Obviously the year is about to end and I would like to thank you all for keeping my company over these past twelve month.
Now what are the next few month going to bring? Well I hope even more painted minis and more games. But this year I will do something that I have never done before in my life… make a new years resolution. So what is it going to be? Well over the past few years I have always bought more minis than I painted. It always evened out on aggregate, since I also sold some minis off that I had bought for projects, that I lost interest in. But the past two years have seen the stocks increase immensely. This is mainly due to the fact that I stocked up on all kinds of minis for the Napoleonic era. Right now I can sport enough (unpainted) lead and plastic for substantial Austrian, British, French, Prussian and Russian armies, as well as small Bavarian, Dutch-Belgian, Nassau-Usingen, Saxon and Württemberg armies. And I see no way, I will sell those. So my resolution for next year is not to buy any new minis in 2013. Shock horror… yes no new minis in 2013.
The only exception are those minis that will not increase my stocks or in other words… that do not have to be painted (= new additions for X-Wing). I am not too positive that this is going to be easy, because lets face it… I am a lead addict. And between Calpe, Eureka, Perry and Victrix (all in alphabetical order) there is sure going to be a lot of must haves. The other big problem I see is actually going to be 40K. As a said a few weeks ago, I have decided to start playing Tau and if rumor is right they are going to be revamped next year. As far as I understand it with GW you virtually always need the newest stuff to be able to play, so that is going to put me into a tough spot as well. But I am positive that with your help I am going to make good on my resolution… lets see.
I hope to be back with a summary of this year in blogging (I really hope WordPress do a cool animated summary like they did last year [which I unfortunately could not use since I posted my own summary too early]) and pictures of the last minis painted in 2012 soon.
Until then… have fun tonight and do not party too hard!
