2014 Resolutions - Grey Tide Style

With a hefty bit of plastic currently in various stages of painting, priming, off sprue, and on sprue, I figured this would be a good New Years resolution of sorts.  As with all resolutions, it is all about commitment, determination, and getting that first week under your belt.  With that said, I am currently battling through the second semester of my job, starting coaching, and have a couple of other major things to deal with.  Yet I am going to find time, space, and the willpower to hit all of my goals.  This is going to be a quick, what is my current tide, what I want to get done and by when, and what do I need to do to make sure I get there.

What better way to start the New Year than by realizing how much stuff I really have to get through.



As you can see, I got some painted......and most not

So here is My Grey Tide Resolution.

I know it sounds really ambitious but I am hoping to put if not a huge hole in my Grey Tide, but almost cut it in half.

Hopefully the blog, the guys, and my own drive will keep me on schedule so I can do a dent and a half in it.

Look for a lot of updates on my painting, progress, and hopefully a completed Army over 2k.
