I've been doing a lot of thinking about what to do now that I've hit my goal but still have 4.5 months left in the year. I considered shifting gears, maybe starting a new army for Warhammer Fantasy Battles or maybe something totally different, like When the Navy Walked. I considered shifting hobby gears and focusing on building terrain or an RPG-related project.
After a lot of consideration, I decided to go with a long-standing but often forgotten precept. Namely, dedicate the time to the game(s) you are playing. That means the weekly drubbing I get in 40K. The way I figure, I have the terminator squad, the scout squad, two rhinos, a razorback, and a predator to go. That's 60 points (admittedly forty of which are vehicles, which some have said are over-valued in my paradigm). That's 15 a month, which is a more leisurely pace that what I've been doing for the most part. So theoretically I can relax a bit on the painting, and still have the Brazen Claws finished by year's end, which isn't a bad post-goal goal at all.
