Inspired by my pal Richard’s 2014 blog entry I’ve decided I need to do one of my own. The fact is, I’m not really sure what 2014 will hold for me as far as the hobby goes. I am still very much in love with the Warhammer 40,000 universe. I’m finding more time for the hobby, and getting more things done.
I definitely hope to play a lot more next year. I have this issue with playing the game with unfinished models. I hope to at least have 1500 points painted to a high table top standard by the end of Q1-2014. I’ll try not to be too much of a perfectionist with the models.
I’m not really sure where the podcast will be in 2014. I haven’t done a new episode since October. Some people have been upset by this, and to those people, I sincerely apologize. I find myself in a position where the type of show I want to produce is not conducive to the podcast medium. I don’t talk about strategy, I don’t talk about fluff. I talk about the hobby side, the hands on stuff. And that is not supported well by an all-audio medium. Does this mean that the Big Mek will be moving to Youtube in the near future? I’m not sure, but I definitely wouldn’t rule it out.
On the other hand, I think I could do a much more interesting podcast if there were more people involved, and more elements to the podcast. I am part of a new gaming group in Dallas called the Heavy 20’s. It is a very interesting group of guys and gals, and it is absolutely LOADED with hobby talent. If I added another mic or two, and a small mixer to my equipment, a Heavy 20’s podcast could end up being a new thing, complete with a Big Mek’s Garage section.
So, as 2013 ends with a whimper, I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2014. I value each and every one of you, and am so happy to have you as a reader/listener/watcher/what-have-you. As always, if you need some help, hints, or tips… please don’t decline… to send me a line… I’ll be there… just in the nick of time… OK, I’ll probably be late. But I’ll be there. 🙂
Until then, I remain…
The Big Mek.
