I repeat this statement:"Sadly not much progress on the cloudship front,shame on me
So what for 2014?Stop getting carried away on new things (how likely is that?)and finish all the outstanding projects!
Workbench things to do 2013
Martian Cavalry 60%-Finish but I've bought some more for 2014......fool!Another 45 Gashants.Which are somewhere in a UK customs store at the moment.According to a letter/tax import bill I got yesterday.No chance of them seeing the table with less than three weekends to paint them.But at least they are closer to home :)
Scots rifle section 30% -Finished
Imperial Russian unit 10%-Finished but I'd like some cavalry in 2014.We'll have to see.
Countesses Guard 10%-Finished.
British Patrol Boat 10%-Finished.
British Aerial Patrol Boat 70%-Finished but not happy with the stand.
Large Martian Cloud ship 60%-About 80% done but I'm finding it hard going.I keep hinting strength and weight problems combined with balance.
Large Martian Cloudship 100%-See above.
Small Martian Cloudship 100%-See above.
Air Pirate skiff 70%-90%- See above.
Martian Fortified Manor 60%-No further than before,having problems with the angled walls.

Martian baggage train with Martian wagons etc. 90%-No further progress.
New Projects for 2013:
Belgian Martian Force-European Officers, Martian Colonial Troops-platoon to company strength-Finished.
Imperial Nippon Martian Forces -Officers and infantry.-Not started yet.2014 maybe.I've sourced the minis I think will do the job from Copplestone and Oshiro.I've seen others this year us them to great effect.
Russian Imperial militia/armed workers/farmers-Not started yet.2014 maybe,Copplestone are favorite for some of these.
More cavalry for Mars-Please see above.RAFM minis have landed on UK soil,hurrah!
SOA Airship-Started but the core model (Golden Compass airship)was too heavy.I'm looking for something else to replace it.
Imperial German Airship-Started but hit a snag.The carriage needs redesigning,the blimp is too small really but I just can't find anything bigger than the Revell Hindenburg model.
Imperial German Tripod unit-1 tripod finished.For now one will have to do.
Martian city streets urban high status/former high status with towers-Well more buildings in cork.I still haven't added wall lights etc.More a case of how to avoid breakage when storing away.
Venus Forces-Parrotmen(can’t have Venus without parrotmen no matter who’s canon you tend to follow) more lizardmen, transport ,etc.-Well I started them but the whole unit isn't fully finished yet.
Buildings- Plantations, Trading Posts, Native villages/camps, urban areas , Ether Port.-Well I've made some advances on these as you will know if you have been following the blog.But while I've sourced all the bits and finished some there are some big buildings yet to be finished.Nor have I started on the Parrotmen village.I've the bits but haven't got round to putting them together.Blame the lizardman for that lol.
1950’s-1960’s space project revived. Minis ,buildings , space ships etc.-I've sourced possible suitable minis but VSF has kept me busy.
