I made a few goals for 2018. Some I did better on and others I didn't do so hot on. Here is a breakdown of the goals made for 2018:
I am mostly pleased with this. I have enough infantry painted up so I can field about a platoon each of Germans and Americans. I have some StuGs, Panzer IVs and a Tiger on the German side, which is great. Unfortunately I only have 3 Sherman 76s, which isn't ideal, as such I need to put in an order of normal armour.
I haven't managed to get any games in though. This is back to the time old issue of not having enough terrain. I have a few buildings, a couple of roads and some hedgerows. I need more though, and I want different ideas for roads. Currently I am in the process of making fields, and today I picked up two more towels with which to make even more of them. I reckon I will be happy with terrain by the summer in order to get a game on the table.
This was a resounding success. I loved running the games, I loved hosting, I loved getting kids into wargaming. I will be doing this again this coming summer.
Existing Sci Fi Campaigns
The campaigns of Startport Scum and Horizon Wars that I began at the end of 2017 have still amounted to nothing. I haven't played another game on Satomi, or in the Edge of the Storm campaign. At some point these will continue, maybe this year. It is ironic because the two campaigns were going to link together, with the Satomi battles becoming the origin story for one of the Starport Scum characters. It was going to be amazing.
New Goals for 2019
1. To actually have enough terrain to have a 6mm WW2 battle. This is an absolute priority.
2. Entrench the Wargaming club at work. I haven't done it this autumn. but the guys know it is coming back in January. In this club a number of different games will be played. Already we have done Star Wars Miniatures and Star Wars Pocketmodels.
3. Finally order some more miniatures to build up my WW2 forces.
The arrival of my third child, a son this time was a highlight.
