2019 Round Up

Time for my year in review...sorry for the wall of text, this serves as my hobby diary.
I got in lots of painting over Christmas to start things off right in 2020...52 figures (Werewolves and Centaurs)...that all need to be based until I get credit!


My plans are to keep rolling with the Slaughterloo figures...Hares, then Otters, Halflings and Trolls. 


First and last pictures of 2019...Sci-fi skirmish game, and the 2nd batch of Slaughterloo figures awaiting basing.

4- Keep spending to <$1800 total... I can do it!
5- 15mm fantasy if I get into a slump
