The adventures of a wargames amateur trying to get stuff painted and the real life that gets in his way

What I did (but didn't show you) and didn't do in 2016.
It's that time of year again. 2016 is having it's arse kicked out that back door and we are waiting with a lump of coal and a dram for 2017 to show it's face. It's traditionally the time for bloggers to look back at their year and review their work. I don't think I want to do that though. All you have to do is a click a couple of buttons and you can go through all the posts from the last 12 months. Don't be so lazy. What I will say is that I managed to paint around about 256 figures this year bit not all of them got time on the blog for various reasons. Some were initially painted for Scalecreep.
Orc Captain on his pride and joy.
Some were painted for games but missed the chance to feature in a blog post.
Not Robin Hood and Friends for the November game
Some didn't suit the tone of the post ;)
Copplestone Gunslinger Droid
And some I didn't think you'd be interested in.
Late War German Platoon and support
And scenery to go with it
What I find more interesting is the stuff that I started but never quite got round to completing for various reasons.
Confrontation Tech Gang
Intergalactic Scumbags and A little Olley Giant
Late 16thC shot
Late 16thC Spanish Pike
More late 16thC Spanish
Tilean Gang as a present for a mate
A unit of Orc's for my Greenskins army.
That last one is particularly shameful as they are only a session or two away from being done. Still, easy win for January.
Till then, I hope you have a great New Year and 2017 is a lot less awful than 2016.
