A wee bit late, here is a visual roundup of the miniatures I painted in the 2016 calendar year. I got off to a rapid start by attacking my Shelf of Shame in January, finishing 39 half-started figures by the end of the month: The whole Scooby Gang, female magicians and pirates, a small squad of driders, a few good monsters, some utterly enchanting Tom Meier elves, and some useful fantasy, modern, and sci fi characters. Things slowed down considerably after that, but I got some good work done in several pulses. Chaoswolf's lovely Box O' Goodwill project dropped some old school lead in my lap, and I enjoyed painting those sometimes chunky, sometimes elfin vintage figures. Summer brought some useful dungeon wall and floor terrain, which I hoped could be used for figure photography as well as gameplay. Some Doctor Who miniatures new and old were next, and the year's painting finished up with some cowboys converted to Githyanki and one magnificent and three slightly ridiculous vampires.
