2021 in Review

It is that time of year again, when I total up my Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge points.  Almost all of my painting this year was in service of two commissions, Carl's 40mm ACW armies and John's 15mm Napoleonic French.  I also painted some 28mm colonials for my friend Kevin and some 1/72 plastics with my daughters.  Practically the only figures just for me were four sticks of 6mm ACW.

 40mm Foot: 145 (1,015 points)
40mm Mounted: 7 (105 points)
28mm Foot: 123 (615 points)
28mm Mounted: 2 (20 points)
28mm Guns: 2 (20 points)
1/72 Foot: 182 (728 points)
1/72 mounted: 1 (8 points)
15mm Foot: 865 (1,730 points)
15mm Mounted: 145 (580 points)
15mm Guns: 22 (88 points)
6mm Foot: 112 (56 points)

That gives me a total of 4,965 points on the year, quite a fall-off from last year's 7,953 points.  15mm Napoleonics are demanding, for sure, and that's what I spent most of my time on this year.

2021: 4,965
2020: 7,953
2019: 6,285
2018: 5,072
2017: 7,187
2016: 5,086
2015: 4,506
2014: 4,327
2013: 5,456
2012: 5,787
2011: 4,081
2010: 7,167
2009: 4,348
2008: 8,816

I have been painting 5,788 points per year, on average, so this year is not quite the steep fall-off that it seems.  Still, I would love to get those numbers up in 2022.

Painting is only half of the hobby, of course.  How about gaming sessions?  They were almost non-existent this year.  My group got together three times.  I hope this also improves in 2022, as I miss seeing my friends.


  1. Nearing 5,000 PP is quite impressive in my eyes.

    1. Thanks, Jon. I would like to paint even more, but I think my hands are slowing.

  2. We do seem to do a lot more painting than gaming dont we - although Jon has managed to have a game every ten days on average PLUS paint a reasonable number of new figures!
