2020 Man of TIN New Gaming Year’s Irresolutions

NGY 2020 Irresolution One – Carry on Converting

Sadly Carry on Converting, Carry on Gaming and Carry on Painting are not a trio of 1960s comedy movies with Barbara Windsor and Kenneth Williams.

Paint conversions, figure conversions from Pound Store plastic figures and old Airfix through to repairing old 54mm lead figures

Airfix Confederates or Angrian Bronte ImagiNations militia?

Saxby Bridge, Navvy Battles and Civil Unrest as small skirmish scenarios

NGY 2020 Irresolution Two – More solo short small skirmish games

Including 15mm Peter Laing, Airfix 20mm up to 54mm figures across a range of periods including Romans, Bronte ImagiNations etc. using simple Featherstone inspired rules.

NGY 2020 Irresolution Three – Paint More Peter Laings

I should be putting more content of painted figures and gaming with Peter Laing figures on the MeWe Peter Laing community forum

and

NGY 2020 Irresolution Four – Full Metal Hic Jacet

15mm Peter Laing Romans vs Picts and Ancients ‘Small Skirmish’ games. I’m fairly new to Ancients, if you don’t count Airfix Romans and Britons:

NGY 2020 Irresolution Five – Return to Planet Back Yarden

I seemed to spend all year on and off enjoyably preparing for a 42mm or 54mm garden skirmish game with plastics or old lead that never properly happened. Sci-Fi Space Wars, American Civil War, ImagiNations and colonial Little Wars or WW2 – who knows which period will make it into the flower bed battles? I foresee creaky knees and an aching back …

NGY 2020 Irresolution Six – Develop my Scouting Wide Games for the Tabletop

Developing my Scouting Wide Games for the Tabletop games and rules on my sister blog site including snowball fights rules and preparing for the Little Wars Revisited Woking 54mm Little Wars Saturday 14th March 2020.

NGY 2020 Irresolution Seven – Develop my Bronte inspired ImagiNations in 19th and 20th Century

2020 is another of the Bronte200 anniversaries https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/gaming-the-bronte-family-imaginations-of-glasstown-angria-gondal-and-gaaldine/

Simple Airfix joy – I was so happily sidetracked by Tony’s gift …

How did the 2019 New Gaming Years Irresolutions go?

https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/new-gaming-year-irresolutions-2019/

I succeeded in a few (very few) of my vague irresolute hobby targets. 2019 The year just gone seems to have gone very quickly.

February or #FEMbruary 2019 saw the believable female miniature painting of modelling challenge with my Bad Squiddo 28mm Land Girls entered into my local spring flower show. https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/17/huzzah-for-boycraft-flower-show-craft-success/

‘Scouting’ happened along in April, when I picked up a copy of a vintage Wide Games book on a seaside holiday, which set me (and also Alan at the Duchy of Tradgardland) off on a new tangent.

In summer, the kind gift of a bag of old 1960s Airfix figures by Tony Adams at the Miniature Wood Screw Army led to some nice relaxed painting and rebasing of Airfix figures. This often feels quite relaxing to be like happy colouring in.

Who knows where my “gaming journey” will have taken me at the end of 2020 and by the end of the Twenty Twenties?

If it’s as fun as where it’s has taken me since 2010, I will be happy enough!

Here’s best wishes for the tabletop gaming year to come to all my blog readers, to all those whose blogs I enjoy reading and for all those online strangers that I have not met yet who stumble across my Man of TIN blog and my other blogs this year.

Happy New Year! Blog posted by Mark Man of TIN on 31 December 2019 / 1 January 2020.

  1. I really enjoyed reading your gaming thoughts for the coming year. I look forward to seeing the developments and following your progress. Weather permitting I do hope you manage that outdoor game in 2020. A good new year when it comes.

    1. Alan Thank you for being an inspiring and focussing part of it – I am looking forward to Snow Forts and Scouting Wide Games at the Woking day this year. Like a Victorian Territorials or Yeomanry Field Day … which is what an outdoor games day when it finally happens will be.
      I hope you will share with us vicarious shots of your Airfix haul being sorted out. Mark Man of TIN

    1. Thank you MJT. Let it be publicly known and said that I Mark Man of TIN have absolutely no intention of keeping them.
      Somewhere I have a half painted lead town crier type which I should complete to make these irresolute proclamations more official.
      Best of luck with your gaming year ahead!

    1. Thanks – best of luck with your Bookish Resolutions.
      I have the opposite challenge of too much nonfiction, too little fiction, Brontes aside. So I have ordered American Hippo that I saw on your book reviews (and the original Gullivers Travels). Good for ImagiNations.
      Not sure what my #FEMbruary modelling or painting challenge will be this year … possibly Girl Scouts related or something connected to the (Anne Bronte200) Brontes?
