1 Year

Sunday, December 18, 2011

It was 1 year ago today that I decided to start this blog in hopes that it would help me get back into 40k, actually paint a 2000 point army, and use said army in an event/tournament. Looking back over the past year, I can't believe all of the things that have happened; not just the hobby related activities but the life changing events that have occurred. By far, the single greatest thing I am most proud and happy about is my son, Gabriel. Just 7 short weeks ago he was born and made my wife and I the happiest people on earth. I can't wait till he is old enough to play some games with his dad :)

As far as hobby activity goes, I can safely say that in the 10+ years I've been around the warhammer hobby I've never accomplished as much as I have this past year. I assembled and painted over 2000pts of a space marine bike army, which I used at Nova and Blob's Park, my first two big events ever.

I even started on a new army, one that I hope will become a big focus for this next year.

Outside of 40k, over the past year I really got into board games, like Settlers of Catan. I even branched into a new tabletop game system, Malifaux, which I still have much more to learn about. I was almost tempted into Fantasy Battle by the Ogre Kingdoms' release, but luckily Gabe came along and talked some sense into my wallet! As for the new Necrons, I've got enough core models to keep me busy for awhile but this is a project I'd like to do as Gabe's first army for whenever he's ready to roll some dice.

Overall, it's been an incredible year. Thanks to all of you who have been along for the ride or have just dropped in to say hi. I met some really great people this year through the blog, through random games, and through the 40k events. And I look forward to what this next year has to bring!

Oh, I also got into Scotch this past year (single malt of course) so I raise my glass to all of you now. Cheers!
