Back in 2017 I wrote a post, a Self Indulgence – the Wargaming Tasks for 2017 which was, really, a self indulgence. Doubly so as I achieved the following in the two years since then … painted 24 tanks for the Cold War Poles, 12 for the Cold War Danes and prepped the rest of the Poles. So, the painting queue then is still there in the painting queue now.
I also noted that apart from the items illustrated in that painting queue (none of which have had anything done to them), I had a few other items on that list including:
- Anthony’s 20mm World War II British
- Finish off the 1/285 scale World War II Japanese
- 1/285 scale World War II Hungarians
- 1/300 scale Cold War Commander Danes to be completed
- 1/1200 scale Coastal Warfare Ships
- The 1/3000 scale Jutland Fleets
- Houston Ships Italians and Austrians from the Battle of Lissa
- Dystopian Wars fleets, and
I am pleased to report that over the past two years, while doing some work on Anthony’s 20mm World War II British, they are not yet finished (although I am planning on correcting that error tonight as I reckon they are my painting block).
I did complete the 1/300 scale Cold War Commander Danes … mostly. There is a useable army there with reinforcements in the form of some Leopard tanks but there are still about 12 bases of Infantry that can be painted and added to that army to finalize it.
The 1/1200 Coastal Warfare boats and ships have been based and undercoated and I have also added Italian MAS boats to the collection.
And that is all.
So, to all of the above, which is still outstanding I have added to the paint queue by either order or bringing from Oz:
- 6mm Prussians – 1813 Napoleonic Prussians. I actually started these back on 2010 but have bundled them up and brought them over from Oz – Heroics and Ros figures
- Some 6mm Napoleonic Poles – Baccus 6mm I think
- Some 6mm Napoleonic German states – Adler I think (actually I need to sort points 2 and 3 out one Saturday afternoon)
- 6mm Baccus Napoleonic Brunswickers and Dutch Belgians (on order) – don’t ask me why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time
- My 1/3000 Russo-Japanese War fleets – with about half of the vessels repainted into more correct colours
- A 6mm Baccus English Civil War started set – both sides. I am trying to decide however whether to use them for the English Civil War or the Thirty Years War. That internal debate should keep them off the painting queue for some time
- Heroics and Ros, and Rapier Miniatures, 6mm Greeks for yet another Ancient project
- Heroics and Ros 6mm modern French for Cold War Commander
- Fujimi 1/3000th Pacific War World War II ships. These are nice, see Fujimi Navwar 1/3000 Naval Vessels Ready for Paint for images
- Seven fleet packs from Navwar – 1/3000 scale ships, for:
- Modern British
- Modern Dutch
- Modern French
- Modern Italian
- Modern US
- World War I Argentinian
- World War I Brazilian
So, add to that the other stock items here such as the fleets from the Battle of Matapan, Philippine Sea and Jutland and you can see that if a wargamer never dies while ever he has items to paint, I should live tp about 150.
Oh, and to add to all that, I brought a couple of boardgames back that I really want to get some game time on!
My painting queue, an indulgence indeed!
