I've created a new blog to record my miniature craftwork in my imaginary cold war gone hot campaign setting. I will remove those posts from this blog to the new one. Soviet Union of East Borgovia.

It's time for a new look however it may also be time to retire this blog. I'll update this post when I decide which direction I'm going.
UPDATE: I'm NOT going to retire this blog but rather shift its focus to 19th century warfare up to and including the Great War.

Blogging: I plan to slim this blog down even more to just simply cover horse and musket up to the Great War. I plan to move the Second World War, Vietnam and other modern warfare along with the Atomicpunk stuff to their own blogs.
Painting: I am going to change how I track painted models this year. I will focus on completed forces rather than individual miniatures. With that said I hope to complete, across all genres at least 4 complete and field ready forces.
For this blog I plan to continue to chip away at the Royal Spanish and American forces for the Spanish-American War. Perhaps even get back to my 3mm ACW armies and the VSF elements for both wars.
Battles: I fought one! I had a few solo-playtests of Warhammer Underworlds but as far as matching my force against another, only one. I don't care for that number. I want to engage in narrative solo-gameplay and perhaps get in at least 3 games at the conventions this year.
Conventions: Recruits is on as well as the Recruits Spring Sale but ReaperCon is out this year. I would like to also make it up for Border Wars but that's during Ren Faire Cosplay season so that would be a difficult to make.
Campaigns: For this blog I want to continue work on the Spanish-American War and just perhaps the Battle of Prairie Grove in 3mm.
I want to wish anyone who reads this a happy and prosperous new year. -Auston

I am also working on a solution for GHQ terrain hex storage. I don't care for the idea of using fiddly tubs. I will post a picture of it once I've solved it.

The non-steampunk units will also see use in planned campaigns of the Spanish-American War and the Russo-Japanese War.

So basically I'm starting over. Going to take a step back and look at all that I have and begin from there. I have more models, miniatures, books and terrain in my war-room than I have space for. So I must scale back, reduce and reuse. This week I traded my old bookshelf for two new ones that accommodate model storage too, see photograph below. I am down to just one 3D printer now, an Ender 3, bottom picture. It is a great hobby tool for both terrain and miniatures. This past Fall my home war-game rules evolved into a set that I thoroughly enjoy and give me that feel of generalship. I will continue to expound on them for other periods.
I intend to move ahead with miniature photography and hunting. I've really enjoyed finding unique places to setup action figures and models for pictures. This past years hunting trips were exciting and in the case of the first wild hog hunt very intense.
