However, the last couple of months have smoothed out considerably and I got into a bit of a Viking groove and have painted a couple of units. This year I really aim to push on and fill out the Viking army to about 1500 or 2000 points in WAB. At the club, George has a large Saxon contingent and Graham is building a Norman list, so we should be able to get them on the table soon. Also, I want to complete the 15mm Republican Roman army I began so many moons ago. I've bought a bunch more figures from Essex and Magister Militum and should have enough for a 75 point Armati army. Further to that, I have always liked the aesthetics of ancient pike armies, so I will try to expand on my Seleucid DBA army and build that up to Armati strength, too. And through it all I want to complete my Malifaux crews. The core of Perdita's Guild crew is complete, but I want to add a couple of options and I need to finish the Resurrectionists. So 2012 is going to be a year of consolidation. The only new thing I want to start is 15mm Napoleonics which I got some figures from Santa for.
Oh...and I will try to get some more board gaming in. The past week saw about four games of CC:Ancients and I'd forgotten how good that is! I have my eye on at least another one, too, so watch out for that. But for now, here's the Vikings as they stand so far:
|Crusader 2-Handed Axe Hirdmen|
|Gripping Beast Plastic Hirdmen|
|Gripping Beast Bondi with bows|
|Gripping Beast Bondi Unit 1|
|Gripping Beast Bondi Unit 2|
