While 2020 has a few days remaining before the calendar is ripped apart, thoughts have been drifting toward painting goals for 2021. Still too early to formalize goals and objectives but I lean toward two new projects in 2021. Of course, current projects will continue to see a steady flow of paint as well.
On painting goals, I smashed my expectations on 2020 targets. Details on the number of figures crossing my painting desk will be illustrated in a year-end wrap-up in a week or two when I release a barrage of graphics. A goal of 900 painted figures was my target but managed to paint about 1,500. Still, The Lead Pile does not look noticeably smaller.
The planned refight of Rivoli 1797 should be ready to kick-off near the anniversary date of the battle, perhaps, near the second week of January. As final preparations are put in order, a second call to arms to armchair generals interested in participating in order writing and decision-making will go out. Four readers showed interest before. We will see if these four are still interested and whether others may join in.
On the gaming front, remote gaming seems in full swing. A refight of the WotR Battle of Wakefield was fought yesterday with the Lancastrians controlling the field but the Yorkists accomplishing their pre-battle objectives. It was a good, solid fight and great fun. For Graham's account of the action, please visit Wakefield: Won and Lost. Anyone guess as to the period of a possible 2021 project?
