Good-bye 2015, hello 2016.
I can't say I'll miss 2015 too much, particularly the later part. It was not my most productive year. I had a bunch of big plans, but few got realized.
For 2016, my main focus will be on my modern microarmor campaign. Its been my main focus for quite some time, but I want to sprint to the finish. My goal is to get all scenery done to have my first land battle by end of January and have some sort of solo rules in place for land, sea, and air battles around that time.
Additionally, I plan to cut down on spending. Much of my spending last year went to rules...enough already with the rules! Unless GHQ finally comes out with the M103 heavy tank, I have no real plans to buy any figures for the foreseeable future. I've even been toying with the idea of selling some lead on ebay, but that is just a hard paradigm for me to shift to.
The end of the old year and beginning of the new year is a time of reflection. I have been rethinking my various projects. I have not done anything with the 15mm sci-fi for awhile. Do I want to continue it? That might be the first to sell off, at least the unpainted ones. Same goes with my post-apocalyptic/zombie/sci-fi/whatever 28mm skirmish game. My15mm fantasy is a sacred cow, but I do have a lot of unpainted that I really don't need. Naval gaming keeps calling me, but with he exception of buying GQ III, I've been holding that at bay. Starting up either ACW or AWI keeps popping into my head, but like a temperature convection cell, they rise to the top, cool down, and then sink back to the bottom.
For too many years I've made big promises and plans to accomplish X, Y, and Z but then it ends up that I'm lucky to have gotten X done. I will see what unfolds and be content with what is accomplished.
