To recap the painting tally for September, painting activities generated 710 Painting Points (PP) of output spread across 112 figures and two guns. All completed figures were 25mm/28mm in size. That total is the second largest monthly total to cross my painting desk since I began tracking such in 1995. Hard to believe I have been tracking this stuff for twenty years!
Now for the unit breakdown:
- 28mm Napoleonics: 8 French hussars
- 28mm Great Italian Wars: 10 mounted gendarmes, 2 mounted command, and 6 mounted crossbowmen
- 28mm Spanish-American War: 30 U.S. Marines
- 25mm The Great Game: 23 Russian line infantry, 2 guns and crew, and 24 Sikhs
The addition of these figures brings the Painting Points total to slightly over 3,000 PP for 2015. By averaging 300 PP per month, the 2015 painting goal set back in January of 3,800 PP seems to be within reach. Three months remain and it might be close. Working in my favor towards this goal is the seasonal tendency to increase production during the fall.
Another sign of Fall's arrival, I actually have a FtF gaming session on the schedule for Saturday. It has been far too long since the last outing with the guys. Saturday I will be driving to Coeur d'Alene for a healthy session of Commands & Colors with Scott. My 6mm ancients will be making the interstate trip so I expect to see them on the gaming table.
