Inspired and Feeling Industrious
Now that the great loft move is more or less complete it is with some relief that I can now apply myself to the various projects I currently have on the go. To recap these are as follows:
I have been thinking about the Balkans and the 1914 Med ideas and am expecting to be revising these as they are a little close to one another in many ways. I want to make use of the Minifigs ships I have for the naval dimension but am being lured into period specific fictional forces rather than the historical types. I will have to give this some thought.
The ACW kit will be the first of these to be tackled as I really want to get this finished - especially as I will need to make some more models as well. The land side will of course be using the Portable Wargame and the blocks so that will be one facet I will not need to worry about.
Operation Barbarossa will be an interesting one and at this stage I am undecided how I will tackle this but there is no immediate rush and I am sure a solution will present itself in due course. Assuming this works out in whatever shape or form it eventually takes I would then like to explore some Western desert type action but that is a long way off.
I have a few other ideas to toy with (I am still thinking about the best way to game the North Atlantic in 1941!) and I am quite sure there will be a few surprises along the way but the great thing for me now though is the fact that at last I can experiment properly with rules, games and periods without any of it impacting on the domestic routine!
