Happy New Year From The General

Well another year has passed us by and it has not been a great year for me in terms of my hobby.
It seems that a lot of people on their blogs are already writing lists of projects to do with figures to paint for 2017 and if you do follow this blog then you will know that I have never done this as it would put pressure on me to complete certain tasks that I set myself at the start of the year.

So all I can say is that I must start painting again as I have only painted 35 figures over the past four years. That does bother me as when I started to do this blog, I set out to paint about 100+ figures a year.

So what has happened in 2016? Well I did do a lot of reading which I have never done before and that seems to be a substitute for not painting. Collected a few terrain pieces and I have even cleared up my little wargaming cupboard.  Also another reason why I have failed to do anything is that there has been no new figures to collect over the past couple of years. If and when the plastic companies do then it might just light that spark which I need.

Still a new year is about to start and I would like to wish you all especially my followers all the very best for 2017. I will keep this blog up to date with the lapels that I have started and hope to add some pictures of the units I have painted over the years.
