Old School Workshop 2nd anniversary

Wow, here we are again...

Two full years. Among the such talented people over the internet that may not be quite an achievement, but for me it is. Indeed it is. You know, the purpose of the blog was just sharing my silly stuff, no pretensions. But whoah, you keep encouraging me everyday to keep on pushing and to reach upper heights of enjoyment.

I never intended to make a strictly 'Oldhammer-oriented' blog, though you can see I have lots of oldish Warhammer. I would make into that lot the recent stravaganza I've started about civilians and scenery. But this year you have also seen my interest in as many board games as I've been able to play, a shy attempt of drawing, different scale minis just for display, of course the whole process of bringing back HeroQuest to life and even a slight intent on moving into modern wargames for actual conflicts.

                        I recently spent my holidays in Greece. You know, admiring some proper, real old school art ;)                              This belongs to a bar in Athens, couldn't but take a pic!
Currently the blog stats say that this is my 192nd post (Wow, has anybody really read all those?) and that there has been 79279 visits (excluding my own, if the blog says the truth) since I started blogging; my readers mostly come from (here it goes the top 5) USA (22334), Spain (17197), UK (9329), France (3755) and Germany (3432). Besides, 119 people have been kind enough to click on that 'follow' button (but I won't call you 'followers', really dislike the word) and some of you are regular partners in crime ;), not only commenting (which is incredibly appreciated, please keep on! And the shy ones, come on too!), but also blogging your own projects, which I find truly inspirational and also keep me up.

So this is nothing but a big thank you for supporting this old school style of having fun wherever we can find it. Now Year Three starts. The ongoing projects will keep on growing and who knows what new crazy stuff will come into the path...

Helm, full ahead!

  1. Happy Anniversary Suber! ^_^ I do believe that the artistic community in general be it miniature painting, drawings, paintings (digital or analog), etc etc is very active in the blogosphere. I guess our natural tendency is to share with and learn from one another. Specifically, your blog is always fun to read and also manages to surprise me with some cool projects. Stay strong in the hobby but most importantly have lots of fun. :)
