I trust everyone had an enjoyable New Year and I have seen a significant number of colleagues outline their plans and projects for the coming year.
Like many I don't see 2012 being any easier than last but to me that gives the opportunity to focus on what I have and make some progress, whilst I dont intend to start anything new I know its foolish to say I wont, Sails of Glory and Mongoose Publications promise of resin WW1 ships already get the gaming juices flowing, what I have promised is that it will be a cost neutral year I can only spend what I earn from the hobby so that's the incentive.
My next Regiment of my Imagination is almost complete the 25th Albion Foot just awaits its 3 drummers, I am quite pleased with the progress 16 hat men and the command, standards etc all done over the festive period.
In addition I've roughed out a time table as follows;
January is clear to be spent clearing whats on the table.
February - Zulu Colonial
March - finish off my 28mm EIR Romans
April - 6mm month (could be finishing off FPW or doing some Napoleonics)
May - 15mm WWII desert
June - Update 28mm AWI. I have figures that need rebasing, touching up and quite a few still need painting.
July - free month!
August - finish basing my 10mm Market Garden armies in the hope of starting a mini campaign in September
September -15mm Ancients.
I haven't gone beyond that as I reckon the above may not go according to plan but its a start.
Gaming wise had my first last night at the local club - Big Battle DBA trying out the new version 3 which I have to say I quite enjoyed even though my poor Roomans received a good drubbing at the hands of the Carthaginians.
Any way until next time.
