I haven't touched this project since 14 November 2014.

I actually started off quite well with this project this year I managed to get quite a few bits finished however I still don't have two opposing armies to play with so strictly speaking another failure lol.

I've actually done quite a bit with this project during the year rebased the lot of old stuff Re-painted a lot of the buildings for the Stalingrad project which have been ongoing now for ages
