My Blog posting has been a bit erratic lately, what with the new job cutting into my spare time and ongoing plumbing issues creating merry hell in the house. So its probably not entirely surprising that a couple of weeks ago Big Lee's Miniature Adventures slipped quietly past its sixth anniversary without my even realising it.
Wow...I would never have guessed back in 2009 that I would still be writing about my hobby in 2015. Admittedly my posting schedule has taken a pounding in recent years and unlike the early days when I would post daily now once or twice a week is about all I can manage. Over the last six years I have written 1453 Posts and as of today the site has garnered 1,659,534 hits (that's a lot of disappointed browsers!). Along the way, and more importantly, I have made countless friends within the wargaming community. Thank you to all the readers of BLMA, your continued support and input keeps me going, even when times have been tough and the gaming muse has been subdued.
So what next for me and for BLMA. Well the new job is still exhausting me and as lunch breaks are something of a myth where I work my hobby time is still seriously curtailed from this time last year. Things are slowly coming back under control and I am determined to shoe-horn in more gaming and painting time over the coming weeks. I've already started by planning out which shows and conventions I will be attending this year and am looking forward to Cavalier in a few weeks time. Needless to say I'll be posting lots of pictures of every event. One thing I am determined to do is restart my 6mm Desert Raiders project and run a game for Posties Rejects sometime in the summer. I still have a squadrons worth of Italian aircraft half painted on my desk from back in October when I started the new job. So this weekend I will - I WILL - be picking up my brush for the first time in weeks and making a concerted effort to get these finished. Such are the plans of mice, men and overworked wargamers....wish me luck!
