The state of my gaming

So having not posted for a while I have a flood of updates mainly stuff I had meant to post but life and college got in the way(in fact at this very moment I should be writing about about how environmental constraints affects bolt designers and manufactures thrilling...)

So in brief what's happened hobby wise so far:
I got another 7 15mm crusties finished with two guns teams and 2 support weapons w.i.p bringing me to 14 painted.

My father and I started and finished a father and son project(how heartwarming) all in one day the constructing and designing of a wargames table for the kitchen. Yes a "proper" wargames table of 6x4!

And we even manged to get teh first game on it last night/over breakfast (we had intended to gt a game of Gruntz 15mm scifi in but due to not really knowing the rules and the amount of prep needed we ended up playing a North West Frontier game and so whilst that was intended for September on wards it's ended up being our new project oops).

Oh and I was given a present! A box of wargames factory skeletons which will go to one side for my long term project of Warhammer 2nd edition (very long term).

Pictures will be going up over the next few days hopefully dealing with each of these posts ;)

New Year, new um...

Well we are full in the new year now and that end time to make resolutions that are completely unbelievable and just generally ridiculous but one must make an effort have goals to reach and maybe just maybe get close to said goals. To that end I suppose I should try and list my goals/projects for the year that I would like to at least start. Also I shall start a tally of bought painted just see how depressingly I can rack up the number of models bought....

15mm Scfi - Well towards the end of last year I was bought a bunch of 15mm scifi Crusties from Ground Zero Games so I suppose my initial goal will be to finish the stuff I was bought and have a usable force for Gruntz another part of this will be to try and get at least 1 game a month. (so to paint I have another unit 2 squad attachments weapons a command, 2 gun teams, 1 squad of gruntz in heavy armor and 2 light crustie walkers.
Speaking of 15mm scifi..

That's the first unit more or less done I will update at some point with better pictures. (Blimey I have actually painted something!)

Flames of War French - Whilst I did hit my target and get the initial lot done I have 6 75mm guns and 3 aa guns, 3 Panhards, 3 H39's and 2 stands of VB grenades.

Fantasy - Of some flavor and size whether this will be 28mm skirmish of the start of 15mm using Warhammer 2nd edition I do not know or maybe even 28mm dungeon crawling.

Squats - Make a note of all I have and make some form of force for Rogue trader and attempt to do an opposing force of guard/genestealer cult force.

And maybe just maybe some stargate in 20mm/28mm we'll see.
