Firstly a Happy New Year to everyone. Also I hope you all had a good xmas holiday. Mine was very relaxed down in Kent at my partner’s Mum’s… that has been my big improvement of 2019 getting a wonder new partner.
This xmas the generosity of my presents from friends and family has been very humbling and has really been heartwarming.
In terms of hobby stuff the big item was a PLA Anycube 3D printer. I’ll post pictures of it once I’ve assembled it. It is not something I want to rush. I’ve loads I’m planning to do with it – a SF corridor set first I think as my first big project maybe some other SF terrain to get me started…
I also got loads of 40k stuff- my Death Guard Kill Team will be raised up to full army level. Additionally I got the box set of Imperialis Aeronautica so watch out for that too.
The other big thing for me in 2020 is that I’ll be starting my PhD- plan ‘D’ worked out so come March I’ll be at studying under Bath Spa University looking into Asymmetric warfare simulation models and their use in military training. Yup, a PhD in wargames. I’m really looking forward to it- I’m sure it will be lots of hardwork and some difficult times too though. Again watch this space as the game side of things will be blogged here too.
2019 saw lots of gaming but not as much megagaming- I think I was getting a bit burnt out with it tbh- will have to see what this year brings…
One last thing:
Where has all the time gone? It didn’t seem that long ago I would roleplay this every week in my early teens in the 90s….
