2013 was the year of Flames of War and painting for others. I painted a Fallshirmjager army and a French army, repainted my Arab Israeli stuff, played a lot of games and saw the release of the Arab-Israeli rules, Fate of a Nation which I have played quite a bit, even if I didn't take pictures and blog them. I also painted John's Soviets and British paras for Bolt Action and some 15mm Napoleonics (which I sold). For myself, I painted up an Anglo-Danish Warband for SAGA and started the Normans.
|Not even mentioned in this post is the Star Wars project. I'm hoping for many more games of this in 2014.|
1. SAGA - Anglo-Danish, Norman and Viking Warbands of 6 points each, along with the scenery, some civilians and livestock.I've just finished reading Marc Morris' book on the Norman Conquest over the holidays, and I am keyed up for this period. I've also reappraised my view of this era of history. Not quite yay for the Normans, but certainly good riddance to the Godwinesons.
|Normans are the good guys?|
|Probably not going to be one of the good guys...|
|Athena and Ares prepare to face off by letting some mortals do the hard yards.|
|'Tell you what, lets call it a draw...'|
|Ainsty Castings do a wicked Wicker Man and I'm just burning to have one on the tabletop.|
|'Tell you what, let's call it a draw...'|
|'Umm... I dropped a dollar around here somewhere...'|
|The English Civil War was so civilised. Just soldiers standing around watching their dogs growl and bite at each other. No-one tell PETA.|
