Oh bugger, it's.....


I am conscious that a bad case of mission creep has started to cloud my judgement of late, with too many ideas whizzing about to be healthy. I should really be sticking to naval gaming this year, with a bit of aerial gaming thrown in for variety, not 15mm or 28mm skirmishy stuff, whether it's colonial, post-war or modern. I need a bit of a reality check, as I think I've definitely been over cooking the 'ooh shiny' project pie in the sky.

So, in an effort to come back down to earth and stick with what I've told myself to do, I've decided to postpone anything terrestrial to the Summer holidays and the latter half of the year. Instead, I will be concentrating on my 1/600 scale WW2 coastal warfare project, my long in the tooth 1/2400 scale 1864 Schleswig Holstein naval war project and my latest nautical interest, the Tumbling Dice 1/2400 scale pre-dreadnoughts. I will also be doing some more 1/600 scale modern and Cold War aircraft for Target Locked On!

I think this makes a lot more sense than chasing my tail with unrealistic and over enthusiastic sidelines.

  1. Sometimes I suspect all wargaming is a fitful shift between the "one true project" and "I must do all the things!" :-)

  5. But isn't that the essence of being a wargamer? At least for me it is ... ooh shiny! followed by (at most) 2 weeks of pursuing a project before another ooh shiny! attack ...

  6. Way I see it, being scatter brained helps keep the mini's makers in business :)

  7. I'd hate to see my supply and demand curve plotted by some economist...even if it was good for the lead belt!
