Napoleonics, ACW and North Africa, Oh My!
So I decided that my pick and mix approach to painting wasn't getting me anywhere fast, and something needed to be done about it. I'm blessed to have just about enough figures to make two opposing core forces for three different theatres of war.
So I decided to make use of my social media presence, diminutive though it is, and see what my friends thought. I decided to be clever and put a poll on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
Let's deal with my Facebook post first. I decided it was best placed on my page StiuMac's Worlds in Miniature. Of course, once I had begun, I realized that the poll option wasn't available on pages. Sigh. So I wrote it all down and thought I was clever asking people to vote by making a comment. You can see how well that one turned out:
Thankfully things turned out slightly more helpfully on Google+.
This is actually a good thing, as I personally began to favour this project over the others once I had launched these polls. I've always wanted to game this period. I've long been put off for fear of criticism from the purists and experts. But my experience with the overwhelming feedback I have received on social media have put those fears away. All I've got to do now is get on with it!
And finally, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to vote on my polls. I appreciate your time and thoughtful input. And if the Napoleonic period wasn't your preferred choice, please rest assured that I will be working on these other projects soon. In fact, if I end up reverting to my old ways, then that may happen sooner than any of us think!
