Still here...

Just in case anyone was wondering, I haven't fallen off the planet but a combination of various other issues combined with having got out of the habit of posting has meant quiet a bit of radio silence over the last few months.

I have actually been gaming, although slightly less frequently and I do have a backlog of pictures (and if I can actually recall) descriptions of games from the last few months to post.  I have also been making some halting progress with a couple of projects - so there is quite a bit of material there too.

My current issue is having only a limited amount of time and several new (or newish) projects on mind and, in one case, on the painting table (something that really doesn't happen very frequently).  So here's a quick run down of things that are currently in the works:

Indian Mutiny (no, I know this isn't a new one) - my first unit of the wonderful Iron Duke figures
Marlburian (ok, so this isn't new either) - some Danes and French allies are coming
ACW (actually my oldest project) - some additional more visually interesting units to bring this one back to life
Maximilian in Mexico (this one has been a very long time coming) - I now have all the figures I think I need and a set of rules
WW1 Eastern Front (this genuinely is new) - 15mm Russians and Austro-Hungarians are in the works for some scenarios in Galicia using Battles with Brusilov
Franco Prussian - I haven't actually started buying any figures for this yet as I am trying to settle on which of the several sets of rules I am going to go with so I can sort out numbers and basing etc.

These along with a backlog of buildings to build or paint should keep my pretty busy this year.  If I can just get back into the habit of putting something out regularly...
