1) Painting:A) Job one is completing my British Napoleonic Army. I have 3 units of Dragoons/Dragoon Guards on the table, after that some Foot Artillery batteries and three more Light cavalry units. Then a single unit of Highlanders, probably Perry (which I will have to order) and a few more command figures, and this army is pretty much DONE. Aside from perhaps the highlanders, I hope to finish these by the end of 2016.
B) Ancients is probably the next priority,. with that huge Macedonian Army, some more Numidians for my Carthaginian army, and some more General figures being the main areas of focus. I can also add some more cavalry and Chariots to my Assyrians if I feel like it. And there is an entire small army of Ancient Syrian types to be allies or enemies to my Egyptians, donated to me by Ken Baggaley, that need refurbishment and basing upgrades, and some that need painting. That should take relatively little time... once I set to it.
C) No lack of other distractions, but at present no pressing need or draw to add to my Late Medieval or Renaissance forces... but that could change!
A) Resume the "Lannes" Napoleonic campaign with Barry
B) Play test the in-development ECW rules based on To the Strongest! (This month, probably solo, at least the first time)
Table set up, ready for the scenario Simon included, The Battle of Montgomery, 1644. This will be familiar as the scenario Jon used for his three ECW rules play tests as well!
My Parliamentary Army has been languishing in its storage boxes for far too long.
Likewise my Royalist Army!
c) Whatever else arises... Joe and I need to get together for a game again, and also Jared and company.
A) work on a Snappy Nappy Campaign booklet project
B) Develop new rules for my 15mm Renaissance Galleys and play test by the end of this year
4) Convention Games
A) The only convention under consideration for the rest of 2016 is Ellis Conn, held in November in Danielson, CT; that will depend upon my call schedule and energy level. If I run a game there, it will be a "small" game with either Field of Battle, Snappy Nappy, or To the Strongest!
Not much planned, but there is this sale from Murawski: Don't forget our 'buy 5 packs get 2 free' special offer! This will run until the end of August.
This is quite an important offer as I have some great news! Paul Hicks has started work on the Polish Imperial Guard Battalion and we've found a new sculptor to work on finishing the Baden range. If this works out we'll also be looking at some other new figures.
