Been a bit of a Whirlwind

Well, its been a bit of a whirlwind around these parts.

We are in full practice and scrimmage mode for football season for my 5th grader and 8th grader. But we had a setback with the 5th grader. He fractured his collarbone at a football tournament and is out 3-4 weeks. I don't see how he will be back in 3-4 weeks, but that's what the doctor told us. We'll see. In the mean time. I am still assistant coach on a team where my son isn't playing right now. Frustrating that. The 8th grader is fighting to make the A Team squad as Tight End. He has size and some speed. We'll see. I am hopeful.

As is usual, the beginning of the school year is absolute chaos. And many other distractions abound. Not much time left for gaming or painting. I probably won't be gaming with the BG's til November, and I don't know how much time I'll get to spend at the Recruits Gaming Convention because of football games. So each moment is precious on the gaming front right now.

I did get the following accomplished:

1 stand of Spanish Musketeers finished - for my converged grenadier unit.
5 Stands of Spanish Musketeers completed -just need to finish the command stand and the final infantry unit of the Spanish Army is completed.

Once finished with the Spanish, I am not sure where I will head next.

I could delve into 15mm Sci Fi. Hordes to be painted there.
I could start on the 15mm Undead Army for Hail Caesar Fantasy.
I could nick off a dozen Foundry Pirates.
I could do a couple dozen skirmish napoleonic figs.
Or I could start the French 28mm Nappy Cavalry. Chasseurs first, Then Dragoons.

I do not have clarity at the moment. I have a wealth of choices. But no decisions.

And it sure would be nice to finish Fistful of Lead:Warriors of the Wasteland.

Join the Fraternal Order of Fractured Collar Bones. Marsh was out for 8 weeks before he was cleared.

I guess the question would be what to work on next should be either based on:
1) What are you currently playing and finishing something would add to that gaming enjoyment?
2) what are you planning on playing next.
3) If anything else, set out one of each figure in a line. Close your eyes and paint the figure that your eye draws to when you open them. That means you want to paint that model but you are not actually thinking about it in an active sense.

thanks for the thoughts Styx. What a reasonable and rational approach.
