Plans for 2016

Another year, another plan. Looking back at last year's and previous years performance, I always over-estimate how many topics I can cover. This is usually because I almost always add extra items in, so although the total items turned out is on plan the number of topics is not. Still I'm not letting that effect this year's plan.

For those interested in my "high" output, this is because I'm retired, my daughters are settled, so I have the time to devote to my hobby.

Onto my plan:

Painting/Modelling (all moderate sized projects)

  • Terrain - only a few bits needed like new hedges are needed, but I'm tempted to produce some proper winter terrain to go with my figures
  • Saracen cavalry and a few more archers (cf 2015)
  • Crusader cavalry (cf 2015)
  • HYW/WOTR English add some cavalry and a few more infantry (cf 2015)
  • Five Ancient German Warbands (18 strong) (cf 2015)
  • Some Assorted Ancient Light Troops to fill in various gaps in my armies (cf 2015)
  • Russian Partisans (cf 2015)
  • Upgrade my WW1 East African Germans with the new HaT figures (cf 2015) - really must do this!
  • Some extra Russians and Romanians for my WW2 winter games
  • More woodland Indians so I can fight more French & Indian War games
  • Plus a number of bits to fill in gaps in existing armies
  • It looks like I won't need to produce anything for this years big game and my Lentini terrain will get another outing
  • One of the days at Gauntlet will be a Korsun pocket game, so I may need some terrain for this.
  • I'll also try and organise a big SYW game for one of the Deeside Defenders gaming weekends

Finally I'll continue the attempt to reduce the size of my stash!
