December 2012 Wrap-up

Posted: December 31, 2012 in Monthly Wrap-ups

Miniatures Stats December 2012:

Bought for Month:     49                                                 For 2012:     54  +  (194 pro-painted)

Painted for Month:    0                                                 For 2012:     16

I’ll wave the white flag on my pledge for the year a few hours early.

I bought a box of 5 Plastic Soldier Company Sherman M4’s to build.  My 6 year old wants to paint tanks with Daddy so a box of plastics seems a better start than resin or  metal,  besides I had been itching to see for myself just how these little kits are.  I also picked up a box of 44 Gripping Beast plastic Vikings on sale with some vague plans of actually building a SAGA force or two in the coming year.

Painting just never happened in December.  I worked several extra days, was sick over Christmas, and the other holiday festivities took  my extra time.  When I did have an evening,  I was spent enough to not get to the painting table.

Painting Pledge progress (one 25mm equivalent/week) at 52 weeks into the year with 16 minis done leaves me at -36 for the year.

Happy New Year!

Nothing completed, not sure I even picked up a brush this month.
