My painting table right now. 2mm Napoleonics started. 15mm Napoleonics (Marines of the Guard). 6mm Colonials getting basing. BMP1s awaiting varnish, BMP2s awaiting basing. Plus a Celtic village. I'm using the plinths as fields (never really understood the point of those plinths). Plus a variety of other odds and ends, as usual.

You've got a freakin' Time Traveler's World War going on there. What rules are you planning to use for that mish-mash? Might I suggest "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids and They Are Really Mad", aka HIST KaTARM.

Your photo belies your headline: that's an extremely well-organized table. Everything in it's place, and a place for everything!

It's not half as chaotic as mine ….

Well, by my standard that's practically a sign of the apocalypse.

Should have it all finished this week though, then back to neat and tidy!

I too have a tendency to juggle different projects and units at the same time. By doing so I'm never waiting for paint to dry. I can just move on to the next and once I come back to the beginning of the rotation that unit is ready for it's next coat. If you have room I'd suggest getting a few hard plastic cutting boards. Each of my units has its own board and I have a shelf next to the desk I can store them so the desk stays neat……well relatively neat. Glad to see you have so much fun stuff going on and happy hobbying!

Chaos? That is down write orderly compared to mine.
