What’s on your Plan? Do you have one? I needed one a long time or than I wouldn’t have needed to give away/sell/throwaway all those 1,000 plus figures this summer.06/09/2016 at 07:46 #48115ThuseldParticipant
I don’t have a wishlist as long as yours, nor have I planned it so well. But here is what is going on.
1. We have been looking at our finances and there are many purchases labelled “paypal” that are mine. My intention is to take a couple of months off from buying miniatures to keep my wife happy. I have enough to keep me going…
2. My brother is visiting from the USA in December, so it looks like a good opportunity to avoid customs and lower my shipping costs. The GBP also seems to be bouncing back a little, which is good.
3. I have been looking recently at 6mm WW2 and also space fleet combat rules and miniatures.
So my plan is to lay low for September through November. Beginning of December I intend to make a smallish order from the CinC Solar Empire Marines range. OR I might get some GHQ WW2 miniatures, some Germans, Americans and a few tanks each.
I will receive Christmas money and I think that will go on purchasing a couple of fleets of space craft.
I also want to make an order from Vanguard Miniatures because their miniatures are beautiful over there.
In a perfect world, I would be able to mix and match the miniatures I buy, so I can get a handful from various different factions. This will be most useful for Starport Scum, which is my campaign system.06/09/2016 at 10:31 #48133RhodericParticipant
Some of these purchases I’ll have to pass up on as I really can’t afford the whole list:
Buy: More terrain materials (I’ve started hoarding these), mainly more of those plastic architectural model-makers’ plants coming out of China. New varieties of plants seem to have hit the market since I last stocked up.
Buy: Shipping containers and other stuff from LaserCutCard.
Buy: Pipes, pumping stations, etc from Ainsty and Mantic.
Buy: 3mm horse and musket era historicals, either Magister Militum tricorne era figures (in which case I’d decide whether to commit to the WSS, GNW, WAS or SYW once I buy them) or Oddzial Osmy Napoleonics. Been wanting to take this plunge for a long time.
Buy: Various figures for a smallish 6mm sword-and-planet setting, mainly from the Dark Realm, Exodus Wars, Microworld sci-fi, Onslaught and Angel Barracks (wildlife) ranges.
Buy: More 6mm sci-fi stuff for proper sci-fi this time. Maybe start with Angel Barracks. I even have a little bit of a hankering to do the whole Kometenmelodie thing as per AB’s background story.
Buy: More 15mm sci-fi, if I can only decide which of 10+ manufacturers I want to order from first.
Buy: Beyond the Gates of Antares Isorians and Freeborn. At least a few to begin with, including the Isorian Phase Sniper, Tsan Ra Phase Squad and Drone Command Unit, and a Freeborn Domari Squad. (Ah, hell, that’s too much already – £70 worth.)
Buy: A few TAG modern Afghans, for an extremely over-ambitious conversion project (which is bound to fail) to turn them into a sci-fi (non-Afghan) “ethnic mafia” for my gang wars project.
Wait to receive: Halflings, Ogres, Mongol-style Goblins etc from the Westfalia Halfmen Army Kickstarter.
Do: Convert (when needed) and paint some figures for my sci-fi gang wars project that’s inspired by Judge Dredd and Necromunda. I have some 10(!) gangs/factions planned and would like to finish at least one test figure for each so as to make the project “real”.
Do: Start painting some of the Ion Age figures I just recently ordered.
Do: Finish the scratchbuilt desert outcrops and cliffs that I’ve been working on for what seems like forever, they’re taking about 10 times as long as I thought they would.
Do: Make one new set of terrain boards (from a list I’ve written up of different environments/milieus I’d like to model sooner or later) with a few bits of accompanying terrain. I’m leaning toward a grassy/shrubby red-brown-purplish board with specks of other colours to mainly represent tundra (an environment that I don’t recall having ever yet seen represented in miniature wargames) but also heathlands, alien biomes (Kometenmelodie? A sword-and-planet Mars-like environment?) and fantasy swamps. But I’ll need to experiment a bit with textures and colours first.06/09/2016 at 11:23 #48136Angel BarracksModerator06/09/2016 at 12:11 #48140RhodericParticipant06/09/2016 at 15:08 #48163Mike HeaddenParticipant
Wants: 6mm Middle Eastern Early Bronze Age figures (Amorite, Gutian/ Lullubi, Elamite, Old Kingdom Egyptian, Mellukkan and Eblaites for starters)
Equally likely to appear: Hen’s teeth 🙂
To Do List: Make any sort of dent in the lead mountain!
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is entirely optional!06/09/2016 at 18:59 #48179PatGParticipant
I need a non-Tiger in 20mm and that’s about it.
I am pondering picking up some Riel Rebellion figures in 25mm.
To Do: make terrain and game more.06/09/2016 at 19:20 #48182Victoria DicksonParticipant
Wish List: 15mm Aztecs and Incas, a few more Conquistadors
To Do List: Finish at least one period for my Cuties, learn how to stick to one thing instead of jumping from project to project06/09/2016 at 20:19 #48205zippyfusenetParticipant
The only thing I really need is to restock the little rare earth magnets that I use to mount my 1/300 airplanes. I just ordered 14 packs of steel figure bases from Wargame Accessories. Since retiring last year I’ve made so much progress on my backlog that I’ve run low on some staples. I buy Dullcote and strip magnets every time Michael’s emails me another coupon, so I haven’t run out of those, and a computer tech pal just laid on me another dozen of the sturdy corrugated component boxes that I magnetize for figure storage. I installed another set of shelves in the garage. Life is sweet, and I have years more work ahead of me, if I never buy another figure.
However, I expect to attend the Advance The Colors and Fall In conventions over the next couple of months, and will browse those flea markets, whether I need to or not. I came home from Nashcon this spring with a carload, including about 6 feet of 15mm cast resin river pieces that I’m just finishing, 28mm ACW and a British Napoleonic landing barge with crew that I’m still working out how to fit all the pieces together.
Glenn, why are you so set on doing your Old West modeling in 15mm scale? Most everything you pine for is available in 25/28mm. Hey, y’know, I have a box full of old Reviresco Zorro figures…they’re some of the tiniest ’25mm’ figures I’ve ever seen, I’ll bet they’d mix with Blue Moon 18mm. Waddaya think? Ya want a 1/72 cardboard Dover cut-n-paste Pueblo model? Should fit okay with 15mm figures. I’ve given up on 1/72 Americana and I’ll mail the book to you just to get rid of it. Talk to me.
Victoria, it’s too bad you’re in the UK and I’m in the US. I have an entire 15mm WRG Inca army to dispose of, a couple hundred figures, 2nd gen Minifigs, all painted to a high standard. Got a general on a litter, a mummy on a litter, packs of dogs…all the trimmings. That army came to me in one of my trades, and I’m selling it on because I do my Conquistadoring in 28mm. Not practical to mail it trans-Atlantic, though, it weighs a ton.
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!06/09/2016 at 22:41 #48215AnonymousInactive
The “Olde West ” I do covers about 1680 – 1770.
Edit: in extreme cases I push it to 1840.06/09/2016 at 22:42 #48216AnonymousInactive
I use rhe Reviresco Zorro as a teenaged wannabe.06/09/2016 at 22:49 #48218AnonymousInactive
other than above, no 25/28mm figures ever again.
And if I was not 90%+ done with my current armies I would give them away.
I want to reduce space for a post-retirement apartment.07/09/2016 at 00:59 #48228zippyfusenetParticipant
A teenage Zorro wannabe. Yep, Zorro definitely needs a kid sidekick. Call him Cachorro or sumpin. Riding on a pony:
I’m ridin’ a small tiny hoss
(His name is MIGHTY LITTLE)
He’s a good hoss
He’s a bit dinky to strap a big saddle or
Blanket on anyway
