan on building a workshop in the back yard so that I get a start on one or more of them.

Sleep.

 

Oh how I wish. I never was a heavy sleeper and it seems I get one normal night's sleep a week now. And then I don't sleep the next night just because I had that good night's sleep. Then the baby or something else happens that keeps me from sleeping again.

 

My main time killers are assembling and painting my minis and terrain and reading or watching videos about games. minis and terrain. After that it would be computer games, watching tv and reading. Trying to get back into paintball and some other more physical stuff but just haven't yet. Used to do a ton of outdoor stuff but I've turned into a house pet the last 5 years.

I have to ask, how far do you need to go to do snowshoeing?
