A Year in Review

A Year in Review, and what a year it has been, I get to look back at the year and see what we have done, and where we are going.   Firstly it has been a long year, much has happened.  At the start of the year we didn’t really know where we would be by June, then along came Bane of War which was fantastic, I am sad that I will miss this next year. Adepticon which I will miss next year again I am pretty sad to miss this, it is a great Con and you have to go to it.  Then we moved back to Aus in May, and I traveled down to Hobart for a Flames comp, that was a load of fun.

In July we had our own Flames comp, then all of sudden here we are, late December. The move was hard, I didn’t have any paints for nearly 6 weeks, that slowed a lot down, in fact I slowed down this year, the list of stuff I painted was great for the first part of the year, then after we moved it slowed down.

Although do have alot of terrain that is not here, but still this is not exactly the best list I could have completed, moving finding time to paint was pretty hard, I even had to slow down blog content simply because I didn’t have anything to put down.   My goal list only had three things on it, I didn’t compete any of them.  So with the A year in review done, I start to look forward to next year.

First of all we have Cancon, I am playing Bloodbowl right now, there are a few players signed up, but space is filling and people really have to start getting sorted earlier, Games for Adpeticon are already full and they are 5 months away from starting, Cancon is 30 days away and some games only have 5 or 6 players.   I have to paint a team for Cancon, I have most of it sorted that I want to take, I just need to paint it, I have deadline so that should help.


Shape (yeah I let this one slip, a touch early I was doing the back ground for the post, he is nearly done then I will post) – Crystal Dragon Entry
Bloodbowl Team for cancon
Commission Bloodbowl Team
Chaos Bloodbowl team for MBBL

Yep that is for Jan only.  So I will be working hard on this.

I have a couple of projects that I want to start next year as well.

  1. 28mm AWI Americans, I have had the figures for a long time just need to start painting them.
  2.  28mm British Napoleonic army again had them for far to long really need to paint them
  3. FOG:R Spanish see above.

I think that is enough on the goals and I will see what happens after that.

Well that is it for this year, I wish everybody and happy and safe holidays I will see you all on the 2nd week of Jan for my next post.
