Hi all

Last months update

TMP link

So the plan for this month was
1) Paint the Egyptian infantry (YEAH)
2) Paint the last of my Arab Cavalry (9 x 28mm figs)(YEAH)
3) Buy nothing!!!! (OOOPS)

28mm – 9 (Black tree got me with their offer)

6mm – 384 The Egyptians are done
28mm – 9 The arab cavalry for the crusades is done

Monthly profit = +384 (yeah staying in the postive)
Yearly profit = +514

So a really productive month for me.

Plan for October
1) Paint 28mm Russian tanks (my almost 3 year old has told me I have to do them)
2) Behave myself at the 2 shows this month

September 2017 total:

Bought 101 (almost all fire sale Spartan stuff)
Sold 0
Painted 3 (more Warmahordes Skorne, for a starter league)

Year-to-date totals:
Growth -354
Painted 17

Net growth is still negative, and a few more things got painted.

Flea market coming up in October, so we'll see if I can sell more than I buy.

Work, riding and a wonderful family wedding kept the painting limited looking forward to a better October but can't complain about such a productive September on all fronts.

Bought 3
Painted 8(Unknown Colonial Indian cavalry 25mm ) 6 ( Perry AWI 28mm)

Monthly profit +11
Yearly profit +71

I painted eight humans, a horse, a dog, and a treasure chest. OK, not impressive, but on the positive side, I only bought four figures (one of which is already painted).


P.S. OK, actually, I bought three other figures, but they haven't been delivered due to the flooding in the Houston area. G

Bought zero unpainted. Bought 300 Painted.
Painted Zero.
But still up a couple hundred for the year.

spent painting time painting for myself so got 500 figures done. Also didn't buy anything. So after 9 months I am at -80 for the year

The goal was to finish off my 28mm Quar, but I didn't quite make it. Still, the lead pile went down, assisted by a couple of sales. Between selling off a few projects and finishing up a few armies and not buying much, I'm making progress. Not that you can tell from the boxes of lead everywhere….

Start: +722
Sold: 51 Fanticide Creeps and 12 MERCS MERCS.
Painted: 13 Norman knights and 26 Quar
Bought: 0
End: +824 for the year.

Is that success? I don't think so.
