Mikeland might have said "have the attention span of a very small goldfish!" but I have that of a gnat!!!!
I can be in the middle of someth
1. Have a plan, stick to it. I consider in on sense non of my armies are ever finished, I will probably always add to them but I do have staging posts of finishedness in mind. For Example my ECWs are both nearly at that point. I set out to have 2 armies, each with 2 large foot regiments, 1 large horse and 1 small horse regiment, a couple of cannon each, skirmishers and dragoons in small numbers. Then I decided to do a band of Mercenaries and a band of club men as complementary floating units. After about 2 years I am now virtually at that point. With just dragoons and some ordinance to go. I will however probably be adding more foote and horse over time, but I have two armies I can be pleased with. The same goes for all my projects, at the start I decide roughly what I am aiming for and try onto to get distracted until I reach the staging post.
2. Have a fixed limit of 'projects' (my projects are by era not army). I have mine at 4. Romans & Celts, ECW, WW1 and WotR. The ECW & Romans are bigger projects aiming to have full armies, the WW1 and WotR are smaller. I have done a viking project (Just a small one, 60 minis, 1 ship). When that was finished I started the Romans one, and a Napoleonic one I abandoned and then started WW1.
3. Paint for yourself, not for others. Do what you want, and enjoy. If you start painting armies because other folk have an interest int era, not yourself, then you will soon get fed up. Most wargamers have a 'oooh shiny, newness' gene, that will be invoked when they see you beautifully painted army, they might want to follow you, not visa versa, if not, at least you have something complete, that you are pleased with.
