Targets for 2011

General items
  • Continue reducing the stash of unpainted figures, the target is 5,000 by year end. So I have to trade/sell/paint at least 1,500 figures and more to cover what I buy in 2011. Given I typically paint around 1,500 items a year it should be feasible.
  • Tidy up a number of armies and dispose of any old surplus painted figures, especially WW2, which has quite a number of figures I never use..
  • Upgrade more terrain, especially walls and hedges.

Major Projects (I’ve got most of the figures already)

  1. WW2 US Airborne Brigade
  2. WW2 British Airborne Brigade
  3. Medieval German/Swiss Army
  4. Frundsberg and Pommaine “SYW” forces in preparation for a new campaign.

Minor Projects

  • Terrain for the Siege of Peking game for Gauntlet
  • Italian forces for the “Big Game”, mainly a number of small units for Leros plus some Allied aircraft
  • Continue work on my new Afrika Korps, my plan is to mainly complete it by buying discount figures and vehicles.
  • Tidy up my figure database, I’ve not done a complete check for years now so I suspect it has some errors in it.

5000 in one year, that´s about 13-14 a day (5 days gone already) Sounds a big project and I wish you luck with it.

Hi Will - do you mean you are bringing your total collection up to 5,000 or do you really intend to paint 5,000 figures in one year?

Chaps, the text has been corrected, it's reducing the stash down from 6,500 to 5,000 by painting/trading/swapping
