All-project satus update

This is the grand status of everything list for now.  I am working lately to manage costs, so projects where everything is in hand will get some measure of priority.

Status entries are:
  • Active-A: Everything in place (or as described), has my attention, and know what to do.
  • Active-B: Everything in place (or as described), I know what to do, and it is talking to me but I am not as excited as I am about Active-A projects.
  • Waiting:  Some clearly defined prerequisite not met.
  • Stalled: At the bottom of Fortuna's wheel at the moment, but this can change unpredictably.
  • / G-R: Game Ready - I could put on a game for these right now.
Topic Activity Status Plans  Cost 
Renaissance 28mm Active-A First test figure to complete in a couple of days.  Will order plastics in late august $60
Renaissance RPG Active-A Have GURPS for framework.  Must recast skills, etc to period and test.  
18th Century Armies Active-B / G-R  I have a large stock of primed miniatures ready to paint.  I do need more 30mm square bases.  On order are the two redoubts I need for one of the fixed defense scenarios.  I do need to think about rules; figure oriented hearts of tin is not working for me but as a framework most of the rules are fine $30
FPW Campaign Active-B A proof of concept campaign is an active project.  I am unsure of environment  
18th Century Naval Stalled 3 ships assembled and primed, but just not talking to me.  
ECW 28mm Stalled Should either paint for FoG:R or sell.  Or paint then sell.  
SF 15mm Stalled Nice figures, just not into the project.  I also have no "opposing" forces. $50
SF Campaign Stalled Processing of the star data not interesting me at the moment  
SF Ships Stalled May just do these as a modeling project.  Simpler without 3D considerations.  
WWII 10mm Stalled / G-R Several bits ready to go, red cavalry primed.  Will be re-basing mg, mortar, light AT to 30mm frontage - bases in hand except for 30mm square also needed for C18  
WWII Rules Stalled Have FFT3 in hand, looks good.  Just not talking to me..  
18th Century Campaign Waiting Will develop concepts with other situations.  
FPW MlT6x4 Waiting Bases for first lot should arrive next week.  Will probably go to Active-B.  Could organize unprimed figures, have many primed.  ~$200 
Renaissance 15mm Waiting Rebasing to FoG:R.  Rules and references ordered, money in PayPal for pendraken bases to order tomorrow.  Will go to Active-A when parts are in.  


  1. Quite a list you have there. I should sit down and put together one of my own. It just might help me focus on what needs to be done.

    1. What is really worrying me is that I may be forgetting stuff. I've make several additions already today.

    2. I know if I made a list I'd be forgetting stuff. I don't want to look like I have some sort of lead based attention deficit disorder.

  2. I just used your methodology and put together a list. I have 20 projects (!!) on it. But at least two are complete or almost complete.
