2013 Year In Review - what I actually did...

Another fun year. Unlike last year, I do seem to have strayed a little less off the planned track in what I have done, even if I haven't done everything I planned (which is why this post looks more like the previous one than the same two posts last year!). The Parthians and the Home Guard are the major timesinks outside of what I planned, and to be honest the former were hovering on the edge of the todo list for 2013 from the outset. I did manage to get to more shows, too.

Two things I am pleased with - I seem to have improved my painting skill, and I do seem to have acquired a knack for building terrain.

Painting/Making:

  • 15mm US and German infantry companies complete, a British company stalled about 3/4 done.
  • 28mm Home Guard platoon for Chain of Command
  • 28mm Parthians (3000 pts in WAB, which is a heck of a lot of cavalry!)
  • 28mm Judge Dredd force of Judges
  • 28mm Dreadball team
  • 8 2x2 terrain tiles plus assorted hills, stand-alone pieces
  • lots of trees
New additions to the lead/plastic pile in addition (but untouched):
  • 28mm Perry WOTR
  • 28mm Dark Ages foot (GB)
  • 28mm Fireforge Templars (foot and mounted)
  • LOTS of 15mm WW2 
  • 28mm Deadzone

Tournaments/Games

  • WABGT 2013. Took my newly put-together Parthians, and... came last, as previously mentioned. Well-attended tournament, although I'm considering whether or not to attend next year.
  • Axes 2013 (Rushden club WAB tournament) - took the Parthians masquerading as Palmyrans. Came last. (Stop me if you've heard this before!). Might not be able to attend next year as it clashes with Loncon 3.
  • Club WAB campaign day
  • A couple of Judge Dredd tournaments, one at Mongoose, one at the club
  • Continued Andy and my Dux Brit campaign
  • Helped playtest Chain of Command
  • Assorted other games including In Her Majesty's Name, Judge Dredd, Dreadball, Of Gods And Mortals,. Dux Bellorum....
Shows:
  • Hammerhead
  • Salute
  • MetaGames Con
  • The Other Partizan
