Wargames Projects - an addiction

Thinking about the wargames projects that I have in various stages of completion I started to create myself a list just so I could get a clear picture of what remains to be done. It has shown me that despite my best efforts I've easily succumbed to the habit of the wargaming butterfly of starting new projects without finishing others. Though in 20mm with WWII it is hard to actually cover everything unless you are very strict about which campaign you are gaming.

Now to resist the siren call of a few other periods like the Old West, WWI and skirmish actions in Africa.

All scales/periods
  • Base terrain and gaming boards - started buying paints and materials. 
  • Planning game specific requirements, e.g. Hordes of the Things Strongholds, terrain elements for AK47 Republic and Battles in the Age of War
  • Flintloque - actually progressing at least with painting plenty of miniatures. 
  • Feudal/Medieval - most of my collection is painted I just need to decide on whether to rebase and make a few additions and complete the last unpainted figures. 
  • Fantasy - mostly painted, just want to see that I've got enough stuff together to field a couple of warbands for Song of Blades and Heroes. 
  • Erin - Irish myth cycle. Got enough miniatures to play and the rules, now just need to get painting. 
  • Samurai - bought a number of minis but I need to settle on rules and composition of units to progress this one. 
  • World War II late war Western Front (Ardennes & Hurtgen Forest) - lots of US and German infantry painted up, just need some vehicles and support weapons and I'm well set up. 
  • WWII Normandy campaign - still planning really though I do have German infantry, weapons and vehicles I can use. 
  • WWII Eastern Front - Still more of a plan though I do have some miniatures painted. 
  • Biblical era DBA - Hebrew, Philistine and Egyptians. Minis bought now just need to paint them up.
  • SF - got a fair number of the minis painted and a couple of sets of rules so really time to get some games running. 
  • American Civil War - lots in progress, just need to get some rebasing of some older minis done and a few guns, command and cavalry painted up and I can get games running. 
  • Hordes of the Things - about the only thing for these armies I need is appropriate strongholds and some terrain.
  • Battles in the Age of War - Samurai. A completely non started project apart from getting all the minis together. 
  • AK47 Republic -got an army pack so don't require minis and now started on painting so progress is there. 

10mm - all still at the stage of minis bought but no further progress.

  • Spanish Civil War
  • French and Indian War
  • Colonial (Zulu War)
