2015 was another busy year at the painting desk for me, with a total of 1,510 figures finished, or about four figures each day.
This year most of my painting was for commission work. When I moved to my dream neighborhood in 2011, I lost my dedicated wargaming room. Now I am saving my pennies to build a two story garage with the top floor as a dedicated hobby space.
My 2015 totals were:
28mm Foot: 150
28mm Mounted: 36
28mm Guns: 4
15mm Foot: 1040
15mm Mounted: 254
15mm Guns: 26
For my collections:
15mm Ancient Greeks, 280 hoplites, 112 light troops, 24 cavalry
15mm Napoleonics, 24 British cavalry, 38 French cavalry
28mm Napoleonic French, 30 cavalry
28mm ACW, 16 Union infantry
28mm World War II, 14 American infantry, 8 German infantry
15mm Napoleonic French, 648 foot, 168 cavalry, 20 guns
28mm Colonial British, 96 infantry, 16 gunners, 4 guns, 6 mounted generals
My Analogue Hobbies scoring system total for the year was 4,506 points, a slight increase from last year. My problem with that system is that it equates scale with painting difficulty, something I do not think is true at all. A 15mm AB French fusilier is two or three times more difficult to paint than a 28mm WW2 American infantryman.
I plan to spend 2016 plugging away on my giant Napoleonics commission. I had hope to finish it within a year, but with three small children placing demands on my time, that probably won't happen. Still, I am maintaining a good painting pace.
Happy gaming in 2016, everyone!
