Happy New Year 2015

Another year has come and gone. In terms of the hobby I managed to play a few games of In Her Majesty's name. I guess I didn't quite get everything posted which I would have liked to. But its a brand new year coming. Time to choose a new hobby goal and move forward with that goal.
The goal which I want to accomplish this year is to complete some of my samurai army. If I work on a figure a day I'll have it done in about a year. I guess a more realistic goal would be to paint enough until I can do a decent sized battle (or tire of painting sashimos) whatever comes first.

Anyway, hope your holidays were great, and I'll see you on the other side of 2014.

More Wargames Factory Figures + Future Project

I purchased several boxes of WargamesFactory figures on their black friday sale. They arrived a few days ago and I'm looking forward to assembling them when I get time. I've always been intrigued by Japanese samurai, so I purchased several boxes of those. I'll get some pictures up of them when I begin to build and paint them. Right now I'm in the research phase to determine which clans I want to paint up. Ii Naomasa's "Red Devils" seem to be a popular clan to paint up. They were a subdivision of the Tokogowa Clan. I might decide to paint them, but right now I'm leaning toward painting clans which are not as popular to paint for miniatures, because then if I meet another person who plays samurai miniatures, then we won't be fighting with two of the same clans on the battlefield. I'm still waiting for my rules so far.

Have a good battle,
