(Yes, this is one of those year-end reviews and new year's previews... bear with me!)
I'm always planning things, and 2007 was no exception. Lots of projects planned, but little accomplished.
40K - The Tau are back into the box, and I do not think that I will keep them past July. They just are not interesting to paint or game. 40K is most likely to go on stand-by as other projects take the stage, but those Orks are tempting. Back in 1987 I had Orks, and now they might be back. It will be a low-key project; I envision that most of the vehicles will be scratchbuilt, and the boyz will be had with a minimum of monetary expenditure.
Warhammer - A marvelous turn of events here. I had originally planned to make this as a proxy sidelight to the Renaissance project, with enough overlap to do fantasy battles. But with the arrival of so many Empire minis (thanks again, kids) this has taken a life of its own. I still need a lot of infantry for the army I want, however I have been given a great start.
Warlord - This set is being replaced with a new, simpler game - Song of Blades and Heroes from Ganesha Games. It is a very generic system, with small amounts of troops on the board, making for fast games.
Renaissance - I still have great hopes for this project, but it might take a back seat, at least for the first half of 2008, to the project listed next. Still want to do this in 28mm.
Tekumel - The vast majority of hobby money I spent in 2007 went into this project. Minis and books galore came in, but I do want more. Unfortunately, I wasted a lot of time 'thinking' instead of 'doing', and it shows. I am still not yet satisfied with a potential rules set, but the C&C:Ancients conversion looks good.
And, one last idea - I want to have a historical game set so I can actually have something to run at local conventions. This will likely be a naval game, with either 1/1200 scale post-ACW ironclads or 1/3000 pre-dreadnoughts. Just something inexpensive to purchase and quick to prepare. I will let you know...
