I've referenced Hobby A.D.D. before and although I generally feel like I get quite a lot of stuff done there are periods where my attention span won't stay on one thing and I keep changing gears and starting new projects without finishing old ones.
So with that insight in mind I'd like to share the 5 hobby projects I started over the past 3 days, none of which are completed yet.
I've been talking for awhile about getting some new cowboys done. I got my grubby hands on Dracula's America and even though I have a decent amount of stuff done from my recent binge of Warhammer Legends Of The Old West I can't bring myself to play a new game without adding at least some new figures. These guys are the Earp (or Tombstone I forget the actual name) pack by Black Scorpion.
As part of my recent retro/nostalgia-gaming fix I got some of the Orcs by Antediluvian Miniatures. These guys immediately take me back to Saturday mornings in the early 80s. I think my gift to myself when I get all 5 of these projects done will be to get myself another pack or two of Antediluvian Miniatures.
Those Orcs need a boss, right? I might be one of the few people of my generation who could never really embrace Optimus Prime as a noble hero because every time he opens his mouth to speak I hear Venger's voice. Venger was the chief villain of the animated D&D series in the 80s and still holds up really well as a cool fantasy evil villain.
I'm planning a long overdue return to Felstad and much like the cowboys I probably don't need to paint new figures but I just wouldn't be me if I rolled up with the same-old-same-old. The actual driver for starting these was digging through my unpainted fantasy figures looking for a knight with two-handed sword to try the free print-and-play intro rules for Relic Blade with my newly painted pigmen.
Almost a year ago I ordered a bunch of packs of modern/near-future survivor models with the intention of using them for This Is Not A Test as well as Last Days. Unfortunately my experience in purchasing these models was not 'free of hassles' and when they finally arrived I had lost any and all enthusiasm I had for them. (This was one of the customer service things I was up on a soapbox about earlier this year.) It has literally taken me an entire year to even look at these miniatures again but once I picked them up I decided I really did want to get paint on them. Oddly enough it wasn't until I looked at them up close I even realised who they were supposed to be. I had ordered them thinking they would make good pseudo Division-style trained survivors but then when I cleaned and primed them I realised they are actually the two leads from Stargate SG-1.
Well there you have it. Nothing done, but a bunch of projects that are each one sit-down away from completion.
