In general, 2009 went by far, far too quickly.
I found a set of gaming resolutions I’d written up back in December, 2008:
- Finish! Finish my Skaven army. Work on a few Dark Angels. Return to painting Tau.
- Paint! Get 2500 points worth of Tyranids painted.
- Compete! I’m doing the Baltimore Grand Tournament again this year. I’ll shoot to win three of my games there, instead of the two in 2008.
- Finish! – HAHAHAHAHAHA. Not even close
- Paint! – I abandoned the Tyranid army midyear. Lost interest, and sold off the minis.
- Compete! – Again, not even close. I did two tournaments this year, total: the Fantasy Escalation League early in the year and Dragon Wars. That’s it. Not getting to the Baltimore GT isn’t really my fault, though.
Some notable accomplishments:
- I was a Golden Daemon Finalist at Baltimore Games Day 2008, with my Deathwing Techmarine. I’m quite proud of that.
- I started up this blog. First post was April 1. Since then, I’ve done something like 85 posts, and have some number of readers (19 followers, 23 in Google Reader: not sure what the overlap is). This has given me a lot of motivation to paint, which is never a bad thing.
- Finish! Finish stuff. I need to try to close the door on a project before opening the door to a new one. Let’s start this off by finishing off my Khornate Daemons.
- Paint! Yep, pretty much. I need to set more tangible goals and work towards them. Since Bill posted about them, I’m going to check out the Lone Pilgrim points scheme.
- Compete! Do some tournaments. Organize and participate in. I had a lot more fun a-tournamenting with 40K in 2008 than I did meandering from game to game in 2009.
