So this is my year in review. It was a strange year, what with working from home since early March. I initially thought that would mean I'd paint more, but after spending 8+ hours every day sitting 3 feet from my painting desk but working, it really didn't work out that way. Eventually I was able to get some stuff painted so things are working better now. At the start of the year I decided I wanted to not just pick up some random Star Wars Legion stuff to paint, but to actually play the game. Unfortunately everything shut down before I could watch a game at the LFGS. After I got enough prepped at home, my very patient and understanding wife agreed to play some small games so I could sort out the rules. It must be reasonably fun for her, we just played a game on Monday.... Eventually the store opened up for play again and I got in about a half dozen games before the latest wave hit and put a stop to that. If all goes well we should be back to playing in a couple weeks. As far as painting: That was my output for the year. I count it as 52 figures (51 bases but the e-Web has two Snowtroopers on the base.....). Not bad at all for me, especially considering it took me two months to paint the first unit of Stormtroopers and I had a big slump during the hot part of the summer where my output was nil. As you can probably tell, I play Imperials. And, because I'm using the premium bases and painting them, I can only field what I've painted. So I've been pushing on painting Imperials. The only rebel unit I've painted is the Rebel Veterans. The LFGS rain a painting contest online during the shutdown and I figured painting yet more white and black wasn't going to impress.... Here is the breakdown: Rebels: 1 box of Rebel Veterans Imperials 2 units of Stromtroopers 1 unit of Scout Troopers 2 units of Snowtroopers 1 e-WEB heavy blaster team 2 units of Speederbikes Darth Vader (the starter box edition) General Veers and the Imperial Officer and FX-9 Medical Droid from the Imperial Specialists Personnel Expansion. Looking forward to 2021 I still have a lot of Imperials left to paint. Luckily most are assembled, some are primed and a number of Stormtroopers already have a wash and drybrush done. This is good because I got the Clone Wars starter for Christmas (awesome wife strikes again!) so I'll be starting to assemble Droids soon....
