As the title says, what do you tell yourself all the time, even though you know, deep down inside, that you are just fooling yourself?

This is the year that I organize everything.

I can give it up anytime I want… Any time at all… No problemo… easy peasy.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 12:24 a.m. PST

I was going to say that I don't lie to myself, but that would be a lie.

Doug MSC Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 12:36 a.m. PST

I don't need to add any more units to this period.

Personal logo Aurochs Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 1:26 a.m. PST

Those are the last miniatures I buy this year.

Dagwood08 Aug 2018 1:29 a.m. PST

I am definitely going to paint all those 6mm figures …… one day…..

warwell08 Aug 2018 1:33 a.m. PST

I am not going to change scales ever again.

Personal logo Patrick R Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 2:46 a.m. PST

I'm perfectly happy with the historical periods I'm already doing and I don't need any more of them …

Bill Rosser Inactive Member08 Aug 2018 3:07 a.m. PST

Honey, these are an investment, like art.

Wackmole9 Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 3:48 a.m. PST

One more wargame project won't over extended me and I Really wasn't that interested in the other projects anyway.

CSherrange08 Aug 2018 4:08 a.m. PST

I wont buy anything else until I have all of my projects completed…..

skipper John Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 4:15 a.m. PST

"I can afford that!"

DisasterWargamer Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 4:22 a.m. PST

I will paint all of them

Mutant Q08 Aug 2018 5:09 a.m. PST

These will be the perfect rules for this genre of wargame. I'll never need to look at another set of rules again!

rustymusket08 Aug 2018 5:54 a.m. PST

These will be all the figures I buy for this game.

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 6:06 a.m. PST

1) Once I get these last few figures painted, I do a game with them.

2) I'll just need another unit and then I'll run a game.

Rich Bliss08 Aug 2018 7:19 a.m. PST

All I have left to do is finish this period and I'll have everything I want.

Legion 408 Aug 2018 7:35 a.m. PST

I'm not going to buy anymore figures … evil grin

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 7:36 a.m. PST

Soon, I'll be getting more games in.

witteridderludo08 Aug 2018 7:36 a.m. PST

My plan to buy less, paint more and play more.
I seem to be a hoarder first and a gamer second.

Personal logo Andrew Walters Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 7:57 a.m. PST

I'm going to make this, paint that, and have a great game!

ToysnSoldiers Inactive Member08 Aug 2018 8:40 a.m. PST

I want my lawyer present.

BrianW08 Aug 2018 9:08 a.m. PST

This time, my painting desk is going to STAY clean and organized.

Oberlindes Sol LIC08 Aug 2018 9:26 a.m. PST

Sure, I can use that piece of plastic for something.

That I'm going to actually play more games.

Me: "I realy need this random piece of trash for a scenery project that I will start as soon as I get home with it!"

Wife: "What about the random piece of trash you brought home yesterday that is sill on the floor of the living room?"

Personal logo Virtualscratchbuilder Supporting Member of TMP Fezian08 Aug 2018 10:23 a.m. PST

That I am going to game regularly.

Personal logo Der Alte Fritz Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 11:05 a.m. PST

I'm going to do this new period as a skirmish game so I don't need very many figures.

dapeters08 Aug 2018 11:24 a.m. PST

I am going to finish this project and not get distracted with another.

That women will find me irresistible once they find out I'm a wargamer

"One of these days I'll find a gentlemanly bunch of gamers who will be just as serious about history as I am* and who will be happy to play my preferred set of rules, including my modifications."

*meaning they agree with me

coopman08 Aug 2018 12:32 p.m. PST

"I am going to play a lot of games with these figures once I get them painted up".

Gardensnake08 Aug 2018 1:57 p.m. PST

Many of the previous apply to me

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 2:08 p.m. PST

I can find room to store that.

evilgong Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2018 2:38 p.m. PST

My heavy cavalry will defeat his lights, exposing the flank of his infantry and I'll sweep him from the field.

RobSmith08 Aug 2018 2:54 p.m. PST

I am going to paint, prime or base for at least an hour each night!

Russ Lockwood09 Aug 2018 4:56 a.m. PST

I'm due to roll a 6 (or 10)!

Timmo uk09 Aug 2018 9:05 a.m. PST

I can finish a project, after all I've been working on one for nearly 40 years (on and off but mostly off) and it must be nearly done by now.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP09 Aug 2018 12:33 p.m. PST

Hey, this battle will make a really good game!
The good guys will almost certainly win, if I modify the rules properly to insure it, and the players on the losing side will have a good time regardless.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP09 Aug 2018 12:36 p.m. PST

Yeah, this is a big order that I'll be placing, but I shouldn't need to get any more figures for this project at all.

Rogues109 Aug 2018 12:41 p.m. PST

All of the above and I'm sure all of the below.

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP09 Aug 2018 2:57 p.m. PST

If I get rid of (x) figure(s) or terrain piece, I will need them in a week or two.

My figure painting is good enough!

tkdguy09 Aug 2018 3:32 p.m. PST

I'm great at painting miniatures and crafting terrain!

I'm usually met with howls of laughter after making that comment.

14th NJ Vol Supporting Member of TMP09 Aug 2018 4:28 p.m. PST

The guys will love my home brew rules & they'll become our groups go to set.

Considering retirement from gaming.

I'm going to have this army fully painted by next week.

PVT64115 Aug 2018 11:33 a.m. PST

BrockLanders: "That women will find me irresistible once they find out I'm a wargamer"
