Briscon. I do enjoy showing off the game and the stuff that I work on.
There wasn't a lot else: four games of To the Strongest and two games of Force on Force.
Blogging was up and down this year: the motivation really lagged in the second half of the year. But an average of one post a week is fairly solid.
Painting: least to most.
A couple of Battlefront Germans.
Perry Wars of the Roses.
And the pile of shame: stuff purchased but not painted.
What's in store for 2017? As always, we shall wait and see. Ideas at the moment:
- It looks like we could be doing a Pulp Alley Wars of the Roses campaign at the club, so expect to see more of this.
- A couple of mates are talking a 15mm Normandy campaign (thus the two Germans above).
- The sci fi will definitely keep happening - so many miniatures to paint and ideas bubbling away!
- I painted quite a bit of Russian Civil War in 2014, but it never really got traction. The main issue, I think, was rules. Tried Red Actions, which are good rules, but a bit slow-moving for what I'm looking for. But I picked up Osprey's The Men Who Would Be Kings, thinking it might be adaptable. A month later, I found someone else on the web who'd done exactly the same thing, so this might have some legs!
Well, if you've read that far, happy new year!
