Continued the good progress from Q1 and my total painted stands at 1,394 items
  • WSS 432
  • Ancients 334
  • WW2 252
  • Modern 197
  • Napoleonic 67
  • Colonial 64
  • AWI 26
  • Terrain 22

Compared to plan
I’ve decided to concentrate on five main painting/modelling themes this year, quite a bit is based on new and forthcoming releases:
  • Complete rework of my Vietnam War collection by integrating the new figures from Orion - started with the newly released figures from orion and waiting for more
  • War of Spanish Succession - French infantry and cavalry plus British cavalry, plus more as Strelets release them - Well underway with these, most of the infantry are now painted and about to start on the cavalry. I'm also waiting to see what Strelets next release will bring
  • WW2 Japanese for Battlegroup Pacific - not started, I acquired one pack as part of a job lot of figures
  • Rebase my Early Imperial Romans - these are the last ancients that I haven't upgraded - Completed
  • Napoleonics, Prussian cavalry, reworking old artillery limbers, Russian peasants for skirmish scenarios, more Spanish cavalry, potentially upgrade British infantry? - completed the Prussian cavalry and Russian peasants in Q1 nothing done since

Then a host of minor themes in order of preference rather than importance:
  • WW2 SAS & LRDG. - Completed
  • More "Three Musketeers", especially once the new Redbox mounted figures are available. - not started, although I have bought these lovely new figures
  • Colonials - Boer Artillery and French Foreign Legion in camp and 37mm. - Completed
  • TYW Imperial Croatians/Polish Pancerni/Cossack horse archers/Russian hussars. - not started
  • More British and Jacobite for the 45, WAS and SYW, when Redbox release more figures. - not started, still waiting
  • Medievals - Scottish shiltron, Revolting Peasants (Zvezda), other odd units for Montgisard. - not started
  • SYW Austrian infantry (Roth - Wurtzberg) - not started
  • Revolution Cisialpine Infantry - three or four 12 figure units. - not started
  • The terrain I have failed to make for the last two years. - Vines completed, started on some Russian fences

Then if time permits:
  • More WW2 German cold weather infantry - 2 platoons. - not started
  • Rework/Rebase Zulu War forces. - not started

I’m not making any plans for gaming, but once the show circuit starts I’ll try to get to as many as possible. Plus Crisis Point in April and a possible 2021 Big Game. Crisis in Antwerp would be a big attraction if it goes ahead Shows still seem a way off, but at least my local clubs at Airbus and now Elton have got going
