2014 Year in Review

Party Troll is back, here to wish you a Happy New Year.

Party, party!
All in all, it wasn't a bad year. Just not a great one, for several reasons. I saw my hobby time shrivel. Work picked up in a big way, and school demanded a lot more of my attention than I anticipated. I worked on lots of projects but didn't finish as many as I wanted.

Luckily, I was able to go to most of the major events I wanted to attend. I had a fantastic time at Adepticon 2014, and I will be going again in 2015. I'm very much looking forward to my "mini vacation".NOVA Open was on par with previous years, but I might be skipping 2015. It's nothing personal against NOVA, that is just shaping up to be a really tumultuous (and expensive) time of the year for me. For events in 2015, it looks like just Adepticon and Historicon for me.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to do much more playing than last year. 2010 and 2011 were big years for me, table time-wise. But life's gotten a lot crazier since then. I hope I can scare up enough practice time before Adepticon, particularly for Saga which I haven't played in too long.

Most exciting, though, it that I'm starting a commission painting service. The last quarter I did several commissions and had a lot of fun doing it. So I'll be making it an official business this year, hopefully in the next month or so all of that will be finalized. Still have to think up a decent name to register, though. I'll make a formal announcement and add a page to the site once it's official.

Lastly, my 2014 Daemonette is a WIP. I have had some personal things going on and haven't been feeling much like painting. She's about halfway there, so hopefully in another week she'll be done.

I don't really have any hobby goals this year other than to paint some more models. There's just too much up in the air right now for me to have any idea what hobby projects I really want to accomplish this year.

I hope you have a lovely and productive 2015.


  1. Nowt wrong with a loose scheme. I went a bit overboard with the resolutions and the plans and the schemes last year and it backfired quietly over a period of months: "paint more" is the kind of thing I'm going for in 2015 as well. :)

  2. Hopefully we can both meet that goal.
