The harsh rule is that each collection must appear in a game at least once in 3 years or face a board to argue for its continued existence. Preferably each collection should appear at least once a year although the expanded list might make that harder. I see that only two collections have not make the field this year.... yet!
Chronologically using a mildly modified version of Morschauser's classification of periods and including a link to the last outing for that collection:
SHOCK (ie Ancient/Medieval)
1. The Five Kingdoms: 5 small 25mm OS armies for a fictional campaign set in Central Asia after the fall of the Greek Bactrian Kingdom. (Chronicled on the Gathering of Host blog). Includes by default a small number of 1/72nd plastic until such time as their fate is determined. (Nov 2013)
- Currently 3 of the armies are partially ready, enough for small games. The goal is to get at least a 4th table-ready and bring the others closer to finished.
2. The Adventures of Prince Michael. 40mm post Roman Britain skirmish game inspired by Prince Valiant. (Sep 2013)
- Add a few individuals including civilians and some mythical elements.
3. The Game of Scones. A not strictly historical 25mm 15thC-ish Medieval Scottish setting with small forces claiming allegiance to one or more of the King of the Scots, the King of England or the Lord of the Isles (with maybe a few Frenchmen hanging aboot). Once again this dates back to the mid-1970's and in the 90's was my largest army. I have a fledgling ECW Scottish force that may be quietly and inaccurately folded into this to avoid an unnecessary ECW collection. (Nov 2012)
- Sort out the mess of available new and used figures and get 3 armies table ready including long bows.
4. Rough Wooing. 40mm 16thC Anglo-Scottish and French forces with Turks waiting in the wings. (Sept 2013)
-Add a few more gensdarmes and mounted arquebusiers.
MUSKET. (or Horse & Musket)
5. The Paths of Glory. Quebec 1759 in 30mm. My first serious wargaming collection. Started in 1973 for Charge! abandoned soon after in favour of 25mm WRG ancients, but never forgotten. Now resurrected for the Square Brigadier with 12 man battalions. (Mar 2013)
- Paint up the new Indians and Rangers and get a few more figures including a Wolfe, a Montcalm, some light infantry and more militia.
6. Not Quite the Seven Years War. My contribution to a group effort, 40mm semi-flat fictional 18th Century using Charge! (Sep 2013)
- Needs to be sorted out and put on a solid footing with full regiments for foreign wars.
7. The Acadian War of Independence. 40mm AWI for the Northern Campaigns from Quebec and Nova Scotia to Saratoga & Oriskany. ( Sep 2013)
- Add some Hessian and British line infantry.
8. War of 1812. 40mm, after much dithering this will be aimed primarily at fighting the battles of the war or appropriate similar sized teasers as opposed to skirmish actions. (May 2013)
- Reorganize into 12 man battalions and add officers etc as required and identify deficiencies.
9. Atlantica. 40mm fictional mid 19thC. A bit of a confused jumble at the moment, split between small unit 'skirmishes' (ie companies as units rather than individuals using MacDuff and "battles" using the Square Brigadier and ranging from the 1840's to 1900. (Oct 2013)
- Add more Native forces and more Faraway infantry to replace 1812 stand ins.
10. The American Civil War. 1/72nd ACW. Divional/ small corps sized engagements. (Oct 2013)
- Organize and rebase cavalry.
11. Nkhukuland, 54mm classic toy soldier colonial skirmishes. (May 2012)
- If it is to be kept restoration of old figures needs to be begun.
12. The Approaching Storm. 1/72nd Early 20thC. A mix of Boer War, Russian Civil War and early WWI forces organized for small unit actions on a gridded table at home or at Ron's. As themselves at Ron's and maybe at home but possibly a future Atlantican campaign. (Nov 2013) (The Boers are still being gathered so have never seen action while the last RCW skirmish doesn't seem to have made it to print.)
- Paint up Boers, order British and work on a plan for the rest.
13. Check Point Frankie. 54mm Low intensity mid 20thC toy soldiers in action. (Aug 2013)
- No action planned.
14. Roscia. 1/72nd mid 20thC border clashes between fictional countries. (Dec 2011)
- Paint remaining 2 Centurions.
15. Stragglers. There are various small bits and pieces, usually a contribution to a group project, that don't have a home and either need to be added, incorporated or disposed of. The most important of these are the fledgling 25mm armies of ECW Scots and 17th/18thC Turks. There are others but we're ignoring them all for now.
