I May Have Overacheived – Wargame Figures Breeding

I thought I would write a quick, self-indulgent, “what are the Wargaming plans for 2017” post. I thought a good place to start may be to audit that lead pile here. Crap. It is way bigger than I thought and after three hours checking boxes, identifying the contents and making a note, I have decided that this will become Saturday’s task.

I knew I had some Aeronefs here and some 6mm figures to paint but after failing to quickly identify two 6mm ancient DBA armies (I will need to take them out of the bag and look closely at the figures) as well as only getting through half the unpainted Aeronefs, I threw in the towel for tonight.

Identified so far are 6 Aeronef forces (overachieved), two Starmada fleets, five 6mm DBA armies, 6 land ironclad armies (minus the vehicles), one land ironclads army’s vehicles, a butt-load of 2mm (1/1200) terrain items, 1/3000 scale WW1 ships, 1/1200 Houston ships, 1/1200 coastal vessels, 1/300 BKCII Japanese and Hungarians, two 15mm DBA armies, 1/1200 modern aircraft, 1/285 Winter War air forces and Anthony’s 20mm World War 2 Brits, I am still only about half way through this lead pile. Then there is the lead pile at mother’s!

Oh well, upward and onward, the audit will continue on Saturday and I am sure I will be self indulgent enough to write it all up Saturday night or Sunday! One thing is sure. I will cease buying figures this year until I clear some of the backlog, unless it is to round out collections!
