Plan for 2018

This years major project will be Tricorne rebasing, basically covering all my Seven Years War and American War of Independence armies, this is ambitious - around 2,000 figures, but hopefully it should just be "cosmetic" as I won't be physically changing the units or bases.

Painting/Modelling - moderate sized projects
  • Napoleonics - carried over from 2017. I've got quite a pile of figures (mainly cavalry) available to replace/upgrade some of my oldest units. Plus Spanish infantry, Polish infantry, French artillery and Russian Guard artillery
  • Egypt 1800 - adding more French, British and Ottoman troops to my existing armies, probably by doubling up the existing units.
Smaller projects
  • WW2 Ardennes - finishing off various bits
  • WW2 North Africa - expanding my US forces to cover North Africa by adding Stuarts, Lees and any other new units that the new Battlegroup book might require.
  • WW2 eastern front - extending my winter Russians for late war winter warfare, mainly by adding tanks.
  • Some desert sand-dunes/wadi sides - carried over from 2017
  • Various houses to add to my Eighteenth Century town, including a model of my daughter's house - carried over from 2017
  • Need to create those Renaissance galleys - carried over from 2017 - any useful ideas welcomed
  • Adding some Highland regiments to my SYW British, also for use against the Jacobites!
  • Plus a number of bits to fill in odd gaps in existing armies
Gaming

  • Continue to support the Lance & Longbow Society games at various shows
  • Nothing decided yetfor the SOTCW game at Gauntlet
  • We plan to hold a big battlegroup event in May, so I may be a major contributor to the terrain and troops needed - this event is still in the discussion stage.
  • I need to organise one or two large games, one SYW and another to be decided, hopefully my rebasing will be an incentive.
  • Again try to get to Crisis in Antwerp
