Happy Blogday '28mm Victorian Warfare'...

...6 today
Today marks the sixth anniversary of the creation of this humble weblog, something that I find quite staggering given my complete inability to focus on anything for any given period of time. This has become particularly evident in the wide range of projects often started, but then callously abandoned. There have even been suggestions that the title banner be torn down and a new one proclaiming something along the lines of ‘28mm Whatever’ be hoisted up instead. 
The fact of the matter is that there are just too many shiny temptations out there for me to resist. There are signs that, I am starting to have more of an idea as to where my hobby time is headed and I was heartened by the fact that when I sat down to consider what I might want to look for at ‘Salute’ this year there were very few surprises. ‘Congo’ is certainly on the wish list as this fits loosely into the tales of derring-do of the late Victorian era, but of the surprises, I am still intrigued by Black Ops and have been considering possible scenarios based around this. In addition there has been the playful exploration of the Ghostbusters world and the possibility of looking to expand this to include Mystery Inc. doing battle with various Hollywood monsters. I have to confess that I have no idea how this might work, but I do so enjoy the fun of it all.
So another year done and there would appear to be life in the old weblog yet! I think part of the reason that I have stuck with the idea of posting my progress has been the level of support and genuine comradery that has been a most welcome by-product of the process. I am very fortunate to have met some of the more persistent commentators and often humbled by their generosity of spirit with regards to all things ‘hobby’.

So once again I need to thank all of you that stop by ‘28mm Victorian Warfare’, but particularly those that leave the odd comment; your encouragement greatly appreciated.

  2. Happy blogday - still one of the most inspiring blogs out there. I say it every year, but this was the one of the ones that inspired me to start and you were the most helpful person in getting my blog actually working. Without you I dare say, there would be a lot fewer blogs out there.

  35. Happy Blogiversary mate! You're not the only one with acute shinyitis and I really enjoy seeing each time the next thing to have grabbed your attention...

  36. Love reading your musings and seeing your inspiring paint jobs. I've only just started bloody wargaming and I have an addiction to shiny things. I've got a considerable lead mountain before I've even rolled a die in anger!

    Witchfinder General, Pikeman's Lament, By Fire and Sword, Congo, Empire of the Dead...help! Stop the train! No, don't. It's too enjoyable...

  43. A rather belated congratulations on the anniversary!

    We're enjoying "Congo" very much at the moment; I imagine that it would suit you well.

    I've tried a Scooby Doo game before; it didn't really work too well. Maybe you'll do better?
