It’s been a blessing and a curse having not set hobby goals this year. It’s been good to not feel guilty as I jump from project to project, but I have been acquiring a bunch of stuff I arguably don’t need. February felt like a relatively unproductive month, however in hindsight I did get quite a bit done, especially when you consider I did significant amount of assembling which isn’t reflected here but should set me up to keep cracking through models over coming months.
Rangers of Shadow Deep
My desire to play this game keeps growing, but part of me wants to have everything perfectly represented and painted before I commence. That’s probably a recipe that will lead to me never playing so I’m going to plan exactly what I want down for the first scenario and focus on getting that done in March so I can throw some solo play dice. That said, I picked up a couple of the Mantic Terrain Crates to round out some thematically appropriate scatter pieces for a town which will also hopefully see play elsewhere as well.
A Song of Ice and Fire Tabletop Miniatures Game
I knocked out my initial Game Night Kit pieces, with Roose Bolton painted (having taken the black, as he’ll likely see play in my Night’s Watch) and the eight Lannister activation markers finished as well. The latter have headed Monkey’s way as he’s taken the plunge and will be fielding a Lannister force. I’ve taken the Stark half of the starter box, so will be getting some House Umber action to the (painting and gaming) table in the future.
It didn’t feel like a huge amount of progress this month, but I’m happy with what I got done looking back on it. Given the amount and variety of stuff I got assembled and primed over the month I’m also confident that I won’t run out of steam painting-wise over the coming weeks, albeit it may look like a bit of hobby ADD has taken hold at times.
