As the new year approaches it is time to think about what I shall do over the next 12 months. Although I have had mixed results in sticking to previous years plans, I do tend to find it helps in focussing my attention rather than bursting off in all directions which I have been known to do!
As in previous years I will break down my plans into Battles, Campaigns, Painting/Modelling.
So without further ado, onto the plans:
Early Imperial Roman 2nd Augusta Legion v Ancient British Durotriges tribe in the west country.
Edgehill - Almost ready to play this and will be a priority in the new year.
Peninsular War project - Battle of Busaco 27th September 1810. There are a fair number of figures to paint before this game will be ready so probably 50:50 if this will be on the table in 2023.
Napoleonic Campaign - At the time of writing this I am still completing campaign map moves. There will certainly be at least one battle played out this coming year.
Gettysburg Day 2 - I have been intending for several years to play this game but for a variety of reasons has fallen by the wayside. There is no excuse though as my available gaming area is now sufficient for a battle of this size. There are terrain pieces that have yet to be painted but I simply have to get this up on the tabletop this coming year.
Rorkes Drift - Most of the figures have now been painted with just the terrain to be completed.
A priority to get the figures painted followed by terrain. I intend to make this one of the targets this year but unsure as to whether I will complete all the collection required. Hopefully though I will get something on the table even if only a test game.
Cristot (Normandy 1944) - Already on the board with an AAR due to be posted within the next few weeks.
Battle south of Nibeiwa - Operation Compass campaign and another priority for the year.
Groesbeek Heights - Op Market Garden. Another target but dependant on being able to get the figures painted in time.
