So this post is way overdue, but better late than never!
All together I managed to finish 39 models last year. A slight improvement over the previous two years, which surprised me a bit as I felt I hadn’t gotten a lot done. But, as always, I’m very happy with each finished model, happily admiring them in my display cabinet even now.
- Necron Warriors (10 models)
- Shadow Piercer
- Blood Warriors (5 models)
- Black Templar Initiate
- Primaris Revelator
- Firstborn Space Marines (2 models)
- Zarbag’s Gitz (9 models)
- Dark Angels Intercessor Sergeant
- Elf Cleric
- Revelators Biker
- Ork Boyz (2 models)
- Necron Royal Warden, Cryptothralls and Plasmacyte (4 models)
- Ultramarines Intercessor
The definite highlights of the year were the Gitz and the Primaris Marines. Each of the Gitz was a character in their own right, and I had a lot of fun discovering and painting all the little details, as well as coming up with the different colors and freehand patterns. And even though there were a lot of models, gobbos being small models made progress feel quick.
The Marines were pretty much polar opposites – big models that were mostly about edge highlighting. That’s not to say to say I didn’t enjoy painting them. They were actually my first Primaris Marines, and I got to say, they are a treat to paint. Can’t really pick a favorite out of the five, though the Dark Angel is a pretty good candidate on the account of winning me my first painting competition!
Despite making good progress on the hobby bingo card, I failed again to finish a complete row of five. Oh well, with 12 squares claimed it was the most completed card I’ve managed in the four years I’ve attempted this! As I said in the last post, I don’t have high hopes for this year’s card, but I’ll keep on painting and claiming squares where I can.
To finish off this post, I’d like to thank everyone who visits the blog to look at the pictures or read my thoughts. Even as the blog is less active now, there’s still a relatively steady stream of visitors and views each day which, to be honest, still boggles my mind!
