This year's been particularly interesting for me as far as wargaming (and the wider milieu that accompanies it) is concerned - most notably because of the connections that I've made with several people dotted around the world through either this blog or through their own blogs. Some of these connections have sparked long conversations on the nature of modeling, gaming and painting, as well as some of the finer aspects of GW mythology, whilst others have been more a distant but constant source of inspiration in the breadth and depth of the talent on show, or their relentless output, or their insatiable desire to live a full and interesting life (within the hobby and without). Coupled with some of the excellent chaps at the club and some much older friends, I've been really spoiled for inspiration and discourse.
Migs, Malika, Tony, TamTam, Neil, JRN, James S, izeColt and countless others that I will have accidentally overlooked have really invigorated my thirst for gaming. It's also been a real pleasure to converse with JB. Thanks to you all for doing what you do.
Happy new year and I wish you all a productive and successful 2012.
