Well if I'm going to get this thing rolling I need to form some sort of plan and to do that I need to know where I am right now and start prioritizing (more on that in a later post).
Let's start with a list of my current projects and their status:
Two warbands, Vikings and Anglo-Danish, 4 points each to start with but eventually I want to bring them up to 6 points.
Warlord – done
Hirdmen (4) 1 pt – done
Bondi, hand weapons (8) 1 pt – done
Bondi, spears (8) 1 pt – 3/8 done
Ulfhednar (4) 1 pt – Almost done
As usual I will do all the bases at the end, so the done aren't really "done-done" yet.
To bring them up to 6 points I will add a unit of 12 archers and another unit of 4 hirdmen.
Huscarls with axes (4) 1 pt
Huscarls with spears (4) 1 pt
Ceorls (16) 2 pts
I haven't started on these yet, but since the vikings took a little longer than expected I will probably do these quickly using Army Painter's dip.
Added to these will be a unit of 12 slingers and some more huscarls to bring the warband up to 6 points.
Two Wars of the Roses armies, early Lancasters and Yorks, using 6 mm Baccus miniatures. The original plan was to cover all the options for both armies, bringing the total number of bases to 24. An easier approach would be to stick with the basic lists, and a total of 17 bases.
Here I've only managed to finish all 4 bases of dismounted men-at-arms/nobles. The 4 bases of billmen are mounted on painting sticks and undercoated.
Human team, "Altdorf Altdorfers". 14 miniatures.
Won these classic miniatures on eBay in the beginning of last year when I had a sudden urge to play Blood Bowl. Really struggled with painting these as they have a sort of weird feel to them, very "unclean" in an old school way. I'd say I'm about 70–80% done, but looking at them now I'm not very happy about the painting and just want to strip them and start over. Well, we'll see.
So there you have it, my list of unfinished projects. Of course, if I were to look closer I'd come up with a couple of more, older ones (to say nothing of all the miniatures bought and added to the dreaded lead pile ...). These are the projects started in 2011.
