New Years Resolutions ?

You gotta be kiddin' me! Who thought January was the best time to make resolutions that had a cat in Hades chance of sticking! It's cold, dark and will remain so for another two months, and all that Christmas Cheer needs to be paid off at the end of the month!

I mean who in their right mind is going to start dieting or go on the wagon during the height of winter? And equally, who is going to make resolutions about "I am only going to buy 15 figures this year", yeah and why? because you have a tin mountain in your study/back bedroom/ flat that can be picked up from space by CIA spy satellites!

But of course you also have that 15% discount voucher from GZG to use before the end of the month, Brigade still have 15% off till the 7th and then QRF announce a 15% off everything (well, good as) running from 11th to 25th January! That's followed by Jon at Khurasan announcing the Felid support weapons pack and Early Medieval Swiss - not Sci Fi perhaps but C13-C14th century ordinary cowpoke with pikes, halberds and plancon, be they Swiss, Scots or Flemish taking on the arrogant harnessed noblesse of Europe appeals to my sense of social justice.

So any pretence at gaming resolutions for the New Year dissipates up an X-Wing's tailpipe and it's only 3rd of January!

  1. I know what you mean about the diet - I've tried the eat less for the sake of health and not really felt any better (though the weight is down). So this year I had sorted the hobby out beofre the 1st and decided to make a single resolution with the simple aim of getting fit by planning to walk Hadrians Wall

    Main thing for next year looks like to enjoy 15mm as more shinny bits are comming our way.

    Best New Year wishes to you all.
