Well, after reviewing my goals for 2020, I've decided not to bother setting any for 2021. The only thing that I planned to work on, that I actually I did work on, was preparing for my 6mm Cold War campaign. I'm ready to get on with World War III, but first got to get about a hundred cubic feet of my daughter's junk from college out of the way to set up my the strategic map board/game.
Otherwise in 2020, I got some other stuff done; a couple post apoc buildings, 15mm Cold War British and Soviet vehicles, and a few other bits, but almost none of it was really planned, and since I didn't really do any gaming this year (only 3 games played), I'm basically 1 for 6 on planned projects for the year.
Covid didn't really impact me that much, as I'm already nearly a hermit anyway. I worked pretty much a normal schedule all year, and ended up with a little less hobby time this year, as compared to last, resulting in about 190 fewer miniatures painted than in 2019(1457 painted during 2020).
For 2021, I'd like to have all kinds of big plans, but the reality is that I expect to play a little more, as I won't be chronically obsessed with working on Cold War stuff, since it is more or less done, and otherwise, will go wherever the gaming winds take me.
I'm pretty sure that I spend some time fighting WWIII, and probably add a little bit more stuff to it. I'll probably continue to piddle along with the post apocalypse, as I've done for the past few years. Our Star Fleet Battles campaign will probably pick up again at some point this year, as will the the conflicts in imagi-Africa.
I've been slowly working toward gaming Kursk and the battle for Stonne (1940 France), and might get some work done on those. And then there is that "Near Future" thing, with KGB sleeper cells, MIB, and alien invasions all looming.
Of course, at any time, any of those projects could be disrupted by visits to Vietnam, the Sinai, a land filled with orcs and dwarves, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, or colonial adventures in the South Pacific or East Asia.
Who knows what I'll work on, or where I will end up 2021? For as troubling a year as 2020 has been, I managed to get through it, and I'm look forward to 2021 simply being a better year.
I hope everyone out there has a great 2021, Happy New Year!!
