Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest. I try to post about everything I do, not just what goes according to plan, so it's a blog all about stumbling along in a roughly forward direction rather than reaching the destination, with lots of ideas for potential projects that will probably never see the light of day!

Back of Beyond Campaign Big Game
Campaign One Big Game
Campaign Two Big Game
Campaign Three Big Game?
At the end of each Back of Beyond campaign I've always organised a big multiplayer finale, incorporating the various factions and a few extras so that non-campaign gamers can get involved. The game usually involves an assault on the defences of Kashgar which are garrisoned by my Bolshevik army and whatever rag tag units I can scrape together from the club players.
This year I'm planning to combine all of the four or five campaign forces into one multi-national assault force, consisting of four hundred points of troops per player. This will allow me to beef up the defenders to match, using a combination of field fortifications, artillery, air power and my armoured train. I'm working on the details but I reckon on about 2000+ points worth of defences, once I sort out the various units at my disposal.
I'll need to complete my armoured train and build some track to go with it. I'll also need to scratchbuild a simple wooden bridge and a blown up version of the same, as this will feature as one of the obstacles for the attackers to negotiate. I may also finish off a 1/48th scale Ansaldo SVA5 biplane that I've had knocking about for a few years, to boost the ground attack capabilities of the Reds.
The date for this extravaganza is yet to be decided but it's looking like the latter half of April at the earliest.
