Though I am very late this year I still wanted to post last year's painting progress. Though I may not have gotten everything finished that I wanted to, especially that board game, I did manage to knock out a few big projects. I'm especially proud of the fact that I finally finished a project I started back in 2020. First up was the remainder of my Ghost Archipelago project. Next I completed what I had of my Warhammer Imperium subscription before I came to my senses and canceled it. I also managed to clear my desk of all the random miniatures that had accrued on it. Buying into a small historical wargame this year I really impressed the wife by painting it immediately. My Robotech box was finally finished after two years of waiting for me to actually figure out how to paint them. In the end I didn't exactly get them how I wanted them but roughly painted is still better than just primed. I also created my first three cars for Gaslands. I started a joke squad of Teenage Mutant Ninja Tau. Taking the joke further I even painted some Foot Clan proxies. I even got around to painting my Ion Age miniatures which renewed my interest in the system so much that I'll be buying into the games this year. All together it's not my most massive horde but I'm still impressed. It honestly didn't feel like I painted that many miniatures this year. Final numbers: 180- Figures/Vehicles 1- Christmas ornament TOTAL: 181 Only seven figures down from last year, I'm certainly surprised by that. I didn't hit my stated goal of three hundred this year but it's okay, I focused more on the project's I wanted to paint. I also didn't get stuck painting too many batch projects either which was nice. *Note though some models may not in fact be the actual models from this year I did my best. It's hard to pull the exact model when dealing with so many, especially it they all look the same.
It's safe to say I had an amazing year. I learned so much in 2016 and hopefully I can learn more in 2017 and continue to improve. These pictures are in no particular order. Edit: Oops, I just noticed that 11 of the first 18 minis I actually painted this year, in January. This is why I should have put this post together sooner. Oh well. Less those minis, the rest I painted in 2016.
