I agree that some projects are never finished. For example I have all the figures needed to do Tuyuti but I need more Allied cavalry to do Lomas Valentinas.

As for truly unfinished project – those 25mm Turks have been staring at me every time I have moved their box over the last 35 years…

POLL DESCRIPTION

I'm sure we all have "someday" projects gather dust in the corners of our wargaming collections. What is the oldest that you have?

I think mine is ten years old. I was inspired by the Too Fat Lardies WWII East African supplement for I Ain't Been Shot, Mum!.

I rushed out to buy all the figures I could possibly need for the 23 scenarios, including all the random reinforcement options. And I even Tom Sawyered some of my friends into painting about half of the approximately 800 figures necessary to do all possible options. Luckily, I'd decided to try to be as economical as possible, so this was all in 6mm.

But once I got the figures back that they painted, I put them in a box that they've stayed in for now almost ten years. I never painted any of the other figures. And haven't tried basing any of the figures they painted for me.

Excuse me while I go apologize to my friends again.
