December did not present the spare time I was hoping it was going to. I only got to paint four Predator models and those were quite quick paint jobs to get them ready for a game of AvP.

Over the whole of 2016, I purchased 99 new figures and painted a total of 239.
My new job is playing havoc with my hobby. Three weeks in to the new venture and I have very little time after work to paint a thing. November was pretty bad, all I managed to do was paint an old dragon and a couple of small terrain bits.
I guess as my Astropolis Kickstarter arrived, they count as purchases for November.
Christmas is coming, maybe I will get a bit of downtime to paint some stuff, then again…

October was a huge improvement over September, but lets face it, it could not have been worse, I could not have painted less than zero models.
What I did manage was 5 Dust Axis Ghosts and a small band of Ashigaru for Ronin. Phew!
Monthly Result: +17
Yearly Tally: +144
September was another very poor month for painting as I was away again. I also managed to buy some more stuff for a few projects, mainly more models for the Steam Wars robot army, but also a rather nice Reaper Bones clockwork dragon that will get used in Dragon Rampant and Steam Wars.
Maybe October will be better for painting.
Painted: 0 (zero, nil, nada, zilch, nothing)

August has been a very poor month for painting as I have been away on holiday, but at least that means I could not buy anything new either. All I managed to paint was a Marcus proxy and six Sturmaffe Blutkreuz Pioniere Gorillas for my Dust Axis force. September is not going to be be much better.
Monthly Result: +7
Yearly Tally: +156
July was not too bad as far as painting goes, it is meant to be summer and I usually paint less in the summer.
I did manager to paint Blood Reavers for Dragon Rampant, two plastic towers for various fantasy games, a fist full of Undead Legionnaires and Necromutants and six Axis Gorillas to finally get my Dust Axis army started.
I bought into the Tanks game, which has three tanks in it, not that I need more Shermans, but another Panther or Jagdpanther will be useful.
Monthly Result: +24
Yearly Tally: +149
Not a bad month for output, managed a unit of Dryads and a unit of Sirens for a Treefolk warband for Dragon Rampant. I did not quite get the cavalry finished so they slip into July…
Monthly Result: +26
Yearly Tally: +125
May turned out to be quite a good month for getting stuff painted. Three Ramshackle light tanks, some more British Infantry from EMP and Meridian Miniatures and plenty of Militia also from Meridian Miniatures.
I also built a nice big TT Combat warehouse, but that did not need any painting, not yet anyway.
Monthly Result: +36
Yearly Tally: +99
April is a month when the purchases take a bit of a leap at Salute. This year I managed to keep the volume quite low but still bought models for a Dragon Rampant army and a new steampunk army.
I did manage to paint quite a few models, including a whole 6mm army for Horizon wars, Rhino and The Hammers for Dust, a couple of vehicles for Steam Wars and a few giants for Dragon Rampant.
Monthly Result: +19
Yearly Tally: +63
March was a good month, I painted all the Scrunts I bought in February and finished off the Sedition Wars character models. I also managed to get a couple of Dark Legion models finished and 10 steampunk Automotans. In April of course is Salute and I expect to buy a few new treats.
