2009 Review

Seems rather too late to be posting this, but i wasn't sure if I would complete some more figures or not. It's not and I'll post the new arrivals for 2010 in the next couple of days.

2009 Review

Well, another reasonably successful year on the painting front, over 1500 items painted a higher level than 2008 and the same level as 2007 and with the extra effort of upgraded basing for everything this year

The breakdown by type is:
  • Infantry 1,149 (701)
  • Gunners 67 (119)
  • Cavalry 246 (449)
  • Guns, etc 59 (91)
  • Terrain 42 (12)
By period:
  • WW2 357 (230)
  • WSS 305 (87)
  • Revolution 251 (114)
  • Medieval 207 (330)
  • Renaissance 193 (125)
  • Colonial 91 (0)
  • Ancient 83 (267)
  • Napoleonic 50 (48)
  • Other 29 (123)

Looking through the list it shows the emphasis on the Crete big game and Gauntlet in the first half of the year (all WW2). Then there was the "final" completion of my Medievals (before I bought more), my French Revolutionary armies and nearly my forces for the WSS/Relief of Vienna. At the end of 2009 the stash is down to 5900 20mm plastic figures, a reduction of nearly 1,000 figures from the end of 2008.

High points of the year were unsurprisingly the Crete and Salerno games, then the trip to Salute to meet up with a lot of old friends and those I have met over the web.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog this year and I look forward to hearing from you all in 2010.
