Resurrecting Little Nicky's Gameroom and plans for 2016

It has been a long time since I have posted on here.  Not entirely sure what happened.  I did move positions at work, but I actually have weekends now which should be a boon to a gamer like me. 2015 was not the best year hobby wise.  I played a decent amount of games, played more board games, and did some painting here and there.  I started a lot of armies, but only to move onto another project very quickly.  I have refined my gaming to certain genres and rule sets.  I have pretty much given up on anything Games Workshop.  Hopefully 2016 will be a little more cohesive and I can finish a few projects and play more games.

Painting Goals:

Finish painting a 50 point Legion of Everblight army for Privateer Press' Hordes/Warmachine

300 points of the Morat Aggression Force for Infinity by Corvus Belli

2 Carthaginian Divisions for Hail Caesar by Warlord

600 points of my UNSC for Gruntz

Bonus Painting Goals:

Paint a 2nd 600 point Gruntz Army

Finish my 20mm BAOR, West Germans and Soviets for Cold War Gone Hot era games.

Gaming Goals

12 games each of the following:
Star Wars X-Wing
Star Wars Armada

6 Games of the following:
Hail Caesar
20mm Moderns

Would love to hit a majority of these goals.  I am aiming to play my first game of Hail Caesar in March.  Will probably be just 1 division per side (4 units + skirmishers).  I would really like to limit my purchases to storage and transportation, terrain, and filling in the gaps of armies I already have models for.  I have a lot of unbuilt miniatures.  I really need to cut down on my purchasing of miniatures that I won't even paint for a couple years.  It will be hard to resist, but I have already done pretty well over the past couple months resisting a few exciting looking armies and games.  I would love to go a whole year without purchasing a new game system (New rule sets are fine as long as they fit the models I already own).

Anyways, sorry to everyone that follows this blog for taking over a year to post.  I should have a few posts lined up from pictures I have taken in 2015, and then I plan to take pictures of every game I play.  Would love to post 1-2 times a week.  We shall visit this post again in a year and see how we do.
