Quick update

No pictures with this post. Just an update on my plans for 2011. So far I managed to finish my 15mm ACW forces for Gettysburg http://therebelyell-scotty.blogspot.com/ We have a practice game arranged for mid March to have a run through of the rules. Mick and Mike have been working on adapting Fire and Fury to hexes, so looking forward to that.

So far this year I have been digging around in some of my old figures that never got painted. Many of these are GW fantasy figures from anything up to 20 years old. I've been picking out random figures and giving them a lick of paint.So far Skaven Beastmen, Minotaurs and Imperialist have received my attention. The latest figure is an old GW Nightmare Dragon. I painted this when I was about 15, not the best, but it was then broken after a fall from the shelf. I had stripped the paint but never got around to re building it. Bits of green stuff later and voila.

Projects for 2011

Greeks - I've got some figures from 1st Corps and Immortal Miniatures. Approx 70 figures, will look good as a mercenary force. Always loved to have a hoplite force.

ECW - Got a box of the Warlord plastic infantry, along with some other figures I've got lying around, this should give me 1 infantry regiment, 1 horse squadron, a dragoon company, backed up with 1 cannon and a mortar. Not huge amounts but the original plan was for a number of club members to each paint up a small force which could then be combined for larger games (you fought with what you had)

ACW - I want to paint up the last of my 15mm ACW figures for the Western Theatre. There is enough for a division each of union and rebs.

EL Cid - I've already got quite a large force already of Christians and Andalusian (6,000pts for WAB). The thought was to put on a display game at the Border Reiver show in Newcastle. Mainly putting together the boards and other terrain.

No doubt their will be numerous new goodies that will be released this year and tempt me away from my plans.
