It’s been a long-standing dream of mine to have enough (painted!) stuff for at least a single army to have a sizeable Apocalypse game. Recent thoughts of getting into Tau or a 3rd army have been usurped to going back to that dream and the long road to get me to the Apocalypse table will fully-fledged, painted, and finished army. What a ride! My Chaos forces seem to be in the best spot to get me there by the end of the year, and so that is going to be my focus.

Hi all! It’s that time again – time for a new Cranky Old Gamer hobby Challenge!

How did your January Hobby Challenge go? Me – not so great. I am going to declare my hobby challenge for January to be incomplete (fail!), but at least it caused me to focus my attention and get a lot farther than I had anticipated. I think I bit off too much for one month. This month, I plan to do different!

The genesis of this idea was a conversation at work on picking up a Games Workshop 40k Battleforce boxed set and assembling it and painting it, as a part of a event for a local GW store. Now this is exciting of course because it’s a challenge and gets us something new in our collection – but the fact is that, at least for many of us, we already have so much to assemble and paint, and adding a new boxed set may not be getting us closer to our end goal of “completed armies”. So what’s a cranky old gamer to do?
