No doubt, the hobby highlight of the year was our trip to Nottingham almost three weeks ago now. I won't wax too lyrically about it, but it was really fun to finally get around to visiting the 'Hobby Mecca'.
Ørnulv hosted another 'Hunker in the Bunker' in November, as well as the annual Team gathering in Kjerringvik in August. An extraordinarily Good Time was had, on both occasions. Can't wait until we're all together again!
In-between those two events half the team went to Kristiansand for the Invasion tournament. Ørn took a well deserved second place with his fluffy Dark Eldar army, as well as the Best Painted award.
All in all, it seems this was very much Ørn's year. I guess the rest of us will have to step it up a bit next year... Speaking of stepping up, though: How did everyone do with last year's resolutions?
...to actually finish my Basilica de Veteris project. (I know I haven't posted anything about that here, so I guess I also resolve to do something about that too.)
...to finally decide on how I want to model my Traitor Guard guardsmen, stop procrastinating and finish at least 2000 points. This army will be the main focus of my monthly projects for next year.
...to play at least 40 games of Warhammer 40.000, not counting tournament games.
...Finishing my Dark Eldar army (at least 3000p)
...Building two more city terrain peaces (for variety)
...Hosting at least 3 TSB battle bunker events + Kjerringvik weekend event in august
...Trying to play at least one 40k game every 14. Day
...Attending the Invasion tourney in September
...Evaluating if the “new TAU” could be my next army project, or if not….
...Finally deciding if I should start on a Imperial Guard army (Ultramar planetary defence force)
...completing 6000 pts Eldar Craftworld army
...builiding at least 3 different Eldar terrain features
...attending at least 2 tournaments in 2012
...play as much as possible - the goal is as Jørn, 40 games not counting tournaments
Those were all the resolutions from last year. Time to 'fess up and report on how we all did - as well as post next year's resolutions. Those of you who didn't get around to post anything last year are, of course, invited to come and play this year.
In the mean time: Happy new year, and may sixes be upon you!
