This Month +161

(I bought some stuff today, but it won't ship until June (tomorrow), and I won't get it 'til later, so I will count it in June.)

Big bonus, I bought those 40 Dreamblade minis, which impelled me to rebase and paint them all and about 30 others that had been languishing around.

Titchmonster31 May 2018 12:34 p.m. PST

Bought 4 unpainted Arnhem buildings

Sold 60 unpainted WOR bowmen

Painted 180 28mm WOR

Net winner of a month.

Yearly Total: 300 plus 28mm WOR painted, Zero unpainted lead purchased.

However, June could get rocky on the pace. Plan is to finish 8 units of 24 WOR foot. But we have a vacation scheduled.

I am going to Nashcon so some purchasing is in the air for June.

I definitely did not paint triple digit figures. But I had a nice month.

Bought: 23 15mm Alternative Army Orcs

Painted: 27
* 11 Ral Partha Lesser Demons 25mm

June will hopefully get me close to/back into black. I'm not getting over the mountain this year, I fear, but I am going to get damn close!

May turned out to be an OK month. I was hoping to finish a few more figures but can't really complain. Last years monthly average was about 27 figures this year it's 17. Purchases are down about 75% from last year on average. This will surely go up but I think I end up with a better painted to bought ratio.

Bought-- 0
Painted -- 24 ( 20 28mm Warfare GNW Russian,4 28mm Foundry AWI )

YTD- +64
Bought- 22
Painted- 86

Bit of a disappointment: painted six of the 24 I started, but on the bright side, bought zip.

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP01 Jun 2018 5:23 a.m. PST

Bought zip

Finished 36 6mm Austrian Napoleonic hussars (small but still a lot of different colours!)

I had a busy month as far as reducing the lead pile. Finished off enough of a project to put on a club game, sold off some stuff, and didn't buy too much.

Start: +30 for the year. Apparently this is my first post on the Pledge threads this year, but since I'm at +30 you can tell there hasn't been a lot of activity on my end. That changed this month.

18 15mm tanks
217 15mm Volksgrendier and US Greatcoat infantry

Sold off:
A box of 15mm Polish infantry
A large 15mm True North Romanian army
Two space fleets from MKP
Some random stuff

20 Frostgrave Gnolls
21 Wargods Anubi

The net for the year is now at: +275
The lead pile decreases!

Cornelius Supporting Member of TMP02 Jun 2018 3:42 a.m. PST

None bought but only 4 painted. I suppose it's an advance (at a crawl).

GypsyComet10 Jul 2018 10:33 p.m. PST
