That was the year that was... 2011

Happy New Year!

...and so another year disappears down the pan...

It seems de rigeur among the wargaming bloggerati to put up some kind of view of how 2011 was, and what your plans are for 2012, so why on earth should I want to buck the trend...??

I've got to say it wasn't a stand out year... painting totals for the year turned out at 223 [click here], but most of that was the WWII re-basing project so the number of new units joining the ranks was low - I stand in awe of the output of some of my fellow bloggers (they know who they are) but my favourite new unit this year was the Tigers [click here]

Ninety three posts this year (c/w 81 in '10) so that was pretty good (in fact I'm a bit surprised I was so prolific - it didn't seem like it!)

Only four table top games all year (pitiful) - but two massive virtual games that DG and I have been playing all year (Rogersburg and Waynes Junction)
Three brilliant shows though - Salute, Colours and Warfare - some fantastic books read, got to see the Mechanics again (brilliant night - Dad-dancing to the fore!), a fine holiday, and some good sailing [click here] made 2011 an overall good'un...

I don't make New Years resolutions - what I'd like to do is a little more painting, and a few more table top games than last year......  I'd be happy with that!

All the best to you and yours for 2012....!
