Quick half year review

Yes, over half the year has passed by already, so I thought I'd better do a quick progress check

Major Projects (at least 100 figures, month or more in effort)

  • I’ve committed to produce the terrain for one of the tables for this year’s big game, which covers the Allied landings in Sicily 1943. This will mean quite a lot of terrain construction, but at least I can still use the buildings from the SOTCW Achse & Avalanche game from 2009
  • Completed, but it was quite a lot of work
  • Axis winter forces – German/Italian/Hungarian (from 2014 plan)
  • Nearly completed, but I keep adding extra bits to the force
  • Finish the Jacobites, by adding French and Lowland units (from 2014 plan)
  • Not yet started

Minor Projects (in no particular order)

  • Saracen cavalry and a few more archers
  • Not yet started
  • Crusader cavalry
  • Not yet started
  • HYW/WOTR English add some cavalry and a few more infantry
  • Not yet started
  • Cossacks – expand the force mixing in some Wallachians (Lucky Toys Vlad Tepes set) to add some variety
  • Not yet started
  • Ancient German Warbands
  • Not yet started
  • Some Assorted Ancient Light Troops to fill in various gaps in my armies
  • Not yet started
  • Russian Partisans
  • Not yet started
  • Carried over from 2014 is a British Desert Motor Battalion, plus transport and an Infantry battalion
  • Completed
  • Upgrade my WW1 East African Germans with the new HaT figures
  • Not yet started

Other activities

  • Refight Ligny from 1815 (everyone else is doing Waterloo)
  • It's happening this weekend
  • The stash is still far too big; I want to get it down from six storage boxes to five by the time we move. In line with this, I plan to complete as many plastic kits as possible, there are over 40 there at present so completing these should free up one box at least.
  • I thought it was reducing, but I filled it up again when Plastic Soldier Company had a sale
  • Continue the attempt No new armies until after we move – will be quite difficult to achieve if plastic figure manufacturers bring out something tempting.
  • So far so good

Will that is amazingly prolific. The terrain for the big game looked really good.
