Well I keep getting a little healthier day by day. I am not sure when NyQuil becomes an addiction but I think I am going to find out.
I like the flats and think they are somewhat useful. It is nice to have an unlimited supply for sure.
I am going to ponder some odds and ends.
First off, the hobby in general. I got to admit that wargaming has become confusing for me. There is so much coming so fast that it seems impossible to be part of all of it. So it seems easier to be part of none of it. Lately I can muster no enthusiasm for the latest new product line. And my finances could not do it if I wanted to.
Kickstarter is running amok. Every few seconds there is a new product to pre-purchase. There are new rules to learn, new fluff to read and new armies to collect and paint. This is a golden time to be in the hobby for sure.
Unless you already have a huge collection of models and rules you still like from the bygone era.
I just realized how long it has been since I played Squad Leader. Or Fantasy Rules! by Chipco. And why did I make an Army Builder file for Warhamer 3rd edition? Just to throw it aside along with years of painting so I can run out like some easily manipulated consumer?
So expect a few posts about crap most people could care less about. I simply can not muster enough enthusiasm to tweet all my friends about some all new Gate of Antares or whatever. I do fondly remember playing Red Barricades and a host of other old gems that deserve to be dusted off once in a while.
My current wargaming project is to base up a lot of 1/72 scale WW2 models, scan and massively enlarge my Squad Leader maps, and then combine the best of both worlds. If possible I am going to make a couple of sc-fi models to go along with them.
Once my Reaper kickstarter pile of goodies arrive, ( I know, I was weak and it was just that one time) I am going to run some games of Chipco Fantasy Rules! at a local shop. It is the finest fantasy rule set ever. It only needs a couple of tweaks to be perfect. There is a strong likelihood I am going to make a few models of a generic nature for Chipco or other games. Whatever I happen to feel like throwing in to the collection.
In the meantime there is still slot car racing. This hobby has been soaking up most of my attention.
And with a lucky lottery ticket will once again.
Have a great weekend folks. And maybe take a moment to revisit an old favorite.
