A little better than last month, but summers seem to be unproductive for me. The weather has not helped I am nearing the limits of what I can store before spraying the finish on the figures. We've had several weeks of high humidity. Enough whining, here's what I did.
Bought 0
6 Soviet WWII fighters
21 ACW Inf

Total 27, prior year to date 211, new year to date +238
Still within striking distance of my goal for the year of 500 figures painted.

Quite pleased with myself. I usually fall apart this time of year but I have held on. Looking to keep it going throughout the year.

In August, I painted 26 figures. Eighteen of these were Red Army for the Russian Civil War. I also assembled and painted three of Wargames Atlantic's Lizardmen.
Unfortunately, I got three orders of figures in August, totaling 52 humans, a horse and a cart. A bunch of these were ordered before the end of June, and really should have come in July, but they didn't.
While I'm in the hole for last month, I am still positive for the year, with 160 figures painted versus 147 bought.
