Looking back...

In an effort to consider my gaming-related resolutions for next year, I looked back at the goals I set for myself last year. Let's see how I did, shall we?

1. "What is Wargaming?" article - I never did write this, did I? I'd still like to, I just have to remember to actually do it.

More terrain! - This one wasn't about building terrain, it was about showing off other people's terrain. I did a couple posts on this, but it didn't last very long.

More games... Maybe... - Pftt! Not even close. In fact, I think it was this year that I came to terms with the fact that I have no time for another game system. I'd still like to break out some Star Wars minis with my son, but it's important to accept my limitations. 

Running my First 40K Campaign - This is one thing I did do. Some things were good about it and some things were bad. If nothing else it was a learning experience. It gave me a lot of ideas for my next campaign.

So I only got one out of three. Pretty abysmal, I'd say. Next time, more looking back on 2008.

Prospero Burns!!

The Black Library just announced its 2009 line-up of books. Coming in November, Propero Burns. I have been waiting for this since the Horus Heresy series started. Finally, the truth about what those murderous dogs, the Space Wolves, did to Prospero, the beautiful home world of the Thousand Sons.

What I'm especially happy about is who BL picked to write it: None other than Dan Abnett!

Now, I can't say that Dan Abnett is my favorite BL author, but he's definitely one of the best writers they have. At the very least, I know he's not going to butcher it. I also may not agree with his take on things, but at least I know it's going to be well written.

Updates and Such

I haven't posted in a couple weeks, but I have been painting. I don't have pictures, but don't much feel like getting into the details of lost camera parts and such.

Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know that I am now part of the ++From the Warp++ Blogger Group. Yeah!!

Those of you that follow the group may notice that I haven't really participated in the round tables at all. This will change! I promise (As long as it's not about tactic/ strategy. Then the last thing you want is my advice. So far in 5th edition, I've lost almost every game).

In other news, I played my daemon army for the first time a couple weeks ago and got my first draw of 5th edition. Hopefully with a little practice, I can turn that into a win next time.
