2019 Fortune Cookie Goals
Okay, so time to set down some goals for my hobby for this
year, as always, it’s a great way for me to see what I did not do. Maybe it
should be 2019 Fortune Cookie Goals. So here goes:
– Well I
plan to continue playing AoS and I have decided that I will focus on learning
the rules better as well as understanding my army, the Flesh Eaters. And as of
writing this, GW has announced that a new box set is coming out to feature
Skaven and Flesh Eaters! Hopefully that will mean cards for units and a updated
army book! The new box set looks like more of what I have already except for a
new Abhorrent King model, but I am sure there will be cards included. I have
already reached out to a local Skaven player about swapping out my skaven stuff
for his Flesh eaters stuff.
I would still like to get Frostgrave onto the table, Robert
& I really like the game, but not many of our other friends do, so I may
have to come to terms that it will not hit the table, but I will still try to
get it there.
Shadespire was bought and played last year and I purchased a
few more expansions for it, so this will continue to be played in the new year.
Warhammer Quest will still be played this year, my goal of
having almost all the models painted is almost there. And my local players are
really digging playing this old school dungeon crawl game, especially when I
supply it all.
I have been asked about Lord of the Rings and if I plan to
get the new rules. The reality is that only Robert, my son & I still play
or have stuff. The fact is I still have all my old books and a few armies left,
if I do anything with it this year, it will be using the older rules in one of
games here and there.
– Well at
the end of last year I decided to get back into 40k and bought my first Space
Marine army, the Blood Angels. I got as far as getting the start collecting box
assembled as well as the Space Hulk terminators painted (which caused me to buy
the start collecting box). So this year I want to get the game to the table, I
know Robert is waiting for me to ask for a game, which may be within the next
few weeks, so it looks like 40K is back.
Necromunda was another last year sleeper that took us all by
storm, I see this being played more this year as well and GW announced so new
models coming out as well as weapon packs for gangs. I also need to get my
Death Ray Designs wall set painted, so that Robert & I can have a truly large
set up for Necro and for Kill Team.
Robert for Christmas bought me the Kill Team rules, so the
plan is to play that this year, I would like to use my Death Ray Designs walls
for some games which fits with GWs announcement of kill Team Arena which looks
like Kill team on a Necro board. So I may be buying that game when it comes out
in the near future.
I also see Speed Freaks being played from time to time as
Robert and I both have everything painted for it, I see this as more of a side
line game or drinking game. In the same vein, I have Gaslands and would like to
get this to the table this year as well. I just need to figure the rules out
and start pushing it around the table.
I would also like to get more games of Space Hulk to the
table, the terminators are all painted, and I need to start working on the
Genestealers for the game. My problem is I need to decide on a paint scheme and
stick with it, hopefully I can have a fully painted Space Hulk game by the end
covers stuff like Bolt Action and Flames, so with that being said there are a
few things I want to get done this year. First being Bolt Action, I just
finished painting my 1500 point IJA army and I want to get it to the table as
well as add a few more items to the army. I also want to do some sort of
campaign with Bolt Action. Robert and I just bought the Operation Market Garden
book so we will be looking at doing that sometime this year.
For Flames, at the end of 2018 I purchased a Syrian force
for Fate of the Nation, so I would like to get that to the table as well as get
all my tanks painted for it. I also would like to include a few more items for
the army as well.
I would like to get Flames of War to the table again, I
really do miss pushing my tanks around my North Africa boards, so I will try to
get that back to the table.
covers just about anything not covered above. I want to get
my ACW stuff back on the table for Black Powder, Robert & I both have tried
BP with a brigade or two to a side and it was great fun. So, I would like to
use what I have painted.
Fistful of Lead will be back on the table again this year, I
will be running a few demo games at AZ Game Fair, so this should be easy to accomplish
in the new year.
Cruel Seas was purchased at the end of last year, so I want
to get it onto the table this year. I have the starter set, just need to
assemble and paint and should be smooth sailing.
Pulp Alley is always on the list for doing, although its
been missing for a few years, but I would like to get it back onto the table
this year as well.
There are many items that I have my eye on and it looks like GW will be getting
the most of it yet again, all I can say is I will try to stay focused on what I
buy. But as any gamer will tell you, its
hard to stay focused with all the new shiny things coming out. But in the very
near future will be items for AoS & 40K.
So there you go, my plans or Fortune Cookies for the new
year, we shall see what happens…
