As we get to the last couple of days of 2015 I think I can safely say that on the hobby front its been a very good year, with plenty of stuff done & a descent amount of posts here on if it wasn't for one's, this one bring the total to 69 over one a week.
You see dear reader the blog has become just as much apart of my hobby as modelling, painting or gaming, with out the blog there wouldn't have been much point in the creation of Tricol as there would be no one to shear it with outside of the few people that take part in the games, would I have written up something like the Von Bittner points the finger post if there was no way to shear it with.
Way back in January I was still trying to hold on to 40k & it did give me the wonderful game against Mike T that was reported in the (http://ifitwasntforone.blogspot.ie/2015/01/40k-holding-out-for-hero.html) post, there was also some Necromunda stuff going on.
February was still Necromunda & 40K & I even gave thought to doing a new 40K army in the shape of Ad-mech & made up a nid list for Leprecon.
Sadly the models in the picture above still stand the same way, but I do have plans for them.
March & our little Necromunda campaign was over, I enjoyed it but it wasn't really what I was looking for, on the 40K front it was my nids & SoB's that where getting all the love.
The plastic Lictor right a conversion I really enjoyed doing, I also played 40K in the first day of Leprecon's two day event using my nids, March also had the great Assassin freed 40K game with the Doc that went to the last dice roll more or less.
April seen the clash of the Titans as once again I took on the Doc, sadly unlike the Assassin game this one was very one sided but it did see two of FW's finest take centre stage.
April also seen another FW model as I got around to getting the Vulture Gunship finished
May was where a idea I'd had the year before started to come to life, yes dear reader we where about to enter the Tricol system & my hobby was about to head in a very different direction.
June & after some trouble out in the asteroid belt Panama Jack was to set foot on the planet Shin-Tethys, where the Bash Street gang went out of their way to make him feel welcome.
July was all about Tricol & Pulp Alley, as I built a river for my table
& Jack went looking for some parts in the Aeronautica plant.
August started with Jack nearly losing his heart to Alex, but another lady was to play a bigger part in things
Adele Blanc-Sec was to prove a handful many a time, August was also the end of the hobby season, where you pick what your hoping to get done in the next year & then look back to see what you did or in my case didn't do, hopefully next August will see an improvement.
September brings one of the high lights of the year for me know as NWG an event in Wicklow town, with me thinking I'd once & for all left 40K behind I was asked would I do up the rulespack & take part
the first I did but the second thanks to uneven numbers I didn't have to & had a wonderful day playing a couple of RPG's, it really was farewell to 40K
October I built a ship & had a nice find & done up some beastmen how where to be found on a certain island
November found me finding some inspiration
& seen ugly scenes on the streets of Dunmarn
December brings us near the end of this post, but while you dear reader where getting into the season of you will to your fellow man Von Bittner was pointing his finger.
As you look forward to ringing in the Newyear my friends spare a thought for those left stranded on a very perilous island
Have a happy Newyear & I'll see you all on the flip side & as always my thanks for dropping in, it just wouldn't be the same without you.
