15mm cavalry and year-end wrap-up

OI'm off to Bruce's this afternoon to play a couple of games of CCN. Before I go I thought I'd post the last few figures of 2012--some more 15mm cavalry. These fellows (nobles, I think--including a couple of guys hitting the sauce) bring my painting totals to somewhere around 1600 figures and items--about half of 2011's total.

Looking back at 2012, I played am immense number of card games with my wife and daughter (hundreds, according to my BGG account). I also played a fair number of family games (Pandemic, Carcassone, Checkers, Chess). Overall, I played more than one game a day on average.

In terms of proper games, I played 26 games of HoTT/DBA, which reflects a trip to Saskatoon in June and the EDBAG campaign this fall. Then comes Maurice (12) followed by a bunch of Richard Borg games (14: Memoir 44, CCA, Battlelore, CCN).

Gaming with Bruce also meant a fair number of “wars of North America” games (9: A Few acres of Snow, 1812: The invasion of Canada, Empires in America). Then there are 18 other games (usually one- or two-offs plays at the club or with Bruce).

I’m looking forward to Academy Games 1775 game this coming year as the kickstarter was funded. I’m also keen to play more CCA (working my way through the battles of the first expansion) plus some more War of 1812 battles using DBHx.

I've spent a fair bit of the autumn thinning my collection down to games and figures I'm likely to play with in 2012. A question for me remains my large collection of Star Trek ships. I'm going to see how War Rocket can be adapted to Star Trek before making any major changes. I'm also planning a thorough desk clearing tomorrow to see what needs to be done, what can be tossed and what can go up for sale.

Up next: The last bunch of 15mm cavalry are almost painted (just working on trim colours--perhaps I'll finish tonight). I also have more buildings and a CCN battle report for the new year.
