So that was 2013! Looking back at my New Year's Resolutions I don't appear to have achieved any of those listed so they may have to become 2014's!
However I have achieved two objectives I set myself at the start of 2013. First off was to try and post once a day on the blog and this I have achieved (this is post 365!). By and large I think the posts were worthwhile though maybe I pushed the boundary a bit on day when I posted about some paint I bought! :-)
You may also recall that I set myself a painting challenge at the start of 2013 to paint 365 miniatures (one miniature being one vehicle, figure or base of smaller figures). Despite being worried that this would be a bit of a stretch I hit the target in July and have managed to paint 509 miniatures (many 28mm) in 2013.
Here are some of the highlights...
|British Land Ironclad|
|1/300th ONESS Panzergrenadiers|
|French Foreign Legion in Mexico|
|1/144th Ilya Muromets|
|20mm German Late War infantry|
|Knights of Chaos|
|Troupes Coloniales Umbongodwongolese Hafelins|
|Fantasy Tribe Gnolls (painted after 34 years!)|
|1/144th Blackburn Kangaroo|
|1/285th IDF Magach-3|
|French Foreign Legion in Dahomey|
|Empire of the Dead Gentlemen's Club|
And of course there were lots of Gromits! :-)
