New Year Resolutions
It's getting to that time of year when we start thinking about what we have achieved this year and what we may aspire to in the next 12 months. In the past we had the year of more sporting play, this was mostly successful and seems to have now become part of our normal behaviour on Wednesday games night. Which is a good thing. Bickering and outright blow outs have become a rarity, Talisman excepted. We have also had a year of trying new games, some of us <cough> <cough> brought this forward by about 9 months and this has refreshed some of us, me especially, immeasurably.
What have I achieved this year? Less than I set out to that's for sure but my goal of not buying any more armies was modified to anymore Games Workshop armies which I did achieve. I did however buy three Flames of War armies largely due to the 25% temper tantrum discount on FoW products by Maelstrom. I painted one of them had the other two painted for me. I also purchased rules for Waterloo and Kampfgruppe Normandy and Disposable Heroes. I then bought some 28mm WWII figures to try the DH rules, love it but only 4.5 figures are finished.
We also combined Binx's stag do with the annual Blood Bowl Tournament which was a first for some and a boozy spectator sport for others. This year we attended our first historical convention at Colours and enjoyed ourselves to the point of purchasing.
So what should 2012 be flavoured with?
If you know put it in the comments and we can look back next year and see how well we did or not
