Plan for 2013

Reviewing my performance last year, it’s certainly time to make a major effort on my Medievals. Looking ahead to June, this year big game is Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily 1943, so I expect any work on this front to be just rounding off various bits for my desert collection. The Gauntlet game is yet to be decided, so this is the big unknown; personally I would opt for Tunisia 1943, but who knows? So my main projects will be:

  • Make a medieval Burgundian/German force (carried over from 2011).
  • Sort out the assorted Saracens so I can use Hail Caesar for Crusades games (carried over from 2011).
  • A Jacobite army, mainly of Highlanders, but including some of the possible French reinforcements

Possible projects

  • Upgrade my WW2 Americans – if rumours are correct The Plastic Soldier Company will be releasing Americans this year, so it would fit in with a clear out and general tidy up of my US forces for North West Europe.

Other activities

  • Complete the last bits of the British/US Airborne.
  • Tidy up the last bits of the DAK/8th Army
  • Late French armée d’orient (trying to make a few French demi-brigades with pretty uniforms and pouffes sound posh)
  • German/Italian/Hungarian forces for “Stalingrad” Eastern front winter game.
  • Try and play some large 1813 period Napoleonic games, especially as my armies were originally organised for this and this is the bi-centennial.
  • Attempt to rationalise the stash again - watch my trading lists.

I really like your Egypt/Syria British Napoleonics. I4m looking fwd to your French into Kleber uniform.
Any idea of the ruleset you are going to use ?
Kind regards,

Well planned! Sounds like a busy year ahead. Interested on seeing how the Sicily game pieces come out.
