55 models this month! Trippling the total so far.
I’ve been in deep with the painting this month working on a lot of commissions but also finding the time for a few of my own wee projects along the way. It’s also a month were I have tackled a variety of ranges, Harry Potter from Knight Models, Guild Ball from Steamforged, a Beholder from Wizkids and Necromunda as well as Lord of the Rings from Games Workshop.
This gives me a stiff target for next month, but I do have a job coming up that will help tremendously.

This month’s issue of Tabletop Gaming is in stores now and within you can find my article on how to paint some of the forces of good, Harry, Ron & Hermoine alongside the Order of the Pheonix…

On through another month and this time my painting total is looking a little healthier, but has a major difference between any of the months previous. It’s mostly terrain. My main work was the Mantic terrain crate and this one is difficult to stack onto my model count, so I’ll be starting a new scenery count as well.

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…
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
With my recent foray back into the Batman Miniature Game it was time to get cracking on with the game board once again. Whilst I’ve not done much to it since the last time we had a look, my brother has been doing a little work.
After getting a whole load of industrial type terrain, he’s been hard at work getting it built, a little bit painted and adding LEDs! We now have a light up gaming board! Just check out how it looks ready for a game…
With the addition of the light up buildings and the Suicide Squad Box Game buildings we really have the board coming together. Now all we need to do is get to painting the whole lot properly…
With me getting back into playing the Batman Miniature Game a bit more often I realised I needed to pick up a few more tokens to help keep track of everything, so off to the wonderful Counter Attack Bases I headed.
Their Superhero Skirmish Range is where I picked up all the rest of my tokens for the game when I was first starting out and they’ve added to the range since I was last there, meaning they have nearly everything for every situation you could think of.
The first thing I needed was something for the action counters for the character cards. Since I’m using a Batman/Law forces force as well as a Harley gang I wanted some action counters for each of these forces. Their shield counters work perfectly for the Batman side of things, shown here in blue, and the Harlequin design is perfect for the Harley gang, shown here in red. These are both around about the same size, both perfect for fitting into the attribute slots on the character cards and are not too badly priced for what you get, £5.00 for 25 counters.
Next up I wanted to get some tokens for both ammo an any titan that might be picked up during the game and they had an Ammo/Titan Set just waiting for me. At only 35p each it meant I could pick up enough to cover all the ammo that the guys have from the start and any extra I may have purchased for them. Much like the action counters before, these are the perfect size to keep on or near the character card whilst not taking up too much room.
The final thing I wanted to pick up was some Activation Markers as I’m terrible at remembering who’s already gone. I really love the Arkham themed design of these and they’re a really great way to keep on top of your tracking.
I also got a bonus in the box in the form of some extra ammo tokens which turned out to be incredibly useful. I hadn’t thought about the models that have two ranged weapons and the need to maybe track more than one type of ammo.
As usual I’m really happy with the quality of the tokens I got from them and will no doubt be back again soon to buy some more 🙂
