|The first painted unit of 2012|
2012 was a very busy but successful year on the painting table for me, I managed to knock the guts out of my Nine Years War project and only have a few bits and bobs left to paint. Truthfully I don't really need anymore, but I must have got a little excited with my last Essex order so I may as well paint them up. I can't believe I'm actually going to finish a project. I've never managed that before.
In May I finished the last of Posties massive Russo-Japanese project and they've not seen the light of day yet!
Fast forward to November myself and Postie started up Battleaxe painting service, we've so far had 2 smallish commissions and are still waiting for a big one!
Anyway I'm quite pleased with the final numbers that were painted which are
15mm - 2351 15mm - 1546
20mm - 40 20mm - 119
25mm - 41 25mm - 24
So as you can see I've far out-down last years totals
I'm not sure what 2013 holds for me, as myself and Fran will be losing our jobs pretty soon, so the painting will be hit hard, as we both re-join the real world!! boo bloody hoo!
