July 2016

One of my more motivated months in a long time. Despite being away for two weeks for work, I finished up some more fantasy figures, bought a batch of figures for the Katzenstein project, and played two games. Even worked on the fantasy rules mash up. Hoping August is this productive.

Disappointed to have missed Historicon...plan to be back in 2017. I also have my eye on two local conventions and the HAWKS Barrage convention.


PAINTING
29 x 15mm fantasy figures: 29 points
---a mixture of large monsters, leaders/characters, and markers
TOTAL: 29 points

On the table:  four units for the Kingdom of Katzenstein; each represents a significant life event:
- Duchess of Bartley "Viva's Own" Guard Grenadiers - named for my dog, very small 15mm figures since she is very small...these are the men who are too small to make the other guard units.
- Carlisle Musketeers - named for my War College graduation site
- Westfield Dragoons - location of my unit armory
- Madison Musketeers - twenty years since graduating JMU

Demon, giants, and other baddies

Elementals...like the iron one best

Cattle to use as disorder markers

Leaders and characters

Lizardmen with their leader

Mummies

Wildling warriors with spears and bows

Mantlets and stakes


GAMES
1 x Napoleoncics using Fate of Battle; played with a new group
1 x Pulp Alley game w/ Junior General and one of his friends

PURCHASES and BUDGET
$250 this month: HUGE lot of mixed Napoleonic figures for my "Imperial" army and to field the 4 units above; I will be able to resell a portion of this
Total for the year: $353
Budget: $347 under budget,
Plan: <$100 per month; on target
Reminder: bases (round), paint, and brush supplies...plus some shield transfers.
