Goal check-in time!
Let's review the goals.
1. Buy No More Than 5 New Board Games
I think in 2013 I bought in the realm of 10 new games. I think I should be able to stick to 5.
2. Participate in X-Wing League or Run Season 3 of Waaagh Cast Cup Blood Bowl League
I'm uncertain this will work. Running the BBowl league is a lot of work and the local X-Wing
3. Play 4 Supplemental Rules Games
This one I can feel as practically done already.
4. Complete the Skaven
5. Paint 1,000 Points of Orcs & Goblins
Also completely doable
6. Attend Minimum 5 Local Events
Again! Completely achievable goal here. Especially with me nixing out all out of town GT's except for BITS.
7. Top 10 Finish
is a crapshoot. With BITS being a 100 player tournament this year and
me never scoring super well in tournaments I'm going to somehow have to
take a hard army that doesn't make people hate it, play it well, somehow
improve my sportsmanship scores (although I don't think I'm a bad guy I
always perform low/middle in this category) and then I have to manage
to get decent paint scores. Not impossible, but I don't feel it is
8. Assemble 5 Tables of Terrain
uncertainty. Last year I managed to assemble enough terrain to cover 2
tables, but none of that is painted still. To paint and assemble not
only those, but another 3 I think will be rough.
9. Run the Tournament
on the previous goal. If I can actually get the stuff together this is
totally achievable, but without the terrain clearly a failure.
10. Lose Weight
have to get back to running and working on this. Starting on new years
day I began tracking my calories again with a resounding punch as I
went a bout 1000 calories over that day. As of the writing of this
article I'm standing fast at my calorie goals the last couple of days.
Getting back to running is a bit more difficult.
So, January's goal was to complete item #4 on the list. Finish Skaven. Well guess what? DONE! I have assembled and painted the following:
1 Packmaster with Shock Prod
1 Packmaster Squeel Gnawtooth
1 Skaven War Litter
So I'm left here with 1 item notched off of the checklist. Also, since I'm discussing that I should state that I bought a new board game (No Thanks!). That makes only 4 left for the rest of the year. God this is going to be tough to stick to because there is another game that my wife actually wants and that I want which I'll probably be discussing in the future. Another couple of things that I have to report on is that I have attended the first local event in Bloomington in January which I took Best Overall in. I'm also preparing to attend another one in two weeks which will give me 2 of 5. Excited! On to what I'll be working on until my new Dwarf units and book come out, I pulled out more terrain for my 5 tables. Hi ho, hi ho, its off to work I go!
