The Stronghold Rebuilt has now been running for two years, and I'm still finding things to post about. How about that?
As with the first year, for a blog that was conceived to be a repository for posts about 'Hordes of the Things', it's seen a majority of posts about other games. I could have done what other people do, and have a different blog for different types of games, and it has to be said that single-subject blogs are not without there appeal. But my ability to concentrate on one game or project for more than a few days at a time is so limited that it would be pointless; I'd have heaps of blogs in no time at all, and I have enough trouble maintaining the four that I do post in. This one get's 90% of my blog time, rest assured - the others aren't game-related*.
Anyway, I won't bore you with a run-down of the last year; I pretty much did that at the start of January. suffice to say it's been a varied year of interesting games, and I've had fun sharing them with you.
In the meantime, here's another picture of my Great Northern War Swedish infantry. I will probably give the bases a temporary coat of green until I decide how I'm going to do the army as a whole. In addition I'm not doing the flags, as I may replace the standard bearers with better figures, converted from the basic infantryman in the same way that I did the pikes. That will have to wait until the batch of Risk figures I've ordered from eBay arrives ...
And now it's time to get back to painting the Swedish cavalry and artillery. My aim is to have all figures, if not the bases, completed by the end of the weekend. It's raining here, so I can't see us going out anywhere.
