Happy Holiday's and a Guten Rütsch

I'll keep the words down, but we're in Wisconsin to visit the Parents over the Holidays.  I have to say though that I'm a bit disappointed, the weather in Germany is about the same as back here.  :(   I've been waiting all year for the "Frozen Tundra" of  'Scansin, but it ain't gonna happen.  Still it's better than living down there in FIB Land.  :)

See you all in the New Year, have fun, be safe, and enjoy the time with your families.

A year in review

I'll start with a review of my goals, and then move on to my view of the hobby in General.

1. Blog Regularly.  
I started the year strong with 4 - 5 posts a month, but after summer vacation this dropped to a measly twice per month.  This is a direct reflection of the amount of hobby time I had available over the last few months.

2. Game Regularly.
Nope, I failed here. Nuf said.

3. Finish the following Models:
Nope, failed here to.  Although I started on the Hvy weps, Avenger, an Warhound, I didn't finish them. I did finish my Rough Riders though.

  - 7th Scansin:
      - Hvy Weps
      - 2nd Squad

  - BG 82:
      - Arial Support
      - Warhound

4. Use the Painting Chart to track my painting progress.
I'll give myself a plus point here as every time I DID paint or model, I made sure to update my painting chart.

5. Finish and post up my collected Fluff and Background information 
And again, I feel I did a good job here.  I ran my "TOE" series over 5 posts covering the different Regiments in the Battle Group. Next year I'm going to continue with the Battle Group itself.

Well I guess that's it.  Happy New Year to all and I wish you all the best in the coming year.
