Well here we are at my last post for 2014 - where did the time go? Fittingly, this is about the last group of miniatures in my painting pile - more cavalry for my Iron Hooves.
The figures are BUF cavalry from
Here they are with my previous bunch, from Crusader Miniatures and I think they mix together reasonably well (if, like me, you're not too fussy about differences in uniform, kit etc.)
Looking back, the most abiding impression is that I haven't played nearly enough games this year - 4 out of a meagre 32 posts being actual AARs.
However two of those were dedicated to a couple of fantastic Big Games, which are rapidly becoming the highlight of my wargaming calendar.
My modelling/painting output has been modest, but considering that this time last year I was predicting that I had virtually completed my VBCW collection, I haven't done too badly!
I've also been pleased to make a token effort with historical research too, scouring the newspaper archives for interesting snippets.
So what next?
Hopefully more gaming! We have another Big Game planned for March - stay tuned n the new year for news about that - but I if the dice gods are smiling I will be able to find more time to put lead to table.
I still have more cavalry to prep and paint, plus some vehicle kits to assemble (and by that I mean 'not glue to my fingers') and some scenery (stuff I have bought that needs painting, and bits to scratchbuild.)
On top of this I have my two other blogs to maintain. The VBCW Miniatures Guide will need to be updated as new ranges come on the market, and my research continues regarding My Family in and Great War.
So to conclude - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Here's to the next one!
