It's been a funny old year...

Well, we're nearly at the end of the year and it was February when I last posted to this blog. Back then I was posting to say that I was about to post more content. Obviously that didn't work out too well - doh!

I've had a busy, if funny (as in strange), old year.

On the non-gaming front I've been ruminating about changing the direction of my career and, when there's bills to pay and family commitments to consider, this takes up quite a lot of brain space. I now know how I'm going to progress things so next year is looking to be a year of transition for me. More on that later on.

The past twelve months have been pretty good on the gaming side of things. The first half of the year saw me playing lots of games on a weekly basis but this burst of activity tailed off in the autumn to fortnightly games and I'm currently in a bit of a 2-3 week rate at the moment. The main reason for this is that I've been juggling some pretty extensive home improvements with working for myself (and family stuff) in the latter part of the year so time has been in very short supply. We're having a pause in the home improvements over winter so I'm expecting to get back to more regular gaming in Jan/Feb.

What have I been playing this year?

Mostly Warhammer 40k, Warmaster Ancients, Kings of War and lately SAGA. Along with the miniatures based games I've played a whole raft of board games too.

Games not played properly yet (just a few test games with them) but I'm planning on getting to the table more regularly next year include Secrets of the Third Reich, Cutlass and FOG ancients. I'll also be playing a lot more board games, dice games and card games as they seem to be being released at an ever increasing rate - which is great!

Looking ahead into next year...

The big thing for me in gaming next year will be a project I've been kicking around for quite some time now. I'll talk more about it in a separate post but it's something myself, my brother and a chap you might know are working on - we're aiming at a spring launch.

Next year should be a lot of fun.


  1. Great to hear from you! I wish you the best in the new year.

  2. Cheers and thanks!

    I've got to be very disciplined in the new year so I should be updating more regularly, it shouldn't be too hard to beat my past efforts. :P

    All the best for the new year to you too.


Thanks for looking at my blog and taking the time to make a comment. Please keep it clean, it's a family show, many thanks in advance. :-)
