In this time of ‘highlights of the decennium’ appearing left and right in the media, I would just like to point out that the current decennium (if we define that as the first ten years of the century) ends on 31st December 2010, not 2009. So there.
With that bit of pedantry out of the way, allow me to wish all visitors and readers of this blog a prosperous, productive and shiny 2010, a year wherein all your dice will roll high (or low, depending), your armies will grow and you finally get to complete that one project.
For me, here’s my very high level plan for 2010 — the 2010 project list as you might say:
- Great Northern War — the idea is still to put on Poltava at Crisis in autumn. For the figures, an initial goal will be a playable game by early spring, and build from there. This is my primary project
- Napoleonic 28mm Bavarians — I plan on steadily building up my (currently one battalion large) Bavarian army. Initial goal is a playable force by summer (although the single finished battalion has already seen its first game).
- Romani Plastici — 28mm plastic Romans. I currently have 3 legionary and 1 auxilia unit finished. The idea is to build this to a full army, with the initial goal being a 1000 to 1500 point force by spring.
- Napoleonic 28mm French — these will be the refurbished ones from the Crisis bring & buy, plus the results of various Foundry sales over the past few months. There is no initial goal with these, just building the occasional unit here and there
- ‘Gimmick’ projects — all the rest. Things like the Orc Uncharted Seas fleet, the 6mm Future Wars stuff, … No set goal with these, so they will probably be painted in preparation for specific games.
What’s everybody else’s plan?
