More of a R.I.P than a D.I.Y. this page is dedicated to past armies that lost their way or fell victim to the Roman Candle approach I have towards my war-gaming projects. The idea for the page came about as I was trolling the net looking for potentially new armies (damn you evil Internet with all your goodies). It was while trying to justify the cost of a new WoR army that I came to the following conclusions.
Firstly: I now have more armies and rule systems than I can actually play on any sort of a regular basis. Take my two Flames of War armies for example, I can’t remember the last time these were on the table. Any thoughts of a game now would require a complete reread of that rather bulky rule book, and even then I suspect I would spend a large proportion of the game asking a bunch of ridiculously stupid questions.
Secondly: I have and awful lot of stalled/dead projects stashed in cupboards and boxes all about the house, 20mm WWII, Space Hulk, etc……. Which I am now digging out and selling off.
Lastly the most startling conclusion of all, where has everything gone? All those armies I lovingly painted over the years, now gone, sold, lost, burnt, fried up with eggs and bacon or simply given away and what do I have to show for it? An odd photo or two for some armies, but sadly for most nothing at all.
