|The year what was.|
With the new year on the horizon, and since I see them popping up across the interwebs, I thought I'd take a look at what I've done this year. Starting with models built would be appropriate, but I'm not entirely sure what was done this year and what was done in years past, so let's just skip ahead to painting.
10 Assault Marines
5 Sanguinary Guard
10 choppy Boyz
22 shooty Boyz (with a Big Shoota and a Rokkit Launcha)
Orsus1 (or prime as you prefer)
Irusk1 (though he already needs repairs ><;)
6 Doom Reavers
Winter Guard Deathstar (all 16 of them)
2 wreck markers
|See something notable back there?|
From a blogging perspective I managed:
168 posts (not counting this one), up from 88 last year
23 battle reports (including a video report)
Joined 3 blog networks
Revamped the design (now with a banner!)
And a bit of inside baseball, enjoyed a huge jump in blog traffic
As happy as I am with my painting list, the blogging list makes me a bit happier still. I'm a writer by training and inclination (if not yet by trade, fingers crossed for 2012), so churning out the words is closer to the heart than cranking out the minis. There's plenty of room for improvement (looking at you proof-reading) but considering that I'm averaging about a post every other day at least I have the an appropriate quantity. Much as I'd like to be an every day poster, I just don't think it'll happen. If I could find a way to make a living by blogging then I'd be a couple-times-per-day poster, but alas that particular pipe dream is well beyond reasonable.
In less tangible results, EV and I got in a game per week with great regularity. I'm sure we missed a week here and there, but for the most part there was a steady diet of gaming. I made my (Warmahordes) tournament debut and had a great time while also getting a good result. Having recently found the Warmahordes community hiding (in plain sight) at my FLGS, games-per-week has risen dramatically and will hopefully hit a level that satisfies my Warmahordes hunger while also allowing for more system flexibility with EV, who loves to hop from game to game.
|Now that's flexibility.|
|Had to get another one in.|
