With the new year looming it is time to plan the year ahead. As in previous years this will be broken down into Battles, Campaigns and Painting/modelling.
There is one new project, the Battle of Trebia from the 2nd Punic Wars. An old favourite period of mine and given added impetus from the LittleWars TV episode.
There will almost certainly be more from the various projects (see "My Collections and Projects" tab above which will be regularly updated) and those listed below will be priorities.
Early Imperial Roman 16th Legion v Ancient British Trinovantes tribe in East Anglia.
2nd Punic War - Battle of Trebia (Both sides need painting so 50:50 if achieved this year).
Battle of Chewton Mendip.
Looking further out I hope to play some of the more well known battles, the first being Edgehill. It is unlikely to be in the coming year but is a possibility depending on how fast I can paint the additional figures required!
Battle of Talavera - Peninsular War project. Over the past month I have made good progress painting the Spanish force required. I have several allied units to paint for the French but this battle is now a probability for this coming year.
Battle of Tourane - Campaign Dutch v French. This, in all probability, will be the first game of the year.
Cavalry skirmish at Rorketon - from the new campaign.
Scenarios - I have yet to decide if any will be played with concentration being placed on the campaign.
Gettysburg is still up there but unlikely given all other projects planned.
Rorkes Drift - Almost half the Zulus painted with most of the British needed to be done including the buildings.
Air action and battle south of Nibeiwa - Operation Compass campaign
Battles from the "Reconnaissance in Strength" mini-campaign (Soviets v Germans) - I intend to play this as a continual rolling battle to completion of the campaign.
Groesbeek Heights - Op Market Garden
