A new year!

Looks like 2013 is on the way out, and 2014 is at the doorstep, so here is yet another post on the blogosphere about it all!

2013 was quite a mixed bag for this blog.  The fact that there were posts here at all marked a major improvement over 2012!  But, what was accomplished?  Just about the only thing that happened was acquiring some sense of what and where I would like my naval projects to proceed.

Despite some verbiage to the contrary, I keep coming back to a few projects:  ancients, now headed by my Tékumel fantasy ships (using Langton ancient naval miniatures); Renaissance (although this is the outside chance of all); ACW naval; and pre-dreadnoughts, buoyed by the excellent new releases from WTJ.  With the exception of the ancients ships, no decision has been made on these.  I think it best to stick with getting this one set out and usable before tackling others (my lovely wife agrees!).

I would like to thank everybody that visits/follows/comments my blog - it is appreciated more than I might let on!

Happy New Year!

p.s.   In case anybody is counting, today is this blog's 5th anniversary...

Langton ancient naval rules available

It would not surprise me that I am, once again, late to the party on this, but the set of ancient naval rules from Langton Miniatures, Naumachiae, is available as a free set of downloads... at this link.  

It is in PDF format, and fairly large, but worth the download wait!
