Miniatures painted in 2018

I had a successful year of painting, at least by my own goals. With over 170 models painted I took a big bite out of the pile of unpainted miniatures – or would have, had I not acquired over 160 models during the year!

Here’s almost everything I painted:

Terrain dominates the results this year, with the tablescapes dungeons, citadel trees, and Warhammer 40k industrial terrain all receiving attention.

I still managed to paint a dwarf Blood Bowl team and Shadespire warband, both purchased in 2018.

I also managed to paint models which have been laying around for many years, including the elf wizard on the far right above, who has a copyright date of 1984 on his base!

In 2018 I kept myself motivated not by having a numerical target, but a target of as much painting activity as possible. That change of method worked for me as I managed 177 models this year, compared to 100 last year.

Each time I painted I would take a photo of my painting tray, even if the progress was barely visible. This gave me a visual record of progress over the year and models came and went.

(I’m hoping the above slideshow displays as it didn’t while editing this article).

I’ll keep the tray for 2019 but do something a bit different with it this time. I will also keep my activity target too.

    Slideshow, confirmed!

    From a purely aesthetic point, I like the terrain models more than anything.

    One day I’ll have to look at your posts not in the app as I can never see the slideshows in it. Never-the-less, that is an impressive horde.

      I had no idea that was the case. I notice that slideshow is not an option with the new WordPress editor, maybe that is the reason.

    As TIM says, that’s a nice hike in the numbers, and a great number of models painted by anyone’s standards as well. Better yet, they all look great!
