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…
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…
This month saw a huge boost to my numbers, mainly because I got stuck into my own Middle Earth SBG force, Azog’s Legion. It’s been a while since I’ve had that level of enthusiasm for a project of my own and it’s a joy to have it back. So much so that I have managed to paint up a full 800pt force! Just a unit of Gundabad Orcs and I’ll have 1000pts. Next up will be some allies and the start of my good force.
I also painted up a few of the Nighthaunt models from Soul Wars for a guide in this months issue of Tabletop Gaming magazine. This gave me the oppertunity to try a few different schemes. Of all of them the monochrome was definately my favourite.
Models Painted: 46
Total painted in 2018: 151
September had a couple of milestones to celebrate. The first of which is over 100 miniatures painted in 2018! If I’m honest I was hoping this would have been acheived a lot earlier in the year but my focus has been on other, more important, things. I’m still very happy with it and I know if my recent painting spurt is anything to go by, that total will be shooting up! The second milestone is not really painting related, but it see’s my return to playing Middle Earth Strategy Battle game from Games Workshop. Me and Lord of the Rings have a history in the hobby, which I’ll be writing about soon. Anyway onto the models from this month…
