A Year in Pictures 2018

Well it’s been a long year and I have been spotty at best with keeping up with this, hence the delay in getting it out there.

I set out to keep track of how many models I paint in a year, not with a specific goal in mind or as a figure to beat, but to just have a look at the numbers. So without further ado my painted figure count for 2018 was…

175

Not a bad number to be honest, but this year I think I’ll break it down even more. I want to look at how many figures I paint for each game that comes my way, board game, tabletop, or anything else that may happen. This is one ofthe things I’ll be adding to my painting goals for the year, which I’ll talk about soon.

Anyway, enough rambling, here’s the 175 models I painted this year…

A Month in Pictures – February 2018

The second month roles by and it seems to be the month of franchises, with Star Wars, Dr. Who and Batman all being represented.

I’m happy with the progress I made this month. Nothing to really challenge myself, or an attempt at a new technique though, so I need to ensure I pursue this in March.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Painted in February: 22

Total painted in 2018: 39

 

A Month in Pictures – January 2018

So the new year has arrived and I wanted to add a wee progress marker to the blog each month, so I can take stock of how much mini’s I actually get through in a year. It’s also so I can track my progress, particularly in regards to the hobby goals I’m giving myself(more on that another time), and see how far I can push myself.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Painted Model Count: 17

Total to Date: 17

Imperial Assault – More Empire Reinforcements!

This week I’ve been hard at work trying t add more reinforcements to the Empire see of my Imperial Assault set, still on that quest to providing a fully painted mission to my campaign players. The first thing I’ve been working on is some Viper Probe Droids…

Great models, but horrible to clean old lines from and I think they may need repaired often as they are only loosely attached to that base. These show off what I’m doing with the rim of my bases well though. Grey for standard deployments and red for the elite deployments, and as with previous groups I’ve used ProTech Models stencils to differentiate any that are the same.

I also tackled another group of Stormtroopers…

shadow-troopers

I want all my standard groups of Stormtroopers to be standard, run of the mill white but for the elite groups I wanted to do something a bit different. For this group I chose to do them as Shadowtroopers. I was inspired by a cloaking device upgrade that I have received in the campaign, and to keep things thematic I’ve decided I’ll only use it on this group. For the next elite group I think I’ll be doing them as Shocktroopers 🙂

Imperial Assault – Scum Reinforcements!

ig-88

I’ve been painting up even more Imperial Assault miniature’s in an attempt to let my players have at least one mission in our next session were everything we use is fully painted. This time I’ve been focussing on getting some mercenaries ready in the form of infamous bounty hunter IG-88 and a couple of Trandoshan hunters…

trandoshans

Whilst not much work was required on IG, I am really pleased how he turned out, especially since I didn’t want him to just be base metal. I wanted him to be a bit more dirtied up and well worn looking. I’m very pleased with how the Trandoshans turned out, particularly the flesh. I knew straight off the bat I wanted the flesh to be different colours and the pairing to be unified by the colour of the overalls. The only thing I’m not sure I like is the fact that when looking at the overalls combined with the white collar, all I can think of is this…

Maybe the Zorn have joined Star Fleet?

Imperial Assault – Han Solo!

The infamous smuggler, scoundrel and scruffy looking nerf herder has joined the group of painted models for my Imperial Assault games. I’ve been looking forward to this one, and he certainly didn’t let me down…

I’m really loving the quality of the FFG plastic miniatures, and am finding the level of detail quite pleasing. Whilst for the most part they are just high end board game pieces comparable with the low end of your normal tabletop gaming miniatures, they do the job well for a fairly low cost. In addition they’ve also captured the essence of most of the characters quite well, which I think is something very important when it comes to something as beloved as Star Wars.
