Due to a last minute burst of painting energy, I painted 15 figures in May. Not particularly impressive. On the other hand, not only did I not buy any figures at all (for the second month in a row), I sold off a bunch of things, specifically 58 men and 33 horses and mules.

For the year:
Bought: 35 figures
Painted: 96 figures
Sold: 64 figures

So, there are 125 fewer figures in the lead pile than there were at the beginning of the year. I'm starting to think this might be a good year.

Next month, finish the British!!!

Got alot done but picked up more as well. Took a little time away from painting last month but I feel energized again. I bought a ton of plastic sprues to sell, thinking I would keep the partials since they correspond to stuff I have/am building so that really skewed my numbers.

192 28mm Dark Age/Frostgrave plastics
12 28mm Dark Age Scots
24 Hellenistic light infantry

12 15mm Skythians
116 15mm Ptolemaic
14 20mm ZANLA types

Bought – 228
Painted – 142
Total this month – -86
YTD -150

I started on my Ptolemaic army last month and realized I had no skirmishers, so I had to buy some. Things should be better this month. My Fireforge Byzantine KS came in so I am not buying minis this month, I don't think. and the painting lineup is looking good. Should be a productive month.

in super late for the book keeping.

54 painted
212 acquired

540 previous + 54 = 594 painted
283 previous + 212 = 495 acquired

-45 for the year. Big hit on the progress
