Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I'm well and truly set in with the rellies for Christmas now, and would just like to wish you all the most Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year (or whichever equivalent winter solstice festival that you celebrate).

I've got pics all ready to post so I'll be returning very soon in the new year.

Till then, see you on the flip side

New Years Resolutions 2010 edition

Right then, in my last post I reviewed how I'd done with last years resolutions and as I'd just been starting out I'd aimed pretty low and had managed to just about complete them all. This year I'm going to try and be a bit more ambitious so here they are (in a vague order of priority):
  1. Get my Space Wolves up to around 2500 pts so that the army has some flexibility in its build
  2. Build proper themed objective markers for the army
  3. Post on here (or at 40K Roughnecks) at least once a week
  4. Bring the M.I. up to 1500pts keeping as close as possible to theme
  5. Play in a campaign
  6. Enter (and play in - no cheating) a tournament
  7. Visit Warhammer World (and try to get in a game while there)
  8. Take up one of GW's other game systems
  9. Paint some Necrons and Eldar (for the fun of painting as I love their models)
So there you go - a little more adventurous this time round, lets see how I get on.

New Years Resolutions 2009 - a review

So its only the start of December, and I've been pretty lax on the hobby front for the last month or so. I've got a few things done, but never the time to chronicle it - especially not photos. I don't know if I'll get much more time till close to Christmas either, so I thought I'd get the ball rolling on New Years Resolutions.

First up, a review of last years resolutions. They were:
  1. Get at least one army together and most importantly PAINTED so that I can play a game or two - this is where my future Necron purchases will come in nice and handily.
  2. Start PLAYING GAMES again. I haven't had a game of 40K in years, and I'm keen to see how the game plays with all the changes that have happened over the last decade.
  3. For point 2, BUY THE NEW RULEBOOK and start to learn the new rules
  4. Retrieve all my lovely old models (mostly marines) from the 2nd gen 40K and start to paint them up (see a near future post for ideas I've had regarding this)
  5. Get my SPACE WOLVES army together to a point where I could also have a game or two with it
So, what have I achieved. Well, I've got an army, they are space wolves, they are painted up to a tabletop standard if not my best painting, I've got the new rulebook and I've had a few games and I've managed to retrieve a good portion of my old models. What haven't I achieved - well there's still some models somewhere in storage at my old childhood home, and although I've got an army, it isn't the Necrons I orignally intended (I'd still like to do them though, especially after seeing this reposted).

I'd say I'll give myself a 4/5 for this year - not bad.

I'm going to try and be more ambitious and specific with my resolutions for the coming year in the hopes that they will spur me on to greater achievements.
