Looking through my 2011 New Year's post, despite not really promising that much, I still underdelivered. I did paint up a substantial (for me) amount of 15mm WW2 figures, notably the Flames of War 29th ID figures with landing crafts. I have some DUKWs ready to be painted up, along with some German beach defenses...pretty much everything I need for a D-Day game except the field fortifications. So, I think that is my solitary goal for 2012. Run some beach landing games in 15mm. If I can manage to run two decent beach landing games in 2012, I will call it a successful year.
I still am itching for some Napoleonics. I just feel like I don't have enough painted to run a large enough game yet. Hopefully, I will get around to getting some more 15mm Napoleonics painted this year. In fact, I've been considering rebasing the ones I have...for the entire last year, apparently...although, really, since I'm not actually gaming with them, what's the point? But if I have time and energy enough, I'd like to pick a few smaller scenarios from Blunders on the Danube and build up those games.
I don't blog about role-playing much here, although I do role-play pretty actively. My Number One Son has his eleventh birthday coming up. I am going to get him the widely-praised Pathfinder Beginner Box. It reminds me of the old red box of my youth. And, coolly enough, this box include pre-generated characters which match Reaper's Pathfinder iconic characters-- so I will be painting up the exact same figures the first adventure uses for him.
Again, not holding out high expectations for 2012. Life has been full and time has been short. Often, I'd just rather veg out somewhere and regenerate than put forth the effort to accomplish something substantial. So, I shall keep puttering along, taking my small victories where I can.
