Good riddance 2020!
I’ve heard it said that you can’t really lose at frostgrave as your wizard gains experience no matter what, even if your wizard dies you gain experience yourself on how to play better next time.
You did however come bloody close lol :)
I joke of course, but I think we can all agree on
“Good riddance 2020”

Not going to bother listing my catalogue of failures. So what went right.

I did build a flat pack kit out of plasti-card and bulkheads. A recreation of the old cardboard Imperial firebase. Funny thing is I stumbled on this site when I searched for firebase scan pdf. Back when I was sort of getting back into things and realised I owned a number of bulkheads. Only joined so I could download it out the vault. Decided to stick around for the company.

I kept up my grognard status and went boo hiss at most of GWs new stuff.
Of course there is also some bits I like.

And one I didn't list but added in my own inventory. Was to not buy White Dwarf magazine.

I purchased a bunch of stuff that would of contributed to many of my other aims.
Whether that is a step in the right direction or just adding to the pile o' shame. I'll let 2021 decide.

Hoo boy. Well the silver lining is that I (still) needn't fear running out of models. And I built far more in 2020 than I had realised - if only that had been my goal.

I've ended up painting only 10 models this year, and trading away 17 more. Which means that my backlog has grown by precisely 200 miniatures and a dozen scenery kits. It's been a long time since I acquired so much in one year, but then it's been an unusual trip around the sun.

Not sure yet if I'll try the same resolution for this coming year, or whether a more project-focussed set of goals might be a better move.

Belatedly get in my wife's pi-rats and our flat-pack terrain, and kick off this PAST year's Mordheim anniversary campaign. Rat King's Pi-rats versus the Three Ghosts warbands [plus everybody else's warbands too].


Update! As folks can see in the Mordheim sub-forum, this one has happened before the end of the year! Huzzah!

Let’s see;

Trollholme - Completed! Whoop.
HMS Phoenix, Junker and Capitan Orangebeard - Check.
Attend Tribemeet - Boo damn Covid!!
3x3 Frostgrave Table, Train etc - whilst I didn’t build this I did build a 2x4 Sump City and Harbour so I’m counting this as mission creep and therefore complete......
Later vague promises about weight loss - Boo damn Covid! Although we do now have a home gym that I use occasionally.

That’s 3/5 or 66%!!! better than most years!

Oooo turns out I’ve also made the 3x3 Frostgrave Table in the month following the above!!

Did I mention I’ve also won the FYSC, the MRMC and been 1st loser in a couple of Yak Comps this year? It’s something I’m very modest about so you might not have realised 😘

I'm still hopeful that the gf and I will manage a game or two sometime over the Christmas period. So long as we do, then this year is likely no worse - and perhaps even better - than last year's pitiful total.

A final update to my 2020 targets. We did manage two games over Christmas - one on Christmas day and the other on NYE (which has actually become something of a tradition for us anyway). So, that takes me to five games all year, including one solo play-through.

I hope to better that this year, on which note I've started a thread for 2021 resolutions, for those that were asking above. It can be found here: https://yaktribe.games/community/threads/happy-new-yak-resolutions-for-2021.10952/
