The Month Gone: Dec 2016

Marine-PaintingDecember 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.

The Month Gone: Nov 2016

Marine-PaintingMy 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…

The Month Gone: Sep 2016

Marine-PaintingSeptember 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.

The Month Gone: Jul 2016

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.

The Month Gone: May 2016

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.

The Month Gone: Apr 2016

salute2016logoApril 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.
