Happy New Year to all my gaming friends, blog readers, and podcast listeners.
Last year was an excellent year of gaming- what are your plans for this year?
My 2018 plans?
I’m feeling good about Warhammer 40K 8th edition right now, and naturally we will have to see what Games Workshop rolls out in terms of releases, but for 2018 I really want to focus on my Grey Knights- completing my transition of them from 7th to 8th, and then start building the “next” part of them- what is that next part? Don’t really know yet, but I do want to add some new units beyond my ‘knights, Land Raiders, & Dreadnoughts.
Battletech is going to be BIG this year. Dave and I are 99% going to start getting into the clans, and I’m looking for some more vehicles and tanks with good synergy to add to my lances and battle groups. We are also due for a new intro box set release, and I want to start/finish my proper city-fight terrain set.
I also want to jump back into regular X-Wing Miniatures play. That side of the hobby has been playing for a bit via tournaments and then stopping for a bit. I’ve had good luck on the tournament side, but I’d like to step back for a bit and get back into weekly pickup and casual play. There are TONS of ships that I have, that I just don’t play in a competitive setting, but would or could play in a weekly format.
January is also going to kick off the start of what I hope is a long lived Dungeons & Dragons campaign- I’m running the game, starting at 1st level, and I have enough written and ready to play to take us to 15th. No spoilers for now, and of course I’ll post up the gaming notes and sessions here on the blog as they happen.
On the board game side I’m looking forward to the eventual release of the various Dark Souls expansions- the core game has and continues to be fun, but I’m looking forward to new challenges and being forced to git gud.
I really want to focus on regularly playing Conan, which is more of a skirmish wargame vs. board game, and of course Gloomhaven.
Now that my Conan collection is “complete” I need to get them painted!
Wishing you all an amazing New Year of gaming!
