What does it mean? Project done. Really, that’s very cool. I live for projects and when I finish one it’s very exciting because I can move on to something else. The real challenge is to stay focused on something long enough to finish it. Since May, all I’ve painted is 28mm War of 1812. I’ve completed three American units and four British units, totaling about 225 figures. It’s time to move on. I hoped to have these done by the end of October, and look it’s Halloween.
I’m probably not going to be quite so disciplined moving forward. I have some Hundred Years War figures I’m working on, as well as some 28mm Spanish for my War with Spain project. I have a dozen French knights primed and about half finished. They’ll contribute to the vanguard division at Poitiers. I also have the remaining 25 or so figures remaining to paint for the Louisiana Regiment for the Spaniards, and I hope to be done with them in November.
My goal is to continue working on both these projects until Christmas break. Sounds like a long time but November 1st is Friday. Not such a long time. Then I’ll have to go back to Bladensburg as I ready some terrain pieces and begin play testing.
November is going to be an important gaming month for me. This weekend, November 2nd is our annual visit to the Museum of Flight. We won’t be under the SR-71 this year due to a scheduling glitch. We’re going to be in the Space Center, near the Space Shuttle simulator. Should be fun. I’ll be running air racing in the morning and then bombing the Tirpitz in the afternoon with Dave Schueler.
Two weeks later we’re at the Flying Heritage Center in Everett. We reached an agreement with that air museum to host at least one event in their unique space. I’ll post pictures from both events as we work through them.
