My next post will concern the resolutions for 2010 but first I wanted to take a moment and ponder the events of 2009...
I began and completed 1850 points of Tau. My son has now assumed command of that army as it grows to, and beyond, 2500 points.
I began playing in July of this year. I have played 23 games. My record is 17 losses, 4 draws, and 2 wins.
I began a Space Marine chapter (Void Legion) in September. I have assembled and painted (tabletop standard, three colors) 1500 points. I have another 1000 points unassembled and unpainted.
I have started collecting a Tyranid army. It remains unassembled and unpainted, awaiting the day that the new codex is released.
I have yet to be "that guy" in a game. If anything, I feel that I have restrained my competitiveness to the point of being a lame duck (see win-draw-loss stats above).
I have drawn a new player into the hobby, my son. My nephews are next on the hit list.
My daughter owns 2.5 tactical squads of SM and SW. She is working on painting them. At eight years of age, I feel she is doing pretty well.
I was laid-off in February and started college in May. I have a 3.88 GPA.
