TMP link

Well where did March go????? Mainly working strange shifts to sort out final year stuff at work oh and British Summer time stole an hour…So painting time very limited.Also due to the Snow the SHow was cancelled so saved some money!!!

28mm 15 (my Black Friday tanks!!!! :-)

28mm 15 (3xtanks and 12 infantry)

Monthly profit = 0
Yearly Profit = 167

A grimm looking winter on paper for March but April with show some growth. I have about 40 figures waitng to be based and several more with only some details to do. My restraint in purchases has helped keep things looking good. The minis I did buy were painted so a wash and not added either way.

Bought-- 0

Painted -- 0

YTD- +17
Bought- 0
Painted- 17

A great month for me. Painted 14 humans, four mules, a tank (well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, since it was an L3), and a mountain gun, all in 28 mm. To offset that, I bought . . . absolutely nothing!
On the other hand, next month may not play out so well. I have two orders, plus a Kickstarter, outstanding. I've semi-written off the one order which I made last August. The other I'm waiting to see what comes of it. The Kickstarter seems to be coming along, and may arrive late in April or early in May.

Nada. None. Nuttin'.
(I'll count the ones bought this week that arrive next week next month in April.)

2 Seleucid Elephants with crew
10 Seleucid Cavalry
77 Seleucid Infantry
5 Templar Archers
4 Kim Possible, Ron, Shego, and Drakken
2 Character civilians
1 9th Doctor Who
1 Kitty Pride with Lockheed
1 Occult Gunslinger
1 Giant ripping a dude in half
1 Weensy-weensie Cthuloid Skitterer
1 Komodo Dragon
1 Green Lantern Corps Member

I guess that is 107 progress for the month, 296 for the year.

Plan … hmmmm … plan … uh … duh … I have to scrounge some shields, spears, and swords to finish off the Seleucids …

Bought None (well none that were delivered)
Painted 5 28mm pulp

YTD reduction to the pile of 28! (but the Snakeman Nickstarter should arrive soon)…

Now working on more Pulp and some Obelisk Baluchi Skeletons I have had for about 5 years.

More productive than last month!

27 Vietnam 15mm figures
1 28mm modern horror figure
10 6mm space fighters.

Lots of stuff half finished still!

I bought 7 28mm vehicles.

Counting in 28mm equivalent I'm going to say

Off the lead pile: -17
added to the lead pile: +14

better than the +220 last moth!

Griefbringer09 Apr 2018 6:10 a.m. PST

A bit late, but my results were:

- 24 infantry figures (28 mm)

- 15 infantry figures (28 mm)
- 4 oxen (28 mm)

This is much better than January and February, where I only painted one building, though bought nothing.
