Review of 2015 - part 2

Having looking at progress against plan, hers's a breakdown of the 1,701 items I painted this year. Of this 61 were 28mm figures, the other 1,640 were 20mm as usual.

Breakdown by period:

Grand Total
1,701

  • The dominant theme for the year was WW2, mainly concentrated on the Axis winter forces, but also covering a lot of rebasing/reworking of existing items and various die-casts.
  • Next biggest is terrain, showing the majot effort on the terrain for the SOGG big game this summer covering the fighting at Lentini, Sicily.
  • The thrid biggest period is surprisingly Napoleonics, where a large number of Prussian and French cavalry were reworked and rebased ready for the Ligny game. Only 33 new figures were actually painted.
  • Renaissance was only concerned with my Cossacks and Wallachians.
  • Medieval was one of my failures this year, alsmost all of these are 28mm dark agre Saxons
  • SYW only comprised the two Jacobite units, with the cavalry to follow shortly
  • I had completely forgotten that I added some Egyptian cavalry and artillery to my Colonial (Sudan) forces

No surprise that infantry is first but the quantity of terrain for Lentini also shows up here. 2016 has also been marked by the amount of reworking/rebasing/touching up carried out, in some cases it would, in retrospect, have been easier to start from scratch. Note this category also includes the tarted up die-cast tanks. The number of vehicle riders produced is down to the numbers of crewmen provided in the PSC sets, and I still have loads left over.

Overall a fairly successful year of painting and modelling

That is a prodigious amount of painting and quite some example of painting discipline. Envious, very envious.

That's truly unbelievable! How do you do it? I too am envious to the core!

I am in awe of your productivity Will. You put my paltry amount to shame.

Cheers,

Pete.
