Plan for 2016

Paint more minis, play more games, read more books. That´s my pledge.

2015 in hindsight, finished about 50 minis I think.

Went to three bloodbowl tournaments all outside my hometown (Doubt in Umeå, Närkebowl in Örebro and GothBowl in Gothenburg), and played random games in the Open season in our local gaming club.

I also picked up Necromunda again, bought loads of minis and realted books. And I started this blog.

For 2016 my plan is to record and count the finished minis I paint.

I aim to:

  • Finish at least three Blood Bowl teams
  • Document some of the teams I´ve already finished and publish them here
  • Attend at least two tournaments (where one should be EuroBowl)
  • Complete more NPC´s for the narrative Necromunda-ish setting
  • Finalize the Seasonal Scallywags
  • Explore the possibility of Pulp/Horror/Western gaming, got some models on the shelves, what do I need in terms of secenery and rulesets?
  • Make generic scenery that fits near future/pulp/horror and/or western scenarios.
  • Paint and complete more models than I buy new.

Thats the plan, its deliberatley vague. Let´s see how it pans out. This is after all my first blogging pledge.

Awakened force

Yeah, today is the day that its airing in Sweden. Thirty years has passed since the last one.

This year is also the year that Leigh Brackett would have turned 100.
If that doesnt ring any bells please check her up, she was one of the pioneers in the space opera genre and really giving women protagonists a place in her novels.

Her reputation was so great that she was contracted by Lucas do write the screenplay for the Empire strikes back. Unfortunately she passed away in cancer before she got the opportunity to see the finished results. And sadly the plans for spin-off novels with Leia and Han Solo were´nt realised.

Here´s a good summary of her works, which gives a few pointers of where to start digging for the treasures in her extensive catalogue.

And of course I´m going to see new movie, it will be a great source of inspiration and topic for discussion in the upcoming weekends.

Finished projects!

I´m thinking of making a finished project page here.

Basically starting out with a list of finished projects, painted teams for bloodbowl especially I guess. Or when i sucessfully paint up all the pieces for my HeroQuest game. That sort of thing, there should be a component of closure entailed for the item to ba valid for the list. Whenever I get the chance to do some write-up I will, and then put the link in the list to the appropriate post.
