My sorry painting summer has continued for the last two months, which has seen me fall even further behind on my plastic and lead mountain for the year.
I did actually manage to get some paint on to actual figures during September, as I painted the Journeys in Middle Earth expansion pack minis. It’s not much, but it’s at least a start.
I did actually paint some scenery too, but I’m not sure that it counts in this context.
YTD Painted: 186
Lots of miniatures purchased in the last couple of months. First off, there was the (unplanned) purchase of Imperial Assault and subsequently the Return to Hoth expansion – along with several other miniatures (67 figures in total). In my defence, at least half the figures in the Imperial Assault game are already painted, but it’s still a lot of minis to add to the mountain.
As for the rest of the miniatures – something of mixed bag including new additions for Rangers of Shadow Deep, a fantasy Dwarf, two new boardgames (though all but 3 of the AVP miniatures are already painted) plus the start of my, admittedly unplanned, Napoleonic Sharp Practice forces in 28mm.
Monthly Aggregate: -184
YTD Aggregate: -916
With the nights drawing in as we head into Autumn, I’m hoping that the lack of daylight will drive me back to the painting table.
