Finish my snow terrain so I can play the Ardennes, Frostgrave and Retreat from Moscow.

Paint up all the Empress Indian Mutiny figures to add to all my painted Foundry guys.

Add to my Pacific WWII figures.

Play more games, took a lot of time off this last year to recharge.

The great thing is that this year at the end of March I retire. Smiley

More time for the hobby, if I can stay away from reading all the cool stuff on LAF. Laugh

Thanks to all who spend time making this forum so fun. Love

2015 was a painful, grating, dragging year, which ended with major personal upheaval.

Hopefully, in the wake of upheaval comes rejuvenation, so...

2016: A New (and Improved) Year!

Establish a permanent miniatures workspace so I needn't pack everything up each time I'm interrupted-
I'm planning my own time, so no more arbitrary interruptions-
Re-connect with my gaming pals and actually play more often than once or twice a year-

Terrain: my MDF & photo-skinned "Mean Streets" urban layout has begun
Get enough modern/martial artist figures for the "Fistful of Kung Fu" games I've been dreaming about
Maybe see if my brother's interested in Osprey's "Black Ops" (he's retired from an actual career in that sort of thing, so maybe he can offer a 'reality check' on the ruleset)

This is a plan...  Laugh

1) Sell off as many 25+mm miniatures as I can.   Cool

2). No new miniatures except 1:1 sold off or 1:2 painted (and only in 15mm or smaller sizes.)     neutral

3). During 2016 I plan to

A) paint 100 Ral Partha (RP) 1970s goblins

B) paint 100 RP Dwarf

C) paint 50 non-RP Dwarfs

D) paint my VSF/Tarzan figures in 25+mm

E ) paint my VSF/Tarzan figures in 15mm

F) paint some of my 15mm SF forces (amount TBD)

G) paint some of my 15mm Fantasy Forces (amount TBD)

H) paint football figures for Competitive Violence League beta test games

I) paint 3mm and 6mm figures when possible

Paint more than last year.
Shouldn't be hard, I finished 10 or so figures in 2015... Sad

1) finish several projects in perpetual "almost ready state " on the painting table
15 mm ottomans, tartars, Russian reiters, Western reiters, algerian pirates, the small band of crusader sergeants, spearmen and pilgrims 
2) push forward with the 28 mm samurai and pieces of terrain that are in state of just begun - get enough terrain to be able to field standard scenarios for By Fire and Sword
3) and in between that responsible stuff: Get enough carthagenians and their allies painted to paint to be able to play weith them: first with Sword and Spear later maybe with Hail Caesar
4) and not to be left after all the painting, play - By Fire and Sword skirmishes, at least one huge Pike and Shotte clash, preferably one or two divisional games of By Fire and Sword, some Lion Rampant (or Dragon rampant), maybe some Piquet and maybe Chain of Command

5) don't buy more new stuff than I paint to finished status. That is going to be challenging, with the rest of the Carthaginian allies approaching at some point, but may be achievable if progress on Carthaginians is as swift as it was in trial units of numidians and hispanians were.

Simple, I must play more.
I spent a lot of money in the last couple of years in various rule books, minis, paints, terrain pieces and even some boxed games and I barely played 5 or 6 games in the last three years.

I'm new here so I guess this is a great topic to start with. 

2015 brought a major move so in 2016 I hope to finish my new game room. I'm not sure on how to post pictures as of yet but when I figure it out I will do so.
I would also like to complete my Picts for Dux Brit. The Raiders Supp. Also, complete our Helms Deep model, F&IW minis and more scratch built buildings.

I also am trying not to buy any new minis as I have a mountain of lead presently Shocked

Out of the gate in 2016, I'm working on a battalion of militia for Black Powder.

I'm working on a couple of armies in 28mm plastics, but I'm developing my own setting and nations- I'm converting ECW/30YW cavalry into dragoons for one army; the other army will be using 1700's line infantry;
I've even got a unit of Warlord Games' Firelock Storming Party done up as light infantry.

Once finished with the militia, I'll move on to a battalion of line infantry for the 2nd army, and see if I can finish the dragoons.

I'm sure it'll look great once I make some progress, but the rather anachronistic conversions and colors might make some historical gamers weep.  Smiley

Step 1. Declare your targets.
Step 2. Roll perfectly on your Shooting just to watch the enemy Foot troop pass all of his Morale saves.
Step 3. Jazz hands!

In 2016 I am going to continue to concentrate on the Back of Beyond and Darkest Africa. 
1. Paint up 6-7 Warlord Chinese units (1 is finished and another almost finished).
2. Paint up my BOB American unit and support
3. Paint up some more BOB civies
4. Acquire some Bolshie and White Russian cavalry
5. Acquire support weapons for my Bolshies, White Russians, and Chinese
6. Paint up a small unit of Cuprum's wonderful Basmachis
7. Construct some new pulpish African huts
8. Construct a palisade for my DA village
This month my painting mojo has been strong so hoping to actually get this all done

I can't remember if I posted it here, but I set a Q1 goal of 12 hobby tasks to complete by April 1st. If I achieve my goal I'll buy the next round of BMG models I wanted. If not, I'll have to wait until May. I'm actually doing quite well so far, but it's early...and we all know how resolutions go. Tongue
