This is not a New Years resolution.
This is a result of me having some time off from work to clear the brain and think about stuff.
I kinda went berserk for a year or so with painting and playing Warmachine, and well. I kinda burned out and the thought of putting paint to model made me groan.
let me put that in perspective for you. For someone who considers themselves a casual painter I completed the models below in just over a year.
|Yeah, the boys in blue|
The last six months have been mostly playing board games, computer games and card games.
Six posts in six months is pretty ordinary content updates, so I've decided to make more content this year. Yep, actual updates on stuff.
In order to do this I have decided to expand what the blog focuses on. So far, it's been mostly about model painting, which frankly is a small part of the hobby for me.
What to expect in 2014
I'm enjoying these, but I only read those books on the bus home from work so it can take a while to get through them. I plan to keep posting one and month as that seems to work out. Descent of Angels is written up and will be posted next week. Two updates in two weeks.... luxury
Yep, I'm finally getting the itch to paint again. And if I paint stuff, I want to play with it. I have a small pile of unpainted figs that need attention, and I plan to start this weekend.
I'm also thinking of a noobs guide to Cygnar.
I thought about getting the lads to help me review games, but logistically, that's actually a pain in the ass. I might sample them for sound bites, but i reckon i can review the games by myself.
Yep, might see a few more guest posts this year from the local gaming community and the droogies I call friends.
And to be honest, a lot of my friends paint about 100 times better than I do. So if you want actual painting advice, instead of just watching a monkey mash paint around, then watch this space.
NETRUNNER/STAR WARS LCGs
This is a big change, including card games, which I have steered clear of bringing to the blog for ages. But the fact is, i like them, so screw you all. Thankfully, this will not include magic, as I'd rather pay off a mortgage than play that game.
P.S. Get your netrunner from http://seriouslyboard.co.nz/ if you are in New Zealand. First place to get the last two data packs in the world!
