2015 A Summary

Its been a fab year with a few little hiccups along the way but mostly great. 
It saw a cull midway through the year of some projects that have stalled and been dead ended for to long. This has allowed me to focus on my main projects Post Apocalypse and 7TV. As well as progress on some smaller projects such as Batman and Relics (well 1 out of 3 armies painted for Relics)

So a recap of the year

Alfie of Course!

Despite a few quiet months I have surprised myself with quite a productive year.

87 Miniatures painted and 14 Terrain pieces

Quite a decent mixture as well.

Post apocalypse 26 miniatures
Relics 26 miniatures
7TV 12 miniatures
Batman/Pulp City 11 miniatures
Fantasy 12 miniatures
Terrain 14 pieces

Plans for this year are pretty much more of the same. Though I hope to get some Relics games in and paint a second army for it to play with Pulp Citizen. I am going to try and be good now until March and just paint what I have until then.

  5. Marvellous output for the year, Simon. Both in quantity and quality. Certainly your postings have been inspirational me, if not a little expensive form time to time (when you've encouraged me to pick up a parcel of minis myself!!). Looking forward to this year's miniatures enormously :-)

  9. A great recap of a productive year, Simon. Golgo Satana jumped out at me while scrolling through the pics. Beyond that there's just too much cool stuff to list.

    Well done & keep it rolling in 2016.

  18. It's interesting to see all of last year's output in one place, isn't it? I don't think I'd dare do it myself because I'd then realise all the things I had been putting off and had failed to achieve for yet another 12 months!
