2014 is done. 2015 is up next.

2014 has been a banner year for gaming.  I have actually managed to accomplish a lot and have been very proud of my achievements in the gaming arena.  It has been a very busy year as far as gaming goes.

40k - I basically stopped playing.  I know 7th changed a lot but the fire has died. I love the fluff but that's about it.

Malifaux - Had a blast at NOVA but I really need to actually paint the rest of my Ressers.  Probably play this more with Todd (SincaiN40k) the coming year.

Attack Wing/X-Wing - I didn't play a lot of X-Wing but played a fair mount of Attack Wing.   Not sure what 2015 holds in store.

Infinity - Man has this been a great year.  It even ended big.  I started playing seriously in February after finding a great group in the guys at Games & Stuff.  After getting my head bashed in in every event, I managed to get 1st (with team mate Stephen) in the team tournament and finished their ITS season with a 2nd place finish missing a tie by 1 point. Looking forward to continuing the improvement with ITS2015.

I managed to make it to BOTH NOVA and GenCon.  Man, was they great.  I can honestly say that the beatings at the hands of the G&S crowd has actually helped make me very prepared for both event.  While I won't be back for GenCon this year, I will be at NOVA.  I loved the event and really looking forward to it again.

Laser Cutting - I really enjoy it but I have to say it's a pain in the arse to design items and get time to cut them.  I don't see next year being any better but I can still say cranking out stuff for personal use. 

Moving into 2015 - I am starting a board game night with the kids.  First, up is Zombicide.  Not sure what game will be next but should be fun.

I am behind in my painting (like always).  I haven't touched a brush in almost a month and have been playing a lot of video games.  I need to work on my Secret weapon tiles and get them done.  I also picked up all those Nomads which I think I now want to change their color.  Damn them. 

All in all I can't wait to see what 2015 holds and sharing it with everyone.
