Welcome to my wargames blog

This is my attempt to record my endeavours in the hobby of wargaming, which I've been involved with for around 25 years, on and off.

It's no surprise that in the space of over two decades, I have had limited success in actually completing the various projects that I've attempted to get started. A couple of years ago I actually counted up all the various projects that I've got tucked away in boxes, crates, packets and bags under my workbench.

The total was 68.

And that was two years ago!

This got me thinking about a way to rationalise this lot, with the aim of actually completing some of them before the floor of my garage implodes under the weight of all the lead.

The result was to devise a punishing schedule of painting, basing and modelling, linked in to my 2009 New Years Resolutions:

1. I would aim to complete one project per month.
2. I would not begin any new projects that weren't already in the pile.
3. I could add new stuff to existing projects.

It's nearly the end of 2009 and I'll be working out how sucessful I've been in achieving my leadpile reduction soon.

Watch this space..

  2. Looking forward to seeing your progress. Completely one project a month seems like a lot to me! Good Luck
