Your Current Projects...
« on: October 06, 2022, 04:19:03 PM »
We are wargamers, so we are always working on various projects all the time.  Most of them are not ready for prime time, so we toil away in obscurity until it is ready to present to the world. 

No longer!  This thread is your chance to talk about projects you are working on even if they are not ready to present to the Lead Adventure world yet.  This could be:

1. Painting projects
2. Battles you are organizing
3. Research you are doing
4. Rules you are tinkering with or writing
5. Sculpting or conversion work

Whatever project you are working on, but not ready to show to the world; is a good candidate for this thread.

What are you working on?

Model desk: Almost exclusively prepping stuff, before my first Canadian winter reduces my ability to prime stuff at will! Two focuses:
-some Fantasy Landsknechts (LAF, GW, Foundry, White Knight) ready for some vaguely Warhammer Old World esque skirmish games inspired by the German Peasants War
- AWI Loyalists, civilians and sailors in the hope of doing some stuff inspired by the privateering actions in and around New Brunswick/Nova Scotia/PEI

Reading/Researching: Stuff related to the AWI in Atlantic Canada; tracking down uniforms/etc...

I'm working on what I have dubbed The Infernal Crusade, a new project concerned only with skirmishing in dungeons with larger (35-40mm scale) miniatures.

I haven't made a thread about it yet on LAF (I'm waiting until I've made some more progress first), but I have created a blog (in my signature) where I'm chronicling the project as it develops, both in terms of miniatures, my thoughts on it, and -- coming in the future -- reports of actual games.

Mine have been the same for a while...

Old West: I'm about to throw out my old town and build a new one, might replace a bunch of my minis as well...so it's going to get a refresh.

Dungeon Crawl: I've put this down for a year or so after getting severe burnout.  It'll be finished and published...eventually.

15mm WW2 Battlegroup: Project is more or less "complete", so it's just adding stuff as I feel like it.  I've just primed a bunch of Soviet village buildings this morning.

Fantasy Skirmish: Likewise, mostly done, though I'm going to be building a scratch built town at some point, and will publish this sometime in 2023.

Sci-Fi/Gang Skirmish: Mostly done, though waiting for more terrain to arrive from the UK (last package got lost by FedEx).  This "should" be published before Christmas.

Imagi-Nations Ancients: Just plugging away at an army - awaiting tokens and mat.  Likely not commercial, but a lot of rules writing as well.

I have just purchased figures to do the Falkland islands War naval. 1:3000 ships and 1:1250 planes.
I am kicking around the idea of doing the Italio-Greek war of 1940-41 in 28mm.
Also working on finishing my 28mm Fantasy gangster line from Steve Barber.

Splitting my painting time between Necrons and Ultramarines as I get each new issue of Imperium Magazine. When I get sick of them, I continue to paint up some Crumptown Cats (which are just beautiful figures). Long term, I need to finish British Airborne for CoC.
Enjoying the game is ALWAYS more important than winning the game.

Boxed up all my 28mm and started buying 20mm plastics for some reason. Looking at doing some imagi- nation WW1 in a Mesopotamia setting.

Since March 2020, I have been doing a huge Vietnam project, which started with a few Gringo 40s and Empress figures.
It evolved via XPS terrain building and 3d printing into a series of tutorials in Military Miniature magazine and then became a book.


The book is now at the layout stage and will be available as an eBook and PDF by the end of October.
There will be a softback book as well.
I have sent in one round of edits on the whole book and second round on the first two chapters.
Depending on the layout team, my part will be finished in a few days.

I haven't decided what comes next, but it may be to revisit the 1879 Anglo Zulu War.

Every holiday inspires me to a new project. I'm currently travelling round "Central Europe" and onto North Italy. So far I've considered the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, late Medieval Hungarian and Ottoman, Seven Years War Austrians ( I already have Prussian) and just know Verona and Genoa will inspire me to dust off and expand my Late Medieval/Renaissance forces. I hope I can resist the wars of Italian Unification! Lucky I'm missing Partizan and SELWG so hopefully sanity will prevail! My current projects back in Blighty are 28mm  Spartan and Indian Mutiny.
