This will be my last post of 2016. Which is a good thing since today is December 31st 2016 and tomorrow is 2017. Having had a look back at the top images, the top search hits (and the bottom ones too), and the most popular pages of the year, I thought I'd jot down a few items that I'm going to do next year on this blog.
Firstly, we are absolutely going to continue with the Horus Heresy reviews. They are by far the most visited pages from this past year and its clear there is a hunger in the community for more 30k gaming articles. So those are going to continue. That said, I've now finished all the big black Horus Heresy books and am awaiting the release of Inferno before continuing the unit reviews.
In 2017, I plan on reviewing the Genestealer Cult codex before Inferno is released. Since the early days of my involvement in the hobby, Genetealers and their cults have loomed large alongside Space Hulk and I've long been looking forward to this codex. Hence its overdue that I should review it in all its glory.
Collecting and painting will continue with a focus on my growing Alpha Legion forces and some new purchases that I got recently. More on that at a later point.
Gaming: there's going to be a local kill team style tournament early in 2017 that I'm personally looking forward to. It'll be 300 points per team following a slightly modified version of kill team modelled on the old kill zone rules set that was worked out ages ago. Not quite sure whether I'll play Alphas or Genestealers at this point, but it should be fun!
There will be a few roleplaying games articles along the way as usual and various war-games gallery articles from both my own games, other locations, and Warhammer World images and videos that I simply haven't had time to process or upload just yet.
If the opportunity presents itself, I'll also continue doing the "mystery shopper" at Games Workshops that I visit during my travels. That said, if anyone wishes to write a guest review of a Games Workshop from around the nation (or other nations: I currently have the UK and Australia on this blog), then I'd be happy to talk to you (email me at the link at the top).
Requests for army lists, analysis, commissions and so forth are also welcome; again please feel free to email.
