One year anniversary
On July 24, 2016 I posted my very first blog post. Although I had toyed with the idea of doing a blog to share my interest in miniature war games and toy soldiers it was not till then that I took the plunge and started my blog.
Since that time I completed 115 posts and had over 27500 visits from interested people. Best of all there are now 37 kind people who have signed up to follow this blog; and a great number of others who drop by. It has turned out so much better then I had ever hoped for. In addition to sharing my latest painting endeavours, projects and battle reports I have also gotten to meet (through the internet) a very nice group of people who share my interest. It has been especially fun to share with you my progress on the Niagara 1814 project. In a little over a year I have put together my War of 1812 armies and now completed multiple games with them. It has been great fun to see what others are doing and especially to learn from you.
For the future I plan to publish more campaigns and battle reports. While one never ever finishes a project in the world of war games I have enough painted regiments in my chosen periods to set up and play games and campaigns. So now I want to get out and fight more table top battles. These will be both with the club and with friends both here and away. Also a few solo games. Not satisfied with my battle reports I have been studying how many of you have done yours to have a better product and more interesting read. I have more terrain items I wish to add. Some are for visuals, like better mounting for woods and adding some hills. Others are for items like camps and buildings and ducks and geese in a pond! Civilians wondering about the table or farming their fields? More items to make the table more interesting. Lastly I plan on being much more proactive in answering comments and publishing comments on my and other people's blogs. I tend to be a silent lurker but hope I can change that in the future.
So thank you all so very much for spending some time here. I am most grateful for each and every visit here, and delight in your comments and encouragement. I hope in the future to continue to make this blog interesting that you continue coming back. Thank you!
