As of the 31st of January, this blog will have been active for one year. This also marks my first year of DBA! Here are some things from the past year:
- I painted seven armies, beginning with my Marian Romans, who achieved a glorious 9-2-1 record with one tournament win. NKE & Byzantines were started, but are on hold for the moment.
- I played 81 one-on-one games of DBA, culminating with a record of 58 wins, 21 losses, and 2 draws.
- I won 3 tournaments.
- With Philistinejim’s help, we managed to get a regular DBA game day organized.
- I went to my first Historicon and Fall In!
- Paul Hannah and Philistinejim got me addicted to vintage Mike’s Models 15mm figs.
- 44,300+ hits in one year! High traffic on the blog convinced me to buy the thedbagamer.com URL.
- I GM’d 3 tournaments:NOWS Minicon, NOWSCON, Matched Pairs at Fall In!
- The blog was featured on the Miniatures Page.
- I wrote a getting started guide that has received almost 5,000 views.
- I learned to play BBDBA!
- I started reading more history books. Arrian, Thucydides, and the like, are always handy.
- Last, but not least, I have made some great friends!
A hearty “Thank you!” goes out to everyone who comes here!
Coming up: I found my tripod, so I’ll be posting more pics of Andy’s figs and stuff that is unfinished (started on in the Fall, but unfinished due to the commission).
