Plans for 2013 - Six-Month Review
New Year's Resolutions for 2013. It's been a busy old year in terms of real life, with plenty going on at work but luckily I've managed to fit in plenty of hobby time. Let's take a look at the list I wrote way back in January (feels like a week ago).
- Game more. Hmm, it's difficult to gauge this one because you could always play more games. But I think I've done pretty well here. Only one 40K game (vs. Coldsteel Dan) which was a thriller, but me and Headologist have also managed a mini campaign of Necromunda and Battlefleet Gothic, each one being a set of four or five games. Not much to most people probably but that's pretty good for me! This goal's going well.
- Finish my WW2 armies. Less good on this front, I've been slowly chipping away at odd members of the Waffen-SS platoon now but failed to make any concrete progress. This is partly because of lots of new projects like the BFG and Necromunda. Must try harder!
- Doing Airfix kits. Looking back this was a bit of a short-term goal, which I put in because I had about four kits to do, but nonetheless I managed to get a few done up and painted - U-96 and Evening Star, both really fun changes of pace.
- Finishing the Chaos Renegades. Failed on this one - no new models and not even a game played! I'm struggling to muster the same enthusiasm for collecting a whole army as I had for my Palladians. But I still fancy keeping the ones I've got, maybe using them for patrol clashes and things.
So how are other peoples' years going? I know not everybody likes these New Years Resolution posts but I find them very handy (and enjoy reading other gamers' lists as well), since they let me go back to how things were and what I ahd planned. Having it on the blog means it's harder to ignore than if it were a post it note. I promised you chaps this stuff so it helps motivate me a bit.
I'm still really pleased in general - although I've failed in one or two goals it's not been through laziness, just working on alternate projects and I have things like the BFG ships and Necromunda gangs, which I never dreamed I'd have six months ago. And I've pretty much rounded off the Imperial Guard army, which took two years.
So overall not bad. Let me know what you're all up to as well, and until then ... happy painting!
