2017 Review

This past year has seen the smallest amount of time devoted to painting and playing in a decade, and there were so many factors that got me to that point.  A change of location, larger family commitments, kids sports, returning to school, and work all contributed, for sure.  I barely found time for a game, and perhaps that prevented me from wanting to paint much, too. I managed to play 10 games of Flames of War and a single game of X-Wing.   Now that I'm back in California, maybe I'll find some more games and feel like theres a purpose to painting all of these little tanks.

Again, I didn't paint much for myself, but I did knock out a pretty large commission for my friend Sam.

I actually got quite a few miniatures painted with Sam's commission army included, more that double what I managed last year.  I also painted more than I purchased, so that's a win.  10 Flames of War models purchased, 1 Imperial Assault figure, and 22 Flames of War painted, a 2:1 ratio!


  1. Looks good!

    Somehow I need to get your email so we can set up some games together!

  2. Wonderful looking units, lovely painting and basing...
