Maybe start the Tyrolese Rebels - not only started, all but done!
Make a dent in the Macedonian and Great Italian Wars lead pile - no progress whatsoever
I also added to my Punic Wars forces, plus 2 units of Highlanders and 1 of Nassauers - both also mentioned in the 2018 planning post. .
Avoid starting any New Projects - done

There were 87 posts in 2018, down from most of the past 5 years (all time high is 100), but still averaging a little less than one post every 4 days. For what little it is worth in the bot era, page views should exceed 1 Million in the 1st quarter of 2019.
No new projects undertaken, no new rules sets tried. Several new sets acquired, though.
