2018 in Review

2018 was another highly productive year at the painting desk, although not quite to 2017’s level.  This year saw me complete 2,908 figures, for an average of about eight figures per day.  The addition of a big 6mm project padded those numbers considerably, so my Analogue Painting Challenge points are not as high as last year.

54mm: 2 foot figures for 20 points
28mm: 236 foot, 4 mounted, 32 horses, and 8 vehicles for 1,540 points
20mm: 12 foot for 48 points
15mm: 325 foot, 380 mounted, 12 limbers, 90 guns, 28 horses, and 10 tanks for 2,762 points
6mm: 1080 foot, 69 mounted, and 16 guns for 625 points
3mm: 172 foot, 32 mounted, and 15 tanks for 74 points
1/1200: 1 ship for 3 points

This gives me 5,072 points for the year, about a 30% drop from last year.  I’m fine with that, though, as I could not have kept up last year’s pace.  2018 was still an above-average year for me.

My gaming group has continued to play a little more than once a month.  This year we worked more board games into the rotation and played some shorter miniatures games.  I have many happy memories of great games.  I think we played a better variety of games this year than in any previous year.

In 2019 I would like to finish up a couple of projects.  My ACW Union infantry in greatcoats need some additions, and they need some winter rebs to fight!  I will continue to add to my 6mm ACW armies until I can fight some of the bigger battles.  I would like to add an ancient Persian army to my Greek and Macedonian forces.

One thing I have learned, though, is that I seldom stick to these plans!  I think it’s safe to predict that 2019 will see many fun projects, interesting books, and good games.  Happy New Year!


  1. As always I'm in awe of your painting totals even a 30% drop! Happy New Year!


  2. I'm with Christopher. Amazing totals as expected from your fast and talented brush. Great job and Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, AJ! I did enjoy painting for myself in the second half of the year.

  5. That is still a very good result, Scott! I'm far below half of that...

  6. I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through my life weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how I could be transformed into a powerful person when I came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
