Every year I (like so many other wargaming Bloggers) write a review of my year and make a load of unlikely predictions for the coming twelve months. Some of my resolutions are either deliberately easy or at the very least hard to define so that by the end of the year I can smugly say I have achieved most of the things on my list. But this year has been an unmitigated mess as far as predictions are concerned and my untimely - and very bitter - exit from my old company only managed to screw up matters even more.
I have managed to start a new project this year (Desert Raiders) and at the start of the year I hit my target on the 2013/14 Winter Painting Challenge, but since then things have gone downhill fast. Redundancy and job hunting have consumed a lot of my time this year and even after finding a new job I've been so busy settling-in that my hobby time has taken a big hit. The one thing that has kept me going during 2014 has been my continued involvement with Posties Rejects. Having such a nice group of friends to wargame with has kept me from going completely bonkers this year, even in the darkest days of my redundancy. Here's a short look at the games I have played this year.
|The Battle of Matigulu - Zulu War - 6mm|
|Vietnam Test Game - 15mm|
|Alam El Halfa - FOW WWII North Africa - 6mm|
|Battle of Bald Wood - FIW - 28mm Skirmish|
|Romans Go Home - Ancient - 28mm|
|Battle of Fort Louis - FIW - 28mm Skirmish|
Road to Hue - Vietnam - 15mm
|Battle of Beyreuth - Napoleonic - 15mm|
|Corunna Road - Spanish Civil War - 10mm|
|Battle of Yellow Field - AWI - 28mm|
|Battle of Leignitz - SYW - 15mm|
Not a bad collection of games ranging across several periods and scales and all played with a great bunch of guys in a very friendly and convivial atmosphere. What more can one ask for?
Have a great new year folks. Here's looking forward to the battles of 2015.
