I'm pretty happy with this month overall. Did a fair amount of painting and made a few trips to some different hobby stores where I picked up the Stag and the Huey. I always try to buy something when I visit a shop. The Germans were the free plastic ones that came with WI.

I hope to get some more Empress Vietnam during Cold Wars but I'm feeling good about the year right now. Focus is the word to keep in mind.

Bought = 8 (WWII Germans 28mm-6, Stag 28mm-1, Huey Hog 1/48th-1
Painted = 36 (GNW Russians 28mm-12, USMC 28mm-12, NVA 28mm-8)

Monthly profit = +24
Yearly profit = +7

Picked up the Dredd game which added to my mountain. Unable to paint again for most of this month due to medical issues but did manage to assemble a lot of plastic.

Purchased: 76 (YTD)
Painted: 5

Short painting sessions are about all I can handle at the moment so I'm going to experiment with Contrast Paints using my pile of plastic zombie survivors.
