2014 did I hit my gaming targets .

Firstly Happy New Year in January 2014 I set some targets for myself for my wargaming , these were my targets :

This year I am going to attempt to :
Finish off my Cold War Gone Hot Project .                     
Finish off my Zulu War project . 
Add a little more to my Witch Finder General stuff .
Finish my WW1 Project 
Complete my 7tv Bond cast
Complete my 7tv Tarzan cast
Complete my zombie project 
Complete the Dr Who stuff I have in my pile Before buying more
Paint all the FIW stuff I have before buying more
finish my Ronin 
finish my ww2 germans .
Finish my Saga Vikings
Make and buy more terrain to suit above projects 

Not to get involved in anything else 

Play more games at home, club and shows . 


Cold War Gone Hot - sort of , I finished my B.A.O.R (barring 2 harriers which are partly done )  but started a west German and Russian armies .

Zulu War - No but I have made a slight dint in the lead and plastic pile hoping to have enough done to put on a Rorkes Drift game which I am trying to write the rules for as well 

Witch finder - yes happy with this ,although I do have some bits to paint I do have enough stuff to game with .

WW1 -A resounding failure done nothing at all .

7tv Bond  -See ww1

7TV Tarzan -See 7TV Bond &WW1

Complete my Zombie project - Although I have painted loads ....see7TVBond ,7TV Tarzan etc.

Dr Who painted loads but bought loads so sort of see 7TV Bond Etc

FIW - Happy with this just handful of Rangers to paint .

Ronin-  Hurray did it 

WW2 Germans - See 7TV Bond Etc.

Saga Vikings - See 7TV Bond Etc. 

Terrain -happy got a lot done for FIW and Zulu .

Not to get involved in anything else .....A massive Failure  got into 6mm moderns bought loads of the 7TV starters .........

Play more games - Sort of a success  Ran Games of Cold War Gone hot at Triples and 6mm moderns at the joy of six. At SWGS managed to get a couple of games in and visit a lot more and I managed to get a few games in at my workplace at night in the function room about 2 cold war gone hot , 2 6mm modern and a FIW game. At home been play testing my Zulu rules and got a game of Cthulu in . 

Overall not brilliant but I have been in Hospital for my throat op then back in Hospital when I nearly died , got promoted at work ,had a new Grand Daughter, discovered who my Dad (sadly passed away ) was and discovered 2 new sisters and a new brother ,plus my fund raising was very successful this year so I think I have reasonable excuses .

For 2015 - Get the zulus done for triples ,run another game at Joy of Six and rejoin SWGS and get down more , anything else will be a bonus .The Zulu game should be ok , the joy of six stuff is being done by my partner in crime John Grayson ,club wise I have booked the friday off before triples to help them set up so thats a start .
