It’s that time of the year where we start to make a whole bunch of different promises to ourselves and other people about what we’re going to do in the year ahead. As gamers we’re going to vow to paint, build, play and explore plenty of interesting avenues of our hobby I’m sure and so we’d love to know what you think. To start things off, here are my resolutions…
Paint Your Stuff!
There is still a lot of stuff I haven’t painted from 2014. I did really well during the Summer to get a lot of Warzone: Resurrection and SAGA stuff done but as the year came to a close I’ve stopped painted as much apart from single models.
So, with that in mind I’m going to resolve myself to painting what I have before I start buying too much more stuff! I have a lot of Lord of the Rings to paint (incidentally it’s Gondorians as above!), especially small starter warbands, and also a massive pile of Dwarfs for Warhammer Fantasy that I was kindly given by a friend.
Try This Game!
There are a number of different games that I should try but never got round to in 2014. One of these is Malifaux. I haven played a few demo games and I enjoy the mechanics but never actually started playing it. I think this year I’m going to make sure I give it a go!
As well as wargaming I think this year I’m going to focus in on buying more board games and card games. In our group this has usually fallen to one friend who is really into them but this time around I reckon I’d like to have some in my own collection. I have a handful of games already but there are a whole bunch that I’d like to pick up but just never did in 2014 like Dead of Winter. 2015 will be the year of a bigger board game collection!
What About You?
So that’s me, but what about you? This is a quick look at what I’ve got to try and work through and there’s more on the table as you can see! In terms of painting and hobby demyse has already let us know what he’s doing (there’s quite the mountain for him to work through!) but let us know below what games, models, and genres you’re going to be looking at in 2015.
