A Crisis of Indecision … Again

I’ve finally completed the first batch of vessels and aircraft for my little coastal wars set. I will get around to posting photographs in a day or so. The crisis arrives as now I need to decide what to do next and I do have a lot in the lead pile. I was thinking of:

  • Finish off the coastal set as I have to paint:
    1. Italians
    2. More Germans
    3. More British
  • Do some other naval, such as:
    1. World War One
    2. Matapan Fleets
    3. Early World War 2 Germans and British
    4. My Spanish Civil War Fleets
    5. Argentinian and Brazilian World War One Fleets
    6. US World War One Fleet
    7. Soviet World War Two Fleet
    8. US and Japanese Pacific Fleets
    9. British Pacific Fleet
  • Finish my Moderns (Italians, Dutch, French)
  • Paint some 6mm figures such as:
    1. Classical Punic Wars (5 armies left to paint)
    2. Greeks (fousands of ’em)
    3. Dark Age Set (five armies left to paint there)
    4. Napoleonic Prussian
  • Victorian Science Fiction (Aeronefs and similar including 2mm ground forces)
  • Science Fiction
  • 6mm World War Two land forces including:
    1. Belgians
    2. French
    3. Early War Germans
    4. Late War British, American, Soviet or German
    5. Hungarians
    6. Finish the Japanese
  • World War 2 aerial – late war bombers and fighters
  • Modern Armies such as my Poles etc

Sigh – decisions, decisions. There are other items in the lead pile such as English Civil War, Dutch/Belgian and Polish Napoleonics, Napoleonic ships (1/2400 scale), and Ancient and Renaissance Galleys. I think I will need a burger and two beers to make this decision 🙂

Late note: I managed the burger and two beers, but am still undecided!

      I’ve seen them online, they do look nice. As for storage, I have been considering the same for Aeronefs for a while. Magnets. I’m thinking of magnets and then I can store without the stands attached

      and Happy New Year mate – here’s hoping that 2021 is an improvement 🙂

      Decided that it won’t be Aeronefs … I can’t find my magnets. That also rules out late World War 2 Air Warfare.

      The Italians are looking good as a quick and easy project.

    Focus in 2021 Ian and complete the coastal set. Happy New Year my friend.

      And a Happy New Year to you too. Current focus for the New Year is leaning towards finishing the coastal project, Aeronefs or related, completing the World War 2 Italians (gives me an excuse to buy more figures for an opposition*), and the Argentinian and Brazilian World War 1 fleet packs (and maybe some WW2 German ships just because).

      * and since when does a wargamer need an excuse 🙂

    So many choices.

    Open a nice bottle of whiskey and roll a die…but try to “complete”* a period if possible.

    Is this actually possible…I still have Prussians for my Napoleonics and at least a Brigade for my CSA, and all the flags for both sides…not mentioning terrain…too many things to do, not enough retirement.
