2017's almost over - before you post any new year's resolution to paint more minis, let's show off what we got done in 2017!



It was a busy year for me - I'm generally a slow painter, so I feel I got a lot done. Including:

Tau: 1 Commander, 3 Cadre Fireblades, 3 Firesight Marksmen, 1 Ethereal, 10 Pathfinders + Drones, 6 Strike Team + Turret, 3 Stealth Suits, 12 Gun Drones, 1 Sunshark Bomber
Salamanders: 1 Chaplain, 2x5 Tactical, 2x5 Devastators (Hvy Bolter and Missile Launcher), 5 Sternguard, 1 Drop Pod, 1 Land Speeder
Death Guard: 10 Plague Marines
Knights of Gryphonne: 1 Captain in Gravis Armor, 1 Primaris Lieutenant, 2x5 Intercessors, Contemptor Dreadnought.

What did you get done? Post your list and/or pictures below!

I count for two reasons. One, is to keep my weekly goal. The other is to try to paint more then I buy. I’ve got more luck keeping the pace up then reducing the pile of shame.

So I'm back water having a little drink since it turns out I had forgotten about the few enjoyable things I did this year and instead believed they were a distant memory.

Anyway, turns out I've painted 50 models this year.

Best thing to do is upload directly to DakkaDakka's galleries and link to that. I do this with all my photos, despite having a Flickr page, because Dakka and Flickr don't always agree, and other photo hosting sites are even worse.

Not everything is entirely finished.

The Wolf Guard terminators were from a friend. Njall was done by Mrs Ulfhednar and the Spartan was commissioned.

The rest was either painted or repainted this year from about May forwards.



Missing from this photo are 7 Celestial Lions and about 15 Guard.

What a fortuitous thread for a new member. Drawn to these threads like a moth to a flame.

The start of the year saw me jumping in with Orks
[/url]
Mostly straight from box, but a few conversions because I'm not keen on the fickle nature of finecast.
Sadly, I don't have/can't find pictures of my Dreadmob Formation I completed then sold after realising I didn't like painting vehicles.

Then everything went quiet for about 7 months until moving home found me interested in plastic toy soldiers once again.
[/url]
and found me completing one of two 'Getting Started' boxes for Sylvaneth.

Last year showed a stunning disparity between 'models bought' vs 'models completed'. A trend likely to continue with the last 2 days of December found me trying out a test scheme for Slaaneshi Space Pirates
