Organizing My Hobby Time

When it comes to my miniature gaming hobby I love playing the games, but when it comes down to it I find I am a collector. What do I mean by this is basically I collect armies and never really focus on one particular thing. While this is fun and I can play a variety of armies, I find I have many half finished "projects" as I bounce from one to another. Well I decided that I was going to organize my painting a little to see if I can get a couple of my projects finished over the next few months. So I thought I might as well share my plan with the readers.

March 25th - 31st:

For the remainder of March I plan on finishing the commissioned projects that I am doing for a few friends. This mean paints a few more Cygnar Miniatures for Warmachine. Painting Some Thousand Sons, Khorne Berzerkers and a ton of Terminators for a Chaos Army and painting an Imperial Guard army for a third friend (although this one I have plenty of time to do).

The April  WAAAGH!

You have probably guessed it by the title, April will be devoted to Greenskins. I am going to start with my Orcs and Goblins fantasy army. First by updating the paint job on my older models to make them more match how I paint now. I finished one unit of boyz already and will post pictures of it tomorrow. Then I will go onto to building and painting the new models in my horde. If I can get the entire army done before the month is over then I will get a start of my Space Orks for 40K.

Month of Menoth

I have been seriously neglecting my Warmachine miniatures so May will become the Month of Menoth. I will first finish painting the models for the themed list I want to run. I will then move onto the remaining models that I own.

I have been missing the regular Thursday night games and I am really looking forward to making the next one as playing with an army always makes me want to finish painting it.

Well there you have it, my plan for the next couple of months. I am hoping to get at least two armies fully painted and possibly a third started. I just know I needed to get organized on my painting or I was never going to see another finished army. This will also give you an idea of the thing you will be seeing coming across the blog over the next several weeks as I keep up to date posts on where I am with each project.

Well as always, thanks for stopping by the blog and please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Story of my life. I too have extreme hobby ADD. I actually just recently went through the same process of trying to organize my efforts to produce finished products. Your not alone!

Same here. I have more armies than I know what to do with. I try to stay focused on one at a time, but I am too easily distracted.

@Mike - How did it work out for you?

@Slipwing - That has been my problem lately so I am hoping this plan will resolve the issue at least for two armies :)

Gamer ADD hits another hobbyist. I'm in the same boat as you. I got a Space Marine company to finish, an Empire army, have plans for a Modular Game Board, want to do a Tau army and an Imperial Guard army. So muchthng so little time. But I like you Idea about doing one a month.

What are you going to do when gamer ADD hits you during you month?

@Deadmeat - I think I will probably cry ;) Seriously though I don't know, I am just hoping I can keep it at bay. That is one of the reasons I chose a 2 month block instead of longer.
