Hi all

Last months update
TMP link

So another month has gone by and the lead mountain is still there. April was a busy month at work so painting time was limited. Saturday saw the rearranged Hammerhead show and my willpower was low so the mountain has grown this month

28mm -81 (WWII – Soviet ARmy box set was cheap!!!!)

Painted -
28mm – 5 (German Tanks)

Monthly profit = -76
Yearly profit = +91 (still in the positive)

Plan (unchanged from last month)
1) Paint more 28mm infantry
2) Start the 6mm cavalry

March had set me up for a succesful April. I saw Fife&Drum was raising prices and changing packaging so I got a few figures as "samples". Then while on vacation I stopped into a game store that had some figures that would be useful for Swashbuckling/Pirate games so bought them. I'm hoping to maintain the painting/not buying program for the rest of the year but old habits are hard to break.

Bought-- 22 (18 28mm F&D AWI, 4 28mm WizKids Barmaids and Dancer.)

Painted -- 45 ( 20 28mm Warfare GNW Swedes,18 28mm Foundry AWI, 3 28mm Artizen Pirates, 4 28mm John Jenkins Chinese.)

YTD- +40
Bought- 22
Painted- 62

I enjoyed Adepticon again but still have not managed to finish painting anything. Perhaps May will be better.

YTD Purchased: 41
YTD Painted: 0

In spite of having to do my taxes this month, I finished painting 12 humans and one horse size fantasy creature. Better yet, I bought nothing!

*FINALLY* finished those !@#$!@ remaining 3 Elven Heavy Cavalry. Cavalry just always takes so freakin' long…

Painted: 3
Sold: 24
Bought: 62

YTD: -23
188 figures in the lead pile.

Good news is that this is my only "big" haul for 2018. I'll probably need the rest of the year to finish all these. And better news is that I only have 14 cavalry figures left to paint! Give me troops anyday! ;)

Painted 11 28mm (Frostgrave and mobsters)
Bought 55 (AB 20mm and Frostgrave

Total for the year bought 55, painted 39 (acquired for free 110)

Oh dear, but it was Salute and a Nickstarter. I also got various free figures which don't count, and my brother gave me 96 Citadel and Ral Partha from 1980 some quite collectible.
