Well, here it is. January 1st, 2014. It is that time again when folks make New Year’s Resolutions and then promptly forget them within the month. Resolutions sound so binding. So rather than make a bunch of resolutions that I more than likely won’t stick to, I’ve decided instead to set some goals and work towards them. As far as gaming goes and blogging go, here are the goals I’ve established for myself…subject to change of course.
First of all, I would like to blog more. At least once a month if not more often. I’ve had a bad case of writer’s block for a while now but that has seemed to go away. In order to help do this, I’m adding Role Playing Games to my purview. I have lots of them. I’ve been playing them since 1977 and all of my published writing has been for RPG’s. My original plan was to establish a separate blog but it makes more sense just to add it here.
As for miniatures gaming (which I’ve been doing since 1972), there are several projects that I would like to complete. One of them is getting my Horse and Musket army painted up. I plan on having to Imagi-Nations ready to go. The first is my beloved Ruritania and the other are hordes of Kravonia. I have several sets of rules and am basing my troops to be able to them all. While the Army of Ruritania is in medium gray (Army Painter Uniform Grey) with various colored cuffs, breeches and vests to designate the individual units, I have yet to settle on what color the Kravonians will be wearing.
There will also of course be more Skirmish Gaming and lots of WWII action. I’m also planning on running some WWI games as well since this year is 100th Anniversary of that war. I will also be writing some convention reports and generally talking about the hobby.
Well, that’s it for now. I hope that 2014 brings much happiness and success to all!
Play games and have fun!
