OK Let's Make Some Ground Rules

As someone mentioned in my last entry, I need to learn how to use photo bucket or something similar once I get a little more free time and some actual models painted instead of the mess that is my hobby room/bedroom.  But I wanted to sit down and make a list of goals and rules I hope to accomplish and follow to make a real change in my hobby attitude.

1.  Get rid of all Warhammer 40,000 modles, aside from a few unique exceptions.  I have not played 40k since 3rd edition and truly have no love for the game.  

2. Down size armies from Warhammer Fantasy  models I am never going to use. i.e. What am I going to do with 300 clan rats, 200 night goblins with spears, 100 chaos warriors, 100 skinks with short bows (can't even use short bows anymore) etc. I have been playing and collecting for over 20 years so the list goes on and on. 

3. Do not buy any new models, unless said models are purchased with money gained from rules 1 or 2.

4. Paint, paint, paint! I will attempt to put in at least a single hour in every night.  If I miss, I will make it up.

5. Explore new avenues in the hobby.  By this I mean to try out different lines of paint.  I have been using GW paints exclusively this entire time.  I also need to branch away from doing every base with cork.  I would like to use up an extensive bit box with conversions.  I want to become better at using green stuff.  And lastly, break out that airbrush I have had buried in the closet for I don't how long.

6. I want to get back into the local scene and play some games.  I have been absent since AoS came out and need to play more.  Working 60+ hours a week doesn't help but if I can play D&D once every 2 weeks I should be able to do the same with AoS.

7.  When possible I would like to keep bases either 1", 2", 3", 4", etc. circles to use in both AoS and D&D.  More bang for the buck so to speak.

For now I feel this sets some firm guidelines that I can adhere to.  Soon I will post pictures of my progress.  There is no rhyme or reason to my line up and I am the kind of painter who needs to work on multiple projects at once.  So upcoming I have 3 dragon ogres, Greasus Goldtooth, 20 Blood Reavers, an Aspiring Deathbringer, 10 Savage Orcs, and a Ral Partha Great Bear that I want to get painted.
