A belated review of my 2012.

January is already over halfway and I still have to let you know what I've done in november and december!
So, belated, here it is.

First of, I did some wargaming, really!
We played a few ancient games using the excellent Clas of Empires rules. We used to play a lot of Warhammer Ancient Battles 1.0, but when 2.0 came around, we simply gave up. Armati (mostly intro scale) came next, a game we liked and played a lot. We will play this again in the future.
And now we have Clash of Empires. This looks a lot like WAB, but without the super characters. A general is just that, and not a superhero/killermachine.

I also played a few games of the popular Saga, though I don't own the rules.
You only need a handfull of figures to play, but it is a fun skirmish game. I wouldn't call it a real historical wargame, It's more a game with model soldiers than a wargame.

On to painting. After Crisis '12, I had a real surge to get some miniatures painted before the end of 2012.
I painted all the miniatures that were already primed. Some were lying in the drawere since, well lets say a very long time.
Unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with uploading pictures from my pc for the moment. So no pictures yet.
I hope to upload the pictures soon.

I also painted my first miniatures for 2013. Byzantines from Crusader Mins for a Saga warband. The warband is not finished yet, but I hope they will be in the near future.
I also painted two yurts from the fantastic Grand Manner range of scenery models. Not cheap, but probably the best you can get!
See for yourself: http://www.grandmanner.co.uk/home/Home.html
The yurts are great models for anyone having steppe nomads from Scythians over Huns to Mongols.

That's it for now.
Thanks for reading, and please comment if you like it, or not.
