Happy New Year everyone! A bit belated, but I was exhausted New Years Eve and worked New Years Day. So.
I want to start this off with a few comparisons betwixt 2013 and 2014 -
2013 saw a total of 16 Figures finished.
2014 saw a total of 135 Figures finished!
2013 saw a total of 0 Terrain Pieces finished.
2014 saw a total of 6 Terrain Pieces finished!
2013 I posted 9 blog updates.
2014 I posted 41 blog updates!
Positive progress all around!
Now a few thoughts. I didn't really post a "Beginning of year goals" post in January 2014, but I did have some goals in mind, and I'm glad to say, I met almost all of them.
1. I told myself I would actually game more in 2014 - Accomplished. I formed a small games club that I'm calling "The Crossed Tomahawks" Gaming Club. We meet AT LEAST once a month, but have been aiming for, and for the most part succeeding in gaming at least twice a month.
2. Paint More Figures - As seen by the numbers above, I feel I crushed this goal!
3. Finish at least one base army - Accomplished. The basic starter set of Anglo-Danes for SAGA is complete and have even seen combat...annnnnd were soundly trounced by some half painted Vikings.
4. Visit a wargames show - Failed. I didn't make it to Historicon.
5. Take part in a painting challenge - Accomplished! Sort of. Haha. When I first made this goal, I was going to jump in on the BIG painting challenge thats currently running...I instead, joining with some other intrepid souls decided to NOT buy figures and instead try to reduce my "Lead Mountain" by painting as much as I could in six months. We're 4 months in and going strong!
Now, to the goals for 2015 -
1. Take all the numbers from 2013/14, both blog entries posted and minis/terrain pieces finished, and completely smash those records.
2. MORE MINIATURES GAMES!
3. Piggybacking off of #2 - Several ideas and plans for some campaigns shall come to fruition this year, and will be blogged about in AAR/Story format.
Ya'll have seen my project list...those are all still there, I'm just not going to bore you with it again. I do have a feeling that there will be more projects added to the list though.
I seriously feel very grateful for the amount of encouragement I've gotten from y'all, and I hope you've enjoyed my seriously meandering in this hobby of ours. Now, lets get this year going!
