2011 in Review

I was busily painting my EPIC Necrons when I heard the explosions from fireworks in the sky. I knew it was the end of the year and time to put my paint brush down. I have been working hard on this army the past few days trying to get it done. I still have some painting on the models to complete it but for the most part it is done.

So lets take a look at 2011:

My goal for the year was to simply focus my time on painting. I wanted to spend a hour a day painting. Being the realist that I am, I could not spend just a hour a day painting nor could I paint every day of the week. Either way, it balanced out nicely for me throughout the year. I was able to paint two armies in 2011 and made a great gaming board for Command and Colors. I also worked on other painting projects along the way.

I played in my first tournament (Gathering in the Desert) and had a great time.

I started playing historical games and will be exploring more of them in the future.

That is about it for 2011. I played a lot of great games with my friends and painted some models. I am very happy with my success with gaming, painting and blogging.

Now whats on the calendar for 2012. I am going to keep the same goal that I made in 2011. I just want to keep up with my painting and budgeting my time so I can paint. The only twist I am going to throw in the mix in 2012 is I want to focus on WW2. I have a collection of 28MM, 15MM and 6MM models. So be prepared to see some WW2 stuff in the near future.

I will be playing in another tournament (Gathering in the Desert).

I heard rumors of another painting competition however not many details at the moment. All I know at this point is we will have a group of guys all painting 40K Orks and playing some games. It will be fun and interesting.

So happy News Years to everybody and thank you for reading my blog and keeping your blogs up to date. I enjoy reading what other gamers are doing and sharing their tips and tricks.
