In July I did a mid-year update of where my wargaming plans were at and where they were going. It is really interesting what has happened in the short space of time since then. I've sold some stuff. Quite a bit of stuff actually, including all of the Great Northern War pocket project that I not only painted in record time but played out a whole campaign with. So what does that leave in my cabinets, awaiting their day under the paintbrush?
|Will I fall asleep when I fight the Russians, too?|
French and Russians for the Napoleonic Wars
Union and Confederate troops for the American Civil War
Paraguayans and Brazilians for the War of the Triple Alliance
French and Prussians for 1870.
1/3000 WW1 Naval British and German
|Look at these guys wasting time - I plan to get the battle finished in one hour.|
|Lemberg - I find WWI Eastern Front battles fascinating|
In 28mm I have :
the Star Wars collections.
Lord of the Rings
Batman miniatures game.
This is rounded off with X-Wing.
Alongside this I'm also planning to play a bit of Command and Colours - I have the Ancients, Samurai and Napoleonic versions, and I'd like to add the Great War to that at some point too. The Samurai game is the only one I intend to paint miniatures for, the other two I'll keep as board games.
|Punic Wars and Peninsular War - two of my all time favourite historical campaigns.|
The next post should hopefully be some painted figures although it feels like I still have ages to go with this commission. A solid couple of hours tomorrow and Saturday should do it though.
