Just where do I start. There is just so much out there that I want. It's terrible!
So having seen that Mark has made a pledge about his painting aspirations I thought I'd have a small think about what I intend to do for this year.
Projects that I will work on (note that I don't use the word start or finish):
The Great War - British and German, late war.
Colonial Conquests - Colonial British versus the uncivilised. I have Zulu's at present but want to consider Mhadists and Indian Mutiny (which is just a bit earlier that Victorian Colonial conquests).
Anima Tactics - I'll pick away at these. I'm actually painting some of these at present to break up the workload of commissions.
Urban War - Another skirmish system.
Warzone - I'm actually going to go back to this system and pick up where I left off. I'm even thinking of dropping the old figures into the stripper and redo them. God my old style of painting sucked.
Hordes - Trollbloods and Circle I think, but only a small selection rather than going the whole hog and getting the lot.
Warheads - I'll continue to collect and paint these. I love the miniatures and the humour really appeals to me.
War Rocket - I need opponent ships for my single fleet, so I'll pick up the Saucer chaps in due course.
Kings of War - thankfully my WFB armies transfer across and I'll just pick up a few of the warmachine and possible the Khaos Dwarves when they come out.
Aeronautica Imperialis - I must get some Imperial ships to fight my Eldar.
Malifaux - Will continue to collect what comes out.
Uncharted Seas - Just my Thanaris Elves and Iron Dwarves.
Dystopian Wars - As much as I can get.
Hmmmm----- there seems to be quite a lot that's going to happen this year. I'm still thinking my WWII and Moderns.
On top of that I still have my commissions to do.
I'll be running a few tournaments this year.
The only thing that will hold me up is my health. At present I'm not well. My doctors don't come back from hols until Tuesday, but I think I can hold on till then. After that, who knows. I confess that this year is going to be a difficult one for me. The pain is really starting to affect my ability to focus, and where my painting has previously helped me cope, it's not working at present. So doctor's next week, and the rest is in the lap of fate...
