Review of 2014 - Part 2

I managed to paint 1,534 items in 2014, which is quite reasonable give the time that I had to spend away from home, looking at the breakdown. Shame I couldn't achieve the same numbers as 2013 when I painted 1,794 items.

By Period
WW2
974
War of Spanish Succession
128
Napoleonic
107
SYW
105
Colonial
89
Revolution
88
Ancients
25
Medievals
15
Terrain
11
Grand Total
1,542

It’s obvious that WW2 dominated my painting and of that my new US forces were just over half the total. Another third was finishing off my British forces for NW Europe in the beginning of the year.

The Napoleonics and War of Spanish Succession were part of the push at the end of the year

By type
Infantry
750
Vehicle crews/riders
234
Rebasing
187
Gunners
84
AFVs
73
Misc Figures, Civilians, etc.
66
Soft Skin Vehicles
40
Commanders
33
Equipment
29
Artillery pieces
26
Cavalry
13
Engineers
6
Horses
1
Grand Total
1,542

The big surprise to me was how few cavalry I painted and the large number of vehicle crews.
AFVs and Softskin vehicle number were also up, reflecting my decision to fully upgrade my US forces and the attempt to reduce the size of the stash.

The scary bit was when I looked at my purchasing, 183 boxes (kits, figure sets, etc) compared to 132 in 2013. So I’m not surprised that the stash only reduced by a single storage box compared to my plan of emptying two boxes.

Too finish with some more statistics, my current tally of 20mm painted figures now stands at 26,650, but the stash comprises 7,463 items.

By any standards that is an impressive total that puts my own output of 54 figures into perspective - I look forward to seeing what you achieve this year!
