Pass in Review: JAN-JUN 2016

Publishing photos of each unit as it emerges from the painting desk offer a sequential journal of project progress.  The expanse and growth of a forest, however, can be masked by only focusing on each passing tree.  Same holds true for painting progress.  As units are churned out from the workbench, it is easy to lose sight of actual volumes generated over time.  To remedy that loss of perspective, offered is a Pass-in-Review of figures crossing over from bare lead to painted units in the first six months of 2016.  Units are presented in the order from which they mustered from the painting desk in 2016.

While two more days remain in the first half of 2016, no more new units will be mustered before the last day of June.  The semi-annual state of painting analytics recap will make its regular appearance after the quarter properly comes to a close.  From the painting analytics, I will see if progress towards 2016 goals is being addressed and kept on track.  For now, on to the figure parade showing results for the first two quarters of 2016.

  8. Gosh. It certainly builds up doesn't it?

    1. Builds up quickly and the quantity produced does sneak up on one. Boxes of figures stacked everywhere ought to be a clue to what is transpiring. Still, when put together, it does build quickly.

  9. What a great output Jonathan. At that rate, even if you have multiple projects on the go it won't take long for credible forces to be assembled.

  16. A great looking if rather eclectic grouping. How about a group photo at the end of the year?

    1. Eclectic, for sure! End of year group photo is a possibility and a good idea. Will do do likewise?

    2. I did my first year blogging, and think I should bring the tradition back. It looks fairly impressive in 6mm...

    3. I think you should! I love seeing masses of troops on the table.

  17. A simply staggering amount of output, Jonathan, and of a very high quality. I don't know how you do it. Sometimes I think you have a basement full of abducted war gamers that you keep chained to painting benches. But that would be unethical. And weird.

    1. Very kind of you, Michael! With all of the travel and other demands on my time, I really do not spend that much time at the painting desk. Over the years, I have found that a black undercoat topped off by a Minwax stain speeds up painting considerably. Holding painting PoW would be unethical and weird, for sure!
