New Year’s resolution for 2018


Again it is time for my new year’s resolution in our hobby. But first, let’s start with a quick recap of 2017. Because it was a great year of wargaming!

2017 – a Review

2017 was a great year in the hobby for me. I finished all the miniatures and terrain pieces for my Pulp Alley campaign in Darkest Africa and we had a great time playing the campaign. Unfortunately, due to time issues, I couldn’t write as many updates for the blog as I want. But there will be a post about the Pulp campaign and the miniatures/terrain pieces in 2018. So stay tuned.

But Pulp Alley wasn’t the only rule set I played in 2017. My mate made up an Infinity campaign, which we played fairly regularly. Totally different setting and a more complex set of rules – long story short: a nice addition to games like Pulp Alley. Besides that, we also played Bolt Action, Chain of Command, Dux Britanniarum, Frostgrave, Force on Force, Kings of War, Dead Man’s Hand, X-Wing and Triumph & Tragedy.

I also supported a friend with his The Walking Dead table (images below) on two conventions. It was my first convention ever and we had a great time. And this won’t be the last because my first ever published AAR about a game of Blood Eagle resulted in an invitation to a German convention called Do or Dice. We will present Blood Eagle in a Nordic setting. My mate will paint all the miniatures and I will build the whole gaming table. I am pretty excited to make it happen.

My Goals for 2018

  • For 2018 my most important resolution is to buy no new miniatures until the whole lead mountain is painted. Yes, this will be hard, but it has to be done.
  • Building a nice gaming table for our Blood Eagle presentation. This will give me the opportunity to learn something about using snow, frozen water and stuff like that.
  • Completing my fantasy campaign for Pulp Alley. This project has grown much bigger then I would ever have expected. There will be a post about the whole concept in January.
  • Writing more posts on the blog. I still have a lot of terrain pieces and miniatures, which I would like to present here. So there will be a lot of content to come.

These are my goals for the upcoming year. It will be a lot of work, but I am highly motivated. 2017 was a great year in the hobby. I played at least as much as 2016 and we have a nice community here. But there is always room for improvement. I am optimistic that 2018 will be even better. Thanks for reading and happy new year!
