First figures completed for 2021 are a 28mm Napoleon alongside Mameluke Ali. and a Marshal Soult figure. First off, Napoleon and Ali:
In spite of the fact I have purchased a fair amount of Perry Miniatures product over the years, this is the first time I have actually managed to paint any up. I came across this pack while I was looking for some Perry French cuirassiers and realised they had been languishing in the pile for eight years, and thought it was about time they received some attention, along with Marshal Soult who was in the same pack:
It was nice to get back into some 28mm Napoleonics, and I have five regiments of cuirassiers on the painting table at the moment which is proving quite an undertaking, but a welcome change of pace.
As for the final 2020 count, I managed to complete 1551 figures of 310 horse and 1241 foot and cavalry figures. These were mainly 15mm figures across two armies, in the Tibetans and Republican Romans. I also manage to complete a 15mm Numidian army, a few DBMM camps and wagons, plus 25 GHQ WWII ships, so all up a record effort.
I'm not expecting to come anywhere near that in 2021, especially as I expect to put in a concerted effort to clear more 28mm figures out of the pile. I'm also going to drastically reduce purchases and try to limit it to just supplies such as paints and brushes as, in the process of tracking down the cuirassiers, I realised I will need a couple of lifetimes to complete what I already have. That is unless something new, shiny and irresistible comes along, of course.
