|The next time the Governor General's Bodyguard needs to dismount, I'll have proper figures.|
Last year I managed to get each and every one of my active collections on the table for a game. It felt good but also made it hard to focus on anything, which may be one reason that I didn't do a lot of painting last year. That's a good thing since the shelves are full but I have no intention of giving that side of the hobby up yet. I have mentioned recently that I don't enjoy painting as much as I used to but I was thinking mostly of the business of churning out unit after unit of 12 or 20 figures with lots of detail. A few 40's with simple shading or a few glossy toy soldiers is a different matter.

Game wise, once I have enough French AGW figures to add to some SYW stand-ins, I need to practice A Gentleman's War and conscript a few friends so I can be ready to GM a multiplayer AGW game at Huzzah! in May.
For fun, I expect to keep my 54's busy. Despite some very enjoyable games with the 54's it was not their best year as I started the year with some doubts about the path I was on and the various paths not taken. So it was that I rebased the armies to singles and tried then rejected what seemed like a dozen different approaches and then parked them. Having now tried out all the other various ways that I thought I might, or should, want go with the 54's, I'm satisfied that I don't actually want to go any of those routes, so I'm reforming back to the way things were last New Year's and looking forward to more games.
