2018 feels like it’s been a good year hobby wise with the various project moving forward. The blog has had 50 posts which is about average and has sneaked past 500,000 hits as well in the last few weeks.
For shows I attended York, ran games at Hammerhead & The Other Partizan , with another visit over to Antwerp and Crisis , rounded off with gaming at Battleground. The lead mountain has been topped up ready for a lot more additions this coming year .
The Old Guard group met pretty much monthly getting games in, and I had James , Martin and Scotty over at mine a number of times playing modems , WW2 and Wings of War.
The gaming highlight was finally running the big Sudan game at Marks Wargames Holiday Centre - it will be back there again in May 19.
Seeing 5 years of hard work come to fruition - and everyone enjoy themselves was great - roll on the next big visit to the Sudan in May 19
The 6mm modern project is essentially completed - odd bits n bobs as required - it had about 6 games in the year.
The WW2 Normandy project has about completed phase 1 , with the US armoured forces just needing a last bit of infantry adding. Next up is the D Day assault units and landing craft. Phase 3 is US Paratroops. There is still a lot more terrain to do for this too. - I hope to get a D- Day game up and running with James and Martin by May at Partizan. Again we managed a number of games this year.
The slow burn that is the ACW project continues , I now have two Union brigades and one Confederate - with the lead for one of each in 2019
The Cowboys had a run out at Hammerhead in 2018 - it was good to get them out again .
a start of year left field new entrant was WW2 Wings of War - it will be back in 2019
December saw Cruel Seas enter the fray - there will be a few additions - I want/need a big ship!
|so far its RN 3 - Kreigsmarine 0|
reading that back - it has been a good year!
Next up is a participation game at Hammerhead with Martin , James and Scotty - Pulp 1930s South Sea islands peril!
So - all the the very best for the New Year..
