What I'm doing this week.

Alright, now that the obligatory introduction is out of the way it's time for my first real post.  My current projects entail.

1.) Remodeling the basement into a fully functional gaming room.
        This one has been a long time in coming.  Previously our basement was mostly a junk storage area that looked a little like something out of hoarders.  I had a kitchen size table down there with a War Zone Terrain 4'x6' foldable tabletop on it.  A couple weeks ago we got all of the junk out of the basement.  I've also begun searching for a good storage system for my pile 'o lead.  More on that later.  The next step will be building a new purpose built gaming table.  I have plans to work on that this coming week.

2.) 15mm American Civil War.
        This is a rebirth of an old interest.  In the early '90's our group was big into Fire and Fury.  I was in college at the time, so while I found time to play the game, I never found the time to paint up an army.  Recently, Tad (one of the gang) and I pulled out his ACW stuff for a couple games.  I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it.  I immediately ordered a couple of brigade packs from Scale Creep Miniatures and got painting.  I finished my first brigade (the Iron Brigade--see my location) a week ago, and am starting on my first confederate brigade.  Pictures to follow.

3.)  Firestorm Armada.
        Gaming pal John and I have been getting in a few games of Firestorm Armada recently.  I've got an Aquan Starter Fleet finished, but wanted to add some variety, so I need to finish up my new ships, 6 Mine Escorts, 1 Heavy Cruiser, and 1 Battle Carrier.  These are mostly done, just need a couple highlights.

Other potential projects include: 15mm Flames of War early war germans, a new Barbarian character for Warhammer Quest, and a squad of Striking Scorpions for my Warhammer 40k Eldar.

It's going to be a busy week.
