What's on Your Table?

Taking a clue from another blogger, I decided to take accounting of my various projects and found that I have indeed managed to bury myself under projects AGAIN. I say again, because I one time, I had actually managed to cut myself some slack and expunge a few of my "go nowhere projects". These were mainly things that had one time shown promise but later proved fruitless. At any rate, I have managed to gather myself an assortment of new projects.

At this time, I have the following projects that I am actively working on -
  • Aeronef Fleet. Designing master for eventual molding and casting. I have the designs in mind and sketched out, but just need to get the masters built.

  • Land Ironclads. Converting and collecting figures to build a couple of forces. This is coming along nicely, though right now I'm strictly on a convert what I have basis. I haven't bought anything new for this, which is kind of cool.

  • Hordes Troll Bloods. I have a ton of these guys but have yet to even start painting them.


  • 28mm Parrot Men. Converting 40K Kroot into pulp scifi aliens. I have about 16 of these guys. I am currently gathering bits to do a few leader/personality types before I start painting.

  • Zombie Miniatures Project. 50+ zombies including dogs and pigs. A couple of survivor bands including one made up entirely of armed postal workers. Working on more zombie animals, including zombified zoo animals, starting with an elephant.

  • 15mm Scifi Army. Converting and painting figs from various sources for a 15mm hard scifi setting. I have a couple of platoons worth of modern Israelis and some AT-43 TacArms that I'm using for this. The TacArms are joining some converted15mm M551 Sheridans for a light assault force.

  • 15mm Fallschirmjagers. These guys are not finished after a coupe years in my hands. I love them, but all that fiddly camouflage is driving me mad. I have enough for a strengthened company in Flames of War including all manner of vehicle support.

  • Terrain. There is always terrain to be made, but I would like to try working on something a bit more structured than the wilderness stuff I have been working on.

  • 28mm Pulp Figs. Haven't played in a bit, but still building up. I still have Chinese bandits and mobsters that need to be finished and haven't even started painting my masked mercenaries. I also have plenty of characters and heroes to finish as well as some beasties.

  • Superfigs. I keep planning on this one, but have yet to settle on a team or find/get all the right figs for a team. I have a couple of robots I am converting for my criminal organization but I haven't found henchmen that pop for me. I do have some aliens that need painting but I'm also gathering figs for a fun project building a sort of half-cracked anti-hero team based on characters from various Rob Zombie songs.

  • 6mm Trojan War. This is sort of a dream project and I have a few figs I picked up for proof of concept but haven't started the project full on. So far I have been focusing on the Trojan Allies as they are more diverse and therefore enjoyable to collect.

  • Survival Horror. This is really in the development/experimental stage but I am trying to develop a fun and effective miniatures game for this genre.
It may not be as huge a list as some out there and I am sure I'm forgetting something, but it is still a mountain of work for me and there are always new projects popping to mind all the time. I also split my hobby time between various RPGs and board games as well.

Let's see how it all shapes up,

-Eli
