You know how sometimes things are hard to judge. So far this month has been no exception. Why well let’s try to sum things up.
As those of you who follow this blog may have realised, I have painted a lot of minis so far this year. But not this month. After painting those Tau earlier on I wanted to begin with my Brandenburg Infantry, but could not get myself motived. So I spend about a week cleaning up my remaining Tau and ever since the Brandenburger have been idling along. So I would count that as the first failure.
What else… well this Saturday, this blog celebrated its first birthday. Over those two years this blog has managed to accumulate 150 followers and nearly 150.000 hits. I would call that a success.
But as you may realise… today is Tuesday and I have only gotten around to mention it today. Why? Well I had been planning to celebrate this in some way, but did not find the time to organize something in due time. But I do not want to let you go without, so I think I shall organize a little give away over the next few days. So once we hit the 150K I will announce the prices and how to enter the draw. So this miht be somewhere in between.
But what was the biggest failure? Well you might remember my new years resolution, not to buy any new minis year. Well I failed that big time. First up there was a smallish order with Eureka minis. Mostly some additional Marines, some SeALs and some Napoleonic vignettes that Martin is going to pick up for me at Salute this weekend. I could have justified that, since on aggregate these would have been less than those minis I ordered last year but had the order cancelled on me. But then there were the new Tau I bought to expand my cadre with. Those would have ruined my New Years pledge for good already, but I could still top that. Thanks to Kickstarter I discovered that there was one for Warzone, a game I completely loved about a decade ago. All the renders they showed were so good that I ended up pledging for a level where I would get everything shown and released during the Kickstarter (which actually started to feel like stealing the way the Kickstarter became a runaway train yesterday). I think this annihilated my resolution for good.
But I have to say… that Kickstarter has been phenomenal and I will be receiving some pretty marvellous come August. At least this can be counted as a failure, since I got a pretty good deal. These here just being some of my favourites.
BTW… the one thing that does nothing for me (I am not the Cyborg type) is Cybertronic. So anyone interested in a complete set, including the Kickstarter exclusives… drop me a line.
So how shall I class April so far… Success or Failure?
