So far this year I’ve finished 131 minis, the bulk of which are conversions.

JAN = 30
6 x VMF Bavarian Jägers
24 x VMF British Rifle Volunteers
MAR = 60
24 x VMF British Line Infantry
12 x LOTR Rangers
24 x VMF Bavarian Line Infantry
MAY = 18
12 x VMF British Yeomanry Cavalry
6 x VMF Bavarian Jägers
JUN = 11
11 x SciFi Wookies
AUG = 12
12 x 17thC Scots
TOTAL = 131

VMF = Victorian Military Fiction

I’ve converted many more, as I seem to be at a stage where I particularly like owning bespoke figures (I have masses of unconverted LOTR, ECW, etc to paint but at the moment they’re falling by the wayside).

Perhaps the most significant development has been completing the games room and the terrain boards on which to game, though I have yet to make good wargaming use of this new facility.

Plans are, of course, bold, wide-ranging and numerous in number despite me cutting back on the number of projects for a more productive focus.

A selection of finished minis, in no particular order:

















And the new gaming table in use:

And still on gold here let them lie
'Til the dark lord lifts his hand
Over dead seas and withered land

Haven't been nearly as productive painting-wise this year as much of my time has been taken off selling things after buying out a club member, organizing my things after a move last year, and other distractions. 

However, I have made good in a number other gaming areas:
-Done a good amount of gaming as the relaunch of Chicago Skirmish Wargames has found momentum with monthly gaming happening and this month we're both starting a campaign and going to twice monthly.
-Done a a modest amount of gaming with my son and lots of talking and scheming about gaming.
-Built a pretty cool large starship terrain piece that is something of a centerpiece
-Attended and run large participation games at 2 conventions.
-Occasionally gotten the family to play Heroquest (about 4 times).

So while, not a ton of painting has gotten done, the gaming and social aspect of the hobby has been well attended too.  I do plan to get down to work on more hobbying though.  I've got another 40 figures for my Fantasy Human army about 1/2 done and if I can have them finished before winter I'll have some good momentum built up that might carry through into other projects.

I haven't been as productive this year as I usually am (which, actually, isn't that productive ::)) because, as it turns out, once you are over 50 things start to fall apart  :(.  I just can't get into hobby stuff when I am sick/crocked. However, did get some stuff done earlier.

As part of the AHPC I finished a few of Captain Blood's lovely ECW figures:



Some Rohirrim:




Some Warriors of Gondor:


Mordor Orcs:



A King Charles I command stand:


Salvaged some Perry Cuirassier from ebay:


I also finished 4 bases of 15mm Sassanid infantry that I have yet to photograph (should probably do that this week...) expanded to 14 bases since the 6th month mark; played my first game of Sharp Practice, Field of Glory and most recently a game of Victory Without Quarter; and helped a buddy paint a bunch of Black Templars and IG.

Yup, I'm now 57 1/2, which I think makes me officially in my late 50s  :'(

And, yes, I'm back to counting in 1/2 years. That has become important again lol

It was an  MRI which discovered I had two fractured vertebrae, after about 3 years of trying to work out what was wrong.
Good luck,and keep still :)

I'm making progress...just scattered.  I've been cranking out some WW2 minis, some fantasy, some sci-fi, some secret project stuff, etc.  No big swathes, but just doing tiny projects all over the place.
2022 Painted Miniatures: 191
(2021: 148, 2020: 207, 2019: 123, 2018: 98, 2017: 226, 2016: 233, 2015: 32, 2014: 116)

My major objective for this year was to move house.

This has largely interrupted any plans I had/have for hobbying, but that's not a bad thing as I had just simultaneously crashed out of three projects earlier this year and was in need of a reset.

The moving day is at the end of this month. Once that has occurred and I am settled in my new place I will focus back onto tabletop gaming and reassess what direction I want to take it in.

In the new house I will have my own dedicated office room (something I have longed for for years) which will, I hope, greatly enhance my ability to get things done. At present my only gaming space is a garret in the attic, which has proved highly inadequate.

This is now complete (over a month ago now) and I've taken up the hobby mantle once more.

I painted three miniatures last week and assembled a couple more this week. I think I'm going to try and get another one painted by the end of this week. For me, that's good progress indeed.

Back in the saddle- well done.

This year hasn't been as productive as the last two, but I have been playing far more games. Several Blood Bowl seasons and a few tournaments have taken most of my hobby time, but I did manage to complete:

* 2 Blood Bowl Teams
* 2 Blitz Bowl Teams
* A Silver Bayonet warband
* Two 1/72 Dragon Rampant warbands

I have a lot to do in 2023. I'm trying to get my hobby projects at a certain "nearly done" place by the time I turn 50, and I'm 48 on Dec 31st. I'm seriously considering a "Purchase Free '23" to plow through the backlog. What I have to do:

* 3 Blood Bowl teams
* 4 Blitz Bowl teams
* 1 Dungeon Bowl Team
* a collection of assorted coach, ref, and star player BB models
* DungeonBowl doorways and dungeon dressings
* 2 warbands for LotR Dragon Rampant
* 2 warbands for Hundred Years War Lion Rampant (1/72 - also with fantasy elements)
* 2 warbands for English v Welsh Lion Rampant early medieval
* English warband for Silver Bayonet
* Gaslands Punk gang
* Many 1/72 Dark Future/gaslands foot models

I have a lot to work on....

Ugh, way too envious of Codsticker's paintwork and backgrounds for his pictures.  You suck! :D
