Interim Plan 2017

It's been a while since I posted, and most of the reason for that is I'm still trying to get set up in the new house. I'll have photos of the new studio just as soon as I'm done - hopefully in the next week or two because both I and my son are going through serious miniature withdrawal!

My plans for the next year miniature-wise are pretty much in flux at this point. I had planned on working on a mid-war Italian army for Flames of War this year, but given the rules for Italians appear to be a way off yet, that's been back-burnered. I may finally do that Kasserine Pass U.S. tank force, but that will require a fair number of conversions - though the new plastic tanks will make that easier.

On rulesets, I'm still pretty much committed to FoW at least for EW and LW, but I am starting to branch out a bit. Nothing I can recommend yet, but I'm playtesting. This may be the year I finally get my Team Yankee forces together. I finally have enough to make a go of the East Germans, so I think that's going to get on the table, and I still plan to do some LW and VLW Germans.

My son is still interested in painting Warhammer 40K miniatures, and I'll be doing a fair amount of that with him as well. Should be a lot of fun.

That being said, this year is the year I get back into scale modeling. I already have a couple of 1/35th scale tank kits lined up to work on, so watch this space. If you think my rivet counting of Battlefront miniatures was over the top, you haven't seen anything yet!
