444 Followers ! Thank you very much to you all !!! and especially thanks to the 85 new one that signed up during 2014, very appreciated !



Fot the year to come...or have started I suppose...2015... It is really nice to look forward and make new plans, that is all what wargaming and miniature painting are...new greate projects ;)

Kalmar Union War 
Of course will I continure my main epic project about the 15th century Swedish civil war in the shadow of the Kalmar Union. Got a bunch om minis already painted, allmoge... but my lead and plastic pile for this project still have some minis in it, and there will probably be more sins the Perrys have more minis on their way...light cavalry, any one?



Håtunaleken
By the end of last year I and some mateys started up a Lion Rampant Club Campaign revolving around the "Håtunaleken" (Håtuna-Games) a Swedish Game of Thrones, set in the early decade of the 14th century. I like the setting very much and I hope the campaign will run at least during the spring.



Greate Northern War
A new project that my matey Sören are lure us in to... its a spin off effect of last years Scanian War project... So now some of the club members have started to paint Swedes and Russians for 1708. I of course have to contribute with at least dalregementet... but if I get the inspiration I also will paint one or two russian regiments... 28mm ofcourse...

Playtesting
I have been asked to help out with the playtesting of Dan Mersey´s (Dux Bellorum, Lion Rampant) new rules, wich I ofcourse gladly accepted as I and Dan had a really greate co-operation during the Lion Rampant process. Now I just looking for the Swedish angle of his new rules so I can get in to painting some dedicated minis for it. I don´t think it is any official note of what era the rules are, so I will not mention yet. As well there are no release date, but it took 2 years for Lion Rampant...

Some more unofficial stuff are in the pipeline, but I have to wait for some days, weeks or month before I can blog about it... ;)

  2. With such an industrious year behind you, you may be excused for taking things a bit easy at the moment. :)

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with over the coming year, and hopefully I can get down to the club for some more regularly gaming than in the past couple of months. I'm especially keen to play some Kalmar Union War games, as it's been far too long since we did!
