1. Can't Buy a Figure unless I have painted a figure from my lead pile.
2. Can't spend money unless I have either created money from sale of hobby stuff or it's from my gameing stash.
Due to the low level of figures I had at the start of the process I am allowing myself one free splurge at Derby in a few weeks. This is fine as rule 2 still applies. Good job I just sold a ASL item then ;-)
Paint, bases, materials and Rules do not count to 2 as it is the figures that need watching.
I also have an idea that may well help me out with getting figures and keep me supplied with things to paint without the cost impact. More on this at a later date.
Figures owned since last purchase
6mm all Napoleonic's
14 Cav regiments 3 painted
31 Infantry 24 painted
12 scermish strips 6 painted
9 guns and limbers 3 painted
10 mounted Dragoons Painted
10 dismounted Dragoons Painted
30 figure regiment of foote
56 infantry 40 painted
Most of these have been painted in the last 4 weeks so I have mounted up plenty under rule 1 and paying for the replacements is covered as well. Good times.
I plan to buy a bunch of Baccus French Naps to round off the French army and can do this under 1 as I should have almost all the above painted by then. But I also plan on buying a fair chunk of Chariot Miniatures for a Macedonian army but not knowing what rules set I am likely to use this could limit me to buying the obvious troop types.
I also want to go into another period at some point but need to start gaming again and reach out to suitable rules.
