Paint as much as I buy (impossible).

Speed up my painting (not likely).

Finish cataloging what I have got (likely).

Find a way of selling all (lots of) my GW stuff. (ideas?)

Decide whether or not to go to Salute 2016 for the first time (still pondering).

Give up alcohol (less likely than any of the above. . . . .) Wink

My plan is to work through my current backlog.  My un-built and unpainted pile is embarrassingly small compared to many fine folks on here.  I would say I have about 300 or so models to paint in 28mm Napoleonics and 15mm Flames of War.  My aim is to knock out 50 - 100 each month that way I am caught up relatively quick and can get on to buying some models for Lion Rampant!

More desk time. Less time eating Pringles and chocolate and vegging on the couch watching Netflix.

Having said that, I just spent the afternoon vegging on the couch ... watching Netflix ... and yes, eating Pringles and chocolate.

But I also had an apple, so you know ... baby steps.

Hastings for Salute.

Ravenna for the next year at Salute or Partizan- or both.

Smaller projects; Indian Mutiny, NWF and Haggis (Lion) Rampant.

To think further than that is madness at present. Smiley

On New Years Eve I played my first games of Malifaux from the starter set, which will be finished this weekend, I loved this game and plan to promote the game this year at my newly opened games shop (at last), plus I have a few other projects that are ongoing so plans are:

Malifaux complete one gang per month (about 10 figures each) and build scenery, soulstone mine and a few buildings inc. a theatre to house my potato cup organ Shocked in April I plan to run some introductory participation games in my local store for a week and in June or July I would like to set up a six week campaign using their new campaign rules.

SLA Industries continue to paint the figures as released (3-6 figures a month), playtest Skirmish rules

Nordic Fantasy Skirmish continue to paint figures, mostly Red Box Games and a few other select miniatures, and finish writing the rules.

WWII Bolt Action Paint some Germans to oppose the Commandos I have already painted,maybe start a Vichy French force for North Africa.

Achtung Cthulhu an occasional figure to add to the above.

Lucidea Paint models as released?

To assist in this I hope to enter this year's LPL, think I can fulfil the special rounds with current projects.

If I fulfil 2/3rd of this I will e very happy

I'm going to set a goal of painting more than I buy. Let's say for every mini  I buy I need to paint two other minis. I probably will fall off the wagon by Tuesday but here's hoping.

To actually paint something again!  Mind you, that was my plan for 2015 too, and that didn't work out.

More gaming ( keep on the frequency of the last few months will do just fine ).
More painting ( less is quite impossible ).
Keep on buying ( don't need to improve on that level  Laugh ).
Reconquering the Gaming Room and getting the collection and means of display sorted out.

Last year saw the first year where I bought into a good few periods and grew the lead pile for many a moon, must say though managed to knock out quite a bit of painting

2016 plans

Part 1 finishing projects

A few renaissance dwarf units and artillery, around 40 figure
Around 40 renaisance goblins plus a dozen ridend chicken knights
A unit of a dozen zulu orcs

The above gives me 2 large armies for dragon rampant/ god of battles

30 converted brits for my maori wars to close that project
Around 100 samurai types and 7 4ground buildings to do
Portuguese lots sitting in lead pile for 6 or so years which have added to over last couple of years
Last 30 germans to add to my COC germans plus couple of tanks though re enforced platoon painted since september

Part 2

Dwarf roman army of around 100 figures untouched in lead pile
Dwarf scots army of around 100 figures in lead pile
Fighting season USMC PLATOON and platoon of insurgents which were chrimbo pressies
Frostgrave one warband done and another nearly finished
Buildings for ww2 and afghanistan as want to get some terrain together after losing all mine from moving hoke and selling of over last 5 years

So aiming to consolidate rather than grow...that is until shiney effect hits😀

All frostgrave minis painted.
"All"  Cheesy ... isn't that a risky thing to say? Doomed from the start?  Wink
Never say never in RL and never say all in Tabletopgaming. ^^

Very interesting to read, we really should come back next year and check, who achieved what, when the dust has settled.

Finish any of the projects I have started. Any of them, really. I am focusing first on Frostgrave, and then either Lion Rampant (both Westerosi and Historical armies) or Fallout (using This Is Not a Test). I also have a small Mad Max project coming together, which would be really easy to start and finish, so maybe I'll strike there while the iron is hot. Really, I just need to be more disciplined about getting things done this year. And considering the number of figured I bought last year (several 100) and the number I finished painting (if we include sealing them at the end that number is a pathetic 0), I'd say I have my work cut out for me.  Roll Eyes Cheesy
