Happy New Year everyone. I thought I'd post a New Year's resolution post to supplement my recent "year in review" post.
I'd like to move forward with projects this year, game more, paint more, and basically go about things smarter than in the past. With that in mind, here are some gaming resolutions for the upcoming year:
Sell 1/4 of Excess Hobby Stuff. If you're a GW gamer, then you're in serious luck here. I've got unpainted, unpunched, still-in-the-plastic mint 40k stuff bursting at the seams in my attic. Going to sell it off this year, either on TMP, Ebay, or at a convention. All that cha-ching $$$ goes right back into the hobby. (also a ton of WWII 1/72 scale stuff I gotta sell off...)
Paint All My 15mm Soviets. You read that right. Wait, modern or WWII? All of them. Vehicles, Troops, Trucks, Planes. Everything. God Help Me. Every last T-72, T-34, and SU.
Better Storage Options. Right not it's damn inexcusable how I store some of my stuff and my nicely painted troopers are suffering from it. I love the idea of using display shelves for my 15mm, or even more sterilite plastic drawers. One thing is for certain, the rubbermaid trays need to go.
Better Terrain. I need to continue to "up my game" in terms of terrain. Whether it's plowed fields, orchards, graveyards, or other cool things to add, my battlefields are kind of "meh" and could use some freshening up. I need to build more hedgerows, urban areas, bridges, rivers, culverts, and dug in markers. Yes, I need more terrain.
Buildings. The wife allowed me to "bank" my allowance and I'm saving it for a huge building buying binge. I'm thinking Crecscent Root buildings will deliver the European structures I need at the price I like. Coupled with the 4Ground Buildings I already have, I believe that will sufficiently answer the mail for 20th century buildings.
World War II Rules Dilemma. This is a tough one and one that will continue to plague me as we go forward into 2017. Just like the Horse & Musket rules dilemma, I'm having a hard time deciding what my "go to" WWII rules are, and just like the Horse & Musket rules dilemma, this one will take copious amounts of mental anguish to solve. But we'll get there! We always do!
Anyways that's it. I think these are fairly measurable, realistic, and achievable based on their scope. What are your 2017 Gaming Resolutions?
