|This is still a paint I have never used, oh the irony
Well, yet another year has passed, and let's see what progress I made this year when looking to my goals as set forth in 2014: http://www.dicedevils.com/2014/01/2014-whole-new-year-of-empty-promises.html Here is the meat and potatoes of the post:
What I want to do then is set myself for a small amount of painting, but every night where possible. I have my Soviet Moderns which are up first (hence the Seinfeld/Red Dawn pics) and then my DAK which I've been working on for next Historicon. Its still not 100% sure if its EW or MW. After that, I have a small unit of Free French to finish off, 3 M7 Priests and some 105s. My LW 21 Pzr has a recce unit of halftracks and some Pumas so I can field more than the 2 lists I am known for.
Lets not even get into the unpainted Brit Para army I have, or the 12 Grants and 9 Crusaders I have for my MW British!!Well I did do the painting daisy chain.. all year, and got my Soviet Moderns done for a few games, got my DAK up TWICE (I did 2 full armies' worth.. All scout cars, and your regular sitzkrieging gun list) and then went nuts and painted up a bunch of free French stuff thanks to the new Italy books.. I got 2 more units of recce jeeps painted, a unit of M57 (AKA 6lbr guns) and some 105mm arty. I traded that Brit Para army for some Itals, and sold 6 of the 12 grants to ThunderST. However all this painting took place before Cdn Nationals, which took place in late August, and since then I have been totally burnt out on painting. I tried to get some panzer IV's done for my LW 21pzrs, but it fizzled out big time.
So what can I try and predict for next year: I will paint not much WW2. With the new FAON book, and now I have the Tour of Duty book, I want to finish off my Russkies.. I have a few more infantry teams to go, 4 BRDM scout cars, another ZSU-23/4 AA and a MiG-21 and a Hind-D kicking around.
|MiG-21's.. and yes my gfx card wanted to implode!
I also have some Napoleonics I want to get done.. I might play them too often but they look sharp, and I can always bring them to Histo next year and get a game in with them. Some of us also got bitten by the RPG bug, so some fantasy-type models for the Pathfinder thing we are doing. I reckon that by April or so I will start back up with some Flames of War, maybe my Itals. Been playing a LOT of ELITE Dangerous,
|ELITE: Oxygen is overrated.. I had less than 4 minutes to get to a station.. nearest was 8 light years away, and my windscreen was compromised, so kinda like driving a convertible through Hyperspace!! (Spoiler, I made it with 45 seconds to spare)
and just started DCS World (free flight sim, see pic above) and even some SWTOR, so not a lot of time painting.. but that's fine.
How bout you guys? How was your progress this year?
