So what's in store for 2013? I am planning to not make any wargames purchases at all this year - with the possible exception of the 'Maurice' rules - from what I have seen, on blogs and elsewhere, plus the reviews, it provides a very nice robust and fun game. I would really like to put my 6mm WSS on the table, and while I have Polemos for these, or could use Horse Foot & Guns, Maurice looks like it might be a winner.
[Edit] - ok, just bought them - I really have very little self-control, and the Brigade Games New Years offer got me 10% off plus flat rate $15 international shipping - [/Edit]
The other exception might be materials for my terrain building, and probably some decent storage containers for completed minis so they can sit happily on shelves, and I can dump the weird assortment of cardboard boxes.
As for painting, no hard and fast schedule as yet, but I am thinking that I should actually finalise some of the half-finished projects, as at least then, I can see real progress. I expect the next few things to get done will be:
- Finish the Sui Chinese for DBMM (required for Cancon in 24 days time..)
- Complete the bases on my Houstons Ships
- Finish the WSS British
- Get paint onto my SAGA Vikings and Scots
- Complete the Late War 6mm Germans for BKCII
- Make up some new terrain
- 15mm Sci-Fi - two forces for Tomorrows War
- 15mm Modern, finish up the US and Insurgent forces.
After that, all bets are off. And I plan to try and do a few DBA armies as well, for amusement. I have perhaps thirty unpainted ones sitting around, so perhaps an army between each other project. They should only take a week or so for each, so I could get quite a few done in a year.
We shall see.. but I am determined that 2013 will be the year where I paint more than I buy!
Happy New Year to one and all.
