Almost One Month .. How 2015 is Shaping Up? (New Year's Resolutions)

New Year's Resolution#1: "To play 20 Games(*1) in 2015"
  1. Computer Game: Age of Empires Castle Siege (and enjoying it)
(*1) These include: Tabletop Wargame (multi-player or solo), PBM or Computer Moderated, Multi-Player OnLine Game(s), Board Game (multi-player or solo) 
Note: Difficulty [Predicted Hard and still looks that way] :(
New Year's Resolution#2: "To finish 12 Modelling Projects(*2) in 2015"
  1. Airfix Matilda II (Project Type [a]) Complete
  2. Airfix Matilda II (Project Type [a]) Complete
  3. AWI 28mm Painting Prototype Figure (Project Type [d])
  4. AWI 28mm Regular Infantry Unit (14 Figures) (Project Type [c]) WIP (1 of 14)
  5. Airfix Matilda II (Project Type [a]) WIP
  6. StarGruntz GZG 15mm Infantry Platoon (10 Figures) (Project Type [c]) WIP (8 of 40)
(*2) Project Types: (a) making a larger scale model from kit in box to assembled [1/76+ vehicle or plane, 1/1200+ ship], (b) painting a larger scale an assembled model [see (a)], (c) painting a tactical squad of troops or small scale wargaming OoB element [1/200 or 1/300 micro-tanks or aircraft. 1/3000 scale ships], (d) Painting Prototype(s) for (c) if in-depth.
Note: Difficulty [Medium, though it is looking easy given the unexpected backlog/supply of Airfix "tanks" I have recently found in the loft I would say more easy]
New Year's Resolution#3: "To read 5 Wargaming Related Books(*3) in 2015"
  • None! (As yet, though there is plenty of latent reading matter lying around the house, as my wife constantly reminds me) :(
(*3) This includes, new Rule Books, Historical Reference Books, Historical Novels, Campaign Histories, Books on Modelling Techniques excludes magazines
Note: Difficulty [Easy, er well I seem to have struck out in January, much to my surprise. My reading material seems to be my sons bedtime fiction, work (computing/busines books) and some general science]
New Year's Resolution#4: "To experiment with Digital Resources(*4) for my Hobbies"
  1. Wargames Soldiers and Strategy Online YouTube Painting Tutorial Guides
  2. YouTube Battleground Videos 
  3. Age of Empires Castle Siege 
(*4) This includes "Getting a Kindle" (at some point), playing On-Line Games (which probably means getting a new computer) ... this could mean goodbye to some books, or at least not so many new ones!
Note: Difficulty [Medium, still medium]
Cor, this is quite a serious looking post, 2015 mapped out!

Good luck, Geordie; impressive list ;) I, too, 'have plans' but haven't got round to posting them of late (along with all the other absent posts).
Still, onwards and upwards, despite too much real-life getting in the way :-(
Looking forward to seeing your plans map out.

It's more of a wargaming project dashboard. It is blinking red for the fact I don't "play games" anymore.

In my bachelor days I was playing once sometimes twice weekly.

All I seem to do nowadays is "read about it" (or rather not yet this year) or get some time to "paint or glue"

Computer gaming might be my only hope!
