What will 2014 bring?

Long time no post - the last few months of 2013 were hectic for me, but hopefully I will get in to a routine that will allow me to balance family, work and hobbies a lot better this year.

One thing I intend to do this year is not buy in to any new projects.

 If something new and shiny comes along then I wont be getting any thing to do with it.

 I can only buy things for current projects I have, and only then once I have painted up all the items I already own before I do so... although this rules may be bent for items being sold on special.

 I intend to sort out my lead/plastic pile and hopefully sell off anything I don't use, won't use or can't realistically continue a project for.

 I will also attempt to sell off rule sets I won't be playing too.

 Any funds raised will be for the projects I will be working on.

 Towards the end of 2013 I purchased a mint second hand copy of SAGA, so this will be one of the projects I will be selling things off to fund. By purchasing the Gripping Beast plastic box sets I should be able to get a couple of armies for the game relatively cheaply, which I can then supplement with some lead.

 I already have my Viking Warlord painted up waiting for a coat of varnish, so my SAGA project will fit in with the rules for 2014.

 What projects will I be keeping?

 Off the top of my head: WW2 zombies,  1920's Gangsters, Strange Aeons, Vietnam, WW2 Naval, WW2 & Modern dog fight games, and of course, my modern Zombie game.

 Once I start sorting the lead pile, this list will grow a little.

That sounds like a worthwhile plan. I should do some culling of projects as well. Good luck for the new year.

A good plan. I did this last year with EotD so I'll be doing something similar just adding to existing projects.

Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on SAGA its something thats peaked my interest but I can't make my mind up about.

Good luck with sticking to your current projects and resisting the urge to diversify even more in the face of newer, shinier, must-have things.
