So it's 09, technecly my 3rd year as wargamer, altho my first year only lasted a month, and we are only a week into the third, so in reality I have only been doing this for just over a year.
In the past year I have painted 500 28mm figs, and about 800 15mm.
I have started many projects but only one is gameble and thats my 15mm Napoleonic, with two forces of even strenght, it has all you need for a good game, arty, cav and lots of infantry.
This years I have sevral planes and here they are.
Two big ones.
15mm ACW project about 750 figs
15mm SYW project aslo about 750 figs.
I have one smaller project of 28mm Napoleoinc skirmish,
Here I was planing on 30 ish figs for the first go, then build on it.
This will aslo help me in my most inportant goal of the year, to become a good painter, it will ofcourse take more then a single year to become realy good, but I want to see a substantial improvement over what I do now. I have allready started with some practice on some old 40mm figs I have laying around. But found that my paints weren't up to the work, I feel I have the brush control and I know what I want to do, but can't get the paint to do what I want to do, I'm sure it's just as much my fault as the paint, but hopefully if I get good paint, it will be easier for me to work on my skills.
Also for this purpouse I have orderd some Western figs, again in 28mm, I will probebly game with them to but I bought them manly because I want to paint them and use them for practice.
And finnaly I want to make my first diorama, It will be samurai based, simply because their armor makes a great view and are very colorfull, perfect for a diorama. but this will be after I have gotten better at painting as it takes skill to paint those armours.
Well thats the plan, I'm sure I'll find lots of other stuff to use my money on, but this is THE PLAN.
