January 2013

A good month for the hobby.

PAINTING
14 x sci-fi figures and drones: 14 points
120 x ancients: 120
152 x WW2 Germans: 152

TOTAL: 286

I also finished rebasing the US Rifle Company.

Hit my painting goals for January but did not get in a full game after finishing the IABSM game.

Planning to get 4 more ancients units done in Feb, basing some of the OPFOR ancients, and playing a game of Starmada and a game of Song of the Splintered Lands.

GAMES
1 x IABSM
---My son also developed his own rules for using the new ancients figures on the Hexon terrain...he played 3 or 4 games with his friends.

OTHER
Finished reading the 2012 Wargamers Annual, Secrects of Wargames Design, More Secrets of Wargames Design, Wargames Illustrated, Miniature Wargaming, six history magazines, and a book on Napoleon's surgeon of the Guard.

SPENDING
Can of primer, Bag the Hun rules, Check Your 6 rules, a terrain project on kickstarter, and an order of Litko bases. No figures! ----I was doing good until the kickstarter!

I signed up for some Cold Wars games with my son in March. Looking forward to trying Fireball Forward and Check Your 6!
