2020 painting with Midwinter Minis

Lots of us have been doing a 2020 miniature painting retrospective this week. This video from Midwinter Minis provides a great summary of Guy’s year of painting:

All up this is 419 miniatures and terrain pieces. Very impressive!

I’ve bene enjoying everyone’s retrospectives. I would love to join in, but if there’s one thing I have learned in 2020 it’s that I need to sort out my storage arrangements for my painted miniatures. At the moment they are scattered across several locations and it’s not easy to just pull out the latest (or any specific set). Other than continuing painting through my collection, making the painted models easy to get back out is high on my list for 2021.

    Funnily enough, Dave, about the only thing I seem to manage well is sorting out where minis are going to go. This means that once they’re cleaned, based and primed they can sit in their relevant boxes – OK, this means finished and unfinished minis live together, but so what! In some cases I have to occasionally shuffle stuff about, but I’m usually a couple of empty storage boxes ahead of what I need. To me, this almost works like your tray system, since I reckon I’ve only got about a year’s worth of stuff primed in the boxes ready to paint!

      Sounds like a good system to me! I am always happy when I pull a older model out for painting and it’s already primed.

    Guy’s put my 2020 to shame! I’m hoping to do a little better in terms of results in 2021, and have a tentative system and list of what I want to do and when I want it done, but…we’ll see how that works out.

      What helped me was less planning what models I wanted to paint, and more making time for the actual painting (which meant less time on things like social media and computer games).
