OK, it is time to stop and take stock of what is going on at the hobby table. I have to do this on occasion as I suffer greatly from 'oh-shiny'-itis and as my lovely wife says, I do need to keep to three projects in order to get anything done!

Top of the list, of course, is Tékumel. My Hlutrgú warband is nearing completion (pics soon!). Sérqu is next and the Qól after that. The big problem at this moment is getting organized and ordering all of the new stuff Howard has lined up for the Tékumel Club! I also have some recent additions (thanks Jeff!) to get into the painting queue as well. And, with almost enough minis finished for games, the need of proper terrain is rising.

Next - I want to set up several groups of minis for fantasy skirmish gaming a la Song of Blades & Heroes. SBH is a generic set, so almost anything goes. I see this project as a salve for my oh-shiny-itis, as I can purchase and paint small quantities of diverse minis and they will go together on the table. I envision mixing Landsknechts, Romans, Vikings, and Sumerians with dwarves, elves, Reptus, orcs, and maybe even *shudder* Tékumel...

Way in the distance, I am preparing for one more try at a historical project. 5th century BCE is leading the pack - Greeks and Persians. Mini selection is not a stumbling point here - lots of great minis out there - but the choice of appropriate rules is key for me and that might take a while. This is a project for the future, maybe even next year.
