Well, a new month, so it's time to look back on the stats and my goals.
End of August Stats:
Page Views: 35634 (4976 in August - a drop from previous levels, but it was August so I guess people were off on holidays)

Not bad going overall, considering the time of year.
Painting - I didn't do any work on the Scythians or SciFi figures, nor did I get round to painting up my 30YW camp bits, ambush markers and casualties. However, I did get the planned commanders, dragoons, reiters and artillery done, as well as the remaining 2 regiments of foot. I'll give myself a score of 1/3 for this goal.
Gaming - my Swiss defeated the Seljuks, I did get in a game of FoG:R (my first) and a couple of games of Saga. However, I didn't manage to get in a game of Tomorrow's War. 3/4 for this goal
Blogging - I still didn't get round to doing any book reviews, so this goal gets a big fat 0/1. Maybe it just isn't meant to happen?
Overall? 4/8 goals achieved. That's not too bad really when you consider how stretching my painting goals were.
Plans for September
30YW - 2 bases of dragoons; extra figures to upgrade foot regiments to 9 bases each; 2 musket-only regiments; 2 more artillery bases; camp bits and ambush markers. Prep the "Croat" light horse and the extra cuirassiers; maybe prep the rest of the stuff I've got (casualties, artillery limbers, 2 regiments of "late war" horse).
Scythians - paint up the 24 light horse - I might need them for the Derby tournament in October
SciFi - it would be nice to finish at least one of the batches I started several months back. I might use this week to make up a couple of the model kits I've got for SF gaming, particularly the A7V tank which will be the basis for my Chewk's "sandcrawler" (for which I also need to get some bits and bobs like AC units, comms dishes to accessorise it)
If the winners of the "painted by Tamsin" prize draws (I still haven't had the figures from Andy for the last one) get their figures to me, the Scythians and SciFi stuff will get bumped down the priority list.
FoG:AM - I probably need to get a game or two in with my Sarmatians/Alans before Derby, but probably won't have any games with the Swiss until October.
FoG:R - get a couple of games in ahead of our club's ECW tournament. At 650pts, the games should be pretty quick. I've managed to get the New Model Army list (how appropriate for a punk/goth) so I just need to look at the list and plan my army.
Saga - probably a game or two
I will try to keep up my average of roughly 1 post a day, although with being away for a few days that might not be possible (unless I use some of my time off this week to actually do those book reviews and queue them to auto-post while I'm away).
Well, that's enough text - here's a teaser pic of the flags assembled and drying:
