While I was sick about six months ago, I wrote a blog entry describing my various projects and how I was getting on with them. Given that the War Room mission is getting bogged down in minutia there hasn't been quite so much work done as I'd hoped, but I thought I'd have a look at how things are going after six months.
Memoir '36 - MISSION DISCRETIONARY
I have a few more figures collected, including two Vickers light tanks and a beautiful Rolls Royce Armoured Car. However, actual games are proving somewhat elusive. Definitely one that will have to wait until I have the War Room up and running.
Memoir '44 in 1/72 - MISSION CONTINUING
Definite progress has been made on this project. The British infantry are done and I've collected sufficient British armour to do the first part of the Memoir '44 Normany campaign. I just have to finished painting the armour and get the War Room up and running.
Since then we've also played one complete Memoir '44 campaign, The Tears of Vercours Campaign.
Command & Colours: Napoleonic - The Rajah of Kalaah-Akaata - MISSION CONTINUING
What's interesting about this is that the project has changed and I've started playing these games using "The Sword and the Flame". It's worked well so far, but is going to be relatively slow unless I get the table in the War Room up and running.
You can have a look at our first battle here.
For Honour & Glory - The War of 1812 - MISSION ABORTED
With so many other interesting projects - I think we can safely say this project has gone for its tea.
Command & Colours: Napoleonics - Dollying up - MISSION COMMENCED
This is proceeding relatively well. I have two diorama pieces in the works and the playsheets are done, so all in all I'm happy with how it's gone.
Command & Colours: Napoleonics - The Russians - MISSION CONTINUING
With almost all the infantry and guns taken care of and substantial progress made on the cavalry, I'm quietly confident about being able to write this one up as completed before the end of the year.
Command & Colours: Napoleonics - The Austrians - MISSION CONTEMPLATED
These will be out before the end of the year, so I will be making a start on them. But no solid progress so far.
Command & Colours: Napoleonics - The Prussians - MISSION PIPEDREAM
I do not believe we will see these this year, so on hold for the time being.
Sharpe Practice - MISSION ABORTED
I've heard very good things about Sharpe Practice, but there's only so much time I can spend gaming and so many games I can play, so I don't think that it's realistic to expect that there will be any games of this sort this year.
So solid progress made on most fronts and two projects removed from the list.
Of course it wouldn't really be a Wargamers List without there having been a project added.
The Sword and the Flame - MISSION COMMENCED
I have thoroughly enjoyed the games of "The Sword and the Flame" that I've played so far and I'm hoping to do a lot more. The problem is of course, picking a theatre and sticking to it.
Lastly, I would like to wish all my American friends a very happy holiday. I hope that you are able to spend it at home with loved ones and that you have a wonderful time.
I'll leave you with a piece of music that is very close to my heart and that instantly brings your home to my mind - God bless you all.
