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.
