My first blog post was yesterday in 2011, so four years have passed since then (and 160,000 hits). (I prebuilt this post and something happened and it didn't update properly; sorry Mordian7th for your comment!). Quite a trip and over four hundred posts. I started Warhammer 40k sometime in 2007, so it has been 8 years. I've gone from being quite immersed in gaming aiming for a game a week, and being an active administrator of a popular online warhammer forum, to stepping back and involving myself in the hobby and the background eschewing gaming almost completely. So 8 years and 10-ish armies later, I've focussed my gaming more toward x-wing, Armada and primarily boardgames with large social components and 4+ players. It's been quite a ride. We'll see where the next year brings me. For now I thought I'd post up a terminator librarian I converted and painted 6 years ago (2009) and juxtapose it with a terminator librarian I converted and painted this year to show the evolution of my painting style. I was super happy with the first terminator at the time and while I managed to stay within the lines, I've learned a lot since then and hopefully can still learn more.
