WarBattles – doing refights of all the battles in a war or a campaign with no restrictions on rules, probably against multiple opponentsPeloponnesian Wars – this is a mammoth undertaking which I very much doubt I will ever finish. There are 50+ battles of which I have done 4 of the land ones so far and none of the naval. I have a plan to do one of the Athenian naval raids using Dux Britanniarum so that might happen in 2014
Battles of Phillip II and Alexander the Great – with 5 battles done I am about a quarter of the way through. The first was back in 1982 though!1066 Year of Three Battles – only Gate Fulford to do to complete this
The Italian Wars – I have added this to my list of projects as I have done 3 of the battles and have quite a number of the troopsThe Wars of the Roses – only 3 of these done back in the late nineties but I am hoping to get a move on with this using Bloody Barons
Henry VIII’s campaign in France in 1513 – ever since I read Cruickshanks book I have wanted to game this campaign. It is the only 25mm pre 1700 period for which I have been buying bare metal figures but unfortunately most of them have stayed that way. One game so far.Scots Renaissance Battles – a book called Grampian battles aroused my interest in this - I have so far only done Linlithgow Bridge though
The War of the Triple Alliance – an impulse buy of painted figures got me into this – no games palyed as yetThe Fleet Air Arm month by month – the plan is do do at least one game from each month the FAA was involved in carrier based air to air combat. I just about have Mers el Kebir ready to roll.
So 18 games over 9 projects since 1982. I think I will have to speed up!
Side Projects – trying to build up forcesInterwar in 28mm – Marco from Rif Raf has been painting up Freikorps for me- I want to continue to expand this force and get a few more games in
Indonesian Confrontation – I was taken with Commando Miniatures figures and have managed to get some paint on a few figures – this is something for 2014.Science Fiction in 28mm – I want to built a small generic force based on some of the Pig Iron figures
Fantasy in 28mm – I have a usable Chaos Warriors army but need to finish itSteampunk in 28mm – I have a Khador force for Warmachine – it needs some more paint
WSS in 15mm – My Dutch army just needs the cavalry painted – the Maurice rules are now popular at the club and might prove the inspiration to get these finished and on the tableModern Iraq in 28mm – a couple of impulse buys mean I have the figures and a couple of vehicles but unpainted at the moment I fear
ACW in 15mm – for the Longstreet campaign – these actually don’t need a huge amount of workTwinkles in the Eye – who knows whether these will ever turn into projects or not – I hope so!
Cyprus 1974 in 28mm – Greek Cypriot T34s against Turkish M47s. If I could get my hands on some die casts at sensible prices I would buy some infantry and give this a go
British Honduras in 28mm – What if the Guatemalans had invadedNapoleonic Naval – small scale frigate actions
Sikh Wars in 15mm- I have some rules but am not sure this will get any further
Then there all my other toys (lots of 25mm ancients/medieval/ECW and 15mm Napoleonics) and of course I will get distracted by gaming other periods and campaigns, both using my own figures and others. The joys of being a wargamer eh!
