It's no secret that since starting the new job in March my painting time and production have gone down the toilet. It's not been helped by the fact that my main projects game also was reached meaning no targets need to be reached.
However I have a few other projects that whilst not on a time limit are getting more attention than others. Of course the next three months will be all about the Analogue Painting Challenge. I have a few plans to get myself an extra hour a day IF I can get it past the boss and capable to keep it going.
Projects that will feature heavy in 2016 will obviously include my 6mm Ancients, I am coming to the end of the Macedonian army for the time being so a switch to the Persians is on the horizon, possibly as late as March.
Keeping with 6mm I hope to get on with my Italian's for my Napoleonic's and get the Poles started as well.
15mm Should see my Ancients topped up and the Persians finished. I also hope to add to the Macedonian cavalry. It's possible but unlikely I will get more ECW, mostly cavalry, that fully depends on if I actually use my 15mm ECW I have.
Beyond that it's just painting what I already have when the whim takes me. I have well over 5,000 figures in hand spanning loads of periods and scales so I have plenty to keep me motivated. So I guess it's time to see what I have painted over the past twelve months.
6mm Infantry Battalions 109! yes one hundred and nine battalions, that's over 3,000 figures and that's a slack year lol.
6mm Cavalry 37 regiments, quite a few more than I would have thought.
15mm Infantry 238, mostly painted in last years challenge.
15mm Cavalry just 78 mostly in the challenge
28mm Infantry 65, not a great year but not bad
28mm Cavalry not a single figure.
So not a terrible year at all but lower than any year since I came back to the hobby. I think this trend will probably continue and my painting will drop a little more. However if a project comes along that would all change.
2016 will be the year of variance as I tackle many a different project, so it may well be a lot more interesting for the follower as well as for me.
