2016: A Year in Review

Happy new year all. Onto some reviewing of my 2016. In short pretty good. Started off pretty crappily, with warhammer stuff taking a slide for some other commitments. I got the walking club web site spruced up by early summer, by which time my hobby mojo was returning.

By the end of the year I was getting some solid hobby achievements that I am fairly proud of. By the numbers I think I managed to paint 105 figures, which sounds pretty good to me. I made some serious headway with my Iron Warriors which was a major headache from earlier years.

The Blog

The blogger stats stuff don't seem that great. but here is my top post stuff 

Well since I only posted 6 blog things in 2016 it isn't that surprising that the stats are dominated by that post from 2014. I think I linked this one to some discussion on a thread on reddit so i'm not surprised that this is still the most popular post. Something to think about anyway.

The Hobby

The Good
  • Got stuck into my Iron Warriors. Two full squads, some characters and a Helbrute.
  • Finished my Grysyns. Proper happy with them.
  • Pretty happy I kept my spending under control.
The Bad
  • Not enough games. Only played a couple
The Ugly
  • Still not played Dystopian Wars. Will do one day.
