2013 Part 2

The first miniatures of the second half of 2013 are beginning to stack up. Here are some Hasslefree minis flanking some very old Grenadier evil dwarves.

Following swiftly on we have a couple of Citadel Black Orcs and Savage orcs. I've painted these up to fill the gaps left by the standard bearer and musician.

Painting these with "modern" techniques (i.e. washes) meant that these were quicker to paint up than the original unit members and the results look better too - that's progress for you.

Half term report

Well the score at half time is 181 miniatures worth painted (165 actual) vs an unknown total of purchases.

This means that even if this year is likely to be a fail, I am still on track to have the most productive year since records began which is something to take comfort in.

Lets see how I've been getting along with my objectives.

1) Play more games
I made a good start with this one but it has tailed off a bit recently. Must try harder.

2) Don’t make any impulse purchases
Er, best skip this one I think.

3) Paint at least 4 DreadBall teams
I've done well with this one - I've painted up 6 teams so far.

4) Paint my Dwarf Army
Well I have 5 of them on my workbench right now. I think I will have to make a bit more of an effort with this one.

So lets see what the second half of the year brings.
