This is the second time I have tried to start this list. Spent 30 minutes trying to do it the first time. Lots of interruptions. Two kids under two take up a lot of time!! Wife wanting to discuss lunch, the kids, family drama, pointless TV shows (Bravo channel)...

Aarrgghhh!!!!!

Have several game related projects I want to work on and eventually complete. Made some strides. Stalled. Picked up new games... Squirrel! Just sooo many games I want to play.


So, I am creating a list of all my stalled projects, play troughs, etc. feel free to pile on your own.

*EDIT 10/25/2014*
Since starting this list, I've actually added to it with some projects. ACK! Increasing my workload so to speak. Neverthelss, I have been updating what work I have accomplished. Some cases have pictures to go with the update.

Print and play.

I have all the chits, map tiles, etc. printed out on gloss label paper. Just have to slap it in already purchased chit board, cut, and play.

But, no time.

Side project: paper comparison on laser printers. I have 3 different paper types to report on, but haven't. Aarrgghh!

No time!

Then, along came a blast from the past. As in, I haven't purchased anything from GW since 1991 or 22 years, 10 months and 3 days. But This, I had to have. Miniatures!

5 Marines left on sprues...

Now, I have to paint them. Aarrggghhhh!!!!!

No time!!


*Edit 9/30/2014*

12 marines ready for base coat good washing and glue to keep them together.
Genesteelers - all on the sprues.
Door bases - all on the sprues.
Dead marine in the throne - on the sprue.

Ooohhhh! Someone posted some print and play cubes and standees. So, these are downloaded. Will be printed tomorrow.

But when will I paste on chipboard and cut???

Aarrgghhhh!!!!!

*Edit 9/29/2014*
Printed out front and back to standees. Human team. Printed on glossy water proof label paper. Applied to linen paper, both sides. Just need to cut out. And get stands...

*Edit 9/30/2014*
Standees for one team cut out. Not quite lined up front and back on the label paper-Linen paper-Label paper sandwich.



Purchased some yellow and blue wooden disks for base plates.

At least I have one project moving along.

*Edit 10/2/2014*

Didn't like the thin label-linen paper-label sandwich. Cut up a cereal box to use as the center for some standees. So it will be: label paper-cereal box-label paper for this next set of standees. Time to reprint the "human" front and back pages.

Aaarrgghhh!!!! No time!!!!

*Edit 9/29/14*

Just downloaded this and Barbarossa Solitaire.

Planning a Monday the 20th printing. We shall see.

*Edit 10/20/2014*
Rules printed
Chits and map printed on full page glossy label paper.
Need to apply to chip board and cut.


*Edit 10/21/2014*
Counter clipped and sorted! YAY!!!!
Need to mount the map, read the rules, and PLAY!!!

*Edit 10/22/2014*
Went ahead and just played the game with what I had. Had to put weights on the map edges to hold the label paper down and prevent it from rolling up my game. HA! Session report filed here.

Wow... this is an amazing simulation.
