I’m trying some different ways of organising my work, my posts, and my gaming.
For this site, whilst a rigid format is probably unhelpful, I think a bit of structure is useful. With that in mind, I’m going to try out some fixed days with fixed topics.
What I’m going to start with, and what I think will fit well, is Miniature Mondays (MM). At present, I don’t have any miniature game client work. Sure, several of the board games I’m working on will have miniatures (some of them really quite lovely), but they’re board games with miniatures rather than miniature games per se. A very different beast.
This leaves me a bit of head space to reclaim miniatures games as a hobby, sort of. Or at least mess about with them for my own amusement rather than someone else’s requirements. Until the next client job comes along 😛
To start with at least, MM will effectively be a project log for the Old School Skirmish game I’ve been working on. I’ve got some ideas for articles, and I’m sure more will come. For now though, just know it’s coming, starting next Monday.
What I won’t be doing much or any of on MM is reviews. I think of these as a separate thing, even if I end up using the models in OSS. Reviews are both a chance to dig into a game or model range in detail, and often to use it as a springboard to talk about a specific feature that has a wider implication. I’ve also got more miniatures I’d like to review than will fit into one day a week, so it won’t really work anyway. Naturally, I’ll still be talking about models a lot on MM, just not in review format.
Finally, before I add any more of the ideas I’ve got for days, I need to go through the UKGE stuff and resolve the FAQs. Aiming to get the decks cleared of all that by the end of this month 🙂
