Let's look on the bright side! Now that you're quarantined, confined to home, not working, etc., what hobby project are you excited to put more time into? grin

(I'm trying to be positive about this, sorry if you're sick, not working, etc. – I always try to think of those times as 'unemployment vacations'.)

Painting 28mm ACW Union infantry.

I am finally going to start on some Greek mythology miniatures to do some low level skirmish/rpg light gaming using some Two Hour Wargames rules. Ideal for solo, so that should workout well.

Working on my River Crossing game, as wrote elsewhere a game for me can be 2-3 weeks easy but might have this done in few days.

I'm still working. That said, last month was 15mm zombies, this month is a 25mm Greek mythology project and a 25mm witch hunter project, and next month might be some 54mm Napoleonics. I'm trying to make dents in projects by working on them for a month at a time.

Painting 28mm Confederate infantry.

I'll probably spend some time organizing my rules collection. I tend to buy, print, stick in a drawer, can't find, print again, stick in the same drawer, wonder why I have multiple copies.

I've nearly finished the current mixed batch of 25/28mm civilian figures and a few bits of terrain (which has got a bit boring), next up is a load of 1/3000 Napoleonic ships (from the lead pile), then the recently arrived Navwar C16 galleys (enough to do a scaled down Battle of Lepanto when the crisis is over and my club can meet as normal), and then I might have a go at scratch-building a few of Henry VIII's warships (for reasons I can't fully understand). Not that I'm in favour of having a plan….

1.) Going through my collection and making sure everything is magnetized and move ready:

TMP link

2) Finishing off all my WIP, whihc means hopping from 28mm giants to 6mm buildings to 1/600 Aeronefs, and back again…

I am torn between doing my Victrix Vikings, or making a start on my AWI American army!

As I'm retired one day is much like another except now my outside forays are very limited. But ….

Painting vintage 25mm Prussian and British Napoleonics for my 1813 North Central Germany project, followed by a return to 28mm French Turcos and Zouaves for the Franco-German War (1870-1871).

Besides the ongoing Renaissance Ottoman Marathon, I'm starting on a battalion of British Paras for Arnhem

First in the queue are assorted terrain projects for Post Apoc and Fantasy.
I'll work my way down the list as the situation develops.

Get started on both armies for the siege of Dien Bien Phu in 15mm. If I get bored with that I can always expand the collection of monsters and bad guys for Frostgrave/Ghost Archipelago or try to salvage at least some of the WSS units that were in that box that fell off the roof of my car on I-10 (two years ago).


Lost Wolf21 Mar 2020 6:55 p.m. PST

Putting decals on Viking shields, finish LoTR terrain, and clean up hobby room and the man cave.

"Project" singular? You are so, so funny. I have many, many projects waiting to go.

I am sorta seriously considering a DBN matched pair of armies for the 1809 campaign.

I've already painted a sample figure and undercoated the first batch of AB Austrian fusiliers last night. May have to get organised quick though, since I'll need a few more bits and pieces before everything closes down for the long night.

Winter is coming here too.

I just started to paint my Hudson and Allen Castles that I bought years and year ago

150 points of British for Team Yankee.

Martin Rapier21 Mar 2020 11:56 p.m. PST

I'm just working through the lead pile, finishing off some German WW2 artillery at the moment and I'll do some solo games.

Will this mean I finally paint that Baccus 6mm ACW army I've had in storage for a while? We shall see.

Ive also got some terrain to make.

Finally assembling my 2mm Roman and Gallic armies, painting up my copy of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, and working through my unpainted 15mm fantasy pile.

A return to 25mm Sci Fi found a load of buildings I forgot I had.

Greylegion22 Mar 2020 5:30 p.m. PST

Working on 28mm Sci-Fi terrain. Also working on same type buildings I bought but haven't painted yet.

14Bore23 Mar 2020 9:27 a.m. PST

Being that read Hell in a very small place twice in my life, as a young teenager and bought a copy last year I would love to take a shot at that as a game.
