Greetings from a proud new papa! Lydia Grace was born on 11/7 and is absolutely awesome. I've been off on paternity leave for the last several weeks and while actual time to hobby has been limited, time spent thinking about hobbying has not!
2012 was a big hobby year for yours truly. Back in January, our gaming group started up a slow grow league for Warmahordes. I started with Grayle the Farstrider and went to work. Over the next few months I played a lot of games, branching out to other Circle casters, until finally winning a local Steamroller with Grayle and pKrueger. I also took eKaya to a tier list tournament where I definitely didn't win. Warmahordes continued at full tilt in the garage with gaming happening almost every week.
Pathfinder was the other game of choice as always. This year saw three campaigns played at various frequency. Our main group is currently three modules in to the Curse of the Crimson Throne adventure path and loving every minute.
I think I played one game of 40k in there somewhere...
Video games saw the end of several years of World of Warcraft, a short torrid affair with Diablo 3, an incredibly dissappointing run at Star Wars: the Old Republic and then a return to Guild Wars and migration into Guild Wars 2 which has died off with the baby's arrival as I've fallen back to xbox.
In 2012 I painted 90 models. I'm pretty proud of that number. Lots of Circle Orboros models and a few Cygnar ending the year with my drow themed Retribution.
So... time for my Top 3s!
