Sounds like the modern equivalent of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), so pretty odd... but probably lots of fun!
Mine isn't terribly odd, but collecting, using and restoring fountain pens isn't exactly mainstream, neither is turning handles for and assembling shaving brushes for that matter...
OK, just saw the 40k reference post... are you a tabletop RPGer or is there an MMORPG of Warhammer now?
I was a tabletop game- my army of Eldar Harelquins would regularly get steamrolled by the glorious Empire
There's a couple of RTS games from the 40k stable, plus a rather fun-if-brain-out Hack'n'slash 3rd person shooter called Space Marine on the Xbox.
There's a bunch of short teasers for a Space Hulk online game doing the rounds, plus an Inquisitor game too.
Most folks in who airsoft go with the modern kit- chest rigs, be-railed M4s, magpul and so on.....I'm in the narrow end of the distribution curve when it comes to gear set up
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
