Lets see who is watch...

Hey guys, well it has been a while since I posted here last, or actually on my regular gaming blog too. After Mike's wedding was over and everything had been taken care of and they were off to their honeymoon, I decided not to take anything to serious (out side of work) for the rest of 2010, and that is exactly what I have been doing. I have been taking it easy, enjoying life, catching up on TV series that I am behind on (using Zune and Netflix) , and just generally relaxing. And I have to say it has been fun. I paint when I want and don't have deadlines. I go out and game 3-4 times a week and I have been having fun with board games and deck building card games and avoiding (for the most part) those miniature games I tend to take way to seriously.

Now the question is, what do I do come January? Do I get back on course and starting working on the Steam Punk Ork army I have been talking about getting ready for the Nova Open this year? As the tournament season looms with events kicking off as early as Feb next year do I focus on getting something new done so I can get in some games and prep for it? Or do just sit back and do what I have been lately? I have been enjoying the no deadline approach to my gaming of late, but then again, I haven't really gotten anything done but increase my started but unfinished models quota to finished models.

I guess I will need to get serious again.


  1. Simple question: what did you enjoy more? Taking it easy or working towards accomplishing the goal of models? Your hobby is supposed to be fun. Do whatever gives you the most fun.

  2. You come back to Malifaux, start playing too many games and buying too many models... paint up way too much Malifaux... and uh, well play more!

  3. I agree with Mike, your hobby shouldnt be a job. Setting deadlines for yourself, or setting goals for yourself is about giving your hobby structure, not giving yourself another job. The important thing is to not stress over failing to meet those deadlines, push it off, failing to paint a model may be a let down, but its not the end of the world. Having your 4 month old crying her brains out cause your still driving home and she just pooped could be though =)
