I can't start a new year without a new blog so I have decided to lump all my steampunk and other Victoriana into a new one called Legatus' Victoriana Wargames. This will cover In Her Majesty's Name, Empire of the Dead and anything else which is nineteenth century skirmish based and outside Africa (I have a hankering for Wild West this year!). One of the things I want to do this year is go back to the neglected blogs and try to do at least one thing for each so they don't look quite so sadly abandoned.
Of course, this brings the number of my wargaming blogs to 22. Some people have wondered why I don't consolidate all my posts into one blog. Well, apart from the fact it's too late to go back at this stage, I really like having separate ones for each period as I am often reminded of something I have half finished by looking at the various blog titles and thinking something like "now, where is that half finished unit of Carthaginian veterans?" I set up the first blog to focus my painting (hollow laugh) and I do find that even if I don't do any painting I can at least do something on one of the blogs (especially if I am abroad).
The first proper post (I have copied my other appropriate posts across too) is of my newly painted West Wind Allan Quatermain. I have to acknowledge that Sofie's Paint Table Saturday is giving me a boost to get stuff done at the weekend and I am now evolving, for 2014, a process of working on one unit and one character at a time.
