This time a year ago I started this blog as a prompt to get me painting and not sitting and staring at the piles of unpainted miniatures in my collection. You know, apart from a few months in winter when I just couldn’t be fagged, I have done pretty well. My painting totals are as follows:
10 x Wild West skirmish figures (West Wind and Blue Moon)
1 x French Old Guard Chasseur Battalion (Front Rank)
1 x French Old Guard Grenadier Battalion (Victrix Plastic)
1 x Bavarian Infantry Battalion (Connoisseur and Front Rank)
5 x Battalions of British Line and Light Infantry
- 1 Plastic Perry 37th Foot
- 2 Victrix (43rd Monmouthshire and 69th Foot)
- 1 Front Rank (52nd)
- Old Glory (4th Foot)
1 x Battalion of 95th Rifles (Offensive Miniatures)
I also re-based nine French Cavalry regiments and twenty battalions of French Infantry.
Not a bad tally really. Twenty three “units” and some extras. Given the glacial nature of my painting output in the last twenty years this has been meteoric. I intend to keep the momentum up this year. More Spanish and British and perhaps a few units of French or French allies. What I would like to do is actually get a decent digital camera.
Here is to another fruitful wargaming year in 2014 for all of us.
