Well, 2012 did not come off as I expected in the hobby department, especially with regards to naval gaming. Suffice to say, I completely lost the plot! I did manage to do a little with some of my other projects (I have a series of blogs specific to certain projects, click on my profile if you are interested) but I did not get very far with anything.
Recently, however, I have been trying to shake off the cobwebs and get some wok done again, and that includes naval projects. Once again, one of the biggest obstacles is focus. I can launch off on a new project very easily, but getting the miniatures on the table seems to be a bit hard for me lately.
So, coming up with the right set of projects will be my first goal. As always, I have several options:
1. Renaissance naval - I have several Figurehead 1/2400 ships waiting patiently;
2. Ironclads - Again, more 1/2400 Figurehead ships from 1866 waiting;
3. WW1 - A bit more complicated with this, as I have 1/2400, 1/3000, and 1/6000 scale ships;
4. WW2 - Also a choice of scales here, with 1/2400 and 1/6000.
And this list is just for miniatures that I already possess!
One point that I want to check on immediately is this question - Can I paint 1/6000 ships to my liking? If so, then I might have the post-1900 situation sorted. 1/2400 seems to be a good choice for any action from 1500 - 1885.
Also, I have begun to change the look of this blog. I have added more links to other blogs on the left, and hopefully it is a bit easier to read.
