New Projects - 3 at once!

In my last post, I told you all about the excellent book on the Falklands Conflict I had been reading ... well I succumbed to temptation and bought a bunch of Pendraken's range along with a few of Timecast's Falklands buildings

The figures have arrived and taken their rightful place in the Lead Mountain, but I ;m still waiting for the Timecast buildings

And then on Friday afternoon I was feeling a bit damn miserable - which happens quite a lot when you suffer from Depression (unsurprisingly) - when along came the weekly Friday email from Warlord Games saying that they had Test of Honour back in stock ....

Oh dear ...

Spending your way out of a misery attack sometimes works and for me on Friday, after a severe spanking to the credit card, it did!

So I now have another project on its way - Test of Honour; for those who don't know, it's a Samurai skirmish game.

But that wasn't enough!

I also got Project Z, which as it's a zombie game, really does not count as a new project for me

Hail Caesar; I've been prepping & undercoating all my 10mm ancients, and not found a set of rules that I've read that I really like, hence getting this

And finally Black Powder, ever since I first read about the charge of the Heavy Brigade (yes, Heavy, not Light) and Campbell's thin red line, I've wanted to game the Crimea. I was reading someone's blog about using Black Powder for the Crimea (can't find it now) and it inspired me to do something, hence buying the rules

Anyway, now it's Monday, and all the above should be on its way soon ...

At some point, I'm really going to have paint something, aren't I?


  1. You'll really set yourself out for a lot of work in the future, ood luck with all these new (ish) projects too. The Crimean War was always a 'nearly' period for me and raised its ugly head in the wargames world about every 5 to 10 years or so.
    My friend Colin (Blog: Carry on up the Dale) did a lot of Vrimean ga,es, but I can't remember what rules he used.
    I gave up looking for a decent set of Samurai rules many years ago, so I'm looking forward to hearing how these latest ones play.

  2. Blimey! Charge of the Lead Brigade!

  3. Samurai rules can be good or bad or mediocre. Much like any period, HOWEVER some players cannot or will not get onto the spirit of samurai games. Which is their loss. So very dependant on the players.

    BP Crimea. Not a huge Black powder fan. the rules are OK but they tried to cover too much..... Also not a fan of crimea. But I wish you well.

    Zombies and 10mm ancients though that does it for me on both projects. you saved the best till last.
