Happy New Year

Normally I'd review the previous year's progress but as I finished so little in the last year it hardly seemed worthwhile! The fifty or so figures I have painted up this year have all been 54mms, which is just about all I'm capable of atm. 
My Christmas haul,  in hobby terms, as is usual, was very small, just a single book (as shown). It's a book about the campaigns of the British and Egyptian forces in the Sudan (just in case you're not familiar with the illustration on the cover). I'm looking forward to reading this at a leisurely pace, having only had a quick scan of its contents so far.
My hobby intentions for this year are limited to tidying up my wargames table and painting area, whilst trying to make some progress on my storage issues. If I can find things to post about, then I'll keep posting, but playing games doesn't seem very likely atm.
Christmas went a bit pear-shaped when we cancelled dinner at #2 son's house, due to Covid (of course) and consequently there was four less than the usual ten around our table !
I trust though that this year will be better for all of us, it can;t be any worse can it ?
 
So here's wishing a HAPPY NEW YEAR to all reading this and stay safe !
