It began with painting some West German Leopards. I decided that it was time to really get into Team Yankee. At the same time I have been painting Craig's Soviets, and really enjoying this. So needless to say, the West German army has been expanded and is now my priority project as my small gaming circle gets more excited about playing Team Yankee.

Goodbye Frederick the Great, hello Wellington
At Christmas I began to consider that I wanted to play Napoleonics, particularly the Peninsular War. In order to make sure that all figures are the same company I like to try to buy big projects all at once. You never know when companies might go belly-up or the exchange rate drops suddenly. So to fund this I thought of selling the Seven Years War collection. Upon returning home from holiday I changed my mind, thinking that I'd put so much work into the 7YW collection that I really shouldn't part with it, even if there was another similar period that I liked better. Then I reappraised the situation a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't resist the call of the Peninsula any longer and to make a long story short have sold the 7 Years War collection and already reinvested in the Peninsula. All done, can't take it back now.

This of course means the end of the Seven Years War campaign and of the Zorndorf anniversary project. In its place? Well I doubt I'll get the Napoleonics finished by the end of the year. An ACW campaign, on the other hand, is a distinct possibility, and I might try and get more DBA armies painted. But no firm plans. That is what I'm giving up on. I'm just going to paint stuff when I feel like it, and not put any pressure on getting any particular thing completed. Of course, my Team Yankee West Germans are to be finished by the end of this month, so short term goals are all good.
