Typically, Historicon and my plans for same dominates the Spring and Summer of each year from a gaming perspective, and this year was no different. Similarly, it usually takes me a month after I return before everything is packed back away, and I start to give thought to painting and future projects again!
So what is on the (ever subject to change) agenda for the remainder of 2022?
1) Organize the non Napoleonic portion of my collection better, with labels on the Really Useful boxes holding the troops, so as to minimize time lost searching for the right box.
Having been home on "stay-cation" last week, very good progress has been made on this project.
2) Finish the additions to my Napoleonic Spanish Army.
Well underway, with the Horse Grenadier of Fernando 7 and a unit of Cazadores a Caballo in progress. There will then just be a mule drawn limber to complete.
3) Finish the expansion of my Classical (Mauryan) Indian Army.
The infantry is all done, but there remains Cavalry, Chariots, and Elephants to add.
4) Add more troops to by ECW Scotts Army
There is plenty of lead on hand; most likely next up are some Highlanders.
We played a great Napoleonic game with FoB3 at Jared's new home in Torrington, CT, last month; post forthcoming. Hopefully some more games there as schedules allow.
Run about 1 game a month at my home, likely on Thursday afternoons
Assist with he Snappy Nappy Campaign in a Day event the end of October at The Portal in Manchester, CT
Runa game or two for HMGS Next Gen this Fall

On June 24th 1812 the Grande Armee invaded Russia. It is now late July, and on the southern banks of the River Dwina, the fearless French Marshal Oudinot commanding the II Corp has received orders from Napoleon to protect the northern flank of the invasion, particularly the approach possible at Polotsk, while marching on the city of St. Petersburg miles to the north as well. However, the adventurous Count Wittgenstein and his I Russian Corp have been assigned by General Barclay-de-Tolly, and Czar Alexander to protect all the land in which he operates north of the River Dwina, and defeat the enemy.
