Firstly a belated Happy New Year to you all. Can't believe It's been 2 months since I've posted. I put that down to preparing for both Christmas and the unexpected loss of a close friend. I've still been reading folks' blogs.
So what did I paint last year. Quite pleased with the numbers despite a slow start.
2018 PAINTING TOTALS
1/200 Aircraft - 19
15mm Artillery - 9
15mm Foot figures - 376
15mm Mounted figures - 270
15mm Vehicles - 13
28mm Artillery - 1
28mm Foot figures - 92
28mm Monster - 4
28mm Mounted figures - 7
Total - 791
The numbers are down on last year but now a lot of my spare time is spent walking the family dog. Again my main focus was 15mm scale. I added more troops to the Great Northern War project, Swedes and Russians. I also made significant progress on a Ottoman Turk army.
In 28mm scale I added a few more figures to my Austrians for Sharp Practice. The rest were mainly sci-fi and fantasy. Expanding my Space Orks for Rogue Trader and Goblins and Elves for Dragon Rampant.
I did pick up a couple of new games this year, What a Tanker and Blood Red Skies. Both enjoyable and perfect for a club night.
I only managed 1 large Historical re-fight. Fighting both the first and second days of Gettysburg up at Micks using his own homespun rules.
I was also lucky enough to take a trip to Europe where I got to visit a number of Battlefields for both the War of Spanish Succession and Franco- Prussian War. My favourite being Blenhiem. I know this trip has inspire me to re-fight the big 4 WSS battles asap.
So plans for 2019. I want to finish my Ottoman Turk army and expand both the Danish and Russian GNW armies. This will help to reduce the lead pile.
Both Dragon Rampant and Rogue Stars are popular at the club and will see me add a couple more team and start a Angmar themed army. After that I'll see what inspires me.
