2017 Hobby In Review

Around this time of year, everyone starts counting down their TOP X’s of 2017.  Frankly, I don’t have enough to fill out a TOP X.

Personally, 2017 has been amazing in terms of growth and what I’ve been able to achieve.  In terms of hobby, it’s been pretty meh, despite the golden age that is 8th edition.

On this basis, knowing full well I could have done a bit better with my hobby, I’d like to rattle off the stuff I’ve worked on over this year.  Basically I’m shaking down my camera roll, and if it comes out as a stream of consciousness, that’s because IT TOTALLY IS.

Floods, Real Estate, Power Tools, Goats and Dollies

My last posts would have been dated, what, mid June?  At that point in time I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed over the pending release of 8th Edition Warhammer 40k and getting some serious gaming going over the summer months…

Warhammer 40k 8th Edition and the Imperial Guard

I’ve been writing this article forever.  It’ll never get done.  At first I started writing based wholly on speculation, and now I’m writing it with my first game under my belt, and having poured over all the rules that are available out there (while also pre-ordering the material and anxiously awaiting delivery).

Perils of the Warp

As it has been in the past, I’ve been roused from the depths.  Awoken, as it were, from my long-sleep.  This time though, it was not by a wall of appreciation for my blog, it came from a single ‘tweet’.

So… Rather than incite secular violent protest among the masses, I opted to take the high road and update my damned blog.  How generous of me! Continue reading “Perils of the Warp”
