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.

Im afaid I can only give you at most half points as you dont have your complete army done. not only do you not completely own it but by your own admission what you do have isnt completely painted :)

Da Green Skins said...

Inhir: I will take half points. Just so that you know, the few models that still needed some paint are now done. I will still be working on this army to add some more units. I would like to know how many armies did you paint in 2011. I know you painted a lot of models but did you finish an army :)

Jerry: Thanks for the following my blog. I will keep it going just for you buddy.

Tim Kulinski said...

Great job Mike, keep it up buddy. Look forward to seeing what you do in 2012.

As for Inhir, hmm where is his blog documenting his work??? It is really easy to post a comment here about what you did not do, but where is his proof he has done anything? ;-)

Da Green Skins said...

Tim: I agree with you on that subject. He needs to start a blog page. Maybe he will start one in 2012.

Drunken Samurai said...

Nice work! But that stuff is so small, how can you see it?

Da Green Skins said...

Drunken Samurai: Yes they are small and hard to see however whey you see hundreds of them on the table it looks cool. That is why I play the smaller scale models. It really looks like a battle taking place.
