So today I'm just going to quickly cover a couple of milestones that have popped up recently! Some time in the last week or so I surpassed two arbitrary milestones that made me quite pleased with myself :). The first was the blog has edged over 100'000 views! This made me a very happy bunny indeed and continues to amaze me that people continue to read my blatherings, so here's to all of you!
Secondly I also crept over 300 published posts, which seems like a silly huge amount to me. It give me equal parts satisfaction and equal parts "take a long hard look in the mirror and question your life decisions" feelings :P. But seriously, I'm very pleased that I still feel this involved and hungry with the hobby. I'm spent a lot of my life jumping between things to fill my spare time, from rock climbing, running, kung fu, computer games, girls etc and I've been going back with the hobby coming up around 3 years now and that is the longest I've ever really stuck with anything since I originally collected Warhammer Fantasy back in the early 90's! So yaaay me!
Other milestones coming up, but long enough away that I don't mind pointing them out, are I am approaching 2'000'000 views on my google plus profile, but much more importantly I am approaching 2'000 comments on my blog. The engagement I get on there is a really important aspect of my hobby as it always pushes me to bigger and better (and occasionally badder) things. So cheers to all of you again!
I was in London the other day as my girlfriend had to collect some paperwork. Unfortunately this would take up the one day off we had together for a few weeks so I decided to go with and we'd make a day of it. We had a lovely day just wandering around and being silly together but as the day came to a close we passed a Games Workshop (or Warhammer Store as it was branded) and my girlfriend decided to buy me a present!
I couldn't see anything that would go with my current armies as I am considering phasing 40k out of my hobby to focus on 30k so told her I was OK and explained why. She shrugged and told me to get something just to paint then. Quick as a flash I had this off the shelf!
I've admired this monster for some time, but due to Age of Sigmar and all the general belly aching going on over there I had steered clear of starting a fantasy army but now I have my General...
That's all for today, more reviews and hobby progress incoming though :)
