Happy New Year 2016!!!!

I want to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!!!

This past year has been a good one. Lots of gaming was had with my group throughout the year.  I was able to attend our local convention Enfilade but even more exciting was attending Historicon in July.  It was great seeing and catching up with old friends. I'm hoping to make it again this year but we will have to see how things work out this year.

I did a lot of painting this year.  I was able to finish up a division of Russians and Austrians for WWI. There is still more to paint for that before I can put them on the table.
I also painted up some Pulp Fiction characters. Now I just have to decide on a rule set for them.
I made my own terrain mats this past fall which have worked out pretty well. I'm planning on making another one once the weather warms up again.
My biggest accomplishment was starting my 10mm Renaissance figures. I've been putting off starting them because painting the uniforms scared the hell out of me. But I pulled the trigger in December and so far things are going well. I've completed 5 out of 15 units so far.  The Pikemen are on the painting table now. Should have the first unit completed in the next few days.
Going forward into 2016 I will finish up the Renaissance figures and get them out on the table this year.  
I need to figure out what game/s I will run at Enfilade this year.
I also want to start my 69AD project with Roman vs. Roman.
Also I've been toying with the idea of doing 1/285 scale WWII Pacific games. I would need to build terrain and gather up the troops etc for this but maybe I can start it by December of 2016.
I'm sure I will get side tracked onto something else but this is a good start. 

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for taking an interest in what I'm doing.
