I want to review possible rule modifications to take advantage of the larger units with more elbow room. This isn't necessary but I might as well take advantage of the chance to look at things before playing. Rules aren't the main delay though.
Ever since I casually put aside my Great War venture to stage an earlier Colonial train ambush game I have been inventing new Atlantican factions, wars and uniforms on the fly and improvising tabletop forces.
Now that I feel settled as to what the games will be like I want to spend a little time getting the units in play up to scratch and some time figuring out the 'historical' and geographic background, scenario options and by extension, uniforms, units and so on. I'm not sure that everything I want to dabble in over the next 20 years will fit into the Atlantica background but as long as the armies are small enough there will be room for historical or other fictional settings as well. I am especially keen on getting to some of the 'extras', bands, hospitals and so on.
Another 30 - 40 cm of snow, freezing rain and high winds forecast for Sunday until Monday so a Snow Day, but will I paint or play?
