2015 New Year Gaming Resolutions
« on: December 19, 2014, 12:08:58 pm »
OG Tradition, what are your gaming resolutions for 2015??

Mine in no particular order are...

1) build 2 Bolt Action gaming boards, a Jap POW Camp and a French Village (I have all the buildings and material, just need to get my arse into gear and do it)

2) paint my German Occult Army for bolt action

3) learn Malifaux

4) Arrange and run my first event since moving up north

5) play a new boardgame every week (which I have been doing the last few months)

6) start playing the Call of Cthulhu card game again and encourage new players, it's by far the best CCG/LCG ever made imo....

Just the two for me this year:

1) Finish off my Khorne Legion - just a few units then I'll be done (famous last words), but my pace is so slow now that taking all year seems likely.

2) Get to an X-Wing event or two, don't embarrass myself too much.


I'd also say 'try more games', but that should just be taken as standard anyway. :)

Edit: Although, saying that, playing some more Dredd would be good at some point. I'm not sure what the state of that game is after Warlord took them over.

Well, looking back over my 2014 resolutions:

1.  No one seems to want to play Dreadball, sigh, I think it's a great game and if I can persuade anyone to play I'm sure they'll agree!

2.  Bretts/Blood Angels/Imperial Guard - all went on hold at various points in the year due to new books (alleged only in the case of the Bretts!).  My planned mech-Angels are a no go, so I just need to think of a better list, still love me some Space Vampires.  The Imperial Guard actually had a few runs out in 6th and a keen eye on Ebay has netted me loads of old metal Catachans so they should get a game or two of 7th, with some rather Traitor-Guard vehicles.

2015 Resolutions

1. Finish the Skaven army.  Very little to do now, just a second unit of Jezzails, Plague Furnace and (finally) convert the old style Screaming Bell to not look too weedy.  This will never happen as it's just so tiny, cue a purchase of the plastic kit later in the year  :wink;m::

2.  Lots of painting.  I have Space Wolves (da*n you Stormclaw box set), Catachan Traitors, ghostly Bretts and Blood Angels in various states of stripping/converting/painting.  I need to knuckle down and paint.

3.  Get back into magic - I know I'm getting some Khans decks for me, the Mrs and her brother to play over xmas itself, so willl have legal cards for a year or so, win!

4.  As usual, play more.

Nonsense Tom - all you need is balsa wood. Behold!

Totally my mistake. After some hours in the Clan Moulder re-education camps, I now realise it's actually TRIPLE AWESOME..

      No particular order (because that would just be silly):

      - Finish my Imperial Knight (hope to get this pretty much done over Christmas, to pave the way in 2015 for.... lots of Blood Angels!!!).

      - Start with minor model updates to my BAs because of the new book (thankfully the lists I tend to run were not overtly affected by the new FOC/unit changes):
      • Company Champion for my now "Command" Squad (Honour Guard dammit!)
      • 2 Jump Assault Sergeants, double Inferno Pistol, double Hand Flamer
      • 2 Jump Assault Flamers
      • Foot-slogging Priest

      - Continue the painting plan of doing "X" large kit and "X" unit/model in tandem (to keep things fresh and to keep painting momentum) and to expand my BA options, in no particular order:
      • Sicaran Battle Tank
      • Damocles Command Rhino
      • Stormraven Gunship
      • Sanguinary Guard Squad with various load-outs
      • Jump DC with options
      • Commander Dante
      • Second Jump Librarian
      • CC Scout Squad
      • Double Melta Attack Bike Squad

      - Carry on doing some scenery related stuff:
      • Buy a gaming mat from Frontline Games (because they are sweeeeeettt)
      • Finish my Imperial Statuary piece
      • Some more craters/barricades
      • Mechanicus themed Skyport (using various scenery kits to create a multi-level Skyshield type arrangement

      - Maybe try and get back to doing some more on the Chapter Fortress... though again this will be unlikely, knowing me.

      - General additions:
      • Imperial Assassins, all of them
      • Maybe some Wolf Allies

      That should keep me going, and now that it's all written down I have something tangible to refer to this time next year to see how well I..... FAILED!

I started a skaven army about a month ago, painting has picked up recently on them, and I'm quite enthused about them so hoping to get an army done first few months of this year. I bought some wind globadiers and jezzails and now it looks like the former at least might be released as a plastic kit for the next End times book if the rumourmill be true.

From the leaked image of the new Vermin Lord I think my Skaven army may actually have some further recruits to come in 2015 - Globadiers could be a nice looking addition, although I've never had any lucky with them in games (4+ to do 1 wound is pretty poor in a world  of monstrous cav).

If the alleged armoured rat ogres and a new Thanquol are also in the offing...sigh, it's going to be an expensive January!

Late to the party but in brief:

- Try my hand at painting, I'm very aware of the overwhelming greyness of all my game minis having seen the threads on here and the models at the club...

- Survival of an entire dungeon in Warhammer Quest, preferably without needing ressurection.

- More Descent!
